Brand new boutique hotel in historic Salem beautifully blends history, maritime style and modern-day amenities
Salem’s fascinating history comes to life in this gorgeously designed boutique hotel, which at various times has served as a private home, a tavern and a rare book store and is set to open in late November 2015 as its newest incarnation. Style-savvy travelers will swoon over Boston-based interior designer Rachel Reider’s nautical-leaning historic yet contemporary aesthetic, which is complemented by an eye-popping palette of rich, bright colors and Asian accents. All 11 guestrooms feature unique design and modern-day amenities like gas fireplaces, Apple TV and heated bathroom floors. The hotel’s interiors are full of other timeless gems. The original paneling, stunning “floating” staircases and restored wainscoting, for example, are the work of renowned 18th-century architect Samuel McIntire.
In the Area
Salem may be one of America’s most history-rich cities, but its modern-day dining scene has been exploding. The hotel is located in the historic McIntire District, so when you’ve had your fill of museums and historical tours (no visit to Salem is complete without a stop at the Salem Witch House, where the infamous trials took place, and the Salem Witch Museum), hit one of the many excellent nearby restaurants. Bambolina is known for mouthwatering wood-fired pizzas, the newly opened Opus serves excellent sushi and a creative menu of locally inspired small plates, and Finz is a locals' favorite, with a waterfront setting and consistently tasty seafood.
