Description
The Capital has been regarded as Little Rock’s “front porch,” a beacon to southern culture since President Grant stayed as a guest in 1876. Following a multi-million dollar transformation, today’s guests enjoy the ease of a modern luxury hotel yet with the complement of an approach to service refined by over 130 years of experience.

Located across the street from the original Statehouse, The Capital has been the “Grand Dame” of downtown life in Little Rock for more than a century. Within walking distance is access to the Clinton Library, the Arkansas Art Center, the Museum of Discovery, the Rivermarket, the Witt Stephens Nature Center, the Historic Arkansas Museum, historic buildings, and the Riverwalk along the banks of the Arkansas River.
