. In the center of downtown Little Rock the Capital Hotel is in an ideal location for both business and leisure travelers. The Arkansas Museum of Discovery- the Arkansas Art Center- the Old State House- and the William J. Clinton Presidential Center are all within easy walking distance. In addition- the hotel is just a 15-minute drive from the Little Rock National Airport/LIT. .
The Capital Hotel was borne of an *idea* of what the greatest sort of luxury hotel could be in the late 1800*s. Sporting- of all things-an elevator large enough to bear a guest and his horse upstairs- a state-of-the-art communications system -the *magnetic annunciator*- and proudly displaying the first electric light fixture to be found in a hotel in the south- a local matron declared the hotel *a capital enterprise located in a capital building.* the name stuck. The capital was a beacon to southern culture in its day and over the decades was continuously reinvented to characterize the very best of the south for each time. Today is no different. A family of third-generation Arkansans has lovingly renovated and refreshed this grand lady- and our management and staff are devoted to bringing a new *capital idea* to guests. Having recruited renowned chefs and expert hoteliers- the Capital today revisits southern hospitality and serves as the launching pad for a new interpretation of southern food ways- created and called by executive chef Lee Richardson- *new Americana cuisine.* one can say it*s the latest of the Capital ideas that have animated the hotel since it arrived on the scene in antebellum little rock. Today the Capital Hotel is *the front porch of little rock* the portal to a rich and rewarding experience of the best of the region and the authentic welcome that warms the south. We are committed to bringing new ideas to old favorites- to providing relevant and meaningful tastes- sounds and textures to our guests- so that each leaves our door touched by something real that can only be found right here.
