A local developer is sharing his vision on a new kind of hotel, coming soon to the scenic city, he says he hopes to be able to tell "The Chattanooga Story."

Earlier this week city council members approved a re-zoning that would make way for a boutique hotel.  

The hotel would sit at the downtown entrance of the Walnut Street Bridge.  

Boutique hotels offer an intimate, authentic experience. Those with the project say from start to finish, it will be all things Chattanooga.

Mitch Patel, CEO, Vision Hospitality Inc, "Our goal is to choose a local contractor, we have a local architect, and then, of course, after opening, everything about this hotel is going to be local."

Vision Hospitality hopes to open the the 5-story, 90-room hotel  in 2016.


Chattanooga's Arts District will soon be home to a high-end boutique hotel the first of its kind in our city.

Council members approved the rezoning for the site that sits at the southern entrance of the Walnut Street Bridge. The hotel will feature 90 rooms with views of the river front. Organizers of the project promise the construction of the hotel will bring jobs, and once it's open there will be 50 full and part time jobs available.
