This hotel is a great throwback to earlier periods with some elegant decor and oversized rooms. We really enjoyed the excellent service from the staff and the welcoming feel of the place in general. The only reason it is 4 stars is the restaurant felt slightly out of place with the rest of the hotel.....not quite as fancy as other... More

Staff is incredibly nice here. I am staying for three nights and when checking, she noticed this immediately and put me in a end room where there is no traffic from the elevator. I would highly recommend.. the Carnegie Hotel. Pool area is nice and the spa is quiet and i enjoyed a great massage.

Stayed in a presidential suite. Large suite but odd use of space. Huge master bathroom but felt so cold and almost hospital like unlike a spa feeling (very clean). Bath mats would help. Not great for kids with little to do. View was of the parking lot and school across the street. Overall, I definitely think this hotel suits a... More

Thank you for your review of your recent stay, sealovingmomof3. I am very sorry that we did not deliver the quality experience you have come to expect from our Presidential Suite. I agree, the Presidential would not quite suit children, as the room only has one bed. We hope you allow us the opportunity to serve you in the future... More

Beautiful hotel. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The staff was helpful and friendly. The heated salt water pool was definitely a plus. Great location. Doubt you could beat it in the Tri-cities.

Very elegant hotel and nice furnishings. Even though it was built only 20 years ago, it looks like it was constructed in the 20's or 30's. I really love the architecture of it; both inside and out. On each floor there is suite named after a past President. I would recommend springing for one of these. Each has a dining... More

Spacious room. We stayed at the front side, facing a busy road, but I never heard any noise that bothered me. Nice to have an outside pool, even though it was very hot in August. It even had a lift, so if you have a disability, you can also use this pool. There was one thing I missed and that... More

My wife and I just stayed 4 days / nights at the Carnegie Hotel in Johnson City, Tennessee and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The Hotel itself is remarkable. We enjoyed sitting in the many antique chairs and sofas throughout the Hotel. I especially liked the Roosevelt Library. The Cherry wood furniture was amazing. The room and bed were... More

The Carnegie is one of the nicest full-service hotels you will find anywhere. The hotel isn't really historic, but it looks and feels like it. It is actually a replica of a fine old hotel that was located in downtown Johnson City. I stayed in the presidential suite (room 616) and it was absolutely beautiful. The restaurant and the bar...
