Why Bud Carman chose Nashville

The Location is ideal for our business purposes. We expect all who visit with us will depart feeling there could be no better place to stay during their visit to Nashville.

What makes this condo unique

Class. When I first entered the lobby from Church Street, my first word was 'this is a class act'. The property has 24 hour concierge service and you can tell there is pride of ownership. Staying overnight in Nashville is a special experience and The Cumberland makes the stay even more delightful. Amenities are both practical and convenient. I especially like the fitness center but from a business perspective you cannot beat the business center and conference center. I especially enjoyed reading my newspaper early and how nice it was to have hot coffee waiting. the 'mancave with large screen tv impressed me as perfect for watching my favorite team.

Best place to stay in Nashville!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were so accommodating! We had fresh baked cookies when we got there and the house was immaculant! They went over and above accommodating some of my special requests. The building is very secure and the staff was friendly. We really felt at home and didn't want to leave. It is close to everything on Broadway, we were able to walk most places. Walked to the farmer's market, up and down Broadway, to the minor league stadium....

Owner's Response: We are so fortunate to have this property so well located and it is always nice to hear how well the location and amenities worked for guests. Often, after arrival, cars stay parked as there are great dining and entertainment opportunities within a short walk, as well as the State Capital, the library, The Cumberland River and State Museum. We are so glad you came. Lolly & Pop, as our granddaughter calls us, hope you will come again, often, and if you let us know you are a return guest, we will bake an extra cookie.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for providing us the perfect place to stay while we were in town for the Raiders vs. Titans game! The condo was everything we hoped it would be. Comfortable. Roomy. Well stocked. And, within walking distance of the stadium and the sites we wanted to see. The beds were very comfortable which is always important to us. We appreciated the coffee and condiments. And the cookies were yummy! My only suggestion is that a full-length mirror was no where to be found. That said, we would definitely stay here again. Having Pucketts, Printers Alley and Tootsies within walking distance came in very handy. Thank you, Bud!

Magnificent place and location

The location is just wonderful. It's just a couple block from Ryman Auditorium, the Country Music Hall of Fame, Broadway live music, and lots of restaurants. The condo is nicely decorated, clean and comfortable.

Beautiful condo, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay in one of Bud Carmen's condos at the Cumberland. It's a beautiful property, well-stocked with all the necessities, roomy and comfortable (for 5 ladies with lots of "stuff"), tastefully decorated, and perfectly located within a short walking distance to many good restaurants and all the best entertainment on Broadway. I highly recommend this property to anyone considering a visit to Nashville!
