“We cannot thank Kathy Sanders and the rest of the Hotel staff enough for all they did to make our wedding a dream come true. Kathy went above and beyond to help us plan a beautiful event in the Grand Ballroom. Additionally, the maitre d really helped to make sure that we ate,…were not stressed, and just loving every moment of our special day. Thank you again to Hotel Bethlehem!”

“Hotel Bethlehem was a truly the perfect venue to host our wedding. Planning was very easy. Our original coordinator left and we worked with Kelsey Lynn, which was a wonderful experience. She is extremely organized and very quick to respond to any questions you will have. They provide you with nicely printed plans to review what you picked out for the wedding so you have a chance to review everything in its entirety leading up to the big day. The entire system is very organized and no detail goes overlooked. Additionally, they were very accommodating with the hotel block and providing room totals to help coordinate welcome bags. We checked in on Friday, the day before the wedding. We had quite a few out of town guests, who congregated at the Tap Room downstairs in the Hotel Lobby for drinks. They were extremely accommodating for such a large group. The Bridal Suite was perfect, the rooms are extremely well decorated, clean and authentic to the style of the hotel. The hotel was nice enough to shuttle me across the street to the church because we were not sure if the weather would hold out. The cocktail hour was perfect, everything in the Grand Ballroom was perfectly set and ready to go because everyone could see the Ballroom from the cocktail hour balcony. We received wonderful service in the hospitality suite before we went out to cocktail hour, which allowed us to try all the foods and drinks before we got talking to everyone. The staff did an excellent job of ushering guests down to the ballroom and providing high end service during dinner. Everyone was super impressed with the level of organization. The dinner and cocktail hour food was impeccably prepared. They also did pour service for wine during dinner which everybody loved. Penn State Ice Cream bar was a major hit and so were the late-night snacks brought out around 10. Everyone had a wonderful time and everything ran so smoothly. I would truly recommend using Hotel B for your wedding.”

“In selecting an out-of-town wedding venue, my daughter asked that we attend a bridal show at the Historic Hotel Bethlehem in January of 2015. The holiday season displayed the beauty and elegance of not only the hotel but the town! It was refreshing to be greeted by an actual person when calling the hotel. I received responses as quickly as possible. Followup was by internet allowing no confusion. The hotel’s approved vendor list for weddings proved they were familiar with the hotel staff and policies. They often work together, are courteous, experienced and fulfilled our every dream!

For an older hotel, it provides everything (except a pool) that a modern facility offers. Its recent renovations boast clean, elegant rooms with beds that offered superb comfort. We found the marbled bathrooms in excellent working order and in keeping with its historic preservation. The elevators served all floors with relatively quick response time. The only inconvenience was a two night minimum for a weekend group wedding rate. Their chefs and staff deserve mention in preparing and serving the utmost in cuisine! Although another wedding reception was held the same evening it was as if we were the only people there.

Dan Mies, a Sales Consultant with the hotel, provided the piano accompaniment for a flawless ceremony. All staff, especially Kelsey Lynn, our Wedding Specialist, was attentive to every move made. At each crucial moment there appeared a handful of professionals to make success the goal! This is one of the most important assets the hotel offers. They work hard for the awards they have achieved and the staff is more like family than hired employees! We found this evident whether there for just a few hours or a few days. If you are looking for a special, memorable experience, look no further!.”
