This hotel is the best in Johnson City hands down. Bad experiences at other hotels in town but from check in to exit they take great care of you. Unintrusive staff, great setting and mingle areas, with leather and manly feel of luxury and convenient location to downtown and a fantastic outdoor salt water pool and even with spa facilities...

We stayed for 5 days, and it was a wonderful experience. The room was oversized, comfortable, and clean. The beds were comfortable and the amenities were outstanding. Room service was prompt and above average. All at a very reasonable cost. The lobby and much of the hotel is appointed with vintage furnishings (even the elevators appear to be old), but... More

A very nice old style hotel with personable service. Our room was huge, with a oversized sleigh-style king bed. The bathroom alone was larger than our hotel room in NYC! Very well appointed and kept. We got much more than we paid for.

Thanks ingo46 for your review! Thank you for your kind comments about our hotel! I'm glad the room was to your satisfaction! NYC just doesn't have the room like we do in Johnson City, TN!

My husband and I travel to this area often to visit family. We always choose to stay at the Carnegie when rooms are available. The hotel is very clean, beautiful decor, has a friendly and well trained staff, and comfortable amenities. At this visit, I had a discrepancy with our bill. I was charged an amount that differed from my... More

What a oasis in the mountains, the people are friendly and the rooms feel like you have stepped back in time. Very elegant and roomy, sleigh king beds and a nice BIG bathroom. If you are a business traveler stay away from the chains and step into luxury, AHHHH!

Was completely surprised with our stay at the Carnegie! Thinking it was an older hotel, we found out it was built in 2000 and made to look like one of the old grand hotels (which it accomplished with great service and decor). Staff is friendly and courteous. Room was spotless and comfortable. Restaurant was excellent. Bartender Adam was amazing. Helped... More

Classic, luxurious look & feel to this hotel !! Right at edge of ETSU campus. Great banquet facilities with good food. Parking garage for big functions. Spa & restaurant on site. It's definitely the nicest hotel in Johnson City & maybe the whole Tri-Cities !!

Class in every way. Impressed from the moment we entered the lobby. The room was spacious, very comfortable, and the price very reasonable. Plan to stay there again on our next visit to Johnson City. We did not eat at the restaurant, but the menu was inviting and we'll probably do so next time. The bar is quiet and a... More

I recently attended a conference at ETSU and stayed at the Carnegie Hotel. The hotel is located directly across the road from the university, with an overhead walkway to the campus. No driving needed. The rooms were outstanding! The bathroom was fit for a queen. Room service was delicious! Nice refreshing pool! The hotel reminds me of "Downton Abbey". Only... More
