Finding this B&B on my corporate travel was intriguing. I chose the Murray Room because the bed was in the turret. Upon arrival, I was greeted and given a full tour. The property is massive, beautiful and very well maintained. I enjoyed 2 nights & the breakfasts were delicious. My favorite part of my stay was the secret poker room...

I had so much fun here. The double staircase is awesome. I relaxed on the garden swing and made my way up to the attic rich with history and mystery. Loved it and I am planning on returning in the future.

A stay at the Empress is the only way Little Rock and its southern charm, should be experienced. It is a cultural adventure you should not miss, whether you live outside the state or within it. Our stay here was uniquely delightful--fun, relaxing, and exceptionally ROMANTIC, above and beyond our dreams and expectations. Located in the Quapaw Quarters, a downtown...

We spent 3 nights at the beautiful Empress of Little Rock and were delighted by our stay! The magnificent house is meticulously restored. Everything is period and beautifully done and maintained. The house is spotlessly clean. The rooms and the whole house, everywhere, are gorgeous. The bed is very comfortable, the furniture is beautiful, and all the bathrooms are updated....

This 1888 Victorian home was so much fun to stay in. We arrived after a 5 hr drive in storms and how nice to pull up in front of such majestic home. The architecture is amazing.

What a beautiful and charming place. It's like spending the night back in 1890. I'm not much for lacy things, but it makes my wife happy. Watching her smile as she looks at the antique furnishings and being serve by Debra made us feel like we are back in history. The grounds, room, and living areas are unbelievably kept. Very...
