This is such a beautiful and luxurious hotel. The lobby is gorgeous with lots of wood and brass. The bar and restaurant are also lovely. Our room was fantastic and the bathroom was huge - with separate tub and shower, two basins, and plenty of shelf space for our stuff. I also loved the old-fashioned (but immaculate) black and white... More

Thank you lindencraig for your review! Your kind words are much appreciated! Thank you for appreciating the hotel and its amenities. Sorry about the timeliness of the opening of the pool, for those hours are set by corporate. I can understand wanting to take a dip after a nice run on the ETSU campus. We hope you come up with...

I recently traveled to Johnson City, TN for a friend's wedding and had the pleasure of staying at the Carnegie Hotel. My friend had told me that Johnson City was a small, country town, but I will tell you - the Carnegie can rival any big city hotel. The hotel staff was extremely professional, friendly and helpful. The hotel is... More

This hotel is fantastic and has a great restaurant/bar attached. The rooms are XL! We were there for a wedding and had plenty of room for our large family. Easy parking and close to everything (restaurants, shopping and right across from ETSU. The only weird part of this hotel is that you have to take the elevator to the basement... More

This hotel has it all: including great historical character, quiet room, large bed, large bathroom, large sofa, large desk, free wifi, great restaurant, and a great bar. Even if you don't stay there, you should stop by for the restaurant and bar. As an example, it is the only hotel bar that I've found that has Pappy van Winkle bourbon.

The Carnegie Hotel is a delightful change from the "chain" hotels. While exploring Trip Advisor for hotels in the Johnson City area we ran across reviews of this hotel and were very surprised at the reasonable cost and decided to stay here. Absolutely the most comfortable (other than home) bed that I have slept on. Delightful bar and restaurant with... More

I looked for a hotel local to the Bristol Dragway that was reasonably priced. Wow, what a find. Old world styling with a helpful and friendly staff. The rooms are oversized for the money and have one of the most comfortable beds of any hotel in which I've stayed. The bar and restaurant are spectacular and, at least on a... More
