The Waters Hotel formerly known as the Thompson Building is an important piece of Hot Springs’ history. Built in 1913, this building was originally used as office space for local doctors. Soon after, the upper floors were converted to apartments and a hotel, and later, the bottom level was used as retail spaces. Unfortunately, over the years, the upper floors of the building deteriorated from their original state and were left abandoned since the 1980s. Thankfully, the structure was saved by two well-known architects who, in 2015, began restoring the gorgeous building to the boutique hotel that it is today. This once-partially abandoned hotel in Hot Springs Arkansas is one of the most stunning buildings in the state and you’ll absolutely love its transformation.
