Stayed here because it is directly across from ETSU and my son was doing his "defense" for his PhD(shameless bragging). We got a good rate of $109 per night and though you can lodge much cheaper in Johnson City, we were very pleased with our experience. This is a good example of what a luxury hotel looked like in the early 1900's. The array of antiques is really interesting. The "wall unit" for lack of a better description, behind the check in counter is carved from one solid piece of wood and took 6 men to put in there. They then built the check in counter in front of it. Lots of wood all over with mahogany and oak dominating. Our room was large and comfortable with an unexpectedly large bathroom with double sinks. The restaurant/bar area was equally appointed with wood and gave you the feeling of where the early movers and shakers of this area ate and drank and smoked cigars as they plotted and schemed their next adventure. The food was nothing extravagant but we enjoyed it just the same.The bar is a whiskey bar with over 50 choices of whiskey. Only one Irish whiskey choice was a bit disappointing but I was not in Ireland, I was in Johnson City. There was a lounge area adjacent to the bar that had more antiques and my favorite was an , I think ,Alligator
upholstered sofa. Johnson City is also famous for being a hangout for Al Capone. So if you want to have a sip of whiskey or two on an Alligator sofa that Al may have plotted on, I believe you will enjoy your stay.
