    Lara McInerney at Salem Waterfront was truly amazing!

    My husband and I got married at the Salem Waterfront hotel on 8/11/18 and we had the most memorable and beautiful wedding. We were so grateful to work with Lara McInerney, our wedding coordinator, who came in the final weeks leading up to our wedding, and the day of. She was beyond helpful and supportive and went above and beyond her role at the hotel. I can’t thank her enough for everything that she did for me. We were supposed to have our ceremony outside, and unfortunately it rained. We were so disappointed. However, Lara, and the team at Salem Waterfront, worked their magic and made our ceremony just as beautiful as it would have been outside. All of our guests loved and raved about the food! The staff were so welcoming, friendly, and accommodating! Thank you, Salem Waterfront Hotel!

    What an amazing night!! We had my daughter’s quinces at the Salem Waterfront. It was a long and stressful planning process, but Rose, Wayne, and the entire staff there were extremely helpful every step of the way!! The food was excellent and the space was perfect!! I can’t say enough how happy we are to have chosen such a great venue. My daughter and her friends can’t stop talking about it. THANK YOU!!!
