Beautiful hotel but don't get a room near the road. The noise from the traffic kept me up all night --- motorcycles, trucks backing up, car alarms. I couldn't sleep all night. The room itself was fairly nice, but no exhaust fan in the bathroom so the wallpaper was pealing off the walls. Area near the hotel was very nice,...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 April 2017

I must say that this was one of my best experiences ever in a hotel. The hotel has been nicely mantained, it has that old charm with modern amenities. The hotel rooms are super comfortable and nicely decorated. Bathrooms were recently and very nicely renovated, but most importantly are very clean and towels are new and soft. Food is just...

After staying outside of the downtown area on my first few trips to Bethlehem, I decided to stay downtown in this historic hotel. It's always risky staying in a historic hotel, but this was the best decision I could have made. Every last detail about this hotel makes you feel cared for...the small gift in your room, the spritzer with...

I was again delighted with my recent stay at this property.

This downtown Bethlehem gem is not to be missed. A gorgeous property with an amazing restaurant and bar coupled with an outstanding location. Do not miss the Penn State Creamery for great ice cream and the brunches at the hotel.

The Hotel Bethlehem is a gem. The shops in town seem to be increasingly geared toward day-trippers rather than history-lovers or upscale shoppers, but the hotel maintains a sense of dignity and of old-world ambiance that's charming. The lobby can be bustling and noisy, but the rooms are quiet: Ask for one on a higher floor, and you'll likely have...

We are conveniently located in the heart of the historic district that surrounds our hotel in Bethlehem Embrace our beautifully decorated and newly renovated historic Bethlehem hotel. Come experience world-class service, charming guest accommodations, elegantly appointed lobby and common areas, beautiful yet efficient banquet and meeting facilities, and Award winning cuisine. 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
