This Valentine’s Day, why not escape to the historic streets of the witch city? According to Northshore Magazine, two of Salem’s very own were named in their six romantic picks. Hats off to The Hawthorne Hotel and The Merchant Inn!
According to their bios in the article:
The Hawthorne Hotel
18 Washington Square W, Salem, 978-744-4080, hawthornehotel.com
A Salem landmark since 1925, this timeless and iconic hotel boasts 93 rooms, each revealing its distinct and elegant historic character. Located in the heart of downtown Salem, this tastefully decorated boutique style hotel has hosted such well-known personalities as Walter Cronkite, Bette Davis, Colin Powell, former president George Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush.
The Merchant Inn
148 Washington St., Salem, 978-745-8100, themerchantsalem.com
“Rum, pepper, and a little bit of mystery.” Located in the heart of downtown Salem, this boutique hotel’s name and tagline pays homage to Joshua Ward, the post-Revolutionary War sea merchant and privateer who commissioned the stunning federal style building that houses the hotel today. The Merchant offers large, luxurious guest rooms retaining much of the original woodwork, while offering such modern-day amenities as heated bathroom floors, gas fireplaces, USB outlets, and smart TVs.
So book early and enjoy some of Salem’s best. <3
