The rooms are large, including the bathrooms. There was a microwave and a small fridge in my suite. I requested a quiet room, so did not have much sunlight but the room was certainly quiet. Like much of Allentown, the surrounding area has seen better days, but I felt that this hotel did its best to be the diamond in the rough. It is one of the Historic Hotels of America, which I appreciated. Front desk staff was friendly and accommodating. There was a cute little crepe place attached to the lobby and they served up some tasty savory and sweet crepes at a fair price.

The Americus Hotel in downtown Allentown PA is a true gem. Built in the 1920s, Th Americus is now completely restored, renovated and it reopened in 2021.
Simply put, this hotel has a beautiful historic ambiance with all the modern comforts.
When you walk in, you’ll know right away you have stepped into a special setting. Original marble flooring, grand chandeliers, palladium windows welcome you. For me, it was love at first sight.
Valet service is available to secure your car in a nearby lot and bring your luggage to the room.
Once you settle in your surprisingly spacious room (with all the modern amenities) be sure to head to the beautiful dining room, appropriately named “Windows on Sixth.” Really good fresh and delicious food, drink and service awaits.
I should also mention the major uptick in downtown Allentown. Check out the Arts Walk, the Allentown Symphony and the Allentown Art Museum. The PPL Center offers sports events and live shows…. All within a few blocks.
Plenty of reasons to check into and check out The Americus Hotel.

The employees at this hotel were wonderful. Check-in was a breeze and our one bedroom suite was spotless, modern and quiet. Full kitchen was nice but for a one night stay we did not use.
The only complaint is our king bed had a well in the middle so sleep was a bit uncomfortable at times,
Windows on 6th was a home run since after the Trans-Siberian Orchestra matinee let out the area restaurants were overwhelmed. The service and food were exceptional here. We really should have come here for dinner as our first choice not our last. Hotel was also very nicely decorated for holidays.
FYI: Valet parking was $25 per day and added to bill at check-out.
I highly recommend this hotel, especially if you are going to the PPL arena, as it's only a few short walking blocks away.

I will start off by saying the hotel is beautiful and the even was great, we had a blast. However, the staff of bartenders in the banquet hall and the bartender in the lobby bar were the most unprofessional, unhappy, slowest bartenders I have come in contact with. The event held offered 1 drink ticket with the purchase of the ticket for the event which the staff stopped accepting almost immediately because people who were not drinking were giving tickets to others. Either way the tickets were purchased and should have been accepted. The lobby bartender was so unfriendly and barely looked anyone in the eye, as well as being unbelievably slow and having customers wait up to 30 min for a drink refill. The bartender in the banquet hall was also using her finger as a spout stopper on the bottles of alcohol as she was masking drinks.

If this was an event I planned or my wedding I would have been irate at the extreme lack of customer service and professionalism. This did not ruin our night but it would make me second guess if I would ever attend an event at this venue.

Greetings, Thank you for taking the time to leave a recap of your experience with us here for your event at the Americus Hotel. We truly appreciate the feedback. I am very sorry to hear your experience did not meet your or our expectations. We will certainly use your comments to coach our team so future guests do not experience the same issues that you encountered. We do apologize with the confusion regarding the drink tickets. The hotel did accept the 150 paid for tickets but there was further confusion from there. We will learn from this and do better in the future. We hope to see you again sometime in the future. Warm regards, Anthony

I stayed at the hotel with my 1yr old and mother-in-law for a family trip. The hotel upon entering was very beautiful. When I approached the desk I was greeted by the women behind the desk but then was told to "hold on one moment' as she answered her personal cell phone. When she answered the phone it sounded like she was answering a call for a separate business. Very unprofessional and have never experienced that at any hotel in my life. The room was nice but we found it was not cleaned properly. There was an open wine bottle in the refrigerator so they never checked or wiped it out from the previous guest. The bathroom floor was dusty and my daughter feet black. The mirror in the bathroom and main area were dirty as well. The next morning I heard the cleaning lady outside in the hall and asked if she could just collect our trash since we were staying for 5 days and if she could give us more coffee. She stated that I could collect my own trash and throw it in her trash cart and her cart with supplies is right there and could grab whatever I needed and walked into the next room and shut the door. Very unprofessional. I spoke to the person at night. He told me he would let his manager know in the morning. I was never contacted by any manager or any other staff member to find out how to make my stay better.

My husband and I were traveling home from Maine to VA. This was just a quick, 10 hour layover. The hotel valet was very helpful in letting us know that rather than paying $25 for valet service, since we would be there such a short time, we could simply pay $4 total for on street parking. That was very thoughtful. The kind young woman at the front desk also upgraded our room to a suite. This isn't a high end hotel or anything, but the rate was very reasonable, it was clean, honestly the most comfortable beds we had ever slept in away from home and very quiet. We were on the 5th floor & never heard another person the entire night.

This place exceeded my expectations! My husband and I stayed in their extended stay in a one bedroom and felt like we were in a true apartment! The place was clean, pretty, had brand new amenities, large size bed, and came with everything you would need to cook a meal.

I also really enjoyed the staff. Robin at the front desk was very sweet and attentive, the woman in charge of cleaning was thorough and so helpful with whatever you need, and Nancy made us feel extremely comfortable and at home!

We were here for longer then a month and cannot stress how it felt like I was at home!

They also have a great restaurant and laundry service.

I stayed at this hotel on New Year's Eve. There was a free street party one block away at monument square. If anyone needs a hotel in center city Allentown then this is THE pace to stay. Built in 1926 and recently remodeled this building takes you back in time.
For a proud Allentonian, seeing this beautiful building closed for 20 years was sad. Now it has come back to life thanks to Mr. Atiyeh, Wyndham Hotels, and the Center City Improvement Project. Staff was very courteous and friendly. Front desk operated smoothly and efficiently. Admission to the hotel's NYE party was free for guests( A $40 value) Delayed checkout (We all know how important that is the morning of Jan 1) was available for no extra charge. My amazing girlfriend is a total clean freak. She was 100% satisfied with the cleanliness of the room and bathroom. I thought the room and closet were spacious and the furniture was brand new and lovely. There was a fridge, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, flat screen TV, and a safe. Complimentary bottles of water and Kcups, and the usual girly stuff in the bathroom. Extra box of tissues and TP. There is a Starbucks in the lobby. I found parking on the street but there are several garages close by. Staff was friendly courteous and friendly. Special shout out to Jenn who went out of her way to make sure everyone at the party had a wonderful experience. Front desk personnel were great. My room was only $134. An excellent value. I hope they are planning a Superbowl/ Valentines day event for February 13th. Really looking forward to going back.

I ended up here out of necessity. It is a long story but, that review is coming. This hotel is in the middle of downtown Allentown. It is historic and really beautiful inside. I was there for work over the weekend. It was critical for me to get good sleep so that I could deliver my A game to my client. The young person at the front desk when we checked in at 1 AM was extremely nice. The process went very quickly, since we were exhausted and emotionally worn out. Our room was everything you could hope for. It was spotless! It was well decorated and comfortable. It was QUIET!. One of the nice things about this hotel is that you can only go to your floor with your room key. I like that safety feature. The hotel has a bar and restaurant that stays open very late. They were so kind in offering to take care of us. I did not want to hold the bar tender from going home because we were the only ones in the bar, and he insisted that he was open until 3am. I would definitely stay in this hotel again if I had to be in Allentown. This hotel gets what it means to be in the "hospitality business." They are unfailingly professional and polite and beyond helpful from the time you arrive until you leave.

The Americus is a lovely and well-kept period hotel in Allentown. For the same price as a middle of the road cookie-cutter chain hotel (better in some cases), we were able to stay right downtown in this grand property with a fascinating history. It was clean and comfortable—the beds, especially, were outstanding. We had breakfast in the restaurant and it far exceeded expectations for hotel breakfast, with very fresh fruit and delicious omelettes. We were passing through doing college tours and found ourselves with extra time to spend at the hotel—it was spent pleasantly!
