I recently had a room block here for my nearby wedding and they were very easy to work with! Very pleased with the service we were given. I often emailed with questions and every time my Sales Consultant, Caitlyn, replied in a timely and pleasant manner. Great customer service here! All our of our out of town guests enjoyed their stay. We had also toured the hotel as a possible wedding venue, and although we decided to go with another venue, the SWH was willing to work with us on price, which is very appreciated and not often experienced when wedding venue shopping in the area. I'm sure a wedding here would have been lovely as well.

We love this place! It was a really nice place for our guests to stay to be close to our wedding venue. Having the pub downstairs was perfect for gathering everyone together the night before the wedding. I booked the biggest suite they had for myself. It was the perfect place to get ready with all my girls and my hair and makeup team, and it was perfect later for my new hubby and I!
Everyone from the front desk clerks, to the bartender at the pub, and the concierge were so nice and accommodating. They took care of some last minute details that I had overlooked in my wedding planning haze, like meals for the day of! I had breakfast sent up and later we had champagne and mimosas with sandwiches sent up for the girls and I when we were getting glammed up. Ryan was so helpful especially. My hairdresser needed some taller chairs brought up so she could have us at a better height and Ryan brought them right up. We had an excellent experience here!

My Wife and I got married at the Salem Waterfront Hotel August 12, 2017, and everything was just perfect.

We started planning two years in advance and had the pleasure to work with Robyn Sheather, Caitlyn Ward, and Rose O'Malley; all three wedding specialist are great, experienced and professional.

Rose O'Malley was our coordinator, she put our minds at ease even after last minute changes and she made sure everything went exactly as planned for our big day.

We loved the food, and we still getting great compliments from some of our guests about it, specially the passed hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour.

The Platinum Package was priced reasonably, and the hotel was very flexible with a few special requests we had for our big day, specially Linda O'Shea.

Bridal suite was spectacular specially after turn down service ;-)

The entire staff at the hotel was great and we highly recommend this as you wedding venue.

I cannot say enough good things about Salem Waterfront Hotel. Our wedding this past weekend was the best day EVER and it was all thanks to Caitlyn and everyone else at the hotel.

First, they were so easy to work with, very responsive and flexible. They made sure we got exactly what we wanted and adapted their packages to fit our wishes. Not to mention, they did so at a great price we were comfortable with. The planning and tasting could not have been smoother.

When the weekend arrived, we had our rehearsal and rehearsal dinner on Friday at the hotel in the Regatta Pub. The food was so delicious (italian buffet), the bartenders and waitstaff were friendly, fun, and excited for us. Everyone complimented this welcome event.

On the day of the wedding, Caitlyn was there for me, my husband, the bridal party, and our family every step of the way - we didn't have to worry about a thing. The hotel rooms were beautiful and spacious for us to get ready in and the room service was awesome. The ceremony went off without a hitch and afterward my husband and I had time to relax in the pub and Caitlyn delivered us our own tray of appetizers (scallops wrapped in bacon were out of this world) and drinks so we could regroup for the reception. When we walked into the reception I was SO happy with the way they set up all the decor and made everything look exactly as I had imagined and wanted. Lastly, the food was AMAZING. We went with the filet and baked haddock and everyone gave compliments on how it turned out.

It truly was the best day and I am so happy we chose to have our wedding at the Salem Waterfront Hotel. Thank you so much again to Caitlyn and all the staff at the hotel and in the Pub. We can't wait to come back for our anniversary!
