Wonderful! We had a great experience here for our wedding!

I cannot say enough! This hotel is a diamond in the rough set in the heart of Salem, Ma on a brick and cobblestone street. Perfect for smaller weddings. Mine was 70 guests! Olivia Keefe was flexible and accommodating for everything and anything we needed. I loved working with her and she and her team worked so hard to make our wedding and hotel stay a wonderful experience. Please do not overlook this hotel for your special event. I had a vision and they helped make my vision a reality!!!

The Hotel Salem is AMAZING

The Hotel Salem is absolutely incredible and you should get married there!! Olivia and her team took amazing care of us and made our wedding planning experience so easy and stress-free. My fiance and I had alternative plans for a large traditional wedding at another venue, but when COVID hit and those plans needed to be changed, we found the Hotel Salem, who was offering incredible and thoughtful plans for micro-weddings. We truly believe now that our micro-wedding was the wedding we were always intended to have, and I am so grateful that the universe brought us and Olivia together! She made me feel like I was in the best of hands from the second we met her, and was SO MUCH easier to work with and more helpful than our original vendors. Olivia is quick to respond, offers super helpful recommendations, doesn't pressure you into increasing your budget, and puts her personal love and care into the entire event. It was so wonderful knowing that I didn't need to worry about any little detail because Olivia would make sure everything was perfect. When the weather forecast was looking idyllic, the team allowed us to move our ceremony to the roof only 48 hours before the event-- something I will be forever grateful for. They were so flexible and really cared about making our day special. The food was delicious, the venue itself is beautiful, and holding the entire event at the hotel we were staying at was unbelievably convenient. Everything was so sweet and personal-- truly a magical experience for me, my husband, and our guests. I cannot speak more highly of my experience and would strongly encourage you to have your wedding at the Hotel Salem.
