The hotel stands out for its location, history and charm is located in the downtown Bethlehem Historic District.
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 a Sunday buffet. The lounge routinely has some kind of jazz or soloist playing through the week.
We stayed in an executive King and found it quite spacious, (The bathroom was small, yes but it was charming as well and plenty of nice towels) The furnishing are fitting of the era of the hotel but new. The bed was very comfortable and bed linens luxurious. This is really important to me. The WIFI worked great.
I can’t say enough about the staff, from the time I made our reservation, I spoke with Heather……she couldn’t have been more helpful as well as Alice, the reservation manager. All of the staff was very kind and helpful from the bellmen and parking attendants to the front desk.
We came from California and were there for 3 nights. We arrived on a Thursday evening
and we had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed the jazz music.
We ate quite a few meals at the hotel and the food was outstanding.
I think if you enjoy something unique, meticulously clean, upscale and charming…….
This is the place. I don’t think I would stay any place else if I came to Bethlehem again.
