Unravel the Rich History of Watermark Baton Rouge

Built as Baton Rouge's first "skyscraper" in 1927, our iconic building served as the headquarters for Louisiana Trust & Savings Bank. Our landmark continues to be informally called the Old Louisiana National Bank building. Owing to the perfect blend of Art Deco architecture and Greek Revival designs, our hotel is one of the most unique and intriguing buildings in downtown Baton Rouge.
