We have been repeat weekenders at this hotel for 6 years. We stay for romance, we stay for the folly of Music Fest, we jaunt for one night to meet friends and enjoy the Christmas spirit that is Bethlehem. The hotel has old world charm, and therefore choose a larger room size. Ask for a top floor facing away from... More

We booked the Romance package for Saturday 12/20 with an extra night 12/19. 4th stay in 2 years. GREAT hotel and Great staff ...Holiday week end was a bit crowded and a few big catering affairs Sat. so very congested, but to be expected. Staff and room were as usual Top Rate. Spotlessly clean and well appointed.

What a gorgeous, charming hotel! This is truly a place to see even if you don't decide to stay. We stayed four nights and found every detail to be lovely. It is an older hotel so don't expect a large bathroom. The bathroom was small but functional. The beds were very nice and cozy. The parking is very convenient as... More

The Historic Hotel Bethlehem was the site of the ABVM’s Annual Women’s Advent Breakfast on December 5, 2014. The hotel lobby was decorated with white Christmas trees, shimmering with gold and silver ornaments. Many coordinating centerpieces and wall hangings completed the look. The life- size Nativity scene was the focal point of the lobby: simple yet regal, realistic, and captivating.... More
