“Nestled away in one of Nashville’s up and coming towns, The Russell hotel has got everything it needs to fit right in with the bustle of boutiques and coffee shops just down the street. When modern and trendy meets historic and charming, you get a warm homey feeling with an slight edge of adventure. The Russell is a tech based hotel, meaning there is no front desk check in. Instead, after booking, they send you an email with a code to the front door lock. Also attached in the email is your room number and the code for your room door. I was blown away with how much I loved this set up. It made checking in super easy and fast! It also made the hotel feel more quaint and relaxing.
As far as amenities The Russell lacks nothing! The bright natural light coming in from the massive and beautiful stained glass windows really welcomes you to sit down in the large and colorful living area. Perfect for getting work done, relaxing with a good book or sipping a cup of coffee from their cute complimentary coffee and tea bar. Also if you are a podcaster this is the place to host a session! They have an amazing studio perfect for recording your next episode! And believe it or not, they also have a photo booth room! So grab your besties and strike a pose, you’ll have tears rolling down your face like I did from laughing at all the funny faces you make.
Another note is that there is no elevator on the property, but they do have a luggage lift that carry’s your bags up to the upper floors. Such a perfect and quirky little touch!
Now, when you find your way to your beautiful and creatively designed room, you will find snacks and water bottles, a steamer for making sure your outfit is looking 100, a sound machine next to your bed for the most peaceful nights sleep, soft and luxurious robes in the bathroom, as well as a top notch Dyson hair dryer! They definitely know how to make you feel like royalty.
With all this, I’m so glad I choose to stay at The Russell and will definitely be looking forward to staying here during my next visits to Nashville. Saving the best part for last, I wanted to tell you that the people that run The Russell do an amazing job at giving back to the community with their Rooms to Rooms program! A generous percentage of each nights stay is donated to local non-profits that help those experiencing homelessness in Nashville. The average weekend stay can provide 16 nights in a bed, 100 free showers, or 30 free meals! How amazing is that of a hotel to do!
So next time you are visiting Nashville not only do yourself a favor but the community and world a favor as well and stay at The Russell! Check them out at www.russellnashville.com and on Instagram @russellnashville
