“Best of Salem”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

We used the Salem Waterfront Hotel as the hotel for our wedding block. We ended up occupying 25 rooms and overall had a fantastic experience with the hotel and their staff. I personally stayed there 4 nights and saw many different rooms and have to say that over all I am very impressed. The rooms are a little pricey, but compared to the Hawthorne Hotel (the other large hotel in the area) it's worth every penny. All rooms are updated, clean, and feel comfortable. The Regatta pub offers a great breakfast but also stays open late for a night cap. The staff at the hotel was friendly, and accommodating in every way possible.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a water view otherwise you're looking at parking lots. Also, ask for a room...

It's all about location location location and the Salem Waterfront has that in spades! All the points of interest were an easy walk away, with a pub located in the lobby which offered amazing food and prompt room service that was piping hot when delivered. The room was large and comfortable and the cleaning staff should receive an award for the great job they do because the room was spotless. I plan on returning to this hotel and would recommend it for anyone needing a great place to stay while in Salem.

Perfect location on Pickering Wharf. We parked the car and went everywhere on foot. Nothing that we wanted to see was more than 5 minutes away. The double queen room we shared was large and comfortable. I would definitely recommend it for anyone coming to experience Salem!

From the moment we arrived for our 4 day stay my family (who can be sticklers for customer service) was impressed with the setting, cleanliness of the entire facility, lovely heated pool, efficiency and friendliness of the staff which continued thoughout our stay. The meals in the restaurant were delicious and generous, prices being very reasonable. We took advantage of the Salem Ferry for a day trip to Boston which was suggested by the reception staff. Upon our return there were brownies/cookies and punch in the lobby for our enjoyment (a daily event).

Room Tip: Request a harbor view if preferred.

My wife and I stayed here and were very pleased by everything from the wonderful greeting from
Katie and Harmony to the lunch and breakfast staff.
The hotel and our room were very clean supplied with nice little soaps and things.
Ate in the restaurant twice, lunch & breakfast both very good,
In general, any staff that I we interacted with were wonderful and we highly recommend
this hotel to anyone.
We will be going back.

This hotel is so clean, the staff are very friendly, and it is in a perfect location. There are so many cute little shops nearby, especially perfect for those who like antique shopping, or even witchcraft! Its location makes it perfect to walk to everything you need to see on Salem, no transportation necessary. The staff were always helpful, and able to answer any questions. The room was clean, and spacious. The restaurant in the hotel had good food at very reasonable prices.
this time around I was here for business, but I really want to come back to stay longer!
