The Hawthorne Hotel will celebrate Halloween New Orleans’ style

Mardi Gras Masquerade at the Hawthorne Hotel In the tradition of New Orleans, complete with decadent food, outrageous costumes and a night of “Laissez les bon temps rouler,” the Mardi Gras Masquerade Halloween Party at the Hawthorne Hotel is bigger and better than ever before.

Popular local band, The Ward Eights, debuts as the party’s entertainment in the Grand Ballroom. There will be Halloween-themed food and drinks, and fun giveaways. The hotel is also offering cash and prizes, including a trip to New Orleans, to those whose costumes are the best in the Individual, Group and Best of Theme categories. During the month of October, the Hawthorne Hotel will be highlighting Halloween trivia, photos from past parties, and surprising the over 9,000 Friends with party ticket giveaways and more on Facebook.

Approximately 1,000 guests make their way through the hotel that night so tickets are going fast. To get them, go to or call 978-744-4080! The Halloween room packages are sold out at the Hawthorne Hotel but other hotels in the area do have availability. A list of these hotels, as well as a FAQ fact sheet will be coming out within the next few weeks.

The Hawthorne Hotel was built by the residents of Salem in 1925. Over one thousand people in the area purchased stock in order to create a “modern” hotel. 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.

Historic Hotels of America is a program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Historic Hotels has identified 191 hotels that have faithfully maintained their historic integrity, architecture and ambiance. To be selected for this prestigious program, a hotel must be at least 50 years old, listed in or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places or recognized as having historic significance.
