We were fortunate to stay 2 nights (including New Years Eve). The hotel is so charming and steeped in history! Not to mention, the town itself is very quaint. Our room overlooked Main Street and even being on the 6th floor we could sometimes hear the soft sound of a horse drawn carriage passing by. The room was adequately sized and had a small fridge and Kuereg coffee maker. Since we were there for a wedding with a large group of friends, we spent a lot of time in the beautifully decorated common areas of the hotel. The wedding reception itself was over the top, with a cocktail hour on a balcony overlooking the beautiful ballroom where the reception was held. The staff at the reception were extremely attentive and caring. Everyone in our group is looking forward to a return trip to the Historic Bethlehem Hotel next fall/winter to take advantage of all of the Christmas events that happen in the city each year...and stay in this warm and welcoming hotel!! I recommend asking for a room facing Main Street.
