This was a superb hotel in a fantastic location within a short walk of most attractions. My family and I were here October 19-21 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I only wish that we could have stayed longer. During our stay we went on the Haunted Happenings Harbor Cruise as well as on the Tales and Tombstones Trolley Tour and both were spooktacular! My only complaint is that the town is a little too touristy. It brought to mind Gatlingburg, TN or any FL beach town. It was also sad to visit the Old Burying Point Cemetery on Charter Street where you could clearly see the ferris wheel. It was almost like a celebration of death even while the locals go through the street crying innocent. I would still like to visit the area again for the beauty and culture. Also, the hotel is highly recommended. You definitely won't regret staying at The Salem Waterfront Hotel though I wouldn't actually consider it waterfront. It's more harbor-side.

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.
