Vision Hospitality Group broke ground on its second Kinley hotel Jan. 6. Joining the company’s Humanist lifestyle portfolio, the 64-room Kinley Chattanooga (Tenn.) Southside is slated to open in 2021.

The hotel will feature a coffee bar and sell arts and crafts from local artisans. It will be situated in Chattanooga’s centrally located Southside district within walking distance of shops, restaurants and the Songbirds Guitar Museum.

Vision Hospitality Group’s first Kinley property is scheduled to debut in downtown Cincinnati in early 2020. When both hotels open, they will become part of Marriott International’s Tribute Portfolio.
