Our friends recommended that we spend our long weekend at the Hotel Bethlehem. We had never been to this city in Pennsylvania, but they highly recommended the city and the hotel. So, we made reservations and were NOT disappointed!! We stayed there from April 12-14, 2014, and had a wonderful experience! The hotel is in beautiful shape (got a little... More

My husband an I usually stay at the Sands Hotel when visiting the area. This time we decided to try the Hotel Bethlehem. We will probably will never go back to the Sands. The Hotel Bethlehem is a step back in time. From the greeting at the parking lot to the excellent front desk, we were made to feel at... More

Our third time staying and once again not a disappointment. We are here for 3 nights while doing business . We find the location and walking distance to many Restaurants very convenient . For us it is perfect. Because it is a restored 1922 hotel the rooms and bathrooms are on the small side so if you are a large... More

We were at the hotel on March 22, 2014 for a wedding. Although the entire stay was perfect - one person in particular stood out. Her name is Rowena and she had to be one of the nicest, happiest persons I have ever encountered. She was very interesting to watch - everyone got a big, bright, confident smile. She obviously...

I stay here frequently for business - it is a lovely hotel. I love the location and it's great for early morning runs through the historic part of the city. The only thing that doesn't make me rate it 5 stars is the slow elevator LOL. I have stayed on every floor, in every room type. My last stay, a... More

My daughter had her wedding ceremony and a sit down dinner at Historic Hotel Bethlehem. Every aspect of the experience was wonderful. From the initial planning, Terry provided us with great ideas and quick responses to my questions, and was there on the big day to ensure all went smoothly. The rooms we used were very beautiful and provided a... More

Spent the weekend (Fri 3/14 to Sun 3/16) for a spirited event. It was awesome as usual. The staff was attentive and indulgent (as part for the event we were given permission to access public areas after hours). And when we finally went to sleep the beds were spectacular. We had the bonus of it being ST Pat's weekend. There... More

My boyfriend and I "flew away" for a three-night romantic getaway and knowing nothing about the area, had looked online at various accomodations. How lucky were we to have selected Hotel Bethlehem - it was amazing! The location is perfect with so many historical sights, shops, and restaurants within walking distance. The hotel has the feel of a luxurious boutique... More

This is a beautiful hotel. It makes me feel like I am one of the rich and famous every time I step foot through the door. I feel like I step back in time and should be wearing a magnificent gown from the 1800's.
