The multi-award winning AAA FOUR DIAMOND Arkansas accommodations and event facility of our Little Rock Bed and Breakfast were lovingly restored in 1995 to capture the essence of a romantic “Downton Abbey” time while updating the property to meet the needs of today’s travelers, business guests, and brides. Named the #4 Most Romantic in the United States, this small luxury boutique specializes in surpassing expectations. From the moment you enter the foyer of the Grand Sitting Parlor, to relaxing in the hammock in the Moonlight Secret Garden listening to the gurgle of the vintage quartz fountain, this is an experience you will remember!
Home to Arkansas’ only SPA Suites sporting hydro-massage showers with steam and aromatherapy and double jacuzzis, each luxurious guest room/suite at The Empress conveys romance and nostalgia with meticulous detail while offering the utmost in privacy and amenities such as Ipod-Ipad Docking Stations and Free WiFi. Breakfast aromas beckon you to leisurely dining, resplendent with silver service and unrushed conversation, where true Southern hospitality is served along with English crumpets. Downton’s “Carson” finds his counterpart at The Empress with our own dapper bow-tied butler, Robert’–here to meet the needs of our next royal guest-YOU!
Our Little Rock Bed and Breakfast is also the perfect gathering place for business meetings and retreats, events & parties, and beautiful indoor and outdoor destination weddings. Wifi, conference space for 30 attendees, and corporate business rates make it the natural choice for your next meeting.
Whether your visit is for total relaxation, a business retreat, or the wedding of your dreams, your visit will be one that fills you with life long memories, southern hospitality, and complete rejuvenation.
We look forward to welcoming you in person to the elegance and grace that is the hallmark of the experience at The Empress of Little Rock.
Your hosts, Bob & Sharon
