The Hawthorne Hotel, Salem was our second hotel on our New England road trip, it is a quant hotel with an old fashioned look and vibe to it, the staff were friendly and helpful and the lobby was spacious and welcoming, because the hotel has an old 1930's vibe to it adds to the spooky asthetic of Salem and makes...

You might think that this landmark hotel might rest on it's laurels. You would be wrong. They get all the details just right. Nice tavern the resturant is very good. The staff in the hotels makes your stay special. While in Salem why not stay in comfort in the middle of this historic city in an historic spot.

We stayed here while visiting family in the area and it snowed a lot! The Hawthorne did a great job keeping the snow cleared throughout the storm- we were able to walk the dog, didn't need to dig out the car- such a nice surprise. The hotel itself is very well maintained, modern amenities and comfort in a classic setting.... More

Six of us, representing three generations, thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hawthorne. Everything of interest was within easy walking distance, from witch-related shops and the Witch Museum to the lovely Peabody Essex Museum and excellent dining opportunities. We recommend the Sunday Brunch at Nathaniel's and the lobby's display of tea and coffee. Most important, the front desk provided service... More

I highly recommend the Hawthorne Hotel to anyone visiting the Salem area. It was my first time east of Pittsburgh, PA in my entire life when I took an 8 day trip across the north east last week and the Hawthorne Hotel was by far my best stay. I would like to credit the man who took care of us... More

Our daughter is getting married at this hotel next year, so we booked a family trip to check it out. It's a beautifully maintained building in a wonderful historic area. Our room had a beautiful view of the historic buildings in the area and we were directly across the green from the Witch Museum. We were within walking distance to... More

We booked this hotel based on a review where the manager was protective of the facility. I like that. This time I traveled with my eldery handicapped mother, a min poodle and standard poodle. I am frumpy by comfort when I travel so my first impression I would guess is pretty miserable. I am used to getting no attention or... More

We stayed at the Hawthorne for the Halloween party. We stayed for 3 nights and wished we could've stayed longer. The Halloween package was great. We were able to enjoy the party which is a big reason why we chose to stay here. First of all, the Halloween party is like nothing you've ever been to. The costumes are Hollywood... More

I stay at the Hawthorne when I am in the area on business. When I arrived after a long day Jen at the front desk desk was great. She took care of all the details and couldn't be more helpful. The staff is all very friendly.
