Promising yet another year jam-packed full of once-in-a-lifetime collaborations, sizzling performances all across downtown and plenty of opportunity to see your favorite country tunesmiths, CMA Fest 2024 is going to be a must-see, week long extravaganza.
Taking place in the heart of Music City from June 6-9, returning attendees know that it's not the music that you can look forward to. With stages nestled in and around the famed Broadway, Nashville provides top-tier food, a long list of artist-centric bars and a slew of "transportainment" options, including the beloved Pedal Tavern.
With such a prime location serving as the hub of the week's events, there are several hotels and accommodation types that will allow festival goers a short walk or drive right into party central.
As we near the revered weeklong festival, we're getting you prepared for your trip to Nashville with Holler's guide of where to stay for CMA Fest 2024.
The Cambria Hotel Nashville, located in the heart of Downtown Nashville, is steeped in Music City's entertainment district.
A ten-minute-or-less walk to some of the city's hotspots, including Broadway, the Frist Art Museum, the famed Ryman Auditorium and Bridgestone Arena, the stadium hub for CMA Fest, Nissan Stadium, is only a brisk 20-minute walk over the Cumberland River.
An upscale hotel the Cambria provides a grocery and convenience store on-site, as well as an outdoor pool, terrace, gym, dry cleaning/laundry services and cooked-to-order breakfast in addition to its local cuisine restaurant, TRUE Music Room and Bar, which features light fare.
Across its 19 floors and 255 rooms, guests will enjoy premium bedding and air conditioning, as well as free WiFi and safes.
If you'd prefer to stay somewhere a little more homely and private within touching distance of the festival, perhaps this upscale guesthouse is the place for you.
Merely a couple of blocks away from the Country Music Hall of Fame, Music City Center and Broadway, and a stone's throw away from Nissan Stadium, these furnished rooms provide the perfect home away from home fit with sitting areas, kitchens, self-parking and private terraces.
If you're going for the more traditional hotel experience, you can't go wrong with the Hilton Garden Inn Nashville Downtown/Convention Center. Just off the Cumberland River, this 214-room Hilton lies just across the street from the revered Country Music Hall of Fame, and by extension, all of the magic found on Broadway.
With a rooftop terrace, dry cleaning/laundry services and more, you'll be able to catch a bite at one of the three on-site restaurants, featuring different types of local cuisine like the all-too-good Nashville Hot Chicken.
Elsewhere, guests can enjoy a 24-hour gym, outdoor pool and full breakfast before you head out to take in the CMA Festivities.
A little further out from the hustle and bustle of Downtown Nashville, the Home2 Suites is situated at the corner of Midtown and Nashville's historic Music Row.
With a complimentary breakfast and a quick drive to most of the CMA Fest touchpoints, Home2 Suites is a great option for those also interested in taking in some of the surrounding neighborhoods of Nashville, including the revered Vanderbilt University and the rowdy bar scene in midtown.
Need some recommendations for a quick drink (and probably some non-CMA sanctioned music)? Check out Winner's, Loser's, Red Door Saloon or Bobby's Idle Hour, all within walking distance.
For those not so enticed by the daytime CMA Fest programming, but who are quite keen to go to Nissan Stadium during the explosive nighttime performances, Waymore's Guest House and Casual Club might be just the place for you.
Located in the ever-popular and altogether charming East Nashville, this boutique hotel puts you right in the heart of the local Nashville fun and just a two minute drive away from the stadium.
Rejuvenated in 2022, Waymore's features a coffee shop, cafe and bar, as well as an outdoor entertainment area. Beyond the hotel, East Nashville will provide guests with a never ending list of fantastic food, hole in the wall bars, shops and thrift stores galore.
