Held my daughter's shower in the Terrace room and it was absolutely fabulous. The room was so beautiful and I received so many positive comments from the attendees regarding how much they loved it. The service was such a benefit, as the service from the moment we arrived to finish setting things up until the time we left, the service... More

I stayed at the Historic Hotel Bethlehem recently after a business-related event at the hotel. The lobby really makes you feel like you are back in the 1920s. My room was comfortable and the wifi worked well. The bathroom was very small (just a shower stall-no tub), but that is pretty typical of older properties. The people at the front... More

Started in Ambler, PA for a wedding....drove the next day to Bethlehem. Wanted to check out the Sands Casino and stay over...they were totally booked so my husband and I ended up staying at the historic Hotel Bethlehem. From the moment we arrived to the time we left, it was a great experience. The woman at front desk was extremely... More

This hotel has quality and charm. If you like historic class this is it. The rooms may be small, but charming. The bar has a wonderful bartender named Gary. He has a quiet dry sense of humor, knowledge of the drinks, as well as the local.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for an unplanned couple of days. The hotel was charming and staff was terrific. They gladly drove us to a local restaurant. We booked the Governors Suite. It was spacious and very bright with numerous windows. Everything in the suite was clean and efforts to preserve the history of this hotel were... More

Everything was perfect, from the bridal suite to the wedding coordinator, etc. It was incredibly organized. The ballroom was gorgeous and looked even better than I could have imagined. I couldn't have asked for a better day!

Every person you come in contact with at the Hotel Bethlehem provides first class service. Each employee is ready to go out of their way to offer friendly assistance. It was a very enjoyable experience at a unique and historic property in the heart of downtown Bethlehem. Highly recommended.

I am in from Austin, Texas, a neat town to begin with and I am so impressed! My son is here for a lacrosse tourney and I am traveling alone so I always do extensive research when traveling to find that "perfect spot". I initially had another chain hotel reserved but HHB kept popping up so I researched it further.... More

I highly recommend the Hotel Bethlehem. My husband and I agree that it is a very special place! It is architecturally exquisite with floor to ceiling palladium windows, a glossy tile floor, and lovely furnishings throughout. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food served in both restaurants is superb including delicious ice cream produced at Penn State University. We... More

From the bellhops to the front desk to the maid service and wait staff, the people of the Historic Hotel Bethlehem are what set it apart from all other hotels I've ever stayed at. Bethlehem was the mid-point for a family trip to Massachusetts, so I booked two rooms at the Historic Hotel Bethlehem for both legs of the journey.... More
