Some history: An older version of the Arlington Hotel has attracted small groups of Jews for years, but that hotel was run-down and shabby in a different location in Bethlehem. The new Arlington Hotel is unrecognizable, and for good reason, it’s a brand new building in a different location filled with modern amenities.
