Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Allentown. In no time you’ll be celebrating the grape along the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail or doubling down at the Sands Casino Resort in nearby Bethlehem.
The Lehigh River winds through picturesque hillsides dotted with red barns, connecting our Allentown hotels to the quaint villages of Pennsylvania Dutch country nearby. An hour-long guided tour of historic Bethlehem—home to more original historic structures than Colonial Williamsburg—brings the area’s rich history to life at a budget-friendly price. As you shop Main Street’s boutiques and galleries, be sure to stop in at the Moravian Book Shop, the country’s oldest bookstore, founded in 1745. Or visit Two Rivers Landing in Easton, where one ticket admits you to both the Crayola FACTORY and the National Canal Museum.
Pennsylvania Dutch cooking is the specialty here, simple and satisfying fare like chicken and dumplings and sweet and gooey shoofly pie. Our hotels in Allentown put you near a range of affordable eateries serving classic Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine. For late-night noshing and quick bites, take a short drive to West Hamilton Street, or visit Easton’s Centre Square to enjoy local favorites like Sogo’s rock shrimp sushi. Step out from one of our Allentown hotels and explore downtown Bethlehem, which brims with dining choices from international cuisine to familiar pub grub. Then hit the gaming tables at nearby Sands Casino Resort. After a good night’s sleep at one of our Allentown hotels, taste your way through the chocolate, ice cream and baked goods at the Shoppes of Premise Maid in Breinigsville.
Stay at our Allentown hotels and explore four seasons of Pennsylvania Dutch country, from dancing at Bethlehem’s Musikfest every August to sampling shoofly pie at the year-round Allentown Fairgrounds Farmers Market.
