The Atlanta Marriott Marquis is a 52-story, 168.86 m (554.0 ft) skyscraper in the city. The building was designed by Atlanta architect John C. Portman, Jr. with construction completed in 1985, and because of its bulging base, it is often referred to as the "Pregnant Building".

One of the defining features of the Marriott Marquis is its large atrium. It was the largest in the world upon its completion in 1985, at 470 feet (143 m) high. The atrium spans the entire height of the building and consists of two vertical chambers divided by elevator shafts and bridges. The record was later broken by the Burj Al-Arab in Dubai.

The 42nd floor features a concierge lounge that is only open to guests staying on the 42nd through the 47th floors.

For The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, some scenes of the Capitol were filmed here.
