Where should we park? The closest parking garage to the hotel is the Downtown/Museum Place Garage , just down the street from us, located at 1 New Liberty St, Salem, MA 01970 . It is a 3 minute walk from the hotel. Please note there is a fee to park because it is a city garage, and the hotel does not validate for parking. When you exit the garage, you will come down through a shopping mall. Please take the backdoor exit in the mall next to Witch Pix Costume Studio. You will then see the East India Marine Hall across the street. Please take a right out the door and that will put you on Essex Street. The Hotel Salem is located further down the street on your left across from the CVS Pharmacy. The Church Street lot (15 Federal St, Salem, MA 01970) is a 5 minute walk from the hotel.
