An opening date for the Capital Hotel is drawing nearer.
In early April, Arkansas Money & Politics reported that the Capital appeared to be preparing for a relaunch after being shut down for more than one year. The Capital Hotel closed down in late March 2020, announcing in a social media post that “due to the current and increasingly volatile nature of the COVID-19 virus pandemic,” it would be suspending all hotel and restaurant operations.
At the time of the reporting, the Capital Hotel had multiple job postings for management and non-management roles at the hotel and restaurants.
Multiple sources have told AY Media Group that the Little Rock institution is getting ready to reopen soon. Currently, a reopening date has not been announced.
In addition, social media posts have indicated that there are plans to reopen the hotel in the near future.
Arkansas Money & Politics has reached out to hotel officials but has not received any comment.
