I can't say enough about the Hotel The room was charming with those little extras: Keurig coffeemaker, fridge with bottled water, & a jar of hard candies on the night stand. Breakfast was great & well priced and the staff was exceptional.

we loved our stay . Never have we stayed in an old classic that was so comfortable. The staff was more than accomadating. The rooms were clean and roomy. It is located in the cener of activity. A visit during the Christam season is special as Bethehem is really the Christmas City.

There is something special about Hotel Bethlehem. This historic first class hotel brings class and decorum to the area. We have enjoyed an overnight stay to celebrate birthdays and even though it's local for us, it sets us apart from the ordinary routine.

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.
