  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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 s... Read more

  • The Hawthorne Hotel had the most delicious food we could have asked for at our wedding day. We decided to use them since they were the preferred caterer at the PEM, and are so happy we did. From the amazing tasting experience, to the spectacular food the night of the wedding, we could not have been more pleased. In addition to the food being phenomenal, Julia was extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and accommodating. We were so happy with their communication and professionalism that we decided to hold our “farewell brunch” the morning after the wedding and have a room block there, and it was absolutely perfect. Ryan helped us accommodate our large number of guests and was extremely professional. We received countless compliments the night of the wedding and brunch in regards to how friendly the waitstaff was and how delicious the food was. My husband and I would highly recommend the Hawthorne Hotel for any event!!

  • We recently had our wedding at the Hawthorne Hotel on December 3rd 2017. IT WAS THE BEST WEDDING!!! The staff here is so accommodating and they care about you and your guests. I had the pleasure of working with June Jennings and Liz Dube for the planning of our wedding and they treat you like family. They were prompt to last minute changes, all food and beverage questions, all hotel accommodating and so much more! The food comes out for the reception HOT! Everyone at our wedding kept complimenting on how good the food was an that it was nice and hot and not sitting. They were blown away with the ballroom and how big it was and how vintage the place feels. I even got pictures taken with June and Liz because they made sure this all happened even when I was stressed! It feels like home when you walk in and that's why we picked them. The pricing is VERY affordable and they work with you for what you're looking for. There is so much to do as well in Salem and I promise you won't regret hav... Read more

  • From planning in the beginning to the actual wedding day everything was perfectly planned and coordinated by the Hawthorne Hotel. Our coordinators Karen, Alaina, and Paola were professional, friendly, and ensured that the night would be perfect. The food & beverages were excellent and the waitstaff that served were also professional and attentive. Many of our guests had food allergies or restrictions which were handled with the utmost care from the waitstaff to the kitchen to the front desk. Having not been from the area it was very helpful that they provided a preferred vendor list which is where we acquired our DJ and Florist both of which were phenomenal. We highly recommend the Hawthorne and look forward to going back on our anniversary. Thank you to everyone for making the 21st night of September just as memorable as the Earth, Wind & Fire song!

  • We used the Hawthorne Catering for our Reception at the Peabody Essex Museum, and we also used them for our farewell breakfast in the Hawthorne's Sophia's Banquet Hall. We worked primarily with Julia Saccone in planning everything and she was amazing: helpful with her suggestions, flexible as parameters changed, incredibly responsive to questions, and she worked fluidly in concert with Natalia at the Museum. The food was delicious, the servers, bartenders, and coordinators were absolutely on point and so very nice! I don't think we could have asked for a better reception. At the breakfast, the food was very good (and hearty after a night of dancing and wine!), the buffet kept stocked, and the coffee filled at table by the servers. We also had a room block at the hotel, which, short of a 5am fire alarm that was out of their control, was great. We had a suite for the wedding night and stayed in a regular room the first night, and the staff made the new room up for us 6 hours ahead of the... Read more

  • We planned a long distance wedding, as my husband is in the military and we were stationed down South. Karen, Christine, Ryan, and Liz really worked hard to accommodate everything we asked for-and we asked a LOT of questions. Our special day could not have gone smoother thanks to the hotel staff and the rooms in which we stayed (as well as those booked by our guests) were amazing. We were so happy to have our guests all stay in the same building and we really had the best day!

  • Our daughter and now son-in-law were married at the Hawthorne Hotel May 27, 2018. What a great place for a wedding. Karen O'Kane was amazing to work with. The day of the wedding we had so much attention. Everyone said the food was fantastic. I only give flexibility a poorer rating because although the wedding planning side was off the charts, the hotel room reservations were not great. There wasn't good coordination with the wedding planning side. Besides that, I loved the Hawthorne Hotel.
