A Deal a Week: The Hawthorne Hotel’s Insider’s Package
I don’t consider myself a “witch,” but I do consider myself a North Shore insider when it comes to Salem, Massachusetts. The Hawthorne Hotel, a member of Historic Hotels of America, wants you to give me some competition in the Salem “know-it-all” category. To act like a local, their new “Insider’s Package” supplies you with all the right tools: a place to stay, a roll of quarters so you can play skeeball and all the old-time games at the Salem Willows Arcade, tickets to CinemaSalem, and the Salem Insider’s Guide Book and Map, published by the Hawthorne Hotel itself and written by its staff, with local gems from beaches and shops to landmarks, restaurants and other attractions. Maps are included, too. This “mystical” package starts at only $161 for one night, based on double occupancy, and is offered year-round. Book way ahead for Halloween as the Salem Witch Museum, Witch House, and other witchy haunts are extremely popular.
