There are many hotels in the Lehigh Valley Area to choose but this one stands out for its location, history, and charm.
The hotel is located in the downtown Bethlehem Historic District. During some special occasions like Christmas or Musikfest there is no better place to be located. Outside of the doors to the hotel are a multitude of places to eat and drink.
During the Christmas season this place has extra charm. True holiday decorations everywhere. It was a great experience to bring my friend here for a stay to experience the magic of the season.
The building is historic and refurbished. I love the interior and style of the building which is classic of the early 1930's style and has a feel of grandeur.
The restaurant has great food and the Sunday buffet is something almost all of the locals know about. The lounge routinely has some kind of jazz or soloist playing through the week.
The rooms are small in size. This is one of the drawbacks of the hotel. The furnishing are fitting of the era of the hotel but new. The beds are very soft and comfortable. The bathrooms are modern and the entire hotel is clean. The WIFI worked well in the room but better in the lobby. The room air conditioning control needs updating but was comfortable.
The staff was very kind and helpful from the bellmen and parking attendants to the front desk.
There are no doubt bigger rooms for purchase and possibly cheaper but this is not just a hotel to stay but an event stay. Whether business or pleasure there are many chain hotels around the country that no doubt you cannot recall anything about them after you have turned in your hotel key card but this hotel will remain in your memory and stand out for its charm.
