The hotel is at the heart of what makes Salem a great place to visit with, or without the family. Whether you wish to indulge in its witch history or it's rich history as Hawthorne's home. Nearby are restaurants, bars, the open mall, the park, the historic harbor and the witch museum. The city still evokes the time of Hawthorne...

This is an old, quaint, yet large hotel right in the heart of Salem. Lots of free guest parking. You can walk straight down to the waterfront area, or across the street to the party scene on Essex Street. Head a couple hundred feet north, and you're at the Witch's Museum. The rooms are ample size and comfortable. My only...

The Hawthorne Hotel is right in the center of quirky, beautiful Salem, Massachusetts. It was built circa 1925 and has all the antique and old fashioned charm of a grand hotel. The staff was excellent and were generous and enthusiastic. Great tavern, great location!!

We have enjoyed many visits at the Hawthorne and especially enjoy the central location, friendly and helpful staff, and beautifully decorated rooms. The Hawthorne has historic charm combined with modern luxurious linens in comfortable rooms. The seasonal holiday decorations are beyond description and completely transform the lobby -- especially from Thanksgiving to Christmas. The Tavern and dining room also offer...

The Hawthorne always does a great job at decorating for the holidays! This year there was a HUGE pumpkin in the the lobby (guess the weight and win a free night!). They have excellent staff too. Angela was at the front desk and was very helpful.... answering all our questions in the sweetest manner (she reminded me of a southern...

Stay here every October, and they always make us feel so welcome! Historic hotel with quirks and charm and character. Pet friendly is so nice to see furry friends around the hotel! Food and drinks are great, and really good atmosphere during October. Love love love The Hawthorne and all the employees are kind and caring.

Clean, classy and the best place in town. If you're going to stay in Salem in October pay the price,stay at the Hawthorne. They care about their guests. Just take a walk through the lobby, clean carpets dusted furniture smiling faces.

Nice hotel with character. It's right next to everything and walking distance to all main attractions. Room a little dated and small, bathroom a little small. But otherwise pleasant for a night's stay. Free apple cider which was a nice touch coming in from a cold day out. Excellent service from staff with special mention to David who was fantastic...

This Hotel has olde world charm. I was really iffy, and hoping I wouldn't be disappointed because , well October prices are not cheap. It is a beautiful Hotel, and I was not disappointed.

MIA at the Front Desk is a Shining Star in Customer Service! Everyone we encountered were very friendly and professional. (Training must be number one concern here, and it shows.) It was my Twin Daughters 19th Birthday, and because of MIA and staff, one they will never forget. One of the busiest nights for the kick off of Haunted Happenings...
