Hawthorne Hotel


Since its completion in 1925, the Hawthorne Hotel has played a crucial role in Salem and the North Shore of Boston. Author Nathaniel Hawthorne, who spent his formative years in Salem and returned in 1846 to work for three years as Surveyor of the Port at the Custom House, is honored by the name of this elegantly restored, magnificent Federal-style hotel. Hawthorne authored The Scarlet Letter in 1849 at his Salem home. The hotel is close to many historic sights and attractions because it is situated in the Salem Common Historic District.
