I was with a group so I had a group rate (~$250/nt) which was reasonable for what we experienced. All of the employees were very friendly and gracious. However, during the 2 night stay, I experienced problems with my room key 4 times. I also noted that the baseboards in the room and hallways are in need of repair and...

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...

I was happy with my stay. The staff was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The hotel is right on Main street in a pleasant downtown area. There is a classic feel to the hotel that was charming but I found the dressed up mannequins a little creepy-it's not just the hotel though, stores in this area seem to like...

Produced an 80th Birthday Party Celebration at the Hotel Bethlehem this weekend and I have only one word for it -- AMAZING! The hotel and their staff bent over backwards to make sure every single element of the weekend celebration was perfect. The event staff was my partner in every single way, recommending a production company, florist and anything else...

My wife and I love this place. Stayed here recently for a long weekend and a concert at the SteelStacks. Great to have a refrige in the room. Desk and bell staff are superlative. We do wish they'd install tall toilets and get softer mattresses, but overall, this is a classic historic hotel that goes out of its way to...

Loved this hotel. Its still has a boutique feel to it and the restaurant/bar area is great. Its in a great location and the rooms were very nice. This is the place to stay if you are visiting Lehigh University. We got some great ice cream in the boutique downstairs too!

We chose this hotel while visiting Lehigh University because they say they are pet friendly. The hotel is nice, updated, and clean. It is in the town of Bethlehem, which is beautiful. They even gave us a dog bed in the room and bowls. However, they don't allow you to use the main entrance with your dog, your dog is...
