Historic Hotel Bethlehem
Conference Rate: $135/night

The conference will take place in Historic Hotel Bethlehem. Located across the street from Central Moravian Church where H.D.'s family worshipped, H.D. stayed in this hotel when she returned to visit Bethlehem as an adult. 

From the hotel website: 

"We proudly continue the tradition of Bethlehem hospitality that began with the Moravians who first settled here in 1741. Come experience this hospitality at our Historic Hotel Bethlehem. Restored to its original 1922 grandeur, Historic Hotel Bethlehem's floor-to-ceiling palladium windows provide dramatic views of the historic shopping district just outside our front doors. Seven large murals were painted by George Gray in 1937 to depict the history of Bethlehem. These beautiful murals currently adorn the walls of the Mural Ballroom. One of the larger murals retells the story of how Count Zinzendorf and other early settlers named the city of Bethlehem on Christmas Eve in 1741. This event took place in a crude cabin on the site now occupied by our award winning hotel."
