The Hawthorne is a nice place with timeless appeal (in that you can't tell what century you're in.) Nice and clean. Cozy and comfy. Excellent beds and showers. Our two queen room had two full baths, though tiny (toilet paper mounted on door tiny!). ProxKeys for doors is nice modern touch as I hate fumbling with swipe keys. Roll away... More

The Hawthorne Hotel, in Salem, Massachusetts, was a stopover on the way to a conference. The hotel was built in the early 1900's; has been renovated; and is well-maintained. The property is quaint and clean, and the staff was impeccable. A perfect stop.

I've stayed here countless times. The staff is always out of this world. The best around. Coffee here is great. The two restaurants top notch. The Tavern is one of my favorites. The rooms are always to my liking, and I've had almost all of the types of rooms/suites here.

I stayed here the Thursday before Memorial Day. Parking was easy and free and we were able to park and walk around the rest of the day. When we checked in Ryan at check in was amazing. He was so friendly and helpful. Later on when we had questions about restaurants he was spot on as if he were a... More

I was expecting a letter, sent to me at the Hawthorne Hotel from a previous address I had stayed during my tour of New England. The letter did not arrive during my week at the Hawthorne Hotel. I had only been able to get a reservation, well in advance, for a week's stay at the Hawthorne Hotel. I therefore spent... More

We celebrated my son's college graduation weekend at the Hawthorne Hotel. We had a fantastic stay! Reservations really helped me out with our party of 15. The staff exceeded my expectations. Comfortable accommodations, cozy bar and good restraunts. This hotel is walking distance to everything in beautiful, historic Salem. It's my favorite place to stay in the Boston north shore... More

Walking into the Hawthorne Hotel is like stepping back in time...to a time when people took their time leisurely strolling and guests were treated like royalty. The front desk staff is very well-trained and it shows. There is an inviting lobby with plenty of cozy seating, something you just don't see much in hotels these days. I had all the... More

This is a beautiful hotel. We were attending my niece's wedding and the hotel really catered to the entire family, most of who stayed at the Hawthorne. We had a plumbing issue in our room, but the manager was able to switch us to another room, which was actually bigger than the original. The food in the bar, the restaurant... More

Great historic hotel right in the middle of town. Excellent staff who accommodated some last minute changes for us on one of their busiest weekends of the year with three different college graduations the same weekend. Would definitely return.
