Excellent hotel very hip, slap bang in the centre of things on Essex st. All you need is within walking distance or on door step. Would stay again for sure

Amazing room lacking amenities
The hotel room was sparse but beautiful with a very comfortable bed. It has has a restaurant below and above and that seemed to be where all the staffs energy went. ( I had to ask for ice and another pillow multiple times) The coffee was located in the hallway not in the rooms. It was terribly burnt and they only offered paper cups to drink from. One morning they had a decaf and caffeinated but the next only caffeinated. I would have been happy to buy my own coffee and use my travel french press but there wasn’t a place to get hot water. ( so no tea making availability either) In order to call the front desk you had to use your own cell phone and dial the main number ( this was not written anywhere in the room) and is a problem if you only have a UK phone. There was an ironing board but no iron. Lacking were places to hang your towels after you used them and no sign advising what to do if you wanted to reused your same towels. According to their website wine glasses and a cork screw would be in the room. They were not The hotel has so much potential If they just ironed out a few things.

Hotel was in weird place. No parking have to park in garage at $30 for overnight. Probably wouldn’t stay again. Desk people were very nice. Hotel in need of some work, towel racks broke.

Lovely boutique hotel in great location
Hotel was perfectly located and close to all the sites. Please note the street is pedestrian only so you must park car in public garage a few blocks away and walk. Room was small but comfortable but a slight problem with bedding was resolved by manager Joe Keefe satisfactorily. Roof top bar is great. Love the decor. Staff very professional and friendly.

great location
Hotel is in a good location. Due to Covid, hours at rooftop bar are limited and require food purchase. The room was clean, but the bathroom could have used another 10-15 minutes to clean out some cobwebs. The hotel wasn't upfront about no parking. The website wasn't updated and still showed there was a place to drop off bags -- and this is no longer the case. Just think the welcome letter should have stated no parking is available, but xxxhere's the location.

Almost perfect
Our stay was truly very enjoyable. Bed was incredibly comfortable. Hotel is in the heart of the city within walking distance to everything. Our only complaints were some minor repairs. The toilet paper roll holder was hanging off the wall. The shower was odd; when the pressure increased, so did the temperature, which made it hard to find balance. However, all in all, we are incredibly happy with our choice to stay here and would recommend it to others.

Super friendly
Super friendly front desk -- very helpful. We had to change rooms on our 2nd night because we had 2 separate reservations -- very accommodating and made it seamless. Great location central to everything. We would definitely stay at Hotel Salem again!

Where's the HOT water??
The 1st day there staff was nice hands down. When we got to our room the floor was sticky but worse was we had no hot water in the morning to take our showers. It was 8 am and no hot water!! When we advised the front desk they could have cared less. We were offered a $30 coupon for the next stay. They should have given us a credit for $30!
