I'm a little surprised by all the great reviews of this hotel (which prompted me to book it). It's by no means a bad place and there are not a lot of options in Salem. First of all the good: the location is perfect for walking around Salem. The Peabody Essex museum is right across the street and just about...

Very nice old room decor. Window view of Commons Park. Great breakfast but pricey. Staff very accommodating. Would stay here again for sure. Door rattled quite a bit when we returned to our room the 1st night for about an hour off and on. Stopped after that. Went to get ice on night 2 and on my return the fire...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night during our east coast roadtrip. The staff was very friendly, especially Jeff (frontdesk) and Allison (bartender). The hotel is very beautiful as were the rooms. We will be back for sure and highly recommend for anyone wanting to stay in Historic Salem. Defiantly stop by the hotel Tavern and see Allison....

We stayed 2nights for a wedding. Location is GREAT. Dog friendly A+. It's a very charming hotel, exactly what you would expect for it's history. We upgraded our room which was generous in size, but the bathroom was equivalent to a cruise ship's (no tub either). Only complaint is that you do not control the temp to your room as...

We stayed one night and found the Hawthorne Hotel to be comfortable and pleasant. The staff members were all very helpful and kind. We did have a problem with our shower (low water pressure and draining very slowly). The general manager herself apologized and took $50 off our bill. I would stay there again.

We arrived in Salem via ferry on a Sunday morning and headed straight to the hotel. Obviously we weren't expecting to check in at 11am but were hoping the room would be ready a little ahead of the 4pm guaranteed check-in, (it wasn't). Not to worry, they did take our bags and hold them for us which was nice. The...

We hosted our son's wedding rehearsal dinner at the Hawthorne and I was completely satisfied with every part of this experience.

My husband and I loved the Hawthorne Hotel. The rooms were beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. The rooms are smaller than many other hotel rooms but plenty of enough space to be comfortable. Although it's an older hotel, there are modern upgrades such as flat screen TVs and WiFi. The restaurants are terrific and the staff is very accommodating. It's...
