Nestled in the natural and historic beauty of Arkansas’ Hot Springs National Park, The Waters is the perfect accommodation for your exploration of everything the state has to offer.


The Thompson Building was designed by George R. Mann, the principal architect of the Arkansas State Capitol, and it features Corinthian pilasters and glazed terra cotta frontings. A multimillion dollar renovation of the revered structure on Bathhouse Row has yielded a 62-room boutique hotel with vintage details and up-to-date comforts and amenities.

The Waters offers friendly and competent staff, luxurious amenities, a full-service restaurant and lounge, the city’s only rooftop bar and plenty of ways to explore the city and surrounding natural features.


There’s a reason travelers have been drawn to the city and its legendary thermal waters for decades – come find out for yourself. Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, you’ll be sure to enjoy your stay in Hot Springs when you stay at The Waters.

The Rooftop

Aptly named, The Rooftop is Hot Springs’ only rooftop bar, allowing a fantastic view of historic downtown and the scenic backdrop of the Ouachita Mountains.

The Avenue

Eat at The Avenue, a full-service restaurant and lounge offering artisan-style Southern cuisine. Focused on locally sourced ingredients, The Avenue serves a variety of appetizers, small plates, entrees and shareables. The Avenue also boasts the best “people-watching seats” on Central Avenue.


Bathhouse Row is even more beautiful seen through the window of one of our City View rooms overlooking Central Avenue and Hot Springs National Park. Every room offers unique architectural details and an array of locally sourced artwork and complementary products.

Explore Hot Springs

Connect with nature by visiting Garvan Woodland Gardens, venturing out on the lakes, hiking the trails or hitting the greens for a game of golf. History buffs can also check out the Historic Baseball Trail and Gangster Museum of America to get a feel for the city’s rich cultural heritage.
