Stayed here on Sunday with one nights reservation and it was all that and more. The hotel is a visit back in history with a wonderful lobby steeped in old time beauty. The room was wonderful on the eighth floor with a view of the star of Bethlehem and a great comfortable bed with modernized bathroom. After check in which was very easy and the front desk very attentive, we walked the shops up and down Main Street. At 6 we had reservations for the bus ride through historic Bethlehem which was very enlightening. We picked up the bus a few doors up Main Street from hotel at the visitors center. The location of the hotel is perfect for walking to everything in the neighborhood. After the bus tour which is about 50 minutes we had dinner at mama Nina's on Main Street. (BYOB). Excellent food. Monday morning we had breakfast at Joe's bagel shop across from the hotel which was reasonable and delicious. Monday we took the tour of the Germaine House which gave a good historical account of the Moravain people. I would certainly recommend this trip and hope to return to enjoy a different season in Bethlehem. Only complaint was the hourly blast of the train horns as they traversed through the town.
