Historic Hotel Bethlehem is proud to announce selection by USA TODAY for their 10BEST 2019 Readers Choice Awards “Best Historic Hotel” after being nominated by a panel of hospitality experts. This is the first time that the hotel has been nominated for this annual national recognition.

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. (Marla Cimini, Journalist for USA TODAY – 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)  The top 10 Hotels were then chosen by popular vote and awarded the 10Best Readers Choice Award.

“Thanks to the support of our loyal guests and the Lehigh Valley customer community, we are honored to attain the distinctive ‘Top 10 Designation’,” says Bruce Haines, Managing Partner. “Selection by this distinguished panel for Top 20 designation for the first time was the culmination of 20 years of a dedicated commitment to restoring the Hotel Bethlehem to the elegance and grandeur of its 1920’s legacy.”

“The overwhelming response from our community to propel the Hotel to Top 10 status during the voting process was extremely rewarding to our associates and management team at the hotel,” says Dennis Costello, General Manager.

“I am both familiar with and proud to be listed among these great Historic Hotels as a result of my 35 years in the industry,” says Costello, who’s career has included working at 4-diamond properties such as The Sagamore in Bolton Landing, NY, Hilton New Orleans Riverside and the Ambassador Hotel in Chicago in addition to his 14 years at Historic Hotel Bethlehem.

“Achieving national recognition has been our vision since we affiliated with Historic Hotels of America in 2004,” said Haines. “This is a great day for all of us that have played a role in restoring Grand Dame of Main Street.”
