My sister took me out for my birthday on Monday and I really wanted to eat at hotel bethlehem and enjoy the food and the beautiful decorations. I knew it was a long shot because I had seen on the news that the hotel was full. But we gave it a shot. The hostess couldn't have been nicer but explain... More

This was our 3rd Christmas Eve dinner in the 1741 room. The hotel and the dinning room were decorated exquisitely. The food was just average. Our food was mediocre and a bit on the cold side and we were disappointed in the service. It was not what we had come to expect from past years. We have decided to take... More

We celebrated our Holiday Family Day at the Historic Hotel Bethlehem yesterday. It was outstanding on every single level. Simply put, the food, service and ambiance were all magnificent. A special treat for the youngest member of our family (aged 6) who enjoyed being the center of attention once Mr. & Mrs. Claus found her. ;-) A truly memorable experience... More

The room and location are wonderful. We dined on a Saturday during the heart of Bethlehem's Christmas season, and were glad we had reserved weeks in advance. It's a famed hotel with many private events going on, and I feared it would suffer the "hotel food" syndrome, but "1741 Terrace" was superb. They do it with a limited menu (wisely)... More

Can't say enough... Wonderful and magical. Christmas decorations were great and the hotel itself is beautifully restored. The food was excellent. We went for brunch. The staff was very accommodating as it was our 25 th wedding anniversary. There is a lovely shop inside where we made some purchases. Santa and Mrs Clause were there as well as live music.... More

So enjoyed The Shoppe and all of their unique gifts and novelties. Got a lot of Christmas shopping done there! After that we dined at the 1741 on the Terrace and the food was absolutely incredible! Melted in your mouth and thought about it for days after! Prior to eating we had some drinks at the bar and watched a... More

I am a vegetarian and the veggie dish was wonderfully tasty. Our server was excited to tell us about the history of the place as well as point out other places of interest. Good food. Good service

We went for a birthday celebration during the annual Celtic festival. There are 2 restaurants in the historic Bethlehem Hotel, the bar and 1741. Needless to say it was rocking in the hotel and I thought it was going to be noisy in the restaurant. I was wrong you could here a young lady playing nice Irish music in the... More
