Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Allentown area.
The largest urban center along the Lehigh River, in the heart of Pennsylvania’s primary grain producing region, Amish and Pennsylvania Dutch country, Allentown serves as a clearinghouse for regional farmers, quilt makers and other local craftsmen. Allentown is only about an hour’s drive due west of New York City, or about the same distance northwest of Philadelphia, and offers a refreshing rural contrast from the urban northeast. The large number of European immigrants originally attracted in the mid-1800s by the railroads and short-lived iron factories remained in the 20th century to build new industrial centers for furniture, beer, cigars, silk and a variety of other industries. Now, Allentown is distinguishing itself again by equipping its existing buildings with a state of the art data and electrical infrastructure that will appeal to major corporations. Whether your itinerary includes shopping for a wide spectrum of locally-produced goods, exploring the scenic Lehigh Valley from one of the many area bed and breakfast inns, or attending a convention at a downtown hotel, the Greater Allentown area offers the full spectrum of lodging options.
