17/4/12 Another lovely summer day, 28 degrees again, shorts and tshirts again. We arrived after lunch and got settled in the hotel right away. Then out for a walk around Salem. There are witchy shops and crystal shops and tarot readers and haunted houses and wax museums and pirate museums and lots more to see and do. We started with a walk to the …

... was able to get so out of hand!

The next stop was the Salem Witch Museum which turned out to be an "interactive" museum. What that meant was that we were herded through in a group. The first stop was a big dark room where various tableaus were lit up while a taped narrator with a very spooky voice gave us some information. After that we went to a room where a person showed us some displays and spoke very ...

1 part history, 2 parts camp, all parts good time! There is no doubt about it - Salem is a kitschy, campy tourist trap, but I am not ashamed to say that we thoroughly enjoyed this stop on our journey! Of course, I loved the literature come to life - getting to see the reality behind Miller's The Crucible and getting to see (we didn't pay the exorbitant tour rate to go in) The ...

... itself. As an example of the things he told us, Nathaniel Hawthorne was born Nathaniel Hathorne, but his grandfather was the judge in the Salem witch trials so he added the w into the name in an attempt to shed the reputation associated with the name.

Later we found a soup shop, The Soup Factory, which sold the most delicious lobster bisque I have ever eaten.

The Incomparable Leah B Graduates...

A travel blog entry by lrandal

... Leah during the ceremony, which ran from 9 to 11, hordes of graduates marching in but at a distance, and we never picked out our redhead, although she sent a photo of herself looking bored to her mother's phone. By 11 or so, we were dismissed and headed over to a campus theater for Phase 2, much more intimate. Leah got her moment on stage, we all cheered, and then it was over. At 1:30 we hiked up to another lawn ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Salem Waterfront Hotel & Marina

    Good value

    from

    The Salem Waterfront Hotel rooms are decorated very nicely with calming neutral tones. The rooms overall are great except for the beds. We are use to Marriott Hotels with very comfy beds. The mattress here was pretty thin and not very comfortable. The location of the hotel is very good. Great restaurants nearby (try Fins for awesome lobster ravioli). We thought the complimentary continental breakfast was good. If I could get a good rate, I would go back to this hotel.

    Great hotel but pricey

    from

    My family and i just returned from a two nite stay over halloween weekend at the Salem Waterfront and Suites. We reserved a King Suite with wet bar. It was very clean and comfortable, but like others have mentioned there is no harbor view. Also for what they charged for the one nite I have stayed at the Ritz in Philadelphia where you realize why you have paid that much for a room. This hotel is in a great location to see all the sights. I had reserved another room outside of town, and am glad I changed to here due to the convience and not having to fight traffic and parking. The breakfast is standard, but fine for something quick before sightseeing. My only problem was the price, but it was halloween weekend and in the end I think it was worth the price. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would stay again.

    Enjoyed this hotel!

    from

    My husband and I stayed in this hotel Oct 14-17 2005. The room was very nice. No complaints whatsoever. We stayed in a room with two queen beds. Bathroom was very nice as well. The hotel offers continental breakfast- bagels, muffins, cereal, apples, etc. What you would expect. The location was perfect for us. We were able to walk everywhere. We took the tour of House of Seven Gables as well as the "downtown" activities- ghost tours, Witch Museum, Witch Dungeon. All were great fun! We even walked to the commuter train to spend a day in Boston (this walk is a bit far for some but we were fine). The only down side to our trip- it rained the entire time we were in Salem!! Oh well! We just have to go back again!

    Spotless and excellent value!

    from

    My Wife and I saw a brochure for Salem in a tourist office in boston and headed to Salem to spend a day there during our holiday. It is bang in the centre of the town at the waterfront. We booked in and got a corner room on the forth floor... it was so nice that i booked us in for a second night! (Try to get a corner room as the room is bigger then the normal rooms!) The building work on the top floor for the condos as refered to in an earlier review has now finished and they are selling them now for half a mill each! They are worth it though! The rooms are spotless and the bathrooms are fantastic and very clean. Very quiet at night and very relaxing.

    Enjoyed our stay

    from

    We stayed here during the July 4th weekend (which was suprisingly quiet, even with the fireworks going on). The rooms were clean and nicely decorated, and very central to the attractions we wanted to see. As others have said, though, they aren't exactly on the water, but you're very close. Parking is also free, right outside the hotel.

    We had a late evening dinner in the hotel pub as well, which was very good if not gourmet. Breakfast was fine if you got there early enough - they don't refill the "good stuff" after the first wave passes through.

    I would stay there again.

    Comfortable and Clean

    from

    Nice, new hotel near the harbor and many of the tourist attractions. We arrived at noon for check-in and they upgraded us to a suite. The bedroom and bathroom were large and clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

    Nice Place to Stay

    from

    We stayed at the Best Western Salem Waterfront in May 2005. The hotel is very new, clean, comfortable, and within walking distance to all the Salem tourist attractions. The hotel name is a bit misleading because it is not on the water nor could we see the water from our second floor room. The down side is that while there is a vending machine for candy, there are no vending machines in the hotel for soda pop. If you want a soda to drink, you have to go to the bar and get one and take to your room -- a little inconvenient. Also, the free continental breakfast was nothing more than coffee and tea -- a disappointment. But if you're in Salem for a good night's sleep and proximity to attractions, it is a nice hotel at which to stay.

    Just what Salem needed!

    from

    A terrific hotel located centrally for discovering the sights of Salem. When we stayed the only down side was the noise from maintenance work every morning at 8am whcih is early if you are on vacation. Nice staff and lovely rooms.

    Harbour front happiness!

    from

    Having just returned from a 2 night stay at the Waterfront Hotel & Suites, I thought thet some of you may find this review useful. The hotel only opened toward the end of last year and I understand that there is not much information about it.

    Overall great hotel; two major problems

    from

    This hotel is so new that it isn't even listed in the phone book. I found it by accident in the middle of a snowstorm by asking at a local Dunkin Donuts about available lodging in the area, and a customer spoke up and said, "They just built a new hotel down the street." Having been caught in a rat motel once or twice when bad weather his during my business travel, I was thrilled to find this hotel. It was new, clean, and comfortable. The windows open for fresh air. The beds are comfortable, and include four pillows and a real comforter -- a nice touch. It has internet access. Only two things are cause for concern: First, I asked for a quiet room, so they put me on the 4th floor. Unfortunately, the 5th floor consists of privately owned condos, and they started making lots of construction noise at 7:00 a.m. Warning to other guests: If you want a quiet room, don't let them put you on the 4th floor! Otherwise, the hotel does seem fairly quiet. Second, the breakfast leaves much to be desired. They really need to work on it -- the low quality of the food doesn't fit with the rest of what the hotel has to offer. Overall, though, I was very happy to find this hotel and would stay there again: snowstorm or not. :-)
