GATLINBURG, TN - Leading interior design, branding, and procurement firm Interior Image Group (IIG) is proud to announce they will lead the design and procurement for the new Delta Hotels by Marriott Gatlinburg in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Located on a steep grade alongside the Cliff Branch River and overlooking Mt. Leconte, Delta Hotels Gatlinburg will offer stunning views of the Great Smoky Mountains as a year-round destination for guests. IIG’s interior design concept will pay homage to Gatlinburg’s beautiful scenery for the hotel’s lobby, public gathering areas, indoor and outdoor pools, F&B spaces, and the 293 guestrooms and 10 suites.

“The city of Gatlinburg is known as the gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains lying within one of the world’s most stunning landscapes. The design of Delta Hotels Gatlinburg celebrates local, natural charm as well as the transition through seasonal changes,” explained Leslie Schultz, Senior Vice President of Design at IIG. “To do so, we crafted thoughtful narratives for each destination throughout the property that express, in different ways, the beauty of the seasonal shifts through design. Gleaning inspiration from things like the Wildflower Pilgrimage in Spring and the Synchronous Firefly Festival in early Summer, or the scenic Smoky Mountains change colors from Fall to Winter. We incorporated a contrast of warm and cool tones and textures, intermixed with pops of exciting color and expansive views, making this a mountainous destination that guests can enjoy year-round.”

As natural storytellers, IIG drew inspiration from the surrounding environment, specifically the White Oak and its ever-changing beauty through the seasons. IIG incorporated the essence of Gatlinburg’s changing seasons, which will be subtly infused into each space through incorporating a natural color palette and greenery and into the space, leading guests from one area to the next. The picturesque landscape and local charm will influence specialty moments, reveal stories similar to that of the oak tree, and activate the hotel with a sense of warmth and welcome. The design thoughtfully places contemporary furnishings and a modern, architectural style with contrasting organic silhouettes and natural elements that allow the boundary between indoor and outdoor to fade into one. IIG’s design will invite guests to relax and recharge with a stunning view of Mount Le Conte and its surrounding nature.

Delta Hotel by Marriott Gatlinburg will break ground in late 2021 and is expected to be completed in Q2 of 2023.
