Picked this for a quick romantic getaway anniversary overnight. Nice ambiance. The room was comfortable with a charming old world nautical theme. We stayed in a room with a queen bed, gas fireplace, and jetted tub for 2. The bed was very comfortable and the room well-organized. It was a Friday night and the hotel wasn't full; it was quieter than I expected for an in-town location. The service was friendly and helpful. There was an assortment of breakfast foods. The off-street parking is a little tight and we saw another guest struggling to park their big truck, so maybe bring a smaller vehicle if you have a choice. A bit more bed-and-breakfast than the usual for this brand, but a pleasant surprise.

Hotel's Favourite
I recently got married in the Newburyport area and held one of my two wedding room blocks at Essex Street Inn. From my initial outreach through checkout at the end of the weekend, the team at Essex Street in, especially Kathy, could not have been any nicer and accommodating. I even gave Kathy a hug when we departed as she had been so kind and helpful along the way. My guests all loved the inn and commented how nice the breakfast and eating area was each morning. My husband and I stayed in the bridal suite and the room was so perfect for our needs with a full kitchen, living room and outdoor patio. We really loved the room and would love to come back in the winter time to use the fireplace. Some of the more basic rooms are nothing special but get the job done and are clean and comfortable. On-site parking was also a big plus. Location also can't be beat with easy walkability to pretty much everything in downtown Newburyport. Overall we had a really wonderful experience with Essex Street Inn and look forward to returning.

We thank this Bride for choosing Essex Street Inn & Suites, It was a pleasure to meet herself & guests while visiting for their June wedding weekend. We host many wedding groups all year round, and each is a pleasure from the initial booking process to the groups departure. This review makes us enjoy what we do more, as we feel like we are part of the event itself. We look forward to having them return in the cooler months, and experience the opportunity to take FULL advantage of the beautiful wood burning fire place our exclusive Bridal Suite has to offer. Best, Kathy Hitchings General Manager

My family's had a cottage out on Plum Island for decades. When I was a kid, we stayed at the Inn for three weeks while major repairs were happening. I absolutely loved it then. Haven't had cause to return until last night when the fuse box blew and the temps drove us out. The Inn's undergone some changes since that last stay but it's still warm and charming and the improvements (many ports to charge things! great bathrooms! comfortable furniture inside room and out) are terrific. We couldn't have been more impressed and pleased. And I'm THRILLED to be able to refer friends who come to visit (small PI cottage, did I mention?) here, rather than an AirBnb or overpriced and underdone hotel experience elsewhere. Gracious, generous staff and services. All around A+.

Absolutely lovely stay! If you want the comfort of a traditional New England home this is perfect. And the staff is more than accommodating. The breakfast area was clean, organized with a diverse selection. The amenities in the room allowed a full desk area, coffee maker and fridge. Literally within the downtown charm.

My wife and I had a quick stay over on New Year's Eve. The experience was very positive/friendly at check in and the suite was cozy and very clean. Parking was tight but we lucked out with a parking spot outback. We wold definitely stay there again. Great location from downtown too.

I have stayed at the Essex Street Inn multiple times. The location is great. Convenient walk to dinner, shops, and the water. I have always found my room to be clean, and my bed comfortable. My only complaint would be occasional street noise from people talking late and loud- or maybe the parking situation which can be pretty difficult on busy nights.

We booked the Essex Street Inn for our wedding weekend. We booked all the rooms at the Inn for family and friends and we were so happy with our stay! Before booking the bridal suite had actually been booked by another party but cancelled last minute. Kathy was able to change our room so we could have the bridal suite as well and it really did make all the difference. Ten ladies were all able to have hair and makeup done in the suite and be in close proximity. We were able to use their conference rooms for late night pizza after the wedding as well. They offered breakfast (cereal, bagels, breakfast sandwiches) in the main building for all guests of the Inn. We had the most amazing weekend and plan to stay again if we are ever in the Newburyport area.

Had a wonderful two nights. Comfortable and everyone was very pleasant and accommodating. Rooms were clean and bed comfortable. Morning food was very plentiful and there was a nice room to enjoy your breakfast. Muffins were delicious and there were many choices of coffees, cereal, and fruit. Would definitely return. Stores were fun and staff in the stores were very pleasant. The restaurants were plentiful and excellent.

This is the 2nd year we have stayed at Essex Street Inn & Suites. It's a property 1 block off the heart of downtown. Lot of restaurants and shops in the area. Merrimack River a couple of blocks walk. Loved watching the yachts and boats cruising. Hotel is immaculate. Our room was large colonial and the amenities. Only negative is parking. There is parking lot for hotel, but when full, overflow has to park on the street in front of hotel. The street is a quiet one-way, but I still worried about car getting hit. Addressed with hotel and manager said the issue has been made known to city and bank who owns a lot across the street, but neither one would accommodate providing additional safer parking.
