Hotel Bethlehem has earned distinction as one of USA Today’s Top 10 Historic Hotels in America. Packed with history, the beautifully restored hotel beat out 19 finalists to score a top position as the third best historic hotel in the nation—right behind the first place winner, the Peabody Memphis in Memphis, Tennessee and the second place winner, the Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in Riverside, California.

As one of the oldest Bethlehem movers to date, O’Brien’s Moving and Storage is proud of its heritage in Lehigh Valley with beginnings going back as far as 1928—just six years after the construction of the Bethlehem Hotel was completed. Our team celebrates our community’s rich history after almost a century of service in the area, which is why our Bethlehem moving company is particularly excited to share the news about this famous Pennsylvanian hotel and its recognition as an elite historic hotel in America.

About the Bethlehem Hotel in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania

The Bethlehem Hotel is located right in the heart of the historic district in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The hotel originally opened in 1922, and quickly became a central part of the city’s significant Moravian population. Guests of the hotel can enjoy the beautifully restored 1920’s art deco themes, marble flooring, and overall elegant atmosphere.

Interestingly, the historical landmark is also quite known for supernatural occurrences—with a roster of famous ghosts that are said to roam the hallways, common areas, and perhaps a guest room or two. Fortunately, all of the spirits known to live in the historic hotel are said to be friendly, as well as former guests and turn-of-the-century residents of the Bethlehem community.
