Enjoy warm Southern hospitality at our hotels in Little Rock, Arkansas, where you can visit the State Capitol, commemorate the Civil Rights movement and dig in to a heaping plate of barbecue.
Our hotels in Little Rock are near the gleaming-white State Capitol building at the end of West Capitol Avenue. Arrange a free guided tour of the neoclassical marble interior to view the soaring rotunda and Senate and House of Representatives chambers. Nearby Little Rock Central High School became a national symbol of the desegregation of public schools in 1957. Park rangers at the museum across the street lead free guided tours of the working school. Stroll the neighborhood around the Governor's Mansion past graceful antebellum estates and fanciful Victorians. The riverfront William J. Clinton Presidential Center is a repository of documents chronicling the Clinton presidency. From our Little Rock hotels, join the throng of locals for Sunday brunch at the center's bustling Café 42.
Riverfront Park stretches along the Arkansas River, connecting the Clinton Center with River Market. Pick up home-baked bread and fruit pies from this colorful indoor market. In summer, put together a family picnic from the sweet peaches, tomatoes and fresh cheese in the food stalls filling River Market's outdoor pavilions. Or take the kids to Peabody Park, a riverfront playground with underground tunnels and a fountain for barefoot splashing. At dinner, guests of our Little Rock hotels can order up a Southern meal of fried catfish and collard greens or get messy eating ribs slathered in tangy sauce in the city's many restaurants and barbecue joints.
Book a room at our Holiday Inn® Little Rock hotels in May, when Riverfront Park fills with live music and fireworks for Riverfest, or in October for rodeo roping and carnival rides at the Arkansas State Fair.
