This is a really nice solid hotel for only 3 and a half stars, great bang for your buck! The room was extremely clean. The lobby is quite gorgeous and the staff is nice and helpful.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We have been staying at this hotel for ten years now, and we are never disappointed. The staff is friendly, helpful and hospitable. Housekeeping stays on top of things so the rooms are always clean. For the first time in ten years, we attend the Wicked Night at the Wharf, the hotel's Halloween Ball, and it was amazing and fun.... More

Salem can be very crowded especially in October, so we picked the Waterfront Hotel because we had no other choice when we tried to book a night in town. Still, choice couldn't have been better although the overall price was above our budget. It's definitely not a cheap hotel, but you get what you pay for and the price is... More

Had an offsite meeting with a colleague and decided to visit this quaint and lovely hotel steps away from Pickering Wharf in Salem, MA.

We were so pleased that we found this hotel as it really is in a great location. We were within walking distance of the main st/quaint shops and the bulk of the witch-themed attractions in Salem.

We made it on purpose to wait after Halloween to visit Salem as we are not too fan of crowds. Price at the hotel were also down more than half for the same great service. Location is awesome as you are walking distance from everything. Would definitely stay there again.

For my first visit to Salem, my girlfriend booked us into this hotel for a 2 nights stay the day after Halloween. The welcome upon arrival was both friendly and informative. The room was located on the 2nd floor, facing out towards the front of the building. It was spacious, comfortable and quiet. Everything you need from the walking trail... More

Although I was hoping for a water view (there really aren't many if any available), I have to say the room was wonderful, spacious, clean, modern classic and quiet.

Loved this hotel! The hotel is very central to walk to all the main attractions. They were very nice when we checked in and gave us a map of the town and highlighted the main points of interest. At different points in the day they have cookies and/or cider for you in the lobby. The room was a decent size... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rising six stories, the Salem Waterfront Hotel & Suites on Pickering Wharf Marina blends a contemporary outlook with an appreciation for the area's proud past. It is Salem's newest boutique hotel with a warm nautical décor. The 86 rooms and suites have handsome wood furnishings, fabrics in soothing shades and windows that let in lots of light. Look for flat-panel TVs with cable channels, pillowtop beds and high-end Keurig coffeemakers. There are complimentary wired and wireless internet connections available throughout the property, and loaner iPads are available in the lobby. Local calls are free, as are morning newspapers in lobby. It is the only hotel downtown Salem with a heated indoor pool, and the fitness room is packed with cardio and strength-training equipment. Specializing in locally caught seafood, the on-site restaurant, The Regatta Pub, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner for a "Cool and Casual Fare with Flair". In warmer weather, the tables spill out onto the patio and on cooler nights we have roaring firepits for guests to relax and enjoy a beverage or meal next to. Laundry service is a plus and Parking is always free. Our doormen will be most happy to assist with luggage assistance. LOCATION: With more than 300 years of history just outside the front door, the Salem Waterfront Hotel is a great base for exploring. The hotel sits at Pickering Wharf, close to lots of shopping and dining opportunities. Within walking distance are attractions like the Peabody Essex Museum and the historic Phillips House. Boston Logan International Airport is 15 miles southwest and Boston is 20 miles. ... more   less
