It's not too late to plan to come to Salem this October!
Here's a quick list of who has what (tickets, rooms, shuttle service) to get you hear for the great celebration that we call Haunted Happenings!
The Hawthorne Hotel has rooms available on October 3-7, October 17-21, and October 24-28 (Autumn is lovely in Salem whether it's a Wednesday or a Saturday, and it's much easier to get a table in our delicious restaurants mid-week!) Tickets for the Bedlam Behind Bars Halloween Ball are still available. $90 each. Call 978-744-4080 or buy tickets online at TicketWeb.com.
The Holiday Inn & Suites (Boston/North Shore on Route 1 in Peabody) has rooms available throughout the month, including Halloween weekend! (Note that they are sold out on the 2nd, 8th, 9th, 15th, 16th, 22nd, 23rd, and 30th.) They do not have a minimum length of stay, and these rooms will sell out! Ask about their complimentary shuttle service between the hotel and Salem during October. For more information call (978) 535-4600.
A short drive north in Beverly, the Wylie Inn & Conference Center has availability throughout the month. They have a 2-night minimum on the 9th, 30th, and 31st, and the Wylie Inn is sold out on the 1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th, 13th, and 18th.
A bit further north in Rockport, The Pleasant Street Inn also has vacancies throughout October. Rates at the Pleasant Street Inn range from $110 to $150 +tax (per night, double occupancy) and include breakfast. There are no minimum stay requirements.
Also in Rockport, the Emerson Inn by the Sea has a two night minimum for Saturday night stays, and they have availability throughout October (some nights only have one or two rooms left, though). The Emerson Inn has a hotel package that includes tickets and transportation to the Bedlam Behind Bars Ball at the Hawthorne Hotel on October 30!
Rockport is an easy connection to Salem via the MBTA Commuter Rail. The 30 minute ride will drop you at the Salem Depot, a 5 minute walk from the visitor center, and you will avoid traffic and parking!
