About Us

Wedding receptions have been a tradition at the Hawthorne Hotel for more than three quarters of a century. The Hotel echoes a lost grandeur…and elegance that is identified only with the Hawthorne.

Personal service and attention to detail are our hallmarks. Your wedding will reflect your own personal style, in the classic setting of the Hawthorne Hotel.

Our Grand Ballroom provides an elegance unique to any facility on the North Shore. The magnificent Palladian windows overlooking the Salem Common offer a perfect picture of the four seasons enjoyed in New England. Our 6 smaller event spaces, including Nathaniel's Restaurant and Sophia's (adjacent to our restaurant) are ideal for small intimate weddings, rehearsal dinners, post wedding brunch or any other of the exciting activities surrounding your wedding day.

We have created a unique selection of wedding packages to fit your individual needs and our team of vendors can assist you with all the details from wedding invitations to honeymoon locations.

The Hawthorne offers 89 tastefully appointed guest rooms and a four-room bed and breakfast for your relatives or out-of-town guests. We will be happy to serve the appropriate number of accommodations for you and your guests.

We are hopeful that we will have the pleasure of helping you plan the perfect wedding. We would be delighted to meet with you and show you our facilities for this memorable occasion.
