The hotel is beautiful, and the service simply exceptional. Registration was accomplished quickly, and the staff was great. After we settled into our rooms (a total of 5 family members - we had 4 rooms), we went downstairs to the bar for a drink. The next morning we had breakfast in the restaurant. I wasn't feeling too well, and I ordered the cottage cheese and fresh fruit, expecting something rather drab that would be a little filling without overdoing it. What arrived, however, were beautiful slices of pineapple and cantalope, a very large bunch of tasty grapes, and perfect strawberries! And I perked right up. Later we returned for a DELICIOUS buffet luncheon. I also visited the gift shop a couple of times and found things there very attractive, useful and affordable.

The beds were comfortable. The shower was very good. The tub was great - nice and deep for soaking and reading.

Hope this helps someone who's thinking of staying there. Do it! By the way, the coffee is very good too.

Room Tip: This was our first stay. Our room was very nice and was not one of the more expensive rooms.

My husband and I recently had our wedding at the historic hotel bethlehem. We could not have picked a better place to have a winter wedding. The hotel was decorated beautifully and the grand ballroom was breathtaking. The Christmas city ambiance of Bethlehem continues throughout the interior of the hotel. Throughout the planning process everyone we worked with was phenomenal. They were professional, thorough and made our day better than we could have imagined. The food was delicious as well! We would definitely hold another event at the Hotel Bethlehem and we highly recommend it to anyone considering a weekend trip to a historic site.

This Hotel is a Grand Style Hotel, on Main Street close to everything. This was a great place for a Romantic Getaway! They have a shuttle bus to bring you to anywhere within 15 miles ~ great service to go to the Sands Casino. We got an upgrade to a King, room was wonderful. We ate at the Terrace and the wait staff was FABULOUS! A very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: There's a spa nearby and they have Spa Packages - this hotel is Pet Friendly and has a Pet Concierge. They suggested persons to walk the Dog while we were out "playing".

I was traveling through Bethlehem and decided to stop for the night. I had heard of the Historic Hotel Bethlehem from friends and decided to give it a try. It was a great choice. From the moment I walked in the doors I was impressed with the beauty of the hotel. It was just after Christmas and the hotel was decked out for the holiday it was obvious they take the holiday seriously and must have put a tremendous amount of time and effort into the decorations. Everything about my stay was first rate, the room was great and the king-size bed was very comfortable. The room was a little warm but I was able to open the window which was a pleasant surprise. I ordered room service and the food was excellent. I can't say enough about the courteous and friendly staff. If you find yourself in Bethlehem I would highly recommend the Hotel Bethlehem.

Room Tip: I had a king suite which I found very comfortable.

I stayed in the Hotel Bethlehem a number of times when traveling for work. This hotel just oozes history and character. The staff to be extremely polite and helpful without exception. Breakfast is particularly good, although it's a little bit expensive for evening meals. The rooms themselves are very comfortable and charming. Without doubt this is one of my favorite hotels. I'm just sorry I don't get to stay there any longer.
