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.

... really good restaurant across from our hotel. Dizzy Gypsy. Now the kids (including Paul) are swimming in the outdoor pool again. My little water babies.
I can't tell you how much fun I am having on this trip. We are all having so much fun. We are sharing an experience that we will never forget from the little moments to the fun-filled activities. We are learning from each other, tolerating ...
We left Texas this morning and have logged 6000 miles and reached our eleventh state, Arkansas. We proceeded on I-30 which brought us through Texarkana, Texas which sits near the border of Arkansas, where Texarkana, Arkansas is located.
We continued along I-30 to Little Rock, Arkansas. We missed the Bush Presidential Library in Dallas, so we stopped to ...
... In any event, we decided to sign up for VBT's hardest trip - the Tuscan Hill towns. The company rates it as moderate/advanced. If we complete all of the riding options, we will cover about 175 miles in six days!
Stay tuned. A splendid time is guaranteed for all.
... s boarding pass had my name on it. Obviously that was a problem, but it was nothing the lovely people of the Little Rock airport couldn't fix. While going through security, a really incredible thing happened, though. Maybe nobody else would think it was, but I did. As I handed the first TSA employee my boarding pass and passport, she said, "Are you with the Rome group?" (That's been our nickname with all the Delta employees thus far.) I said I was and she ...
... the impact the event had upon the community, if they wanted community support. Another presenter had enjoyed better success: The Lincoln Cottage, where Lincoln lived during the last part of the Civil War in a protected enclave known as the Soldier's Home, has just been renovated and reopened. It now enjoys great community support because they support their local youth interested in matters like human trafficking and slavery worldwide. We were struck ...
