3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A pleasant hotel which captures downtown Bethlehem perfectly. Rooms and staff were great although I thought it was a little expensive. At breakfast they came round topping our coffee up then charged us for each top up at the end of the week!!! There are other hotels in the area with a much better customer service.

The hotel is located in the historic area of Bethlehem with lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. The rooms were beautiful and all the staff was accommodating. Outside of the few blocks around the hotel there isn't much to do but there are numerous activities with 30 minutes driving distance so it's not a bad location. It is... More

We appreciate the honesty of your experience while staying overnight with us. We are currently in the process of renovating all of our guest rooms to show... More

I have now stayed twice at the Bethlehem Hotel as my daughter goes to college at nearby Lehigh University. I have to say I love this hotel. I couldn't give it five stars because I reserve five stars for my absolute favorite hotels. This one comes close, not just because of the hotel itself but because of the historic downtown... More

Once we arrived at the hotel, we were very impressed. It was our first time at this really nice hotel. We were greeting by the day time bellman. He was very nice and personable. He waited with us to see if our room was ready which it was. He then went with us to our room and handled our bags... More

Stayed here a total of 6 nights over two weekends, to attend Musikfest, as we have for the last 7 years. One of our all time favorite hotels. The staff could not be more friendly and helpful. We had two minor issues with our room: a loose toilet seat and no big bath towels one day. I put the first... More

From the moment we drove up to the moment we left, we've never stayed anywhere that the staff was so attentive and caring about our stay. The quality of the rooms, meals, rooms and hotel were excellent. It's no wonder so many celebs have stayed there (check their web site for the list). Plenty of on-site parking, and - a... More

We stayed on the 8th floor with a fabulous view of South Mountain. What our room lacked in sq footage, it made up for in classic styling and comfort. We ate breakfast in the Tap Room every morning.
