Enjoy Penn State Creamery Ice Cream available 365 days in our Shoppe at Hotel Bethlehem

Established in 2014, our Shoppe located in the lower lobby serves Penn State Creamery Ice Cream. With over 16,000 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 Hotel Bethlehem!


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. Each month a hotel staff member makes a trip to State College to bring back 500 gallons of Penn State ice cream. We serve 12 flavors daily including 2 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. Also outside The Shoppe are tables that guests can enjoy eating their ice cream on one of the “Top 10 Main Streets” in the country.
