Stayed 5/22 to 5/23 (was supposed to stay til 5/24 checked out early). Total of 3 adults. Cons: Hotel is pricey for what it is. The lobby had a strong stale floral odor. The front desk was not helpful nor friendly. The room (furniture, carpet, etc) was dingy and in need of a deep clean or replacement. The sofa bed...

Dear angeljz72, I am surprised and disappointed to learn of your grievances only after your departure. I have checked our call logs to see where we may have dropped the ball here and was saddened to notice that we had not been made aware of your discomfort and that this was the reason for your early departure. I do recall...

Even with a discount booking, this hotel is extremely expensive. It's nice enough, but what you are really paying for is the location. It is walking distance from most things, even with a rollator. Room service is available til 10pm but the menu is limited. They really should offer a significantly reduced rate November-May as not all the Salem attractions...

A very comfortable and sedate hotel in the center of Salem. The rooms were spacious and well appointed and the decor was pleasant. We attended a friend's wedding there and the staff was terrific. The breakfast in the hotel's pub was delicious.

So much of the town is walkable and this hotel is right in the thick of it. You can park your car for the whole weekend because there are so many things within walking distance. The hotel staff is outstanding, very attentive, polite and accommodating. The bar/restaurant downstairs has solid options for all meals and the pool was worth a...

The Salem Waterfront Hotel & Suites is in the perfect location if you are interested in staying in Salem, MA. Walking distance to everything (Commutator rail, restaurants, Pickering Wharf, House of 7 Gables, Salem Witch EVERYTHING) and free parking. Unfortunately, the accommodations were slacking. Our beds were very uncomfortable, the temperature of the room was very difficult to control (either...

We were vacationing and arrived early, around noon with a 3pm checkin. Desk said they would call our cell when the room was ready but never called. Our room was ready when we returned from sight seeing at 4 pm. Checkin was efficient but mostly business in attitude. The room was great and comfortable. The location is within walking distance...

When I made a reservation at the Salem Waterfront, I was informed of the 3-day cancellation policy. I was NOT INFORMED, however, of a $25 cancellation fee even if the reservation is cancelled prior to the 3-day deadline. Needless to say, I was very surprised when I received this charge on my credit card. My travel agent contacted the hotel...

Dear Menschette29, I'm sorry you were taken aback by our $25 card processing fee which applies to all cancellations. This fee is indeed listed on the confirmation email that we send to each guest. Seeing as your room was booked by a travel agency, you may not have had the opportunity to review our policies; unless they were relayed to...

Rooms were amazing. Super friendly staff! Even after I left and realized I left my Kindle behind, the staff was super nice and found it for me! Breakfast was great. Wish I stayed longer. Definitely will be back!!

Stayed here for one night last week and would definitely stay here again. Pleasant staff, comfortable room and bed, not too much street noise and you can walk to just about everywhere. We have stayed at a few places in Salem but this is one of the best so far.

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
