We were really looking forward to staying at the Empress, near the end of our trip through the South. After staying in other amazing places along the way, this place was distinctly underwhelming. When we arrived the innkeeper was very friendly and hospitable. But the long explanations of what we were not allowed to do were a little insulting. I'm not sure if everyone is instructed that ironing should be done on the ironing board rather than the bed. I would probably save that for children. The notices placed around the place were similarly off-putting. Don't touch the thermostat. Don’t roll your suitcase down the steps. While it can help to provide instructions, word them to show people what they should do, rather than what they shouldn’t do. I felt like I was being told off. We stayed in the Victoria's Garden Suite, which was cute, but dated. That would be ok if it was clean, and priced accordingly. This place claims to be boutique and luxury, and I do not object to the price tag that comes with that, but with that price tag comes standards, that this place just didn't meet. It also felt a little corporate for a boutique B&B. I don't want signs in my bedroom about what I can buy in the gift shop. It's tasteless. Also tasteless was the self-congratulatory bio of the owners, in a laminated folder in our room. It's nice to learn about people's lives. But this was more like a history of the owners' climbing the AT&T corporate ladder. We also briefly used the whirlpool in our room (after reading the instructions (!)) only to discover an unsightly scum and dead ants across the bubbling water. Ew. It's hard to criticize this place because they really do smother you with their Southern hospitality. I've read their defensive responses to the (few) negative reviews, and I hope this is taken as a constructive criticism, rather than insinuating that I am "slamming" the place for a "difference in taste" or that I didn't read the website properly.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention, although I wish I'd known before you left. This is absolutely unacceptable. In our 20 years in business we've never had such a complaint. We use a special cleaner for the jacuzzi jets, and provide a special oil, free to guests to keep them clear. My staff house manager takes great pride in her work at the Empress and none of us can imagine what happened to cause this. We have refunded your gratuity. The ants, however, are a force of nature and since we've had so much rain this spring, have decided they like the warm coziness of that part of our inn. We've sprayed regularly, as evidenced by the fact they were dead, but they have declined our invitation to leave. We definitely missed a couple, and feel badly they found their way into your tub. I too, would find that disconcerting. Mea Culpa'. And I apologize that we have to remind people to not iron on the expensive sheets and not roll their suitcases up our irreplaceable heart pine historic stair steps. But the lack of paint on the back steps to the building must speak to you regarding this necessity. We didn't have this problem several years ago and I don't know what's changed. I'm open to your thoughts. However, we don't have signs saying don't touch the thermostats. I'm at a loss on that one. As for dated? Guilty-1930's. The pictures on the website accurately reflect the decor'. Sometimes you have to admit a mistake and try harder next time. Objective criticism is welcome. Critique of personal taste is, well, personal. Different strokes for different folks. We're an historic inn and we struggled and barely nearly didn't open. That's our story, and we're sticking to it. We hope you'll come back so we can do better for you next time.

Beautiful Inn and rooms! The breakfasts were excellent. Only concern: the last day I was there, my room was not cleaned. I was out all day. Thank you, Kathleen

We had never stayed at a B&B before. The sheets and bed were top of the line. Best sleep I have ever had. The staff was very delightful and helpful. The breakfast was two course never had that before and fruit soup... delicious! I am beyond over the moon in love with this place. Maybe next time a spring visit instead of winter.

As a surprise for me, my fiancé booked the Empress hotel for our wedding night. He also made sure to get the chocolate package. The hotel was decorated so beautifully (it was during Christmas) and the chocolates waiting for us were delicious. It was an experience neither of us will ever forget!

While traveling across the country for business, I always opt for a more personal touch than traditional hotels. Well - The Empress of Little Rock was a true gem in every facet. Awe inspiring architecture and design, old world feel and a touch of modern amenities. Hands down the most professional presentation I have ever received by the Empress Staff. The ability to engage and admire the stunning 7,200 sqft mansion was a nice break at night. Full reign of the home, not just your 'room'. Truly a great staff, fantastic breakfast and unmatched customer service. I cannot wait to return to Little Rock and the Empress!

My husband and I spent two nights at The Empress and loved it. Entering The Empress is like stepping back into time. What a beautiful historical place. The staff was super helpful and friendly. They took an interest in our activities and even printed out directions and information for our day trip. Debra worked with my dietary needs and we had a super breakfast. I wish we lived closer!!

When I first found the website for the Empress it looked wonderful. Hoping that the pictures were up to date was a concern. Well, the pictures do not do this wonderful grand lady justice. It is truely a magical place. Perfect. Each room is exactly as pictured if not better in person. The staff is top notch. Deborah and Lisa were fantastic. The type of ladies you hear about but very often never meet. The food is out of this world. I have never had apple soup, pumpkin puff pancakes and the butternut squash pie is awesome. We enjoyed each and every minute of our visit. Beds were so comfortable. Rooms are really large. Its charming, clean and MAGICAL!! Thanks for keeping this grand old lady up and loving her. This would be worth the trip just for a weekend

The Empress was our first B&B experience and I'm so glad we stayed! When we arrived we were greeted with a huge welcome and felt right at home. All of the ladies exuded Southern Hospitality. The parlors and Victorian décor of the empress was incredible. When I saw our room, the Petit Jean Suite, it was full of light and looked so cozy. VERY CLEAN AND LUXURIOUS. After settling in, my husband and I toasted with a glass of complimentary Amaretto and relaxed in our seating area. When we were ready for dinner, the night attendant called us a cab and we made a short trip to Downtown Little Rock. Breakfast the next morning made us feel like true royalty- we feasted on Grand Marnier French Toast, fresh fruit and an incredible peach soup de jour. We purchased the souvenir coffee mug to celebrate our fabulous stay at the beautiful Empress!! We will making reservations for another stay soon!
