October in Salem

Where should you stay in Salem for Halloween? The historic Hawthorne Hotel, of course!

October 2022

Although we are currently sold out weekends in October of this year, there is availability during the week including all Sundays, Wednesday, October 26 and Thursday, October 27, 2022. The best way to check availability and book a room for October 2022 is to call and speak with a member of our Front Desk team at 978-744-4080.

The Hawthorne Hotel Halloween Costume Ball will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2022. Tickets are available via eventbrite.com. Just follow this link for complete details and to purchase tickets. This is a 21+ event hosted by the Hawthorne team.

Other Halloween-related events take place at the Hawthorne in October but are managed by individual event organizers, not the Hawthorne. Tickets for events other than the October 29th Hawthorne-run ball must be purchased through the event organizer.

October 2023

Rooms and rates for next October are not currently displayed on our website as we do not book stays more than one year in advance. There is a very high demand for weekends in October and we offer returning guests the opportunity to re-book before making the rooms available to new guests. Don’t let the demand for rooms deter you! If you are able to visit during the week, you will find greater room availability and shorter wait times at popular attractions.

˜Two-Night Minimum + Deposit on Weekends

There is a two night minimum for weekend stays (Friday + Saturday or Saturday + Sunday) in October. During the week, however, we welcome guests who may be looking for a shorter visit. A non-refundable deposit representing one night of your stay is required for all reservations that include a Saturday night in October. Should you need to cancel your reservation, this deposit will be forfeited and kept by the Hawthorne Hotel as a cancellation fee.

If you wish to book a weekend in October 2023, rooms will be available to the general public every Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. following the weekend noted in this informational chart by calling the Front Desk at 978-744-4080.

˜Returning October Weekend Guests

Guests who are staying at the Hawthorne on a weekend in October 2022 are given the opportunity to book for 2023 while they are here. However, this is not a guarantee of room availability, only an option that they are allowed to exercise if the room they desire is available.
