John Hoesli (8 March 1919 – 22 March 1997) was a British art and set decorator. He is best known for being the art director on films such as John Huston's The African Queen, Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Anthony Asquith's Orders to Kill (1958) with Alan Withy, and Jeannot Szwarc's Santa Claus: The Movie (1985) with Don Dossett.
