Hotel Bethlehem's decor and staff made our January 2015 wedding special and unique. The governors suite was spacious and a classy room to get ready in. The rooms were so comfortable and clean. It truly is a treasure and we are so happy we chose this hotel as our wedding venue. The attention to detail by Terry and all staff... More

This historic hotel is great. Centrally located on the edge of historic Bethlehem and a quick hop across the river to Southside Bethlehem. This hotel is extremely clean, enchanting architecture, the staff are more then helpful, and the bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable about trying new drinks. We used the hotel free shuttle to get across the river to the... More

I have loved this hotel from the first time I stepped foot in it (which I did because I loved the outside and location)! I love it so much that my husband and I had our wedding here in November 2014. That experience was even more amazing than I ever could have thought! The hotel staff was so helpful and... More

This hotel was beautifully decorated, clean, and the staff couldn't have been more courteous and helpful. We had a wonderful stay and will go back! The food in either of the restaurants was excellent. And, the bartenders were knowledgeable and friendly.

Elegant hotel right in town. Beautiful architecture inside & out. Gorgeous ballrooms. Concierge was very helpful, front desk had lovely people. Included transport from the airport which was fantastic. Great lounge & bar area, delicious meals. Room was very clean, well kept especially for an old hotel. Had a great view of the town & church. Loved the Moravian bookstore... More

Attended a wedding here over the holiday season. The hotel is absolutely beautifully decorated for the season. The staff could not have been friendlier. Some caution: there in no valet parking. Only 2 levels of the parking garage are covered. We arrived in an ice storm wearing formal clothing for the wedding to find we had to self-park on the... More

Walking into the Hotel Bethlehem on Christmas Eve, I looked to my left, then my right, expecting Bing Crosby to be coming off the elevator. The Hotel Bethlehem had created a real life experience that surpassed the holiday spirit that I had only previously witnessed in the movie "White Christmas". The elegance, fanciful decorations and atmosphere, savory gastronomical experiences and... More
