    AMAZING that this is dog friendly

    A hotel with character... I love that it's dog friendly, sometimes it gets old getting stuck in the 'basic' hotels lol. Amazing hotel, loved the atmosphere and the whole vibe of the place. The front desk staff was so helpful. Prime location, walkable to everything downtown Salem has to offer. They even have a doggie room service menu haha! Loved the 1.5 bathrooms as well, even though the room was on the smaller size, having the extra bathroom is always nice when staying with multiple people, lol. Would love to come back!

    Perfect location

    Would definitely stay again due to the perfect location of the hotel and dog friendly town. Hotel has a lot of events so gets busy in late afternoon and evening - one inconvenience can be lack of hotel or close by free parking during these times. Lots of hotel parking after the end of the event so could move car then. Advised the management to alert people checking in about this...hope they do so in the future but did not seem interested in my suggestion. How does this relate to dogs? No parking and the extra drive time did not make Fido happy.

    Best for pets in Salem

    We originally tried The Merchant and they are NOT pet friendly. They scoffed at our service dog in training. Hawthorne is right next to the common (park) and has an entire floor for pets! Clean, great location, and quiet.

    Best Salem hotel yet!

    The staff was helpful, friendly and so sweet to my somewhat curmudgeonly dog. Hawthorne Hotel is so dog friendly there is even a room service menu for dogs. The room (queen) was comfortable, and the location is perfect for everything in Salem. Being on the park (Salem Common) is convenient for a dog walk. I’ve stayed in almost every hotel in Salem, and this one is my favorite.
