Beautiful town with a quaint hotel facade. Truly unfortunate the hotel doesn't live up to it's promise and potential. From poor food service to smoked filled hallways to rooms allowed to party until 4:00 am with staff unprepared to deal with the issues. Truly a shame...

We''ve stayed here many times and love the place. However, this time we ate breakfast in the Tap Room and the service was very slow, even though the place was about 1/3 full. We sat for so long with no service that the hostess noticed and came over to the table. When we did get service, the server was good... More

This is such a short drive from NYC and has everything you could want. The atmosphere is relaxing, the staff is so gracious and helpful, the Tap Room has great cocktails and food. To have 24 hour room service is a pleasure. We shopped downtown, ran over to the Sands Casino for a couple of hours, then had room service... More

I stayed at Hotel Bethlehem for business last month; usually I roost at the newer, chain hotel in town (not mentioning any names here!). I've traveled to Bethlehem for business for years on a quarterly basis, and have always driven by Hotel Bethlehem thinking I needed to give it a try. Last month I did, and I'm completely sold. The...

The staff and accommodations at the Historic Hotel Bethlehem helped make our 4 day weekend a super great time! We were blessed to be a part of Harvest Fest, Oktoberfest and all the other events going on in beautiful Bethlehem this past weekend! This Hotel puts you in the middle of everything! There is certainly no other place to stay... More

I couldn't have asked for a better experience at a hotel. The historic building is beautiful and the pillows were to die for comfy on my bed. They use Bath & Body Works products and who doesn't love that? Most importantly their service was beyond expectation. Every single person was friendly. People remembered my name throughout the week, and knew... More

If thirty five dollars is not out of your price range for an excellent brunch the food is spectacular. It is pricey for the area but I would go back. Unlimited breakfast and lunch choices with omelette and prime rib station. No complaints

I traveled to Bethlehem for business, and at the last minute, was able to switch from an ordinary chain hotel to the lovely and unique Hotel Bethlehem. I couldn't have been more pleased with my choice to stay here. The setting is absolutely idyllic, and the hotel itself is full of character. The decor is very traditional, which is appropriate...

Hi MomWisconsin, Thank you for choosing to stay with us! We are pleased to hear that you made the switch at the last minute and you enjoyed your stay. The Moravian Bookshop is one of a kind.

On September 13, 2014, my new bride and I were married at St. Anne's Catholic Church and after an exciting horse and carriage ride from the church with our youngest grandchildren, we experienced a wonderfully prepared reception at Hotel Bethlehem. The entire staff was most professional and worked diligently to make our day very special. The soft background music of... More

I recently had my wedding reception in the Grand Ballroom at Hotel Bethlehem, and I could not have imagined a more perfect place to celebrate with my family and friends. The service was exceptional from the early planning stages all the way through the brunch we held the next morning. I must give a big thank you to Kathy for... More
