The Capital Hotel was borne of an *idea* of what the greatest sort of luxury hotel could be in the late 1800*s. Sporting- of all things-an elevator large enough to bear a guest and his horse upstairs- a state-of-the-art communications system -the *magnetic annunciator*- and proudly displaying the first electric light fixture to be found in a hotel in the south- a local matron declared the hotel *a capital enterprise located in a capital building.* the name stuck.The capital was a beacon to southern culture in its day and over the decades was continuously reinvented to characterize the very best of the south for each time. Today is no different. A family of third-generation Arkansans has lovingly renovated and refreshed this grand lady- and our management and staff are devoted to bringing a new *capital idea* to guests. Having recruited renowned chefs and expert hoteliers- James Beard Award-winning Chef Joel Antunes celebrates his return to the American South with One Eleven at the Capital. Antunes melds his food experiences from five continents with the discipline and devotion to the soil learned at the knee Paul Bocuse and his early teachers- complemented by his signature culinary flare.* one can say it*s the latest of the Capital ideas that have animated the hotel since it arrived on the scene in antebellum little rock.Today the Capital Hotel is *the front porch of little rock* the portal to a rich and rewarding experience of the best of the region and the authentic welcome that warms the south. We are committed to bringing new ideas to old favorites- to providing relevant and meaningful tastes- sounds and textures to our guests- so that each leaves our door touched by something real that can only be found right here.
