Lovely, traditional hotel with classic charm and well-trained staff. For a smaller city, it definitely had an upscale feeling. It appears to be well-maintained with pride in quality and service. There are lovely banquet rooms and restaurant on site, but we did not partake of either. Only downfall, our room faced another building, so it took away a bit from...

If the Hawthorne Hotel is haunted, it's because no one wants to ever leave this beautiful historic hotel with superb service,delicious food,and drinks at the Tavern. Our family enjoyed exploring the hotel from the library to the 6th floor and hearing all the stories, even a time capsule to be opened in the future. You see some exploring by other...

Stayed during a warm time and having the window open was the only source of cool air. They had great pet room service and healthy options for my dog who has a sensitive stomach. He had a poached chicken breast accompanied with a wild grain rice. They serve according to your pets weight and it was an extremely generous portion....

We were going to an event at the Museum and the Hawthorne was only two block away. It is perfectly situated in Salem making an easy walk to almost anywhere. The rooms are well appointed and large. The hotel overall is emaculate.

If you get a chance to stay here, you won't be disappointed! Their employees were extremely pleasant. My room was immaculate and I loved the antique furniture. I arrived hours before my check in time and the young lady at the front desk was kind enough to see if there were any rooms available for me. Hawthorne hotel is right...

Very charming hotel! The lounge ambiance was what we were looking for- cozy with nice wood paneling and the most comfortable chairs we've sat in at a restaurant. Unfortunately, the food was hit and miss. My husband had the chicken wings which were excellent, but I ordered the Steak Frites, and the steak was just not good. Breakfast, however, was...

Brings you back to yesteryear and right in middle of everything in Salem. At night the purple hue from the Witches Museum across the street is beautiful .. You can walk all over town from the hotel. The staff is always friendly and helpful .
