My husband and I visited the Hawthorne recently for a family wedding. The hotel is amazing, it exudes old fashioned style and charm. All of the lovely old features have been left, it is like a trip back in time. The huge lobby is warm and welcoming. The staff is both very professional and friendly. The food in both restaurants...

I spent most of the month of February at the historic hotel. While there the staff made me feel as I was part of the family. Special thanks to Alison, Cody & Liz H. For making my trip to Salem one that I'll remember forever. Absolutely can't wait to return in the spring.

Great Staff.. But the room was too small.. Love love that they had books in the receptionist area.. Also I love that in every floor they had sitting areas and little souvenirs.. And also live that they kept the products name still usable.. :)

The Hawthorne is a lovely hotel. The staff is congenial and helpful. Breakfast was delicious. The homemade corn beef hash is the best I've ever eaten. Seriously, and I'm a corned beef hash connoisseur. The rooms were gracious with comfortable beds. I have fibromyalgia and slept well.

We stayed at the Hawthorne Hotel with 3 other couples on February 21, 2015. This is a beautiful old, historic hotel across the street from the Salem Common (park). One of my favorite things was the view out the large windows at night - of the twinkle lights in the park. We had a corner room with 3 large windows,... More

My fiance and I went up for Valentines Day weekend (Salem has a ice sculpture and chocolate festival at this time of year) and we could not have had a better experience.

The Hawthorn Hotel is an older property. But, the staff make it a gem. From the young woman, Sam, who checked me in, to the waitstaff in the restaurant, they could not have been more helpful, accommodating, or pleasant. It was such a great experience, I plan to return for a pleasure trip very soon. The hotel is situated perfectly... More
