The Hawthorne Hotel was even more than we expected! We loved the charm of the hotel and the staff was very kind and informative. The location is great, only minutes from great restaurants on the water and minutes from lots of tourist attractions in town. Salem is a great town with many kind people! We decided to stay in Salem...

Dear robin W: While your review is not very long, it is certainly very worthwhile as it touches on some aspects of a Salem visit, which we have not seen here this summer, such as the proximity to Boston, and the convenience and charm of a ferry ride there. We are especially happy to see you mention the friendliness of...

After looking for a halfway point between NYC and Acadia National Park in Maine, we settled on staying in Boston. In my searches, I saw Salem and thought it would be a great stop for the night and it would keep us out of the traffic a little. I am now thankful I found Salem and happy that we found...

Dear FoutsNC: Thank you so very much for the extraordinarily detailed and delightful review of your stay with us this summer.

We stayed at the Hawthorne on the night of 21st July 2014. Our room was well appointed, comfortable and we slept very well.

We wanted a hotel with great location, which this hotel has. Rooms were very nicely appointed, beds quite comfortable, and the best part, each of the two rooms had two separate bathrooms, which made for great comfort. Price to value was very good, food at Nathaniel's was pleasant and service polite and expeditious. The tavern was great for a late...

Dear GusRipol: Wow, what a nice review! You certainly experienced a perfect stay. You are correct in your assessment of the Derby Rooms that have two baths or a 1-1/2 baths as being the most convenient rooms for families and friends traveling together. It makes getting ready so much easier. Thank you for your kind comments about our two restaurants...

I have been to the Hawthorne Hotel on three separate visits since 2010 specifically to attend a conference. The detailed attention to quality service for each guest is superior. Its location is also a huge benefit & being right next to the park provides a versatility of fun. Be sure to check the local paper for weekend events. Many events...

As a historic site, the rooms and bathrooms quite small, but liveable. Soaps and shampoo are high quality. There are only two, old school (read: small) elevators and walking into the lobby is like stepping back in time. All of the staff was pleasant and attentive. You can't beat the location in the center of the historic area, walking distance...
