Atlanta Marriott Marquis Featured in Loki
This hotel is “burdened with glorious purpose.” If you have seen Loki, the newest Marvel series on Disney+, you likely remember the atrium and elevators in the Time Variance Authority (TVA) building. It’s hard to forget the stunning architecture and glass elevator that seem to fit perfectly into the Marvel universe. However, it wasn’t built for Marvel at all. The TVA building is actually a Marriott hotel in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Atlanta Marriott Marquis is a 52-story hotel and the 14th-tallest tower in Georgia. The US$150 million hotel was designed by John C. Portman, and when it was completed in 1985, the 470-ft-tall atrium, complete with Otis elevators, was the largest in the world. It held this title until a luxury hotel in Dubai was constructed in the ’90s.
This isn’t the first time the Atlanta Marriott Marquis has been a part of a film set. It was featured in the Hunger Games franchise as the tribute center in the Capitol and made an appearance in other projects such as Fight and Manhunter. It was also seen briefly in the trailer for another Marvel project, Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Marvel fans who would like to explore the TVA can book one of the 1,663 rooms at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis with rates starting around US$170 a night. As Owen Wilson would say, “Wow.”
