The Hawthorne Hotel is the perfect place to stay in Salem. Right in the heart of attractions, museums, shopping and restaurants. Park and walk to everything. Great staff, very attentive. Will return. ☆

Had a wonderful time. Hotel is centrally located and very easy for walking to and from anything in the city. Staff is very accommodating. Cleanliness is excellent. Second time here and would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone. The restaurant was excellent and the tavern equally fine!

Location, location, location is what the Hawthorne has got going for it. The staff is very accommodating & will help you with your needs. The facility itself could use updates especially the room bathrooms & the fact the temperature controls in the rooms really don't do anything.

Good location within easy walking distance to Salem's attractions. Onsite restaurant and tavern provide late eating options when others in town are already closed. Friendly service - they even called the room to make sure everything was OK.
