Hotel was rated 3 stars on Hotwire. I feel that the rating was a bit high. The hotel was acceptable - lobby smelled of chlorine - rooms were only average in condition. Hotel was located in a questionable part of Allentown - more like the slums! My husband was with me and I was still leery of staying there. We... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn City Center Allentown for the IlluXCon convention. It was the convention hotel. It was nice & offered an affordable conference rate of $89/night plus tax. The garage parking was really affordable...$6/day. This was the least expensive hotel we stayed in on our cross-country trip to get to PA. The bulk of the convention was... More

This is a good-but-not-great hotel in the center of Allentown. (It's a bit hard to find because its address is on Hamilton, but the entrance is around the side and not really visible.) There was nothing outstanding, but nothing really bad. (My two complaints are that they stuck us in a double-double, which made the beds way too small and... More

I wanted to extend my husband's ski trip at Bear Creek Mountain, so I jumped on a bidding site and was offered a low price on a "3 star hotel" in Allentown.

I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Allentown. Overall it was a good experience -- with a few pros and cons. We arrived late at night, and the man at the desk was extremely friendly and helpful.
