Best of the Fest

Most Economical CMA Fest Package: Hampton Inn Vanderbilt

What we like about these packages:
You get a lot for your money with the Hampton Vanderbilt packages. Five nights hotel (June 9-12, 2022), breakfast, complimentary hotel parking (for BlueShoe clients only), along with your Premium Lower Level 4-Day CMA Music Festival passes. Prices begin at $959 USD per person, based on four people in the room. 1, 2, & 3 person packages are also available. The Hampton Vanderbilt is a lovely hotel in a great part of town (you're in midtown only about 1.25 miles from downtown where the Festival venues are) and it features an outdoor pool. Their staff gets consistently high evaluation marks from our BlueShoe clients for their service and courtesy.


In midtown where the Hampton is situated, there are many types of restaurants (from fast food to high end) that you can walk to easily. And remember breakfast is complimentary at the Hampton. The hotel offers a shuttle to downtown and back, but it stops running around 10 p.m. so you won't be able to use it to return from the nightly concerts at Nissan Stadium (those go on to midnight or later); however, there are plenty of other transportation choices including taxis, Uber & Lyft, the Metro bus line, or, if you prefer to drive yourself, you can purchase a 4-day parking pass for Nissan Stadium from BlueShoe.

Best Seats for the CMA Music Fest: 5-Star Hermitage Hotel

What we like about these packages:
We always match our best tickets with the best hotel and that is the 5-Star, 5-Diamond Hermitage Hotel in downtown Nashville. No other hotel in Nashville can boast of such a distinction. You can choose between Gold Circle seats on the floor or our best Premium Lower Level and Premium Club Level seats..


This is a favorite for those celebrating special life events—anniversaries, graduations, birthdays—and if you like, we can create and customize a special gift certificate for you featuring all the details of the hotel/ticket packages (including the location of your wonderful seats).


The rooms at The Hermitage Hotel are incredibly spacious (nearly 500 square feet) and the quality of the furnishings are unparalleled—as is the quality of the service you'll experience during your 5-night stay.


Dining at the Capitol Grille in The Hermitage is so well-regarded, many Nashvillians consider it a destination site (even if they're not staying there). Located downtown on the corner of Sixth and Union, The Hermitage is within walking distance of the music venues.

Most Economical Downtown Package: Courtyard Marriott

What we like about these packages:
For those who can't devote five days and five nights to coming to Nashville, the downtown Courtyard Marriott is a wonderful choice because in addition to our standard five-night package, an option is offered at the Courtyard for a four-night stay. You arrive on the first day of the Festival (Thursday, June 9, 2022) and depart on Monday, June 13, 2022). The Courtyard is located on the corner of Church and Fourth Avenue N—just a block from the Ryman Auditorium and two blocks from Lower Broadway. The Courtyard's location puts you right smack in the middle of the action—within walking distance of the various Festival venues. If you would like to experience the CMA Music Festival in the most immediate and exhilarating way, the Courtyard Marriott Downtown is a superb choice.

Easiest Walking Distance to CMA Venues: Hampton Inn & Suites Downtown

What we like about these packages:
With the Hampton Inn downtown Nashville you'll enjoy the easiest walking distance to the music venues of any of our hotels. Located on 4th Ave South just a block from the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Music City Center (site of the Fan Fair Exhibition Hall and the photo/autograph sessions), you'll also be within a short distance to the music venues of the Festival— Riverfront Stage, Ascend Amphitheatre, and Nissan Stadium. Complimentary breakfast each morning is included in your package. The staff at the Hampton Inn downtown go out of their way to welcome Festival guests with all sorts of surprise amenities: in the past they've had housekeeping deliver special gifts to the rooms, they've hired bands to perform live music in the lobby during breakfast, and they've put out hot snacks in the afternoon. We've had BlueShoe clients booking at the Hampton for repeat visits because they love it so much.
