My wife and I live just minutes from the hotel, but we love getting away from the kids and staying at The Hotel Bethlehem. First, the hotel has a great historic feel. It makes me forget i'm just down the road. The rooms have always been clean and quiet. The linens are excellent. We have plans to purchase them in the future (yes, you can buy them). One time, I had strawberries and champagne delivered to the room for our arrival. They were in our room, plump and juicy, still chilled as if someone had just placed them. We used the hotel transportation to take us to the casino. Don't want to drink and drive. The driver was courteous and prompt. I have waited much longer for a taxi at the casino. Returning, we stopped at the bar for one last drink but stayed all night. Our bartender made perfect suggestions and never kept us waiting.
My biggest complaint, if you can call it, is the hotel is sometimes difficult to get a reservation. During Musikfest is impossible unless you plan well in advance. Homecoming, Graduation, and any other festival is also booked. However, if you're just looking for a great night away or business in town, I highly recommend a relaxing stay at the Hotel Bethlehem!
