This is typical old style hotel that lives on its history and to a certain extend it is ok. Nevertheless the room have bad odor and the way the rooms are designed it is clear that this was not done with a clean sheet of paper. TV hanging on side wall instead of in front of the bed so you...

Decided to spend the night in Salem instead of braving the 9PM commute back to Boston. Booked the same day we stayed. Got a $135 "Economy" room which was more luxurious than a lot of deluxe rooms in NYC. Accommodations were very clean and staff members were very courteous. The main highlight for me was the room service food. Had...

Everything about Hawthorne Hotel was pure perfection. From the front desk's personable, warm and helpful Jeff to Adam's lovely, professional care while being our server Sunday morning in Nat's. Hawthorne is quiet, unique and delightfully comfortable.

the front desk staff was so professional and pleasant, helping with adjustments to the reservation, discount tickets to area activities, showing us on maps the places we might like to visit and helping us know dinner options at nearby eateries. David, Anglea, Kaitlin, Jeff, Jason and Carina were all so attentive to each question and knew the answers....great service. Kathryn,...

Can't go wrong in the Tavern for drinks & dinner. The haddock never disappoints and Allison, the barkeep is always attentive and makes a perfect pomegranate martini. She makes us feel right at home. This is our go-to place for a fun & relaxing night out!

Dear Laura J, Thank you for your nice words about how gorgeous the hotel looks and how fantastic the staff was.

I have visited the Hawthorne Hotel many times. Allison, the bar tender in the Tavern is hands down, the best part of the experience.

She is very attentive and really...

This hotel is in a great spot, walking distance from all the attractions. It's a bit old, but has it's own charm. Staff were very friendly. Only spent a night and didn't eat there, so can't say much more.
