“Business trip in Allentown”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Two nights staying...
Old room....clean but little too dark....
Just in the centre of the small city with a grill bar which makes good hamburgers.
Lobby wide with very kind frontdesk service.
Very bad the Monday morning breakfast.....

Stayed at this property for one night recently due to a family emergency. Nice and clean room. Since it was late I ended up having dinner at the bar inside the hotel. The bartender was very professional and attentive, food was AMAZING! Got the pork chop special for the night. When I return to Allentown I will definitely come back so thank you for welcoming me!

I spent one night at this hotel. Staff at desk for check-in and checkout were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and safe. Parking was in a garage next door, safe no issues. Had dinner in bar which was ok at best, not much in area. Would probably not return for this reason plus it was much farther away from my business site than expected.

Stayed here for one night for a HS reunion at the nearby Brew Works. Clean and comfortable place to stay. Allentown can be a little sketchy, but never felt threatened at the hotel or on the short walk to Brew Works. The hotel was empty, but it was on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and I doubt that many out of town guests would choose to stay here, due to location.
The room was frigid when we walked in, but the heater was rightfully turned off to save energy. The only complaint I have is that it took forever for even warm water to arrive at the bathroom sink. Most likely a combination of the below freezing temperatures and the fact that the hotel was empty.
Hotel parking is at city parking deck and very reasonable at $6 a day, though some Book Early rates include this in the room rate.

When we visit family for the holidays, we're staying here rather than in an extra bedroom. Morrell at the front desk was like family after the first minute of meeting him. What a fabulous front desk guy! The room was lovely, the bar downstairs was lively and fun, and all the employees are tops. How do you get such good vibes from a diversified staff of people? That is good management, not to take anything away from the staff. This place is like home. Thanks to all of them. We'll see you again, and often.

Room Tip: Any room they give you will be good.

We loved the place of this hotel, as it is downtown the old allentown, and not close to highways or malls, but rather to real life and old Alentown, as it is. The real world. Good restaurants in walking distance. Close to Farmers market. And with boardwalk, that you do not need a car.
For us as European this is wonderful, and we get a chance to see real old houses.
Hotel nice, employees nice. Stayed here twice. each time more days.

In one word, "run". This was the worst of worst, rooms just old, big deal new tv. Bar sleezy, ghetto Style bar. Barmaid thought she owned the hotel, and if we weren't in her circles,we didn't belong. Food was probably the worst food ever, should be ashamed, feel sorry for waitstaff and maintance people, they seem to care but are unable to go forward. We meet the gm, and what a joke!!!! Had no clue of how to handle a guest. Told us if we didn't like it then leave.so we did never again.
