This hotel, and its surroundings, is the BEST. Everything from the wonderful rooms to the elevators and the history is the best experience I've ever had in the midst of casual traveling. My daughter and I stayed with my infant grandson and our two small dogs as it was on our route home from a road trip in Massachusetts and... More

Right in the midst of historic Bethlehem, PA, the Hotel Bethlehem is the only place to stay for the full Moravian experience. Founded by a small German sect in 1741, this city is chock full of gorgeous old brick and stone buildings, boutiques, and restaurants. The hotel dating to the 1920s is the picture of muted elegance and fine service.... More

There will never be enough words to describe how amazing this hotel and their staff are. Our stay was absolutely perfect. We got married at the hotel and had our reception there.

OK. first the good notes: I like a hotel like this, beautiful old grand dame of a building. Seemed like someone had respectfully renovated and updated it within the last 10-15 years. It's in a fun section of town. My bathroom was recently updated so it felt clean and newer. Breakfast was delicious. Hostess at breakfast was lovely and her... More

Lovely hotel upon entry....classic, but not overdone. Very charming. Nice touches with the old fashioned phones in the lobby and on each floor. Our room was two double beds. The closet was small and the bathroom was too. The size of it all reminded me of a Manhattan hotel room. But for our family of three, we fit fine. We... More

Love the lobby floors. Gorgeous old marble and wood. This is a charmer for someone, like me, who loves old buildings and furniture. That said, "old" is not an excuse to avoid adapting to the times. My guest room was decently sized for one but would have felt cramped for two. The bathroom is tiny and has no counter space.... More

We had our Winter wedding at the Historic Hotel Bethlehem. It was absolutely beautiful. Our guests commented on how wonderful everything was from the Grand Ballroom to the service they had received.

It was a delightful hotel to spend several days in the Lehigh Valley area. We got a suite which was very roomy and comfortable. The staff was very attentive and helpful. An extra treat was that they have a delectable Sunday buffet brunch. When we go back to the Lehigh Valley area, we will definitely stay here again.

Recently returned from a business stay at the Hotel Bethlehem. The hotel has a lovely old-world charm that permeates every corner. Delightful, comfortable lobby. I wasn't able to spend much time at the hotel itself or to eat at its restaurant. But the location is terrific--within walking distance of lots of shops and restaurants, and the staff was friendly and... More

Beautiful historic hotel, originally built by owners of Bethlehem steel. Nice rooms, great hot water, difficult to control room temperature, needed some new paint. Great staff, food was excellent-try the shrimp cocktail, worth the price. Nice, brief stay, walking distance to many great shops and restaurants in downtown Bethlehem .
