We stayed at this hotel with another couple during a weekend getaway. This Hotel is located in the perfect spot. Easy to walk to restaurants, pubs, shops. The Witch Museum is right across the street. The rooms are beautifully appointed and very comfortable. Pets are allowed in the hotel and you will see them being led through the lobby etc.... More

Very nice. Good "sense of place" (it's not a cookie cutter Hilton). Everyone seems to agree that the rooms are small. So is the bathroom, but it was functional. One of the big bathroom problems that I have encountered is lack of shelf space to take out your (and spouse's) stuff. Reasonable amount of shelf space here. Very well located.... More

Free Hotel parking, great helpful staff on reception. The room was clean and spacious. No coffee or tea making in the room but coffee is available in the lobby in the morning. They also offer a free bottle of water per person, per stay. I would check if they have any breakfast saving options if you decide to eat in... More

Check in at 4 and walked into a cigarette smoke infested room. Called the front desk and was told this. "If you wanted to avoid this you should have requested a room on the third floor! How would I know this? Why should I have to know this? They did give me a new room which was ok. It is... More

Dear Valley2013, Our hotel is 100% non smoking, so I am a bit puzzled at the response you received. On rare occasions we do have guests who try to smoke in the rooms, and we are very proactive in making sure that our guests understand that this is not acceptable. I will make sure to speak to the front desk... More

This is a historic property. Rooms can be small but if you keep that in mind, you can always ask for a bigger room if needed. Our room was awesome. Service incredible and friendly.

This hotel is centrally located to just about everything in Salem. Our stay here was very pleasant from the moment we checked in at the front desk.

The night tour guide recommended the Hawthorne as a place to visit and so we did. After walking all day, we were hot and needed a place to sit and cool off, so we had appetizers and drinks in the late afternoon, which were to die for. We wished we had booked our rooms at the Hawthorne for our visit,... More

Definitely great food! Waitstaff provided great suggestions. Three course buffet with drink options. I chose the garden salad to start, the Belgian waffle with fresh strawberries & ended with the raspberry bon bon dessert - the best part! I tried my friends' home fries & crab cake (part of the seafood egg benedict) - both were flavorful!
