The Empress Inducted into TripAdvisor Hall of Fame



The Empress of Little Rock, a historic bed and breakfast in downtown Little Rock, Arkansas, is proud to announce that it has been recognized as a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame winner. The Certificate of Excellence award celebrates excellence in hospitality and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve great traveler reviews on TripAdvisor. The ‘Hall of Fame’ was created to honor those businesses that have earned a Certificate of Excellence for five consecutive years. Winners include outstanding accommodations, eateries and attractions located all over the world that have continually delivered a superior customer experience. Winners of a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence hail from all around the world, but only the top 10% of hotels in the world achieve the award. The Hall of Fame is therefore an even more exclusive club, and one that The Empress of Little Rockis proud to be a member of.

The success has created a new high point for the Empress, which has won numerous local and national awards and accolades.  Sharon Welch-Blair, owner of the Empress said, “Receiving the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence every year was a great honor, and to have achieved a level of excellence sufficient to be inducted into the Hall of Fame is something everyone here is proud to have accomplished. Our team has always lived and breathed the satisfaction of our guests, and we thank all those who saw fit to go out of their way and recommend us to others through the TripAdvisor site. There is no greater endorsement we could seek than the recommendation of our visitors, and for that to result in this honor guarantees we will cherish it.  We feel that this is a wonderful reflection on our brand of “Victorian Southern Hospitality.”

Our aim at The Empress of Little Rock is to maintain our highest levels of service, accommodation and food at all times, achieved by our Innkeepers Deborah and Lisa, House Manager Jessica and the whole team’s passion and commitment to provide a positive customer experience to our gueTripAdvisor-Hall-of-Famests.”
