    Our Wedding at the Hawthorne was Perfect!

    The Hawthorne Hotel was the perfect wedding venue for us in every way! From the moment we walked into the Hawthorne for the first time to view the venue all the way through the planning process to the big day, the Hawthorne staff were professional, accommodating, flexible, thoughtful, and extremely helpful. When we asked for guidance as we planned our wedding, they helped every step of the way providing expert advice. We also appreciated the inclusive wedding packages, which included wedding cake and floral center pieces. The Hawthorne really knows how to do weddings, and I was grateful that we didn't worry about a thing on our wedding day. This is mostly because of June Jennings, our day of coordinator from the Hawthorne, who was amazing. From the historic venue to the great food and experienced staff, we are so glad we got married at the Hawthorne. June and the hotel took great care to make sure everything was perfect, and it truly was!

    Excellent Experience

    The Hawthorne Hotel's ballroom is a beautiful location for a wedding ceremony and/or a wedding reception and the events staff is amazing. We worked with Karen O'Kane to plan our special day and she was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable, responsive and super easy to work with. In fact, we ended up booking our rehearsal dinner and a farewell breakfast through the hotel as well because it was so much easier working with her, than with other potential vendors in the area. Not to mention that the food at all of our events at the hotel was fabulous! We had an excellent experience working with the Hawthorne all around and would highly recommend it to anyone who's looking for a great venue.

    Gorgeous historic venue and a gem of the North Shore. We are so honored to be partners with Hawthorne Hotel and always enjoy performing there. Laura, Patrick and the rest of the sales and catering staff make their clients and vendors feel like family. Their hospitality & professionalism are 2nd to none. It's a no brainer telling our brides and grooms that they are in the best of hands. Any time a new inquiry comes our way and we see they've booked this venue, we enthusiastically congratulate the couple. Every event we've ever performed at the Hawthorne has always been seamless and stress free, enabling us to focus on the entertainment, which in the end delivers the client an amazing experience. It takes team work and we are thrilled to be part of your team. Thank you!!!!

    Salem is a VERY popular city when it comes to North Shore weddings. We LOVE the Hawthorne Hotel! The elegance and class of the ballroom is something you just have to see in person to fully appreciate. It's one of the most historic wedding venues in the area and couples absolutely love the venue AND the staff. The sales and catering staff is outstanding when it comes to helping you plan for a perfect wedding day. Once the big day arrives, their event managers will work seamlessly with you, and all of the outside vendors like us. They are so awesome and detail oriented that couples actually get to ENJOY their wedding days. Check them out. You will love them...
