Little Rock at the Holiday Inn North Little Rock and Clinton Museum
The Holiday Inn in North Little Rock is located right off the interstate and I did have to wait a bit when checking in around 9 pm. It was super quick when it was my turntable hough as they had the key ready. I’m platinum with IHG but didn’t get an upgrade, nor did I ask. Didn’t really care. The room was on the main floor and a bit dated and lighting dim. The carpet was also a little dirty and some of the fixtures cracked. I wouldn’t stay here again unless I got a good rate, this hotel definitely needs a full renovation. But on the bright side I didn’t hear much hallway noise and the bed and pillows were comfy. There was also a fridge and microwave in the room which can be handy.
After checking-out I decided to head over the Clinton Library at the Clinton Presidential Center. Basically it’s a museum about Bill Clinton’s presidency and some of his life in Arkansas prior.

The museum is neat if you’re a democrat, haha. I really enjoyed seeing the repliace of the Oval office, I think that was the best part. I also got to sit in the president’s chair in the cabinet room as well. The movie about Bill Clinton was really good, but overall you’ll have to really be interested in politics to fully enjoy the museum I think. Nonetheless it’s a nice attraction to see in Little Rock, which you can’t see elsewhere.
