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. All of the staff members were fantastic, and very attentive to our needs. Before our day they were very accommodating, and always in contact with us about wedding... More

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 .

Excellent service and rooms. Wedding was beautiful, overall very satisfied. Food was awesome. Town is a lot of fun. Go to Molly's Irish bar and grill. Room service quick and bar service is also quick. Beds are comfortable and rooms are clean. Maids are very nice and give you privacy.

My husband and I recently spent two nights at this hotel and really enjoyed our stay. We were upgraded to a room overlooking the city. The room was spacious and all the bathrooms have been recently updated. The hallways were also very quiet, which is a big plus. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel does have a...

Old time style and elegance. The place as spotless and right in the middle of downtown Bethlehem, PA. We went to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and it provided the perfect romantic atmosphere.

Had tickets with the Mrs. to see George Thorogood at the Miller Symphony Hall in Allentown, 3/17/15. Great show, GREAT venue. Decided to make it an overnight stay and booked a room at the Hotel Bethlehem. FYI, I will pick an old historic hotel over a shiny new modern one every time that's my just preference. Always aware that sometimes... More
