    Gorgeous hotel for a wedding!

    We had our wedding at the Hotel Bethlehem and we couldn’t have been happier. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous! It’s a historic hotel but doesn’t feel dated at all. Instead it feels classic. Before the wedding we worked with Kathy Sanders to coordinate our wedding. We met with her multiple times and was very knowledgeable! She thought of everything! One of the best things about this venue is that everything is included in a base price. If you want to supplement with extras you can but it’s not necessary. We got the bridal suite for 2 nights included in the base cost. It was a huge bridal suite that felt very romantic! My bridal party and I got ready in the bridal suite and were helped throughout the day by the staff. They let us know when the ceremony was starting and where to go. Our cocktail hour was in the lobby and they had a garden display, cheese spread, and circulating ordorvies. We had our wedding and reception in the Mural Ballroom. We barely had to decorate because the hotel had so many of its own decorations. It has beautiful high ceilings, columns, up lighting, and murals on the walls. That room fit our 100 guests with room for a dance floor. It also included 2 bars, a gift table, and a cake table. The staff was wonderful and more than helpful! I wish I could have my wedding here all over again!

    Above and beyond

    No need to look anywhere else for a wedding venue...Hotel Bethlehem is the most magical place to have a wedding and they are experts at making your day absolutely wonderful. I worked with their wedding coordinator, Kelsey, and from the beginning she made everything super easy and transparent for us. She was able to work within my budget while also including add-ons and small touches to make the day special and unique. When it came to the wedding weekend, all of the staff are so wonderful and accommodating and they know how to keep a very anxious bride calm. You can tell they are experts at the whole wedding process. The food is superb and all of my guests are still raving about how wonderful and timeless the whole event was. When you walk in to the hotel it’s like stepping back in time to the 1920s, which just adds to the overall glamour of your big day. Thank you Hotel Bethlehem for making my wedding dreams come true!!

    There is no better venue than the Historic Hotel Bethlehem! From the beauty of the building to the amazing staff and service. We have been blessed to work here for many, many years and event. One of the very best!

    Hotel Bethlehem is an amazing venue for a wedding! From start to finish, I watched the staff as they seamlessly directed my client's dream wedding day. They were so great. Not to mention, the hotel is truly beautiful. I hope I have the opportunity to photograph another wedding there in the future!
