I am a business traveler who typically stays in Hyatts, Hiltons, etc. The Hawthorne was recommended to me by a Salem resident and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. Though I enjoyed the beauty and charm of the building and furnishings, the staff is the true gem. It was a very cold week so going out in the evenings was not desirable. I found the bar to be very "Cheers - like" with many locals and regular business travelers who return. Allison in the bar was top notch in personality, willingness to make recommendations as to traffic, parking, dinner, whatever.
The only downside is that there are no coffemakers in the room. Though there is complimentary coffee in the lobby in the mornings, that's an inconvenience. I had to order room service every morning to get coffee in my room since I had no desire to shower and dress before having to go and get it myself. I must say though that a very nice lady by the name of Debbie (I believe) delivered to me every morning and was such a pleasant person.
Overall, I would definitely stay here again. It's a wonderful change from the big name hotels that may offer more conveniences, but less charm. Give The Hawthorne a try!
