Property's Favourite Review
Wow! This hotel exceeded our expectations. We only stayed one night but I wish we could've stayed longer. Great location, walking distance to lots of great restaurants and there is a playground nearby. The rooms and lobby were so fun and clean. We stayed in the bell tower suite and loved the space and the fact that we woke up looking at the beautiful stained glass! It was also a fun surprise to find that they have stain blow dryers, I was super excited about this. The hotel took extra procedures to make us feel safe due to covid. Masks on in the lobby, sanitizer stations throughout and overall cleanliness. We will definitely be back!

I would recommend for any visitor to Nashville. Beautiful building and neighbourhood! Much more affordable than most of the down town options and very luxurious. I would happily have stayed there for a few more days.

This is our third time staying at the Russell and it was perfect! It was walking distance to the venue we were going to that evening and to so many places to eat. They were very accommodating when I initially booked the wrong day for our trip an worked with me to correct it. ☺️ Honestly this the first place I always think to stay when visit Nashville. I highly recommend the Russell!!

Maureen A wrote a review Sep 2022
We loved The Russell! Just a few suggestions. The keypad to get into the building is wearing out where you put in the code.. You can tell that the code is not changed. That could be a security problem. Maybe a new code should be set each day. Also, we loved how dark our room was, however, the edges of the platform bed stuck out and my husband kept hitting his shin on the corner. Maybe a padding on the corners would be helpful. One last thing, I am very allergic to mold and the shower had black mold beginning to form. Other than those things, our stay was peaceful and the hotel was beautiful. It was a perfect place to stay if you have family living in East Nashville.

comfortable beds, great water pressure, clean and very well decorated. no staff other than housekeeping but that didn’t bother us at all. the keypad was an interesting way to get in but we felt very safe. some noise heard from rooms above us (we were on 1st floor) but it didn’t stop us from sleeping and there were earplugs provided. Loved the snacks and waters and koozies provided as well! the travel guest book was also very helpful.

I think this is the 3rd time we have stayed at The Russell. The building is beautiful and the rooms are comfortable. The decor is fun. We like the neighborhood for walking. It’s great that you can walk to great restaurants. We love the mission of the hotel and are glad to contribute in a small way to the community.

Really want to give 5 stars… I do love the style and mission of the hotel, but they have the worst pillows I have ever slept on. Overstuffed with chunks of foam. *Also the 10:30 checkout time is not so great for West Coast travelers. But that said, I would consider staying here again.

Located in a very quiet neighborhood. The rooms were comfortable and very clean. The shower was amazing. Overall the hotel was perfect and we would definitely stay there again. Loved the touch of the complimentary snacks and goodies. Their communication was great. If I had a question, they were right on it. The building with stain glass windows was so pretty. I definitely recommend staying here.

Our stay at The Russell was phenomenal - we were just sad we only had one night there! There were a lot of thoughtful details in the room, including a white noise machine, USB outlets, and dimmable lights by the beds. The beds were super comfy, and the bathroom was really nice as well. The hotel was gorgeously decorated and within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone, and hope we get to stay here again! They also donate a portion of their proceeds to homeless ministries in Nashville, which I thought was really cool.
