Great hotel - probably your best option in the Bethlehem / Allentown area. Some of the strong points:
-Grand ambiance / wonderful common spaces. It's in an old building with great ambiance (but modern facilities / amenities)
-They don't nickel-and-dime you on amenities (free water in rooms, free wifi, etc.)
-Staff is very friendly and attentic
-Rooms are well-appointed and are warm / have personality, unlike some chain hotels
-Central location right on main street close to shops / restaurants
-The standard queen rooms are pretty small. If you decide to stay here, spring for the executive king room, which is considerably bigger (almost 2x the size) and only $20 more per night when I booked.
-No quick / on the go breakfast options
Overall though, had a great stay. Highly recommended!
