I have been here several times for conferences. The staff is friendly, bathrooms are clean and overall well organized for large groups. There were times when the microphones did not work for the speakers. The food was great, plenty to eat.

Seven large murals were painted by George Gray in 1937 to depict the history of Bethlehem. These beautiful murals currently adorn the walls of the Mural Ballroom. One of the larger murals retells the story of how Count Zinzendorf and other early settlers named the city of Bethlehem on Christmas Eve in 1741. This event took place in a crude cabin on the site now occupied by our Award winning hotel. ... more   less
