Backstage Pass: Model Victoria Henley lounges at the Gallatin along ‘music row’


Nestled comfortably outside all the hustle and bustle of Nashville’s boisterous and infamous “music row,” The Gallatin Hotel is an eclectic, Art Deco, stunningly curated hotel with a heart of gold that shines just as brightly as the technicolor decor you’ll enjoy throughout the expanses of the hotel.

Originally home to the Eastside Church of Christ, the Gallatin Hotel pays the homage to the altruistic legacy of the aforementioned church by paying it forward in serving the lesser fortunate members of the Nashville community. Guests of the Gallatin can rest easy at night knowing that their stay is not only going to provide them with beautiful memories that will last a lifetime but they’re also supporting a variety of noble causes.

To date, The Gallatin Hotel has provided over 100,000 warm meals, beds and showers to individuals affected by homelessness in the Nashville community.

One of the myriad of ways in which The Gallatin is wildly unique and completely unlike the rest is that the hotel offers contactless check in, as patrons are provided with unique door codes upon making their reservations, affording patrons the opportunity to come and go as they please at their own leisure.

The aesthetic of The Gallatin is outrageously upbeat and on trend, and the lobby affords guests the opportunity to indulge in many Instagram worthy photo ops, including neon colored “hand chairs,” an assortment of brightly colored signs boasting cheerful affirmations, and a photo booth, where you can pose and preen in your very own “photo session” at a kiosk which will send a free, customized, social media worthy photo to your cell phone or email address.

A 24-hour coffee and tea station is available to guests in the lobby area, complete with all standard condiments (including fresh honey), and an entertainment center, complete with comfortable seating, coffee table books and a television are also available for guests’ convenience.

Several porches and relaxation grottos are available for patrons’ enjoyment, and the strikingly designed and luxuriously comfortable rooms ensure that you will be ready to take on your action-packed Nashville schedule well-rested and refreshed.

Our room, which was festively decorated with pop art style decorum (including a Dolly Parton wall hanging, Art Deco furnishings and a sleek interior design, features ample space, a flat screen, high definition television, a spacious bathroom with luxury, complimentary bath products, and locally made, nutritious and delicious snacks and sweet treats, including a chocolate peanut butter cup and a decadent chocolate energy bar.

A convenient , easy-to-use, luggage lift is available on the bottom floor for guests of the Gallatin, and numerous rooms are available to suit each individual patron’s unique needs.
