The hotel is nicely positioned with a good car park right behind the hotel for guests. Dating back to 1925 the Hawthorne is classed as "historic" and it certainly has some nice features in the public areas and our room was interesting too. The bar was nice and we split a sandwich for lunch, it came with chips and was...

The staff at the Hotel were very well informed and friendly, helpful. The room was beautiful and comfy. We were facing the common and it was very quite. Great shower and bed.

The hotel location is perfect and within walking distance of shopping, food, excursions. The décor was pleasing, The history of hotel interesting. Our room was small but clean. The only complaint is that we could hear every word of conversation from the room next door. Our friends traveled with us and were placed in a handicap room. Was not equipped...

I cannot say enough about the level of service the staff gives. October is extremely hectic, but they always took time to give us directions, make recommendations, or grab us a bottle of water. We were VIPs for our first night, which was a nice little surprise. We got to pick which flags were flown and received $10 off at...

We stayed in the guest house, what a neat place! We were on the third floor, the ceiling was super low(we were warned of that at check in) so if you are tall you may not fit. It was fun to stay in such an old house. The bathroom and shower are tiny ( we were also warned of this...

Dear Jnelson633, Thank you for choosing the Hawthorne and staying with us to explore Salem. Our Fidelia Bridges Guest House is a unique historic house, which definitely showcases that people were not as tall back in the days as they are today. Being located in a historic district, I personally feel the guests house adds a certain character and unlike...

We just traveled to Salem Mass with a tour group. Our hotel reservation was set up with the Hawthorne Hotel. When I walked into my room I was taken aback by how beautiful it was, and how clean and spacious it was too. The hotel was close to numerous tourist destinations, the hotel offered a room that was reminiscent of...

Great location in Salem, Mass. Good food. Within walking distance of all the Witching sites. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. Parking lot. Close to the Witches Ball location. Good bet for your money.

Dear Bones2, We are the hotel to be for Halloween (and the rest of the year). Actually last Friday we hosted the Official Witches Ball again at the hotel, and last night we hosted our very own Halloween Party. A tradition that has been going on for 26 years.

Booked this hotel for a stop over in Salem. It's a beautiful quaint historic hotel and the staff is superior. I accidentally booked a full size bed instead of a queen and the front desk staff was awesome in not only changing it but upgrading our room! It's right in the heart of Salem and a short walk from most...

Waiting for elevators was painfully slow as there are only 2 shafts for the whole building. No fridge in room. Tv in bad spot so I could hardly see. Temp control not working and all of the vending machines were out of order

Dear Kacey M, Thank you for stating some of the discomforts you had while staying with us. I don't know how many elevators you would have liked to see in a 6-story building, but you are correct that we have 2 guest elevators in our historic hotel. The same elevators that were featured in the Bewitched TV-series by the way....
