Historic Hotel Bethlehem Unveils New Extended Stay Suites & Spa/Salon

Opening will bring more overnight guests to Main Street and surrounding businesses

Bethlehem, PA (April 4, 2024) –  Historic Hotel Bethlehem is unveiling its newly completed extended stay suites with an on-site spa. The Suites at 462 by Historic Hotel Bethlehem feature nine spacious one-bedroom apartment style suites directly across the street from the hotel. While the suites will be great for the surrounding businesses, the hotel says the idea really came from their regular guests. They have had a lot of requests for extended stay suites  including requests for kitchens not available in the iconic hotel.

Director of Room Sales & Guest Experience Kelly Ronalds says, “We’ve had guests live in the hotel for months. Often they’re corporate executives who stay five days a week but don’t want to move their belongings in and out therefore they book for months at a time. The suites will make them more comfortable at a lower rate.” Rates start at $1750 per week with a one week minimum stay required.

Some of the hotel’s other long term guests are visiting physicians who work at local hospitals and other business professionals relocating to the city who are waiting for their homes to close. As newcomers start out on Main Street, they’ll explore the Historic District and all that downtown has to offer. Longer stays afford the guests’ ability to shop, dine and participate in festivals, events and more! “It will be good for our city and it’s a great new option even for people coming for Musikfest and Christmas,” says Ronalds.

Features and amenities

Industrial Era style meets modern luxury in roomy 525, 650, or 750 sqft spaces either overlooking Bethlehem’s Historic  Main Street for a view of everything going on downtown or tucked away for more peace and quiet. Suites have either king or queen-sized bedrooms and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. Living and bedrooms all have 65” TVs, free high speed wifi, and a large desk. Kitchens include full-sized appliances and are stocked with kitchenware. Housekeeping comes twice a week and guests have access to all of the hotel’s amenities including the gym, free parking, complimentary shuttle service, and room service. Also on site is the Hotel B Ice Cream Parlor and Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop on the street level.

Hotel also Unveils Exciting New Spa & Salon Experience for Guests

It’s also ideal for bridal parties with weddings at the hotel and business guests who need some downtime and pampering,” says Ronalds. Guests can book appointments for a full menu of services for nails, hair, facials, massage, wraps, makeup, waxing, and spray tanning.
