Enjoy Penn State Creamery Ice Cream available 365 days at our ice cream parlor across the street!

Since 2014, we have been serving delicious scoops of Penn State Creamery Ice Cream. In October of 2018, we move our Ice Cream Parlor across the street from the hotel into it’s own space where it is booming in business and growing every day. With over 20,000 Penn State graduates in the Lehigh Valley, we are the “new home” serving Penn State Ice Cream to those locals. This locally-sourced treat is always a crowd favorite among guests and anyone strolling through downtown Bethlehem Pennsylvania. Stop by and enjoy a scoop of delicious Penn State Ice Cream at the Hotel B Ice Cream Parlor on Main Street!


Penn State Creamery, located in State College, is the oldest college creamery in the country and is noted for its high quality ice cream. The hotel connected with the creamery in 2013 to begin a relationship that expanded beyond serving the ice cream in only the restaurants to opening an Ice Cream Parlor in August 2014 which than resulted in moving the Ice Cream Parlor across the street into its own location in 2018. Each month a hotel staff member makes a trip to State College to bring back 500 gallons of Penn State ice cream. We serve 16-20 flavors daily including 4 monthly feature flavors such as popular flavor Death by Chocolate.

Located outside The Shoppe’s front entrance, on Main Street, is the proud home of a Nittany Lion bench.
