The Atlanta Hotel, also known as Thompson's Hotel, was one of the original hotels in antebellum Atlanta, Georgia, United States. It stood at the northwest side of State Square, pre-war Atlanta's central square, on the northwest side of Pryor Street between Decatur Street (then Marietta Street) and what is now Wall Street (which before the war was the railroad track).[citation needed]
