We thought you would like to see not only the review, but some photos of the wedding as well, so here they are:
From "The Knot" wedding website:
Hawthorne Hotel wedding review posted 7/16/2014I got married on Friday, June 27th, 2014, and my wedding reception was held at the Hawthorne. It was a WONDERFUL place to celebrate our marriage with our family and friends. The location of downtown Salem was great for our out-of-towners, the food was incredible, the catering manager I worked with was extremely helpful and was very detail-oriented in our meetings, and seemed to want to get to know us more with each visit.
We had a wedding coordinator for the day of the wedding that was so helpful for all five hours we were there, from when we first arrived, were introduced, throughout dinner and dancing, up until when we were leaving to retire to our wedding suite for the night. She assured us that all our gifts and things from the reception would be safe and secure, whether in our room or behind the front desk. It was a little on the pricey side, but worth every penny. And our catering manager never pushed us to add anything- she even helped us get into our budget by deducting an appetizer. I highly recommend the Hawthorne as a location for your wedding ceremony and/or reception.
I hope this is helpful to you.
