I had always wanted to visit Salem because Halloween is my favorite holiday, and what better place to celebrate than Salem! I decided to spend my 40th birthday there. I arrived in town around 5pm on a Wednesday in early October. I usually plan every detail of my trips, but hadn't had time. Most places in town were booked, and the Hawthorne had only a few rooms left at a high price! I was hesitant to stay there because I like new hotels better as they usually seem cleaner. But I had little choice so took the room. I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't care for the decor (I don't care for antiques) but it was clean. The bathroom was small with little water pressure. The location, however, was perfect as I saw everything I wanted to see in Salem by walking from the hotel. I didn't use my car once. And actually the "feel" of the hotel (historic) fit in with the town of Salem and complimented by experience there. I would stay there again.
