The Salem Waterfront is centrally located to all the major attractions in Salem in walking distance. The staff were excellent and offered advise on sites to see and restaurants. The breakfast dining was excellent, and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. Free on-site parking is a big plus. We would recommend to all.

The Salem Waterfront Hotel is conveniently located near all attractions in Salem. The hotel is beautifully appointed and the service is warm, friendly, and knowledgeable. The rooms are large and very comfortable and clean. The bathroom is spacious and features high end toiletries. You will be very glad you chose this hotel. It is definitely a first class establishment.

While I usually stay with family when in Salem, this past trip we stayed at this hotel. The room was comfortable, and clean. There really is no view to speak of, unless you like looking over the parking lot and parking garage. It is conveniently located at Pickering Wharf, which is close to everything.

Perfect location for enjoying Salem, next door to quaint shops and good restaurants. rooms are spacious, nicely decorated and very clean and comfortable. We also recommend spa treatments at Andrew Michael's Spa and Salon, in Salem a few miles from the hotel.

Good quality hotel surrounded by car parks in Salem.The hotel has a big car park and our room looked at a parking structure, so we didn't have any bother parking! Close to town centre and waterfront, so a perfect room without a view. Hotel lobby is small however here's a big bar and restaurant. As well as an outside bar...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rising six stories, the Salem Waterfront Hotel & Suites on Pickering Wharf Marina blends a contemporary outlook with an appreciation for the area's proud past. It is Salem's newest boutique hotel with a warm nautical décor. The 86 rooms and suites have handsome wood furnishings, fabrics in soothing shades and windows that let in lots of light. Look for flat-panel TVs with cable channels, pillowtop beds and high-end Keurig coffeemakers. There are complimentary wired and wireless internet connections available throughout the property, and loaner iPads are available in the lobby. Local calls are free, as are morning newspapers in lobby. It is the only hotel downtown Salem with a heated indoor pool, and the fitness room is packed with cardio and strength-training equipment. Specializing in locally caught seafood, the on-site restaurant, The Regatta Pub, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner for a "Cool and Casual Fare with Flair". In warmer weather, the tables spill out onto the patio and on cooler nights we have roaring firepits for guests to relax and enjoy a beverage or meal next to. Laundry service is a plus and Parking is always free. Our doormen will be most happy to assist with luggage assistance. LOCATION: With more than 300 years of history just outside the front door, the Salem Waterfront Hotel is a great base for exploring. The hotel sits at Pickering Wharf, close to lots of shopping and dining opportunities. Within walking distance are attractions like the Peabody Essex Museum and the historic Phillips House. Boston Logan International Airport is 15 miles southwest and Boston is 20 miles. ... more   less
