Shows it's age, but decent A review of Hotel Bethlehem
We stayed in at the Radisson Bethlehem 1/2/04-1/4/04. Bethelehem is a quaint historic area and the hotel is said to have been recently renovated to restore it to the grandeur of it's heyday. The lobby is beautiful, but I really didn't see any evidence of it's restoration anywhere else in the building. The halls and rooms seemed worn and threadbare. The furninshings and linens seemed to be dated and somewhat chintzy. The bathroom was really small and showed it's age. The parking garage was really small, not well-kept, and poorly lit. The soundproofing was very poor. I think we were on the seventh or eight floor on the end and we kept getting woken up by dogs barking, the train going by, the maids or maintenance people banging around (I think there was a janitors closet or something right next to us). It wasn't necessarily that bad of a place and the customer service was good, but I stayed there because I thought that there would be something special about staying at a historic property and I was disappointed. I felt like I probably would have been happier staying at a Courtyard or a Holiday Inn. Some people may really like it for the ambience and the location. I guess I'm just not a historical hotel type of gal.
