By

Are you planning a trip to downtown Little Rock? These are the best hotels in the downtown area.

If you can't afford the most luxurious, you should check out the list of best budget friendly hotels.

1. Peabody Hotel

3 Statehouse Plz
Little Rock, AR 72201
800-804-6835
The Peabody is famous for the duck march, but they have other amenities for travelers including a health club, babysitting, a great restaurant and bar, a conference center and high-speed connectivity.

4. The Empress

Although a little off the beaten path (it's not exactly as close to downtown as some of the other hotels), it's worth it. The Empress is a 17th century mansion that's been made into an Inn.

Built in 1880 as a gentleman farmer's intown estate, Rosemont is the only authentic Victorian era farmhouse remaining in Little Rock's Quapaw Quarter Historic District. It's close to the convention center, River Market, etc. but not "walking distance." They have a nice breakfast and anytime fax & copier. Their rates are a steal. Rates: $79-125 a night.

6. Holiday Inn

600 Interstate 30
Little Rock, AR 72202, United States
1-501-3752100
Yes, there is also a Holiday Inn downtown and a Holiday Inn is always a safe bet. It's pretty close to all the downtown attractions but not what I could call "walking distance." It's about a mile from the River Market, probably 2 or 3 from the State Capital. Rate: $74-129.
