I can't say enough great things about this historic hotel. From the moment you are arrive, you are treated like an important guest. Every staff member we encountered was smiling, very friendly, and helpful. The decor is beautiful. The room ias small (this is a historic hotel after all), but was clean and comfortable. The bartender in the evening was... More

Couldn't have had a better time. Great food, band, DJ, service, room and an overall concept delivered at the highest quality imaginable. We loved staying in historic downtown Bethlehem with all the history. This hotel has been restored to its 1920s beauty with appropriate updates. We especially enjoyed meeting other couples who had their receptions at the hotel in years... More

Tradition. Constant. Classy. - Hotel Bethlehem is the crown jewel of the north side, nay the Lehigh Valley. My "relationship" with Hotel Bethlehem began 30 years ago as an engineering student at Lehigh University. Nothing like seeing the Hotel in mid-winter with brilliant lighting and snow providing a most appropriate halo. Years later, the Hotel provided a getaway of sorts... More

Thank you Hotel Bethlehem for a fun-filled and elegant evening of dining and dancing. Having been married in 1976, the Bicentennial year, we held our 150 person plus wedding reception in the Grand Ballroom. It was a wonderful experience to relive those moments in the same place, 40 years later. Sharing the moments and stories with fellow guests made the... More

We stayed two nights in late January to celebrate our anniversary and chose the more expensive Premier Starview King suite because of the special occasion. The room (#732) was super-sized with a comfortable king bed at one end, a desk and chair between the two large windows, and a lounge chair and sofa at the end opposite the bed. The... More

I organized an all day meeting along with a dinner and my attendees stayed at the Hotel overnight. I received nothing but compliments from all attendees regarding the guest rooms as well as the quality of the food. You will not be disappointed with the level of service of attentiveness to detail with the staff and the quality of the... More

The staff, accommodations and hospitality were excellent. A short 2 night weekend trip to downtown Bethlehem was fun. The Hotel B is a great spot, top notch service, food and drink - the best! Especially enjoyed the Sunday brunch, very high quality (make reservation for brunch though, it gets a nice crowd). The downtown area is fun - several nice... More

Celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary at the Hotel Bethlehem. Had not been there since the 1970's but it is better than I remembered it. All the staff were friendly and courteous. The hotel is immaculate from top to bottom. Located in walking distance to nice restaurants, shopping and historic buildings. We will be back.

Great to take your spouse or family. Enjoy a dinner here, you will find the atmosphere charming. Live music (piano/bass) may be playing, check out their website. Nice to see the old hotel doing well - you will enjoy a bit of class here.

Tom K, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. With two restaurants in the hotel, we offer a causal or fine dining experience to our guests. Both atmospheres are welcoming, especially at Christmas time with all the decorations. We have Jazz Night every Thursday, and you can find the entertainment lineup available on our website.... More

Lobby nice. Front desk nice. No valet park. Told to park it ourselves. Students checking in loudly. Ate in lobby. Food ok. Bartender Gary totally incompetent. Unpleasant. Unpardonable. If I didn't have to be here I wouldn't. Will not return. Suite was a room... That's it.
