You will make memories here!
Absolutely amazing stay! We loved it here and already told a few friends about it! Great ambiance and the guest friendly perks they offer really made our stay one of a kind! From complimentary gift baskets, comfy robes, to carbonated water on tap, this place was cool! They also have a really exciting program that helps the homeless in the area the more they succeed, so much more than you would expect from a family-run, converted hotel, but it’s well worth the visit! The surrounding area was great and walkable as well!

Great stay!
We only stayed 1 night on our way to Florida. Hotel was absolutely beautiful. They have really thought of everything with this hotel. My kids really enjoyed the photo booth they have setup as well as the books throughout the lobby. The hotel is location about 15min drive from broadway. The rooms were nice and quiet even though we came during the CMA fest. Will definitely come back next time in Nash!

8/10 Very good

Unique property!
Nice overnight stay on our way home. Unique and very pretty building! We had a glitch with a double booking (a couple moved from our booked room to another room). They forgot their clothes in the dresser, which resulted in a 6:30 wake up to retrieve their clothes. Otherwise, all was good.

Beautiful & Inspiring
I plan to stay here again! Loved the lobby, it’s clean, bright and inspiring. The colors and energy are even better than the photos. Take note the interior rooms don’t have windows, but other than that it was absolute perfection. Highly recommend!!!

Fabulous find in Nashville!
I absolutely LOVE The Russell! I knew the stay would be unique in an old church, but everything was wonderful! The interior design, the beautiful stained glass, the spacious room, contactless service, and a wonderful coffee bar. The response through text was immediate on every inquiry I made. We told every one we met including our Uber drivers that this was now a hotel! What a great stay!

Great hotel
We loved this hotel. We stayed in 3.1 which was one of the slightly cheaper rooms and it was quite small, but we knew that booking it and it was fine for us. The hotel is beautiful, in a converted church with amazing decoration and furniture. I was a little worried about there being no desk as we wanted to drop out bags off early, but they had individual lockers where you could choose your own code. Genius and they should have them everywhere! Had a couple of questions during the stay and the team responded immediately to calls/e-mails and were very helpful. The room was also lovely and decorated really well, plus nice extras like snacks and great shampoo etc! Great shower/bathroom and even a Dyson hairdryer! Check-in was fine with the codes provided for the door. Would definitely stay here again if in Nashville. Only issue (which isn't the hotel's fault) is that it is far away from the centre. We knew this when booking but saw it was an hour's walk and thought we could do that there and get an Uber back. However, it is quite sketchy walking that way and we didn't feel safe so ended up getting Ubers, and they were always surging so we're about $20 each way. That aside, the nearby area was great and loads of good restaurants etc. in East Nashville.

Beautiful and quiet.
Incredible hotel, beautiful building. They were so obliging and the customer service was unmatched, even though they were off site. Easy, free parking also, which is a huge place. Will definitely stay again if I’m back to Nashville.

The most beautiful hotel in Nashville
The Russell really is the most beautiful hotel in Nashville. It’s a converted church in a quiet, well-located East Nashville neighbourhood. The rooms are large, the decor is gorgeous and the small details are so special. I was a bit anxious with check in, but once inside the beautiful space I was at ease. I’ll be recommending The Russell to everyone I know, and I really hope to come back one day myself! The only *negative* part of my stay was the noisy, drunk guests coming back at 2:45 am. The hotel has a “Quiet Time” after 10 pm which these guests clearly didn’t care for. It was a short-lived annoyance, but had it gone on longer I would have called the staff. So, if you’re a party animal, this is not the hotel for you.

Highly recommend!
We loved The Russell. The property is beautiful, amenities are great, and location is quaint and not far from downtown or even the titans stadium (walking distance). The neighborhood is perfect. If we were ever to move to Nashville that’s the neighborhood we’d look at. I loved that they have soda water on tap and an water and ice machine on each floor. If you have a car they do have parking available across the street which is convenient. Obviously, their charity to homeless ministries in Nashville is a huge plus and so I’m glad to help contribute. The only thing that needs work are the pillows. They were lumpy and too fat. That being said, the bed was comfortable and I never did ask for new pillows. All this being said, we will definitely stay here again.
