We found the Hotel Bethlehem on Trip Advisor. The description and reviews of the hotel were accurate. It is an old world hotel with modern amenities. Our room was small but very clean. The linens and towels were luxurious. This is a historic hotel; the lobby is grand and the history of the hotel and it's many famous guests is varied and interesting. As other reviewers have previously stated, only one elevator was working and walls are thin- we did hear conversation from the hall and other rooms. The Sunday brunch was not included in our rate. It is a lovely brunch buffet, with an omlette and waffle station and a carving station. It costs $30.00 a person and does not include any alcoholic beverages. They serve breakfast earlier but the buffet does not start until 10:30 so if you are an early riser there is not much to do in town until 10:30 on a Sunday. Shops do not open on Sunday until 12. The town is quaint and fits with the historic nature of the hotel. Visit the Moravian Book Shop right across the street for lovely and unique gifts. The Apollo Grill (also suggested by Trip Advisor) was a few blocks down on Broad Street and worth the walk. All in all, it was a lovely stay.
