I stayed at the Hotel Bethlehem for one night on a business trip to Lehigh University; because my hosts were driving, I can't comment on the parking situation. The hotel lobby is classically decorated and comfortable, with a large bar area and plenty of other seating. The hotel has been visited by dozens of celebrities and politicians, including presidents, and these are showcased here and there. My room was on the small size but clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was also clean, if a little small. I didn't see any signs of anything being worn out or in disrepair, unlike some of the posts; perhaps the rooms vary in their quality? There is free Internet in the hotel, and there's a business center for printing documents such as boarding passes. I had a glass of wine in the bar area and it was very comfortable. I also had breakfast with my host, and the service was excellent and the food of high quality. I would definitely recommend this hotel for those seeking something older and grander and historic, as a change from the same-old same-old chain hotels that all blend together and don't make for anything memorable.
