Our room was clean, spacious, and comfortably appointed. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. We enjoyed the complimentary Monrovian Sugar served in the lobby. Since we were there a few days before Christmas, the hotel was elegantly decorated for the holiday.

Visited here for a wedding. The venue was beautiful, the food was delicious and the staff was fantastic! I would definitely recommend this place. Uh... this says I need to add more characters to submit so that's really all I have to say about that.

Our daughter's wedding reception was held at The Hotel Bethlehem last weekend. It was perfect! The venue is beautiful, the food fantastic, the staff helpful and fun to work with.

All employees that we encountered- the bellhops,the front desk clerks , the restaurant hostess/waitress, the housekeeper, the lady who ran the shop- were helpful and nice. The room was clean and comfortable. Loved that they had room...

What a beautiful hotel! Their Sunday brunch was by far our favorite part. The rooms are tiny and a bit overpriced-- which is the reason for four not five stars. The location couldn't be more perfect. It's a great yearly Christmas tradition and this hotel can get even the grinch into the holiday spirit! See you next year!

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate my 30th birthday. We could not be happier we chose the hotel Bethlehem for our mini getaway.

Unless you live for staying in old hotels where famous people once stayed (back when it was probably nice), there's no reason to stay here. The worst things is that the rooms are so poorly insulated that you hear everything going on in the adjacent room.

My husband and I booked the governors suite for a quick getaway. This historic hotel is so charming. The staff we talked to were really friendly and helpful.

We proudly continue the tradition of Bethlehem hospitality that began by the Moravians who first settled here in 1741. Come experience this hospitality at our Historic Hotel Bethlehem.Restored to its original 1922 grandeur, Historic Hotel Bethlehem's floor-to-ceiling palladium windows provide dramatic views of the historic shopping district just outside our front doors. Seven large murals were painted by George Gray in 1937 to depict the history of Bethlehem. These beautiful murals currently adorn the walls of the Mural Ballroom. One of the larger murals retells the story of how Count Zinzendorf and other early settlers named the city of Bethlehem on Christmas Eve in 1741. This event took place in a crude cabin on the site now occupied by our Award winning hotel. ... more   less
