Visiting in Johnson City and my brother recommended this hotel. What a pleasant surprise! Well appointed spacious clean rooms. Great restaurant for breakfast - although the servings were rather small for the price. Friendly staff and great location near ETSU as well as the hospital. We will stay there again when we return to JC.

We got a last minute room at this hotel when we were traveling to attend a track meet help at ETSU. The hotel is attached to the sports arena with a covered walkway. We had never been to Johnson City, and didn't realize the hotel was adjacent to the facility! If you are traveling for an event at the school... More

This hotel feels historic (the original one built in 1890 burned down, but this one feels like the original) and elegant. The bar downstairs has over 200 types of whiskey and you'll want to plan some time to just sit in the huge leather chairs and visit the library. The wine cellar is beautiful, and a night's stay is actually... More

Historic luxury hotel in Johnson City. The beds are great; the furniture is big and dark and cozy. Only drawback was the shower seemed understated for the rest of the hotel. On site restaurant, Wellingtons, was perfect on a snowy night.

Let me first start with the beds. The mattress at the Carnegie is THE most comfortable I have ever slept in. Period. I usually do not sleep well in hotels even the fine best in upscale Marriotts and Westins. When I asked the desk staff about their beds and they said they were made especially for them and that the... More

What a pleasant surprise! This hotel is proof that you don't have to spend an arm and a leg to stay in a luxurious, elegant hotel with excellent, friendly service! I wish the Carnegie Hotel was closer to home. It's a true gem! I would definitely consider a detour just to stay here again.

We stayed for two nights while visiting Johnson City. Great hotel and not much more expensive than the others. We stayed at four hotels during this trip and this one was by far the best. The breakfast was excellent also. We did not eat in the dining room for diner, but the dining room and lounge areas were very nicely... More

This is the only hotel in the area that is actually nice. There are clean mid-range hotels like Holiday Inn, but if you want luxury Carnegie is literally the only choice. It is super cheap for what it is, too.
