Reviewed 13 February 2012

My husband and I visited the Hawthorne Hotel Valentine's weekend. With Salem and all of its activities we were able to visit the center of the town with just a short walk from the hotel. Because of the renovation that was happening to the Hawthorne, our room was fully refurnished as well as upgraded. We enjoyed 2 queen size beds, 2 closets, and 2 full size bathrooms for the decent price of only having paid for 1 queen! We dined for dinner in the Tavern and ordered 2 appetizers thinking it would feed us. We were fully surprised to how big the portions were to point of the 2 of us not being able to finish either appetizer; the price for our food was more than decent! The next morning we had reservations at Nathaniel's for the Sunday Jazz Brunch. That was amazing in itself. The food was beautiful and the portions, again, were more than we expected. The jazz performers were an excellent touch and made for a very romantic brunch. We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: We had the Bertram room was the perfect fit for a couple.

Dear mj73091:

Wow, you really experienced it all, here at the historic Hawthorne Hotel. Thank you so very much for sharing your excellent review with other TripAdvisor members.

We are very pleased that you enjoyed each and every aspect of your visit and especially that you enjoyed our food and beverage service so much. We do enjoy an excellent reputation for dining here at the Hotel, in both the Tavern and in Nathaniel’s, as well as our banqueting department.

Just one small detail – a Bertram room only has one queen-sized bed, so if you had a room with two beds and two bathrooms, it could only have been a Derby room. Our best suggestion is to call the hotel directly to reserve a room if you have any doubts at all about what would be the best fit for your needs. We are always available to answer questions and give guidance.

We do look forward to welcoming you back again, and thank you again for the lovely review.

Kind regards,

Juli Lederhaus
General Manager

Just before Christmas, Miss Pattikins(our labrador retriever) and the rest of her family(my husband and myself) stayed at the Hawthorne Hotel to attend Salem's annual historic houses tour. We were graciously welcomed at the hotel, with special gifts for our dog. The hotel's lobby and surroundings were festively decorated with a myriad of poinsettias and sparkling lights for the holiday season. Our room and bath(part of the "pet package") were cozy but very comfortable and thoughtfully appointed. The staff(front desk, housekeeping and restaurant) couldn't have been more pleasant. Parking was provided by the hotel, and it was easy walking distance to Salem's highlights, including the outstanding Peabody Essex Museum, as well as dining and shopping. We look forward to our springtime visit to Salem and our next overnight stay at the delightful Hawthorne Hotel.

We make it a point to stay here at least once a year, just to get away, and have done so for the past nine years. Our most recent trip was another reminder of just how unique the Hawthorne Hotel is. This historic property has a charm that simply can't be found in newer properties. The attention to detail in the wood paneling, the working fireplace in the lounge, the large fresh flower displays in the lobby all help create an atmosphere that is warm and comfortable. Everyone on the staff is friendly, helpful and accommodating. The food is well prepared and the rooms are most charming. We look forward to our next visit.
