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.

Ok so still feel bad this morning, in fact I threw up - can't even remember the last time that happened, perhaps it wasn't the cocktail after all. Peter had a lonely breakfast, as I felt so bad. Eventually got on the road and programmed in first stop Graceland. It was really weird when we got there, it's in a busy scruffy road lined with the usual fast food outlets. You pull into a huge car park (not necessary in January!) and walk to the ticket office, we got the cheapest tour, the ...
... cycle bridge in the USA spanning the Arkansas River about eight miles from downtown. The bridge is part of a fourteen mile cycle and walking route that seemed popular with runners, cyclists and walkers alike and hopefully it will help promote a healthy and active lifestyle.
We finished our time in Little Rock at The Outback Steakhouse which provides a vaguely Australian theme to a fairly standard American steakhouse experience. Being just a few ...
... never really thought that he was presidential material or the best man for the job at that time, however, in light of our current president, I am softening on that position. Once elected, they are owed the respect that the office demands. The 15 minute intro movie hosted by the President was well produced and told his story with great underdog emotion.
The museum was bright, our tour guide was bubbly and pleasant. This museum was divided ...
... at an "On the Border", just outside Little Rock. Andy helped with some chain maintenance, tightening of fasteners, general once over of the bike, as he used to run a motorcycle repair shop in High Point. We rested well that night due to Andy and his girlfriend's hospitality, and that was a good thing, cause we knew we had an even longer day the ...
Really sad to leave Graceland's and Memphis, absolutely loved every minute of it. Another early start as we have a 290 mile journey to make to Arkansas were we are staying at the Queen Wilhelmina campsite 2000 miles up in the mountains. We have decided not to go to hot springs as apparently they have better ones in San Francisco I must say I ...
