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.
The ceilings of our stunning lobby and restaurant are decorated with murals created by renowned New Orleans artist Angela Gregory and lovingly restored. Carved marble walls and a grand staircase lead down to the original bank vaults that held the treasures of Baton Rouge's elite. Overlooking the Mississippi River, our hotel is a monument to the grandeur and history of the city.
