We stayed here for one night and booked our room through price-line and got a good rate. From the moment we entered the hotel we received a warm welcome. The staff were friendly and helpful and there was a constant supply of lemonade in the lobby. The hotel was in a great location within walking distance of the sights of...

The hotel is so gorgeous and of course while I had no experiences, the lure of hauntings helps the appeal. The room I had was cozy with a cute bathroom. My absolute only complaint is that the beautiful old windows do let in a lot of cold air so the room got pretty chilly. This will likely be my go-to...

Large portion fed me for 2 days! The flavor is SO rich and tasty..... I think it's the bacon in the mix. LOVED it and my daughter and her beau from OZ fell in love with it too! Bartender did not know how to properly pour a Guinness, though. That was the only sour note to this perfect lunch ensemble....

I had my rehearsal dinner dinner in one of the upstairs rooms. The staff were amazing and the food was fantastic! My Husband and I will definitely be back to enjoy dinner in the tavern. The bartender in the Tavern was great when we went down for drinks after dinner was over.

She has set up transportation for us to/from the airport and followed up with us a week before coming in. She has made me feel even more comfortable for our...

I've loved the Hawthorne for years. Years before I've ever spent a night. I have loved all things Halloween, witches, spooky since I was a child. 6 years ago I had a Halloween themed wedding. Each table was named after a Haunted destination in the US and our goal was to visit each place. At a table was a framed...

We took a return trip to Salem, MA in October and stayed at the Hawthorne Hotel. It was crowded when we got there due to weddings but we were not disappointed. There were 4 of us and our room had 2 queen beds, 1 full bath and 1 half bath. What a lifesaver, it's nice to have that extra bathroom...

We stayed just one night at the Hawthorne Hotel and we enjoyed every second. An amazing original interior and an excellent breakfast. Also the staff was very friendly and helpful! If we every come back to Salem we will for sure stay there again.
