The Hawthorne Hotel has been an integral part of the city of Salem and Boston’s North Shore since its completion in 1925. The beautifully restored, stately Federal-style hotel is named for author Nathaniel Hawthorne, who spent his childhood in Salem and returned in 1846 to serve for three years as Surveyor of the Port at the Custom House. In 1849, Hawthorne wrote The Scarlet Letter at his home in Salem. Located in the Salem Common Historic District, the hotel is within walking distance to numerous historic sites and attractions.
