The Edwin Hotel is a purpose-built addition to the Bluff View Art District, proudly standing where the Walnut Street Bridge connects downtown Chattanooga to the North Shore.
Named for the famed bridge engineer Edwin Thacher, the hotel serves as a literal connector—from downtown to the North Shore—and figurative one—uniting guests and the community. The thoughtful and unique execution also resulted in the connection of this Chattanooga hotel to one of finest lifestyle hotel brands in the world, Marriott’s Autograph Collection.
The brand’s touch-points, service and environments embody a modern Southern point of view, a unique sense of style, a spirited sensibility and sincere hospitality. We ingrained a spirited local connection by curating art from area artists and designing spaces that entire community will be drawn to visit.
The environment is enlivened by the beautiful and adventurous natural surroundings—whether you’re taking in the ranging view from the rooftop bar, Whiskey Thief, or you’re enjoying the reflection of the sculptural entry signage in the water below.
The guest rooms are layered and luscious, romantically comfortable with an array of deliberately contrasting details both familiar and surprising.
Perched above Ross’s Landing on the banks of the Tennessee River is our three-meal destination dining, Whitebird.
With offerings of evolved Appalachian cuisine—marrying Southern and Native American culinary traditions—the restaurant is named after Chattanooga’s founder, John Ross, whose Cherokee name was Little White Bird.
Taking its name from the tool used to extract and test whiskey from its aging barrel, this hot rooftop spot offers unequaled views of the river, bespoke cocktails and a spirit that feels authentically, vibrantly Chattanooga.
Personal whiskey lockers, elevated bar food, master mixologists and memory-making touches—like ice cubes heat-stamped with the bar’s logo in signature cocktails—have made Whiskey Thief one of Garden & Gun Magazine’s Best New Bars of 2018.
