CHATTANOOGA, TN—Vision Hospitality Group, Inc. will open The Edwin Hotel here, a boutique hotel located in the heart of the Bluff View Art District. The Edwin Hotel will offer 90 rooms, a rooftop bar and a restaurant.
The architect is PV Design, Inc. of Chattanooga, and the designer is The Gettys Group, Inc. based in Chicago. In August, the Strauss Company, a local builder, began construction on the project, which has a projected opening in the spring of 2017.
The hotel takes its name from Edwin Thacher who, in 1891, led the development of the iconic Walnut Street Bridge from downtown to today’s North Shore. The Edwin Hotel seeks to honor this enduring landmark, according to the company.
The Edwin will partner with area merchants and artists to introduce guests and locals alike to regionally sourced products, art, cuisine and outdoor activities such as rock climbing and paddle boarding.
