My husband and I received a gift certificate for the Hotel Bethlehem and we finally made it there to stay the night. I have to say I love old buildings and this building does not disappoint. The architecture is just amazing and the ball rooms were beautiful. The rooms are quirky- the setup depends on the layout of the floor....

Beautiful historic hotel. Room were very clean and comfortable. Bar area was lovely. We also enjoyed a nice breakfast. Only issue is I wish they had valet parking. It was raining very hard upon checking in . We had to park in the weird parking garage next to hotel. The ramps are so narrow in the garage that I scraped...

We spent the week at the historic hotel and it was wonderful. Service was very friendly, courteous and very professional. The rooms were very nice and the surroundings just delightful. The chef's hot chocolate was to die for. Food at the hotel was delicious and they were able to accomodate me with my food allergies.

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
