We registered and got settled in. These history folks are pretty interesting. I've met a Library of Congress employee, a park ranger from Plains, Georgia and the director of the Gettysburg battlefield historic site. We took a large tour bus to Hope, AR to see Clinton's birthplace and tour the town. The house was nicely middle class but it was odd …
... 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 ...
... match went to penalty kicks. Brazil won the match on a 3 to 2 on the PK. I have never been much of a futbol fan, but I am getting in to the World Cup. Remember to root for the USA on Tuesday.
After getting everything settled for the night, we are off to the Texas Roadhouse for dinner. Looking forward to an ice cold martini and a good steak and salad for dinner.
Life is good.
... about 8.2 seconds. I look forward to more swimming opportunities for this reason. Ali and I were also recently voted "most likely to be taken home to meet mom and dad," so that's a fun fact. Anyways, today we broke up two century rides with a build day, serving Pulaski County Habitat for Humanity. Ali and I made the initially brilliant choice to catch the second van shuttle to the worksite, which resulted in some nice down time lounging around in the beautiful church youth ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Little Rock Marriott
Nickel and Dimed
Great hotel and location but there are some things you should know. They charge an additional $5 a night "tax" though it's not really a tax. The hotel just charges this because they did renovations to the hotel and are passing the cost on to you. This is in addition to the regular state tax. Valet parking is $13.50 a night and I had to wait 30 - 40 minutes each morning for my car. What a waste of time and money! Also, the doors slam LOUD in the hotel. They charge $5 a day to use their gym. I complained to the front desk that this was absurd. Otherwise - great hotel and perfect location though I wouldn't stay here again cuz of the ridiculous fees that they impose at every possible time!
Very Nice Hotel, However...........
This hotel is a posh hotel. Very clean and service is top notch on all levels. However, if you are here on business be advised that there is no coffee maker in the room, there is a charge to use the fitness room, parking is only valet, and the doors slam very hard within the hotel.
The beds are like the Heavenly beds, very luxurious and there is free high speed internet.
Classic downtown hotel
Recommended. This classic downtown property is attached to the conference center. Prices are somewhat high for the value. Service is first class and friendly throughout. Rooms are large and nicely appointed. Bathrooms well lighted with tile floors and nice amentities. Food was good though nothing special. Overall mainenance was good to above average. Located near to the river and walking distance to the new River market area.
i attended a business meeting in october 2004.
i had a reservation for 2 nights that i made through orbitz. the reception had me in for 1 night. the receptionist told me very coldly that i would have to pay full price for the second night. unfortunately i did not have my reservation with me, but after a long hike to the business center, i was able to print out my reservation and got the matter straightened out.
anyway this marred my experience of an otherwise ok hotel
Our stay on August 4th was WONDERFUL!! Due to the other reviews we choose the Peabody and it lived up to all the praise beginning at the doorman, everyone was friendly and pleasant. The room was everything you would expect in a LUXURY room. Restaurant food was superb. There was very little activity during the evening when we were there, but I would suspect the service would be first class at all times. The evening turndown service was much more than expected. The duck march was amusing and fun.
We plan to put this on our list of repeats to visit again when we need a relaxing getaway!
We stayed here on July 5th for one night on our way to Branson, Mo.
The hotel is very nice and the rooms are very plush.
We just missed seeing the ducks march back to their "palace". If you have kids, make sure you are around at either 11 am or 5 pm to see the ducks march.
I would highly recommend the Peabody!
Stayed while on business. Excellent stay. TV and phone in huge bathroom. Went to dinner, returned and my bed was turned down and chocolates on the night table. All the toiletries that had been used in the afternoon, were replaced with new ones. Friendly staff, great view from room, very comfortable beds..... unfortunately I missed seeing the ducks.
A True Luxury
While in Little Rock attending an Arkansas State Press Association convention,myfellow newspaper, yearbook, photography and literary magazine classmates and I resided at The statuesque Peabody Hotel. I was awestuck by the comforting and classy architecture of the lobby.
The rooms are the cleanest and most pleasing to the concept of feng shui. The room service is very prompt and 24-Hour. Security is also available 24-Hour, but the privacy level was unbelievable. I had no disturbances whatsoever, even when the paper was delivered outside of my door the following morning. An array of food and drink is at your discretion and prepared in a palatable manner. Also, no matter where your room is at the Peabody, you will always have a fantastic view of either the river or the city of Little Rock. I much enjoyed watching the sunset from my commodious bed. This hotel is a fine example of a well organized business and high social standard. I highly reccomend others to attend. P.S. It reminded me much of the Holiday Inn in Springdale by the greenery and fountains, but much larger. P.S.S. Child care and fitness center are available for all guests.
The Peabody Little Rock is a great hotel. The old Excelsior hotel was completely redone. I am sure they spent a load updating it, but it looks fantastic. The new decor is very soft and modern-- new fixtures in the bath room, new beds, sinks, carpet, everything. The hotel overlooks the river, very pretty. They have special luxury touches like robes, cute duck-themed toiletries, and a WONDERFUL pillowtop bed that you have to climb into. You may want to call ahead. During my mid-week stay there were several hundred high school students there for a conference and the place was over run with teens...
Stayed overnight for Anniversary, had a beautiful room with river view.
The room is very nice, not as nice as the Broadmoor, but nice & 1/3 the price. Very comfy bed, good quality towels & toiletries. Room service while pricey was excellent. We're going back asap
