We wanted to see the "Turner & The Sea" art exhibit at the Peabody Essex Museum, so rather than drive up and back in one very long day, we made a mini-getaway to Salem. We chose the Hawthorne Hotel for location and good reviews. We chose the "Cleveland room" category bed-and-breakfast package - good choice. The room was clean, comfortable, plenty of lighting (rather than those dim bulbs we find more than occasionally these days), 2 big windows, good bed. Bathroom is small but efficient, very clean. Not sure how busy the hotel was, although there was a conference staying there, it was quiet anyway. It is a historic hotel, the lobby has plenty of comfy seating, Staff was most pleasant everywhere from front desk to dining. Parking is in a lot next to the hotel and complimentary with a pass given at check-in. Many of Salem's historic sites, including the PEM, are within a short walk so location is fabulous. It is not a city one wants to drive around too much - small narrow streets and crazy intersections. Breakfast in the Nathaniel dining room was very hearty and good. .
