It was a wonderful experience working with the Hawthorne Hotel and I couldn’t be happier with how our wedding turned out. From the initial call to schedule an appointment until the final day before the wedding, they answered every single question and kept me informed of what I should be doing and what still needed to be done. We meet 3 times before the big day and we are from out of town so they worked around our crazy schedule. They gave us suggestions when needed and a list of referred vendors which we used the limo and bakery which were amazing as well. On the day, everything ran completely smoothly and stress-free. The staff was friendly, flexible and able to accommodate any needs that arose. We couldn’t be happier with the decision to hold our wedding reception at the Hawthorne Hotel.
During the wedding I loved the fact you could throw the bouquet from the second story window into the ballroom and it made it very memorable. The large park next door added a beautiful view out ballroom windows and provided the perfect place for group photos. In addition, the coordinator was always there guiding us if needed and keeping the evening flowing perfectly.
The Hawthorne is a great place for a wedding because of how beautiful and historic the hotel is but also because the city of Salem sparks with personality. Relatives from out of town loved it because they had stuff to do during the day and were not too far from Boston. Friends and family were able to walk nearby for lunches and dinners while staying in Salem for the weekend. Salem has a diverse bar scene, ample museums and other points of interest that made the whole weekend a joy for friends and family even in the middle of February.

My mom selected the Hawthorne Hotel for a pre-wedding dinner for 20 people. It was such a great choice. We had a private dining room with a buffet. The staff was so great to work with and the food was excellent.

My husband and I recently had our wedding reception at the Hawthorne Hotel. Our first meeting with Karen to figure out what we wanted to do and how to go about it put us at ease immediately. We knew at that moment that we had made the right choice. All the staff, including Karen and Christine, were very key in helping us prepare for our wedding party. The day of the event, all staff, including the wait staff. were just incredible. They were very attentive to all our needs, very pleasant, helpful and frankly superb. The food was incredibly delicious! Everything was just to die for.
Susan, who worked with us the day of, was incredible! She made sure we were at ease and she was in control of everything. We couldn't have asked for a better party, a better day, a better spot. People are still talking about the event, particularly the food and the service provided. Everything was all that we wished for and more. Absolutely beautiful!!!
Thank you so much to you and your staff for the hospitality and making our event a memorable one.
Thank you, thank you, and thank you again.
