Such a beautiful venue & location. They brought my wedding dream come to life. I even have GI issues & they accommodated me. I have so many nice things to say that I'll run out of room haha. They are the perfect place to get married.
Best day of our lives
THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!!
At the Salem Waterfront Hotel my wedding planner Lara led us through the wedding planning process with warmth and grace. She pointed me and my now husband to all the best vendors, making our wedding lovely and elegant. On the day of our wedding she made sure that everything from the chapel to the table clothes were perfect. Being a very busy older bride and groom, we can not thank Lara and the Salem Waterfront Hotel enough for making our wedding easy and beautiful. We also thank the wonderful chef for his delicious food and seafood tower, the staff and the caring manager Ryan. Everyone listened to us and responded to our cares with patience and generosity of spirit. We chose this venue because we wanted a personal and intimate experience that we felt that we could not get at the other venues we visited. They delivered!

Situated in the heart of Salem! Beautiful harbor views, a great event staff, and near by venues that make for incredible wedding photos!
I did makeup for a bridal party at this venue. The staff was very attentive to the bridal party and happenings/timeline of everything. I would definitely recommend this venue for a wedding. It's gorgeous and the staff is awesome! I would love to do more weddings there in the future!
