This hotels location is AMAZING. There is almost nothing that isn't within waking distance from here. The rooms are very nice. The staff is very helpful and polite. The restaurant and bar are excellent. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Salem if I had a choice.

I usually have about 125 nights in a hotel room annually. When I need to stay in the area for business, I pick The Salem Waterfront Hotel. It is convenient to everything that I'm looking for. The staff is well trained. Management does an excellent job. Food and service is outstanding. I had a crabmeat and asparagus omelette for breakfast... More

This is an older hotel. And although the rooms are dated, they are clean and comfortable. But the hotel could seriously use some TLC. And that is why I give it only 3 stars. The draw of this hotel is definitely its location. Everything is within walking distance. You can park your car and forget about it!

The hotel was located right near everything you would want. Tons of restaurants, the harbor, and witch trial memorials are all within close walking distance. With that being said, it was a little noisy. Garbage trucks and traffic could be heard early morning and the AC in the room was extremely noisy. Bearable though, would definitely stay there again for... More

Check in staff was great, even suggesting local attractions and nearby restaurants. After a quick check in we went to our room to discover a suite. Which I had booked a basic 2 queen room. On our way to view the town we stopped at the front desk to make sure we weren't going to be charged extra and to... More

Beautiful hotel, perfect location next to restaurants and little shops in the quaint little town of Salem. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We will certainly be back to the Salem Waterfront Hotel, I only wish we could have stayed longer.

I just arrived in Salem, Massachusetts for a few days. I have never been here and wanted to stay at a more local establishment near the harbor. After reading the reviews in Trip Advisor, I selected The Salem Waterfront Hotel & Suites. I couldn't be happier with this hotel. Within walking distance to the House of the Seven Gables. It's...

Very disappointing room condition.... Aircon not central but wall unit that was ridiculously loud and woke us up several times. Bare min of bathroom supplies, no ventilation. Room still not cleaned by 3pm. Paid for more than the room or location is worth... Staff however was a highlight

I enjoyed my stay at The Salem Waterfront Hotel. It's right near Pickering Wharf, close to quite a few restaurants and shops. It's a short walk to Essex St and just down the road from the Salem Maritime National Historic Site. The hotel staff were friendly and informative and when I needed something, it arrived at my room within minutes.... More

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
