A generally very pleasant stay. Well furnished, well maintained property with spacious rooms and a great bed. A certain air of stately, old world charm to the place. Only major drawback is that the adjoining doors between rooms must be paper thin. It seems you can hear even the slightest conversation in the adjoining room. We were awakened by the... More

The Carnegie is a phenomenal hotel to host meetings and have guests stay overnight. Recently my organization hosted an event at The Carnegie; the reviews from my guest were nothing short of EXCELLENT. I could not be more pleased with the friendliness of the staff. Since the meeting two family members came to town and I had to recommend this... More

Spent one night en route to Asheville. Attention to the smallest detail here! Room was large and comfy. Oversized separate tub was a real treat! There was also a shower and generous sized vanity in the oversized bath. The hotel itself is clean and all the brass polished! We had dinner in the lounge. Delicious! Employees are eager to attend...

It could have been a five-star (5*) place but for some details that made for some inconveniences. The staff was welcoming and helpful (we needed guest services three times and they were very responsive). The room was spacious with a nice couch and large bathroom with excellent shower as well as nice bathtub. The elevators were fast and prompt and... More

Stayed here with the hubby for a weekend trip to see a concert at ETSU. Great accommodations, friendly staff, and walking distance to the venue! Plenty of parking and only a short drive to great restaurants and breweries! Service at the bar was slow after our concert, but to no fault of the bartender. I just think whoever made the... More

I've been coming to this hotel for 3 years, while my son is at nearby summer camp. The rooms are nice, with cushy beds and great service. This year I did notice that the food at Wellingtons is not as good. But that gave me a reason to get out and try some new places in town. It's just that... More

I have stayed at this hotel multiple times over the last several years. The service is always top notch, rooms are immaculate and spacious, hotel has all the charm of an historic hotel, without the small rooms, and low ceilings. Beautifully decorated with lots of antiques, reminds me of an old businessman's club.
