US: The River City of Chattanooga in Tennessee has welcome its first luxury boutique hotel, The Edwin.

Vision Hospitality Group has opened the property, as part of Marriott's Autograph Collection, at 102 Walnut Street in the heart of the city's downtown Bluff View Arts District. 

The Edwin features 90 guest rooms and suites, with interiors by Chicago-based Gettys Group.

"Our aim is to make The Edwin a cultural hub where both visitors and locals feel drawn to experience our modern day, Southern hospitality.  As a lifelong Chattanooga resident myself, we're so proud to pull from the deep-rooted history of the city to create a new destination where design, art, food and drink capture the spirit of the American South today," said Vision Hospitality Group president and CEO Mitch Patel.

The Edwin's name is a nod to Edwin Thatcher who, in the year 1890, led the development of the historic Walnut Street Bridge that connects Chattanooga's downtown neighbourhood to today's North Shore.

The property is home to multiple food and beverage outlets, including Whitebird and Whiskey Thief, led by executive chef Kevin Korman. Korman's cuisine is "an interpretation of elevated Southern cuisine, showcasing the heritage and hospitality of the Tennessee River Valley". 

It also features art from both established and emerging artists all based in and around Chattanooga.  More than 75 pieces of artwork commissioned from 65 local artists are on exhibit throughout the hotel.  Pieces represent the diversity of the Tennessee River Valley, inspired by the deep history and current culture.
