This hotel was very clean and comfortable. Check in was about 3 minutes when i arrived. Staff was very accommodating, as I needed to ask for directions twice. The food at the Regatta was yummy! The best C. Chicken Salad I ever had. Staff at the restaurant were also very nice. A little pricey for this slow and freezing time of year, as you cannot really enjoy all that Salem has to offer. That said, i will definitely stay there again with my family sometime in the fall.

Salem Waterfront Hotel is positioned in downtown Salem, Ma. right on pickering wharf close to all shops and restaurants. Walking to anywhere is easy and the proximity of public transport allows quick travel to Boston. Nice and comfortable hotel with friendly staff.

My recent stay was for my cousins wedding. From start to finish, everything was done to perfection. The staff couldn't do enough for us.

The location is wonderful as well. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others. It was also a fantastic place for a wedding. The food was execellent.

We have stayed here twice now for overnights. Both times were very comfortable, no problems, courteous and pleasant people and a newer, nicely-appointed facility. Good prices during the times we stayed. Great location for going to the Peabody-Essex Museum, which is itself a great experience.

My boyfriend and I are wedding photographers, We were asked to photograph a wedding on 2.12.11 at the Salem waterfront. Since we live close by we didnt book a room with the hotel. After being at the wedidng for a few hours we decided it would be best to stay, then came the sad news that they were completely booked for the night :( good for them bad for us! but to my suprise witho=in an hour they had a cancelation and the staff went out of there way to search for me to tell me that they had a room for me and had it all set up! I couldnt believ the customer service that they offered me! I will from now on tell everyone I know getting married and traveling to salem that THIS is the hotel that they need to stay at!

I know it doesn't sound like a glowing review, but trust me I was very excited to find the Salem Waterfront Hotel when I wanted to stay in downtown Salem but did not want to wake up in a creepy doll house (aka bed and breakfast). I like the B&B idea, but I will never understand why they all have to be so darn frilly. I wanted a nice, clean, accessible, slightly luxurious hotel for a one night stay, and the Salem Waterfront Hotel provided just that. It's walkable from the Commuter Rail, which is key. I do think in the dead of winter the room prices should be more discounted; $135/night was the cheapest room. Granted, it was a nice room, but we did not get any of the benefit of being centrally located in Salem during sunny summer. We didn't do breakfast there, so can't comment on that, although it's nice that it's offered. I would definitely recommend this place to friends.

Richarddustin,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property. We are certainly glad that you chose to stay with us out of the other numerous Bed & Breakfasts and Hotels that call Salem home. We hope that you decide to come back to Salem when we have dug ourselves out of the 50+ inches that Mother Nature has brought our way and enjoy our central location to all of the attractions and amenities that our great city has to offer!

The Salem Waterfront Team!
