The Advenire, a Marriott Autograph Collection hotel, is set to open Feb. 12 in downtown St. George, Utah. 

The boutique property -- within easy driving distance of outdoor adventures at Zion National Park, Snow Canyon and Sand Hollow State Park --brings the mountain aesthetic inside with the lobby's focal point, the Rammed Earth Wall, made from soil and sediment of St. George and Greater Zion. The guest rooms' oversized windows look out to Southern Utah's Red Rock Mountains, and the interiors feature local art, craftsman furniture and tapestries resembling handmade rugs used by early settlers. 

The Advenire's signature restaurant, Wood.Ash.Rye, led by executive chef Shon Foster and chef Jason Neeley (both of whom worked at the award-winning Sego in Kanab, Utah), will serve hearty fare influenced by St. George's history and early settlers. Wood.Ash.Rye's bar will feature cocktails made with local ingredients and Utah-made spirits.

Small groups have plenty of space to gather in, such as the private dining room, which seats 30 and is equipped with a 55-in. LED smart television mirror; an outdoor patio for up to 25 people; and a rooftop terrace that holds 110 and offers views toward Snow Canyon State Park, historic St. George, Red Cliffs Conservation Area and the Colorado Plateau. Wood.Ash.Rye also is available for buyouts for receptions of up to 120 people or dinner for 60.
