The Empress of Little Rock

Quapaw Quarter

The Empress of Little Rock is an award-winning bed and breakfast in the Quapaw Quarter historic district of downtown Little Rock. Part of the SOMA neighborhood  and a five minute drive to the River Market, The Empress is at the center of all there is to do and see in Little Rock. 

The AAA-Four Diamond rated boutique hotel offers luxury accommodations including SPA suites with Jacuzzis and aromatherapy steam showers. Also available onsite are premiere event facilities including a well-equipped conference center.

Guests of The Empress can indulge in an elegant tea held each Sunday (by reservation), or relax on the 200 ft. veranda overlooking the gardens. A decadent two course gourmet candlelit breakfast is served each morning by staff in period attire. Patrons also enjoy free wi-fi and free private parking, concierge services, as well as complimentary coffee, snacks and bottled water. The mansion has intrigued guests for years with legends of its owners’ ghosts.  Don’t miss the card room.
