This hotel is right where you want to be when visiting Salem. It's located within walking distance of all attractions. We went in October when Salem is at it's best for the witch trials. Our room overlooked the main street where all of the festivities took place. We were able to walk back and forth to drop things off and... More

Location is great - walking distance to everything you want to do, and the people were super nice. Rooms were spacious, a bit dated, but clean and very comfortable. Service at breakfast was painfully slow, but food was good. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here for 2 nights when in town for business meetings, and was put up by the company I was visiting, which was good because if I had been paying out of my own pocket this review would absolutely be lower.. I was looking forward to staying here based on the many positive reviews, and while there were some good... More

My wife and I stayed here last Fall on our second visit to Salem. On our first trip, we were too close to Halloween and weren't able to stay at the Hawthorne. On this trip, we came a little earlier in the season and were able to get a room. Lots of old school charm. The food in the cafeteria... More

This hotel was really cute. It's a historic building and shows it, which adds to its charm. The staff are very friendly, and were accommodating for our late night arrival. The hotel's centrally located by the downtown attractions. The only downside was that the bathroom was quite a bit colder than the room.

This hotel was beautiful. The decor was lovely and has an old historic feel. The hotel is clean with nice modern updates. The front desk staff very friendly, helpful and courteous. They have complimentary coffee, tea and bottled water. We're going to go back on our next Salem road trip. Salem Witch museum right across the street and shops, restaurants... More

An old friend and I met up in Boston and stayed 2 nights at the Hawthorne. We were impressed with the cozy, well-appointed lobby and the friendly desk staff (who also called the room each night to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed.) We had a double queen room and liked the historic feel - brass... More

My husband and I chose the Hawthorne to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. The hotel was so warm and welcoming when we arrived that they even gave us a card for our Anniversary! (Which by the way, included a coupon for a dessert in their on site restaurant, Nat's). We both loved the décor of the hotel. Our room was small... More

We returned to the Hawthorne Hotel in July 2015. My husband had stayed there 100+ nights for work more than15 years ago and he absolutely loved it. He couldn't wait for us to experience it with him since we went with our 2 teen aged kids. It was amazing. I had e-mailed in advance to tell them my husband was... More

My daughter and I were in the area to look at colleges and Salem seemed an interesting place to stay. At check in we were asked if we had ever been to Salem before. As we hadn't he asked what we would like to do and made a great suggestion, The House of Seven Gables tour which I would highly... More
