Have been staying at the Carnegie for years during my travels through Johnson City. The hotel is immaculately kept with large, clean rooms, friendly staff and a great bourbon/scotch selection at the restaurant bar, not to mention good food. The Austin Springs spa located in the basement also provides a great way to relax. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Johnson... More

The Carnegie Hotel in Johnson City, TN, is a hidden gem. Walking into the Carnegie is like going back in time. You are greeted by professional, friendly staff and soon find yourself in a beautiful and large guest room furnished with beautiful but functional antiques. After settling into your room, venture downstairs to the spacious lobby and the library/lounge from... More

This hotel could be your destination. We loved the decor throughout...from lobby, to hallways, to the rooms--every detail was beautiful. Very comfortable beds. The room was spacious & had everything we needed. Once you figure out all the one way streets & confusion of traffic, Johnson City is a great place to visit!!

2nd time I've stayed here. Neat old hotel, well kept, updated and maintained. Nice amenities but I didn't use any. Great staff. Bar staff was excellent. Restaurant food was ok. Expect to pay a little more but worth it.
