This was such a great hotel and experience. We found it thru their website and it lived up to the description and pictures, Great room, clean, roomy pretty and well maintained. Friendly staff, and the perfect location. You can walk everywhere in Salem right from the hotel. It was our first time ever in the east coast and staying here made it so much easy and more comfortable. Thank you to everyone there.

Stayed there for an event for a weekend - it was a great experience! Close to everything, beautiful and clean, amazing service. Food was wonderful. Would highly recommend. The food at Regatta Pub is really good, and whenever there was a minor issue (a small inaccuracy on our bill was one) the staff took care of it IMMEDIATELY to our satisfaction. Definitely choose this place!

I stayed here April 1-4 (3 nights). I was in as part of the massed pipeband for the funerals of Boston heros Lt Ed Walsh and FF Mike Kennedy that were killed while battling a fire in downtown Boston the week before. So not very happy circumstances. At first I was reluctant to stay here because it is fairly far from where we had to be for the funerals BUT I was also coming from Western Canada which makes travel to Boston fairly expensive when its short notice. Although there were dozens of hotels that were reducing their rates for out of town firefighters the Salem Waterfront was providing rooms for FREE! ... I've never even heard of anyone doing that! True class.
I have no idea how many rooms they gave out but it had to be more than 20

The staff - Always great. I think we may have overwhelmed them a bit but friendly and helpful to the end. We were up at 5am every morning to be on time and 1 morning they sent us on our way with some food in our belly - again, unexpected and really appreciated
The pub - great chicken brushetta sandwich!
Rooms - always clean, lots of space, beds very comfortable

There are no negatives to this hotel... Its the best hotel in the world!

We went down to Salem for business and for a couples weekend. By the time we got to the hotel, my husband had less than 15 minutes to make his meeting. The fast and friendly check-in was greatly appreciated. Within 20 minutes of checking in, I got a call on the house line asking whether we needed anything else to make our room comfortable. What a nice way to stay in touch with one's customers! We stayed two nights and were impressed with how clean everything was - as well as how friendly and professional ALL of the staff was.

We had breakfast in the Regatta Pub on our last morning. It was decent, but nothing out of the ordinary as far as the menu. The staff was first rate - friendly and informative.

The location is great for walking around Salem. At this time of year, a lot of the shops are on their low-season schedules but having been there several other times we knew to expect this. The hotel staff was happy to recommend places that they knew were open, and made a point of letting me know what the hours were for a variety of shops and restaurants.

All in all, this is a solidly good place to stay.
