PERFECTION ON PICKERING WHARF IN SALEM HARBOR

The Salem Waterfront Hotel & Suites is Salem's newest boutique hotel. With a nautical, contemporary, warm decor, the Salem Waterfront Hotel is a luxury hotel with the largest guest rooms on the North Shore of Boston. Choose from standard, single suites, or two room suites. Our meeting rooms and chandeliered ballroom make it a perfect location for any event. In fact, many travelers have found that the Salem Waterfront Hotel is a wonderful alternative to pricey Boston accommodations.

The Salem Waterfront Hotel & Suites is conveniently located at the corner of Derby Street and Congress Street, on historic Pickering Wharf, just steps away from museums, historic attractions, shopping, restaurants and all that Salem has to offer. A nearby train station and seasonal ferry service create an easy commute to downtown Boston. If arriving by boat, our marina is located adjacent to the hotel.

We are very proud that North Shore magazine selected The Salem Waterfront Hotel as winner of the BEST OF NORTH SHORE HOTEL award two years in a row. Read less

Honestly, I didn't know what to expect in planning a wedding, and three days after our wonderful day, I can not express enough thanks for the staff and venue at the Salem Waterfront Hotel. We had our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all on site, as well as about 52 rooms for our guests over the weekend. The staff was wonderful and very diligent about making sure all of our wishes were taken care of. Caitlyn Ward is hands down one of the most personable, organized day of coordinators. She took care of every detail, and the details we didn't care about, she simply gave us hints of what she would do. She was amazing. Caitlyn worked with us for an entire year, and never made us feel as if we were asking too much. Our guests all commented on the food, especially the clam chowder and the spring rolls. Kevin, our fun and fantastic bartender, took care of us not only at the Regatta Pub, but also worked our reception. The only time there was a line at the bar was during the first 15 minutes of cocktail hour, and we had some heavy drinkers at our wedding. Everyone at the front desk was pleasant and willing to help with restaurant recommendations and other sites of Salem since about 90% of our guests were from out of town. Caitlyn, Kevin, and the rest of the staff at Salem Waterfront Hotel made my husband and I feel like we were the most important people. They always remembered us through the year of planning and did everything they could to make sure our day was magical. When we were leaving on Sunday morning, Caitlyn came out to see us off, and Tim gave her a hug and told her we were going to miss her. I reiterated that sentiment and asked if we could still come up and hang out with her. She told us anytime. I would recommend Salem Waterfront to anyone looking for a great full service venue on the North Shore. Its walking distance to a ton of great sites, shopping and restaurants, but most of all they will make you feel like royalty for your big day.

The staff at the Salem Waterfront Hotel helped make our November 2015 wedding amazing!!! We worked with Caitlyn and she was excellent!! She was very attentive to our many questions, she offered great ideas, and was wonderful to work with during the planning! On the day before and the day of the wedding, she was extremely helpful and took care of everything for us! My mother and I designed and brought in most of our decorations and centerpieces, and Caitlyn and the rest of the staff were meticulous in setting everything up exactly the way we had imagined! The waitstaff at the hotel were also excellent - very professional and kind. The food was delicious - our guests talked about it long after the wedding was over! The front desk staff was helpful and our guests enjoyed having a room block at the hotel. We also had a brunch the next morning at the hotel, and the great service continued there too! We are beyond happy with how everything turned out for our wedding reception!! We highly recommend the Salem Waterfront Hotel as an excellent wedding reception venue!

We were married at the SWH on 8/29/15 and every aspect of the planning and the wedding weekend was perfect. The hotel was clean and updated with spacious guest rooms. Robyn (our coordinator) was incredible. She was our wedding expert and made sure that every detail was considered during the planning process and ensured that everything was executed perfectly. Robyn and her crew set everything up beautifully and were incredibly flexible when we wanted to make changes in the flow of our reception. Robyn also took great care of my husband and me (making sure we were happy, ate, and had drinks in hands) during the reception. The food was excellent. The hotel is in the heart of the Salem Waterfront which meant there were a ton of fun things for our out of town guests to do. Some other details that make the SWH standout include the fact that there were no other weddings on the property for our wedding weekend so we were able to start bringing centerpieces, etc. during the week and we weren't required to break the room down at all after the wedding. I would say the only semi- negative aspect of wedding planning was that our guests could not book rooms online with the group code (they had to call) and we weren't able to get enough rooms so some people had to stay elsewhere (although this is more likely related to the fact that our friends procrastinated and didn't book early enough). The outdoor ceremony area has beautiful views but it is very public. This worked well for us as it was close to the hotel and we had a short/casual ceremony but it may not be perfect for everyone. Overall I would strongly recommend the SWH for a reception and accommodations.

We were married in Topsfield but had many out of town guests - we loved Salem for our central location & the Waterfront Hotel was perfect! The rooms were updated, clean and had reasonable rates for peak season. The Bridal suite was perfect size for 8 bridesmaids, MOB & myself to get ready in - I had a hair team of 4 stylists and 2 make up artists. We hosted Welcome Drinks at the Regatta Pub (the outdoor patio was perfect for an August night), the grooms party had breakfast & watched English Premier League soccer there on the morning of the wedding. We also used the hotel for Sunday brunch which was perfect. Would highly recommend for your wedding guests to stay & other wedding weekend options!

The staff was extremely competent and cooperative. Robyn Sheather, Sales Manager, went over and above to meet my every need. We put this wedding together in 4 months and without Robyn's help we would not have been able to find some of the local vendors we needed to help make the day perfect. Robyn even found me a hairdresser to come to the hotel on the day of my wedding to do my hair when the other hairdresser couldn't make it.

I have complete confidence in giving a 5 star rating to this hotel. We made several changes to the normal wedding package. We wanted a more personalized package and they delivered.

The feedback from our guests were they were overwhelmed by the ballroom setting, cocktail hour hors d'oevres which were passed and on tables. When one platter ran out someone was there with another. Service was excellent and food was delicious.

The staff transitioned from the ceremony to the reception in record time. We had a Chuppah for the ceremony and they moved it to the ballroom, so we could have our own private seating. It was beautiful.

There are so many things to do on Pickering Wharf and you can have an outside or inside wedding at Salem Waterfront Hotel and Marina. I highly recommend this to anyone for a small to a large wedding. Go visit it and you will see what I mean.

My wife and I got married here on May 24, 2014. It was literally the best day of our lives and that had A LOT to do with how wonderful the Salem Waterfront Hotel & Marina staff were (from beginning to end). Everything went so smoothly and our guests cannot stop raving about how beautiful and classy the venue/setup was. I cannot say enough about the Sales Manager Robyn Sheather. The day before our wedding we got a last minute call from our limo company canceling our vehicles (Lynette's limo NEVER use them as they were recently shut down by the Feds). Solve It 7 did a story with us about the situation: http://www.whdh.com/story/27382047/solve-it-7-limo-refund This caused our last minute limo booking to have to end our service an hour earlier than originally planned. We were not taking our photos very far from the hotel, (but it was still far enough for two brides in poofy dresses to not want to walk). Robyn was so observant that she noticed when our limos drove away from the site of the photos. She then instructed the hotel staff to drive over to where we were taking photos and to pick us up in the hotel golf cart to bring us over to the reception. It was so sweet and our photographer caught a great photo of us driving away on the back of the cart. Do not hesitate to have your wedding here. It was worth every penny.

We had our wedding reception at the Salem Waterfront Hotel and Marina on April 27th, 2013. We started planning with Adrianna over a year in advance and she made the entire process from start to finish simple and fun. She was very professional, easy going and extremely accommodating to all of our needs, big or small. Our wedding day was perfect from check in on Friday until we left on Sunday. Kelly and the bartending team treated our guests like VIPs at the reception and at the Regatta Pub both nights. I would definitely recommend Salem Waterfront Hotel and Marina for a perfect wedding experience!
