PRLog - April 14, 2012 - SALEM, Mass. -- During the hotel’s recent bathroom renovations, the last portion of the bathroom remodel that was begun in 2011, an old pipe cracked and a major leak of fresh water--around 2,500 gallons--rushed from the top of the hotel to the Lobby level. Thanks to the resolute team at the Hawthorne Hotel, it has been business as usual during an intense construction period.
There is a light at the end of the tunnel. The following progress has been made and all rooms will be back in service by the end of April.
The Pickman room is back on Friday, April 13.
The Mezzanine only needs a final coat of paint which will happen next week.
Some of the other function rooms and public areas, while they have not been out of service, will receive a fresh coat of paint.
The Tavern repairs that need to be done are only to the ceiling, and they will have no impact on the Tavern operations.
The Hawthorne Hotel invites guests past, present and future to check for additional updates on the hotel’s website and Facebook page. They will also notice “Back and Better than Ever” discounts coming to help the hotel celebrate a job well-done by all involved.

Now, designated an “Historic Hotel of America,” the Hawthorne provides every amenity a “modern” traveler could desire and continues to welcome thousands of visitors every year. The hotel is 15 miles north of Boston and easily accessible from many major routes.
