DESIGN HOTELS™ - THE DWELL.
When The Dwell’s owner, Seija Ojanpera, was young, her parents would often arrive home to discover that their house had been rearranged by their daughter, beds, wardrobes and art repositioned. This passion for interiors – she also used to collect hotel brochures while on family holidays – has now been fully realised in her first property, the 16-room boutique hotel The Dwell in central Chattanooga’s reinvigorated Innovation District. Set in an early 20th-century brick-and-limestone building that can look back on a long history as an inn, the property has been transformed with a touch of Old Hollywood glamour and vibrant retro-chic luxury. Each of the rooms, for example, comes with its own name, boldly colourful wallpaper and globally sourced vintage furniture. The sultry cocktail bar, Matilda Midnight boasts a menu of old classics and new creations and is the ideal place to unwind after a day exploring the nature of this city in the Appalachian Mountains – take tips from the concierge who is eager to ensure each guest has an enjoyable stay.
