Choose our Holiday Inn® Allentown hotels to explore the quaint hamlets of Pennsylvania Dutch country and rolling countryside dotted with red barns. Allentown has a vivid past—the Liberty Bell was safely stashed here during the Revolutionary War—but contemporary Allentown is a serene hub for museums, markets, restaurants, galleries and shops.
Your Allentown hotel makes it easy to get out and explore. Consider the significance of form and function in the room designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in the Allentown Museum of Art. Or head to nearby Bethlehem—home to more original historic buildings than Colonial Williamsburg. Step back in time at the Moravian Museum of Bethlehem, where you can tour the community’s earliest school and church. Our hotels in Allentown are near Two Rivers Landing in Easton, where one ticket grants you access to its two big attractions. At the Crayola FACTORY, kids can paint the walls to their heart’s content and gape at the world’s largest crayon. The history of America’s towpath canals comes alive in interactive exhibits at the National Canal Museum.
From our hotels in Allentown you can snack your way around the four-season Allentown Fairgrounds Farmers Market, enjoying warm perogies (dumplings) or slices of sweet shoofly pie. Take home an armload of Amish baked goods or homemade jams. Our Allentown hotels are close to the chic bistros and antique shops at Centre Square and the eclectic eateries and art galleries along downtown Bethlehem’s Main Street. Stop by the Moravian Book Shop, America’s oldest bookstore, then spend the evening courting lady luck at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem.
Book your room at one of our Allentown hotels to rock out at Bethlehem’s 10-day Musikfest every August or in December to capture the spirit of the season at Christkindlmarkt, a German-inspired open-air holiday market.
