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.

... was a reproduction of the White House Cabinet Room. The guide explained the relevance of the seating arrangements which proved to be very interesting. The Clinton Oval Office was very nice and popular, generating lots of questions. The Bush #43 museum sets the gold standard though, allowing guests to walk about the room. The Clinton oval office was only viewable through a few doorways. In a discussion with the tour guide, I questioned why their was ...
... a river which was used in the opening scene of gone with the wind. Love these quirky, random stops off. Once we hit camp we had free time to do as we pleased I just just chilled out. Think everyone was on a downer from Memphis. Apparently were we are camping they are prone to bears and tarantulas this should prove to be an interesting nights sleep ...
... then I would have imagined. God has been parting the ways for us weather wise and we are so thankful, as the storms can be pretty fierce at times. We left early from Ok and arrived here around 2:30 and then the rain hit. Going out for a bite to eat now so I'll be in touch tomorrow. Love June & ...
... Fish. Dad could have his catfish and I got shrimp. We are too predictable! The food was great! We were amazed at how busy the restaurant was on a Tuesday night. We definitely picked a popular place. After dinner we went to the. Riverfront Park and walked the Junction Bridge which is a pedestrian bridge joining South Little Rock with North Little Rock. We had to take an elevator to the top of the bridge. The view ...

We spent some time in the Little Rock River market which was a typical city marketplace with locally grown produce and goods. It was in a great location down by the waterfront. We met some nice folks that were shucking beans in preparation for sale.
We met a nice Reverend and his wife as they were walking around a nice boardwalk area. He invited us down to ...
