Historic Hotel Bethlehem is proud to announce selection by USA TODAY for their 10BEST 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards “#2 Best Historic Hotel” after being nominated by a panel of hospitality experts. This is the second year in a row that the hotel has been recognized as a top Historic Hotel in the Readers Choice Awards.

Historic Hotel Bethlehem was one of twenty Hotels nominated across the country, chosen by a panel of experts based on their expertise of Historic Hotels. (Eric Grossman, Travel & Food Writer – Lawrence Horwitz, Executive Director of Historic Hotels of America & Historic Hotels Worldwide – Gerrish Lopez, Food & Travel Writer/photographer – Christopher Parr – Founder & Editor-in-Chief for Pursuitist Danielle Pointdujour, Author, Journalist & Media Personality Marla Cimini, Travel, Music & Culinary Journalist Ava Roxanne Stritt, Luxury & Wellness Travel Authority). The top 10 Hotels were then chosen by popular vote and awarded the 10Best Readers Choice Award.

“I am extremely pleased that we moved from #3 last year to almost overtake the perennial #1 Peabody Memphis Hotel,” says Bruce Haines, Managing Partner of Hotel Bethlehem.

Dennis Costello, General Manager, comments “We want to thank all our customers and friends of the hotel that supported us during the July USA Today voting process.”

The last weekend of voting was a neck and neck battle between Historic Hotel Bethlehem and The Peabody Memphis Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee. The Peabody Hotel has held #1 Best Historic Hotel for several years, and the Hotel is honored to have been that close in votes with another great community hotel.
