Salem is an amazing place to visit, and The Hawthorne Hotel is the place to stay! Historic, elegant, and comfortable, I have no suggestions for improvement. The room was very comfortable, the hotel tavern (with excellent casual food) was lovely, and the staff were friendly and helpful. There's not a coffee pot in the room, but this wasn't inconvenient at...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

If the Hawthorne Hotel is haunted, it's because no one wants to ever leave this beautiful historic hotel with superb service,delicious food,and drinks at the Tavern. Our family enjoyed exploring the hotel from the library to the 6th floor and hearing all the stories, even a time capsule to be opened in the future. You see some exploring by other...

Just had the pleasure of staying here for a work conference. After a long day of travel delays, I crawled into the hotel late on a Sunday night. David at the Front Desk was a friendly and welcome sight. (And every day thereafter he was just as upbeat and helpful - truly a stellar team member). The rooms are fine,...

I had an amazing stay at the Hawthorne. The location was perfect, walking distance to everything to do in Salem (from shops, to tours and historic sites). Take into account that the furnishings are dated and the rooms are a bit on the small side. However, the hotels rich history and some ghostly stories only add more to the Hawthornes...

Overall the rooms and service were great. It is a historic hotel so you should expect period correct rooms (small) and furnishings (dated). Five out of the six nights were pleasant. The walls do not block the sound and we experienced a rough night with people partying in nearby rooms at 2am. We had to call the front desk and...

Lovely, traditional hotel with classic charm and well-trained staff. For a smaller city, it definitely had an upscale feeling. It appears to be well-maintained with pride in quality and service. There are lovely banquet rooms and restaurant on site, but we did not partake of either. Only downfall, our room faced another building, so it took away a bit from...

Stayed during a warm time and having the window open was the only source of cool air. They had great pet room service and healthy options for my dog who has a sensitive stomach. He had a poached chicken breast accompanied with a wild grain rice. They serve according to your pets weight and it was an extremely generous portion....

We were going to an event at the Museum and the Hawthorne was only two block away. It is perfectly situated in Salem making an easy walk to almost anywhere. The rooms are well appointed and large. The hotel overall is emaculate.

If you get a chance to stay here, you won't be disappointed! Their employees were extremely pleasant. My room was immaculate and I loved the antique furniture. I arrived hours before my check in time and the young lady at the front desk was kind enough to see if there were any rooms available for me. Hawthorne hotel is right...

Very charming hotel! The lounge ambiance was what we were looking for- cozy with nice wood paneling and the most comfortable chairs we've sat in at a restaurant. Unfortunately, the food was hit and miss. My husband had the chicken wings which were excellent, but I ordered the Steak Frites, and the steak was just not good. Breakfast, however, was...
