“We hosted the rehearsal dinner for our son's wedding in The Cellar at The Hotel Salem. We can't say enough good things about the entire evening... it was better than expected. The venue was fabulous, the food was delicious and Olivia, the coordinator, was amazing. Everything was perfect, we can't recommend it enough!!!! Wonderful experience.”

"We hosted the reception of our micro-wedding at The Hotel Salem on 10/16/20. Olivia Keefe and her staff were absolutely incredible throughout the entire process of planning (and replanning). Obviously the pandemic has been challenging for couples who had planned weddings during this time - Olivia and her staff made our day feel so special, from coordinating our first dance songs to leaving champagne in our upgraded suite. We couldn't be happier with our night at THS and we'll definitely be back there when we have our vow renewal next year!"

"Our micro-wedding at Hotel Salem was better than we could have ever imagined. The hotel's Events Manager, Olivia Keefe, was extremely responsive from the second we sent our first inquiry email. Since our initial wedding plans were out of the country, Olivia provided names of local vendors and options to help us make our wedding feel extra special. Thanks to the team at Hotel Salem, the room was set up the night before, and we could see it and make any changes right after we checked in. 

The Cellar has somewhat of an industrial look but is super versatile. We didn't bring in any extra decorations besides our ceremony backdrop, but the team placed lanterns and votives through the room to give it a super romantic feel. And, while the space is huge, the set-up and layout still felt intimate. Olivia met with us in the morning to go over any last-minute details from lighting to the playlist and put us both at ease. Olivia is incredible to work with; she answered all of my hundred questions, came up with creative solutions, and was super flexible when I changed my mind while also handling all of our families' questions. 

The wedding itself was perfect. The Hotel Salem team ensured everyone was safe and followed guidelines while still creating a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. The servers were super attentive and helpful, and went the extra mile to make sure everyone had what they needed. We didn't have a tasting, so we were putting a lot of trust in the chef. The food was INCREDIBLE. We had a few guests with food allergies (myself included); the team not only proactively talked to guests with allergies to make sure they knew what they could and could not eat, but, where possible, the chef made personal allergen-free apps. I'm pretty sure every single person cleared their plate when the salad and entrees came out, and the desert was unbelievable. I can't recommend Hotel Salem enough. The hotel itself is unique, in an awesome location, and has fun areas to take photos. After canceling our original wedding plans twice, Olivia and her team thought of every last detail and helped us pull off an intimate, beautiful, perfect wedding."

Our wedding day [at The Hotel Salem] was a dream come true. I knew it would be special, but it exceeded my expectations in absolutely every way!”

"I am a Principal at a local school and every year, we search for the perfect holiday party setting for our hardworking and deserving staff. Over the past few years, I’ve hosted this party in a couple of different local establishments. The Hotel Salem was new to the area, so I decided to give it a shot. It turned out to be an excellent choice as the customer service was attentive, friendly, and seemed to anticipate our needs before we even realized we had them! The Hotel Salem is a fantastic option for anybody considering hosting their events in an elegant but not outrageously expensive venue. Top-level facilities and excellent staff make for a brilliant environment within which to operate... Olivia and her team coordinated the entire event with the utmost professionalism. Highly competent and skilled, they were a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend The Hotel Salem to anyone!"

“Sue and I are absolutely delighted with the outcome of our party on The Roof last Friday evening. Our guests had a wonderful time and have since raved about the venue, the food, and the service. Because it was rather chilly and windy on Friday [the event coordinator fetched] blankets for those who hadn't dressed warmly enough, which was thoughtful and very well received and appreciated. Virtually none of the guests had been to The Roof prior to last Friday, but don't be surprised to see many of them return this summer. It's a great casual, comfortable, fun venue that is unique in this area!

I want to offer my personal thanks for Olivia's involvement in putting the party together. She did a great job going through all of the options and food and beverage packages. As soon as I met with Olivia, I knew I was making a good decision to have this party at The Roof. She was so easy to work with and accommodating of my requests. The night of the party everything came together, exactly as planned!”

"I had my wedding on the roof. All of the staff were amazing. Olivia and Joe were fantastic. If you're looking to have a unique wedding, this is the place. We had a wonderful time and Olivia truly is an asset for anyone planning a wedding. My big day could not have been more perfect thanks to all the lovely people that work there. Not to mention the food was delicious. All the guests had an awesome time and we will definitely be staying here again."

"Rainbow Fantasy was one of our favorite event experiences with a venue. The event coordinator's excitement for the event and willingness to go above and beyond to make it spectacular made this so much fun to plan! The staff were so festive and at the ready to help with anything we needed. We can’t thank them all enough for what they did to make Rainbow Fantasy a success!"
