TravelPod Member ReviewsCrowne Plaza Little Rock
I've stayed at the Crowne Plaza many many times since 2006. I've spent more than a year of my life at this hotel. The staff is so helpful and pleasant. I stay here a week at a time each time and although each room is not equipped with a mini fridge, the hotel does have a few and they always manage to get one for me when I call and ask. Dennis at the front desk has been there since I started staying here and even though in the last couple of years I haven't stayed here but once a year, he still remembers me and greets me by name when I walk in the front door. There are other members of the staff that have come and gone and started working since I started staying that are also just as helpful and friendly. I always enjoy walking through the front door every time I stay here.
There is no complimentary breakfast, but there is a huge breakfast buffet for $10 every morning and kids eat free with an adult. If you stay on the exclusive fifth floor there is a separate eating area where you can get things like fruit, water and other small bottled beverages, and last time I was up there, a complimentary continental breakfast was also included. The space has a nice seating area and current newspapers as well so you can relax in there if the common areas on the main floor are full.
There is a nice seating area near the bar area as well with comfy couches where I often wait for visitors and friends because they have a fairly clear view of the front hall. Next to the couches is a full bar and eating area with plenty of flat screen tv's for all the sports fans. The bar tenders over the years have become friends of mine. They're fun to talk to and are generous at their job. I've spent many nights drinking very little but socializing a lot.
There is a very small gym and an indoor/outdoor pool as well.
The nearby area can be somewhat dangerous. Numerous cars have been vandalized in the parking lot so it's advised to not park on the outside of the property and not under good lighting. That can be difficult when the hotel is full.
Nearby, within walking distance, is a Jason's Deli for healthy eaters, a Waffle House and Denny's for those late night cravings. A Kroger is also nearby if you're staying longer like I always do. It's not recommended to walk there after dark however. A P.F.Chang's is across the parking lot if you like Americanized Asian food. I do not recommend the other Asian restaurant across the street, Chi. If you have a car there are many other places nearby for shopping and eating, from enclosed malls, strip malls, fast food restaurants, and neighborhood bars and downtown Little Rock is only a fifteen minute drive east on highway 630. The Crowne Plaza does offer a shuttle service as well if you don't have your own transportation.
All in all, the Crowne Plaza can be a great location for a stay in Little Rock. It gives you a taste of being near nature with a nearness to amenities; all within easy distance to the city center.

... in North Little Rock, not Little Rock. There is just a bit of a difference. We traveled over to Little Rock the same day and saw the Little Rock Central High School where the 15,000 National Guard soldiers had to escort nine young black kids into the school in 1957. This area has been through some difficult times in the past. The school is beautiful and still looks as it did in the late fifties. Everyone that we have meet so far ...
Our last stop was with Lauren and Eric, Luke and John William in Little Rock, Arkansas. The boys had a blast swimming and the girls had some great cuzzie time too. Eric even had a break from call and was able to eat dinner with us. We woke up the next morning and headed all the way into New Iberia. The family was waiting for us with a warm welcome. We all agreed 10 days and about 3000 miles across the country was surprisingly fun! And God blessed us with a safe trek ...
... river into Missouri! Nothing of consequence happened in Missouri. (See the photo attached of the border into Missouri)
Arkansas was next, and we reached our destination slightly after seven! Ahhhh, Country House! (La Quinta Inn, for all of the Spanish speakers in the audience). People come from all over the world to this La Quinta! Even Alaska! (See attached photo of some poor sap who drove down into a 98 degree sauna)

... so tall and so thick that you couldn't see traffic traveling the other direction. I was feeling a little claustrophobic.
As we got closer to Little Rock there was a sign that we were on the “Purple Heart Trail” which are roads etc. dedicated to those in the US Armed Forces that have received the Purple Heart medal.
... in each President's library. Of course, there were a lot of photos and history of his family and the Presidency.
After visiting the museum, we enjoyed lunch at Forty Two, a nice restaurant in the Presidential Museum. Yes, Bill Clinton was the 42nd President. The food was very tasty. Jim enjoyed his muffuletta, but said the original New Orleans ...
