The Hermitage Hotel has a unique and interesting history that intersects with every aspect of Nashville's history, culture, and enterprise.
The Hermitage Hotel supports and has a deep relationship with The Land Trust for Tennessee. This relationship began in 2008 when a program was created in which guests may donate $3.00 for every night they stay in the hotel. These donations now total over $500,000.00 and have preserved over 5,000 acres of land in Tennessee.
The Hermitage Hotel and Capitol Grille also support the Southern Foodways Alliance in their vital role of preserving Southern Cuisine by recording the oral heritage that is passed through generations. Documentary films created by the Southern Foodways Alliance may be viewed in each of our guestrooms.
Since 2006, the Capitol Grille has supported Share Our Strength by hosting the Tasteful Pursuit dinner each year. Share Our Strength is an organization whose mission is to end childhood hunger in America.
