What You Need to Know

The Look of The Joseph, a Luxury Collection Hotel

It's All in the Details

The glimmering 21-story hotel boasts a striking facade complete with geometric accents, making it a Music City stand-out. Upon pulling up to the porte cochere, you’ll notice a lush green wall and an LED art installation that sets the scene for all the fun — and chic, design-forward accents — to follow. The refined, grey-hued lobby is equally stunning with hand-cut Italian marble flooring, a bespoke reception desk with a hand-tooled leather panel, plush communal seating, and an abundance of contemporary artwork. Speaking of art, you’ll find over 1,100 specially curated works throughout the property: World-renowned art collectors Ron and Ann Pizzuti have shared some of their collection.

A few steps from the striking fireplace in the lobby is The Bar at The Joseph, which features a stunning coppertop bar and an eye-catching chandelier by artist Misha Kahn. On-site, you’ll also find a coffee and pastry bar (helmed by a James Beard Award Semifinalist) and Italian restaurant Yolan. The 21st-floor rooftop bar, just steps from the inviting swimming pool, is done in gorgeous shades of blue and boasts panoramic city views. New to the scene is the intimate Four Walls cocktail bar, which opened in July 2023. The dark, dimly lit space is centered around a deep red marble bar and serves signature cocktails and elevated snacks inspired by the hotel’s Italian roots and Music City’s cowboy culture. The on-site Rose spa and salon has an opposite aesthetic with breezy interiors and plenty of natural light. 

Accommodations-wise, all 297 rooms and suites exude elegance thanks to minimalist design elements and lots of copper, oak, marble, and brown leather accents. You can also expect plush linens, more curated artwork, and pops of blue in the form of throw blankets. Suites offer separate living rooms and bonus features like deep soaking tubs.
