Beautiful older hotel right in the center of Salem. Walkable to everywhere. Classic rooms with modern amenities. Really enjoyed the Tavern on the Green with great service by Allison, Andrew, and Liz. Can't wait to go back.

Dear Michele G, Thank you for your review of the Hawthorne Hotel. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay with us, as well as the wedding you attended.

The hotel is located in the middle of the tourist attractions, therefore, we left the car parked and we walked everywhere. The hotel rooms are on the small side but they are VERY clean. The bed was fantastic with a nice mattress, sheets, and pillows. We slept very soundly. Also, the hotel has quiet time so people are able to...
