1. Re: Things to do

Little Rock has several national hotel chains and many have pools. I know the Embassy Suites in West Little Rock has a pool and has the free breakfast. I'm not sure if they would meet your budget requirements or not, though. There's a fairly new Hampton Inn (free breakfast) on Shackelford Road--not sure if it's got a pool or not. Also on Shackelford is a Wingate Inn. I don't know about a pool there either but thought you could google both of these for more information. They might be a bit more budget friendly. These are both in West Little Rock.

The Peabody ducks come down to the lobby every day at 11 a.m. and leave at 5 p.m. Either show is fun to see and your kids are at good ages to enjoy it. It tends to be busier/more crowded on weekends so get there a bit early if you want to get up close. I've been at different times and never felt it was overly crowded.

2. Re: Things to do

I agree with Lee4 in all the advice. Embassy is the best suburban hotel with pool and the most fun, with glass elevators, atrium, free cooked breakfasts etc but is also pricier than the more bargain hotels. Below is a list which comes up for hotels in Little Rock with pools. Of these, I suggest you take a look at the Wingate. It has mixed reviews but has a pool, and is affordable and well located in west Little Rock where I suggest you might want to stay. That said, head downtown at your earliest opportunity. See the Peabody ducks like Lee suggests, then ask how to get to the park in back along the river. A short stroll east from the Peabody in Riverfront Park is a new playground with water features which your kids will love. They may have fun on the pedestrian bridge next to the playground. Stop in the River Market nearby for a budget lunch in their food court - no chains, only local owners but very good and affordable. Then head next door to Discovery Museum, a kids science museum with a toddler area. They should have fun there. The zoo is not the best in the world but is worth a visit. It is only 10 - 15 minutes away from the market.

I've stayed at quite a few hotels in LR during business travel and the Embassy Suites in West LR is my vote for sure. The Peabody is also nice.

Another possibility, beside the ones mentioned by jimjade, is the Wyndham Riverfront in North Little Rock. This hotel is located just over the Main Street bridge and is on the trolley line which runs through the River Market district in Little Rock.

I've never stayed there but have eaten in the restaurants on site. It gets good Trip Advisor reviews and does have a pool. I'd check it out on line before making a decision.

The Embassy Suites is a nice hotel but is too far from the main areas of interest in Little Rock. The Wyndham, on the other hand, is located so that you would not need your automobile.
