We came for a wedding and everything was perfect. Clean and modern and great location. Sandy at the front desk was very helpful. Restaurant was good. They provide coffee in the lobby in the morning. Would return.

First the name is a bit misleading, the hotel is not Waterfront. Its within 150 yards of a marina but not on the inlet or ocean. The location of the hotel is within walking distance of almost everything you want to see in Salem. The hotel is tired though, cracks in my rooms ceiling, bed was worn out. Overall could... More

The room was comfortable and clean. The location was walking distance to all the sights we were interested in seeing. The staff were friendly, but not always knowledgable. Two people we spoke to had just started working within a week, but they were able to find someone to help us. We liked being close to the harbor. It was a... More

This hotel gets a 4 because it's excellently located and has clean, comfortable rooms. The lobby area looks very grand but the rooms themselves are a bit dated and could do with a bit of TLC. I stayed for one night, and it was fine, but nothing special.

Pros: Location! Walking distance to everything we were interested in seeing! Gorgeous hotel inside and out. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean room. Reservation exactly as requested. Con: Loud not so functioning air conditioning unit. No so annoying that we asked to be moved, but worth mentioning.

Location very central to seeing the town of Salem. Spacious king suite with kitchenette. Mattress on fold out couch was filthy, didn't look like carpets or couch cushions had been vacuumed since last visitor. TVs did not work second night we were there but it was too late at night to address it. Checked out the next day.

Had a lovely Junior Suite in order to have a King Bed. Very nicely appointed, Terry Robes, great bedding, clean. Macaroons and lemon water in lobby was a sweet treat. Walking to the harbor area with lots of restaurants and shops was no issue.

Came here in august, got there super early, the girl at the front desk at 8am was great, gave me a parking permit and told me to come back (knew this would be the case anyways so we went to get breakfast) when we came back, there must have been something up with my room or they were feeling generous...

This hotel is right in the center of the city, set on historic Derby Street just a few minutes walk from all the attractions, pick up the Heritage Trail outside and follow it to all kinds of significant locations. The staff is great and rooms are spacious and clean, when we had a small issue this time with our room... More

If you are looking for a Salem hotel with a pool, this is basically your only option-- but it's a pretty good one. This was our third stay at the Salem Waterfront; our first was just after it had opened several years ago. The hotel was as solid as we remembered. The good: the pool is warm and sparkling clear,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rising six stories, the Salem Waterfront Hotel & Suites on Pickering Wharf Marina blends a contemporary outlook with an appreciation for the area's proud past. It is Salem's newest boutique hotel with a warm nautical décor. The 86 rooms and suites have handsome wood furnishings, fabrics in soothing shades and windows that let in lots of light. Look for flat-panel TVs with cable channels, pillowtop beds and high-end Keurig coffeemakers. There are complimentary wired and wireless internet connections available throughout the property, and loaner iPads are available in the lobby. Local calls are free, as are morning newspapers in lobby. It is the only hotel downtown Salem with a heated indoor pool, and the fitness room is packed with cardio and strength-training equipment. Specializing in locally caught seafood, the on-site restaurant, The Regatta Pub, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner for a "Cool and Casual Fare with Flair". In warmer weather, the tables spill out onto the patio and on cooler nights we have roaring firepits for guests to relax and enjoy a beverage or meal next to. Laundry service is a plus and Parking is always free. Our doormen will be most happy to assist with luggage assistance. LOCATION: With more than 300 years of history just outside the front door, the Salem Waterfront Hotel is a great base for exploring. The hotel sits at Pickering Wharf, close to lots of shopping and dining opportunities. Within walking distance are attractions like the Peabody Essex Museum and the historic Phillips House. Boston Logan International Airport is 15 miles southwest and Boston is 20 miles. ... more   less
