Best place ever to party and sleep. We even ordered one of the beds for our home. The restaurant is great as well as the catering. We also enjoyed the spa while we were there. It is definitely the best place to plan any type of family or business gatherings.

Beautiful Hotel with a wonderful staff. The accommodations are excellent with high quality sheets, towels, etc. On-site restaurant is great as well. Staff was very quick to meet my needs and answer any questions that my wife or I had.

This is a really really nice hotel. Beautiful lobby and guest areas. Although fairly new, it is well done with beautiful antiques and artwork. Guest rooms were nicely decorated with comfortable bed and large bath. Would highly recommend. Worth the upgrade from a chain hotel.

Whenever I travel to the Johnson City TN area I stay at the Carnegie Hotel. The hotel is beautiful, clean, spacious and close to several attractions, restaurants, and directly across the street from ETSU. On my most recent visit the pool was closed for the season (mid-October) but the furniture was still surrounding the pool if I had more time... More

If you have never had an opportunity to experience an expensive hotel in a big city stay here for a modest price and you will have had the experience without the sticker shock.

The Carnegie Hotel and Spa was an amazing place to stay. The room was huge and the decor was amazing. Instead of the normal "hotel bed", the beds here were beautiful, wood sleigh beds (comfortable too). Room service was quick and delicious as well. Highly recommend this hotel!!

The Carnegie Hotel offered everything we wanted. The room was spacious, quiet and clean. The members of the staff were helpful and professional. It was obvious that they enjoyed working there. The location was very convenient for us during our attendance at the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough.

We checked in and were given a room on the top floor with a beautiful view of the ETSU campus. The king sized room and bathroom were impressively spacious. The bathroom with both tub and walk-in shower were both so clean that one would think the fixtures had just been installed. Really appreciated the double sinks and vanity combination which... More
