Hawthorn Hotel in Salem Mass and Our Wedding

Hawthorn Hotel, Salem, Ma

When people hear Salem, Ma they normally think Witch Trials and Halloween. There is alot more to Salem than the Witches and spooks. There are also some beautiful hotels and the Hawthorn is one of them. We had our wedding in June of 2019 at the beautiful and very accommodating Hawthorn Hotel. And yes, some say it is haunted. 

The Hawthorn has 6 floors and 93 guest rooms including rooms at the Fidelia Bridges Guest House which is located behind the parking lot. They ARE VERY pet friendly. My son and his boyfriend stayed there with their fur baby for 2 nights and it was a good experience. 

Inside the hotel there is Nathaniel's Restaurant (check the website for specific daily hours) and Tavern on the Green (Daily 11am to 11pm).

As I stated before, we had our wedding at the Hawthorn Hotel. It was better than I could have dreamt of. The staff was wonderful and the planners were patient and kind. 

We chose a package deal and it included alot of things that had we paid separately for would have cost us 3 times what we paid. You can see their package deal HERE. We upgraded from the classic to the Platinum. Best decision ever!

I did alot of things by hand as well. The goody bags, table numbers, candles, arch, and the memory table just to name a few. Things like our cake,from Montilios, and flowers, Flowers by Darlene, were included but we got to work with the vendors to design what we wanted. We had to purchase our bouquets and mens flowers separately. We got them from a local grocery market and the florist did superb! More on her in my vendor post. I designed the cake. Myself. It was perfect! My husband chose the topper though.

We used The Pros for our pictures, video and Dj. That's going to be another post. 

You can also use Salem Commons, behind the hotel, for pictures. The day of coordinator helps with it all. 

Here are a few pictures of what the hotel helped us create for our day. Their set up, staff, bartenders and servers were fantastic and friendly. 


Memory Table. We both have lost our Parents.

I will be doing a separate post for each of the wonderful vendors we worked with.
