The hotel itself is beautiful, it is like stepping back into a different era. The rooms are on the small side, but still very nice. The staff is excellent as well and they are always wanting to help. Additionally, the food is excellent as well. I went there for a wedding and everything was just amazing!

What's NOT to love about this place? You can walk to every place worth visiting from this gorgeous, historic hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. The kids loved the mail chute and the lemonade. From now on, every time we visit Salem, we will stay here!

Hotel staff was very courteous and accommodating. Knew about all that area attractions. Room service and restaurant food were very good. Room was a bit small but was a last minute decision to go there so we took what was available. Hotel was built in the early 1900s and retrofitted nicely to today's standard amenities. Will definitely stay there again.

Would highly recommend this hotel! Historic. Free parking and wifi. You can walk to all the local attractions from the hotel. Rooms small but clean and comfortable. Great complimentary coffee in AM & wonderful lemonade in the afternoon in the lobby.

My family and I booked this hotel with very short notice, through a travel website. And we were lucky to find a room, since the hotel had told us they were completely booked when we called earlier to inquire. Online, through a non-partner website, we were assigned a junior suite, which for our group of three included a king size... More

Lovely and conveniently located hotel in the centre of Salem. We were absolutely delighted when entering the hall and were pleased about our room whose bathroom was a little too small. Enjoyed our breakfast at the hotel restaurant.

I was on my way up north and I stayed the night at this historic hotel in Salem and I'm so glad I did. Built in the European style - read compact bathrooms - in 1925, the lobby is a like an English stately home. There are two restaurants off the lobby, Tavern on the Green - a cosy English... More

The Hawthorne Hotel is absolutely the best hotel to stay at in Salem both for quality of service and location. The style, customer service, and cleanliness of the hotel is top drawer. Nat's restaurant in the hotel has excellent service and the freshest food. Our deluxe room with 1.5 bathrooms was perfect for four people. Parking is available which is... More
