We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights as we were attending a wedding that was held here. We had the most wonderful room with an amazing bathroom. The breakfast was not included but the breakfast we had in the dining room was full of choice and not overly expensive. The food in the Tavern was wonderful and all staff...

We stayed on the 4th floor. Our room was a nice size, clean, and comfortable. The hotel location is PERFECT! It’s walking distance to all the Salem attractions and at the time of our stay, they offered free parking. This is important since it’s nearly impossible to find parking during the month of October. The lobby is elegant and the...

I had a wonderful stay at the Hawthorne Hotel. It's a cozy, historic property with very unique and elegant finishes. I had excellent customer service. My only constructive feedback is that the mattresses could use updating--mine was extra firm and felt well-worn. Additionally, because of the historic nature of the property, outlets are a little tricky to come by for...

We just had our daughter's wedding at the Hawthorne Hotel. All the guests were from out of town and raved about their rooms, the service and staff. They worked to meet all our guests needs and my daughter had the perfect wedding in their Library Room. A special shout out to our bartender for the evening, Peter. He made everyone...

I loved the Hawthorne Hotel! Yes! The rooms are a little quirky! Sometimes it seems that no room is the same; but hotel is great; the location is great; and the staff is great. Here are some tips; the 459 bus goes to and from the airport with only a really short walk to the hotel and costs $2. The...

This hotel has maintained a standard of excellence with us since our first stay there in 2012 and we hope to be a guest again in 2017, 18...etc. Part of the experience is counting the moments that one would not expect with such a large crowd in Salem during October and with so many events going on, but each year...

The hotel is at the heart of Halloween action. All the attractions are within walking distance (and depending on your room, you can even see the action from your bedroom window). Lots of parking spaces - a problem you want fixed for you during the prime evening of Halloween! Safety: The hotel posted security people at the main door to...
