Our Day for Announcements

Another Accolade for the Hawthorne Hotel Team

Today we received notification that WeddingWire, a leading wedding technology company, announced that the Hawthorne Hotel has been selected to receive the prestigious annual WeddingWire Bride’s Choice Awards™ 2011 for Hotels.

Recognition for the Bride’s Choice Awards™ 2011 is determined by recent reviews and surveys from over 750,000 WeddingWire newlyweds.

According to WeddingWire, the Hawthorne Hotel ranked among the top five percent of wedding professionals in the WeddingWire community, representing quality and service excellence within the wedding industry.

We would like to thank our past clients for nominating us to receive the Bride’s Choice Awards™ 2011.

Salem Chamber of Commerce

Today the Salem Chamber of Commerce confirmed the election of me, Juli Lederhaus, General Manager of the Hawthorne Hotel, as the new President of the Salem Chamber of Commerce for 2011.
This is not a first for me; I was President of the Salem Chamber in 2006.  The President is usually elected as part of a succession plan, but the plan for this year came up with a bit of a hole when someone in line for the position suddenly left the area.  I agreed to step in when approached by the Executive Director, Rinus Ooshoek.

This year the focus of the Salem Chamber will be on "Local, Mobile and Social," so stay tuned!  If you are a business person in Salem, and not already a member of the Salem Chamber, now would be a perfect time to join.

As always, I hope to see you here in Salem, and at the historic Hawthorne Hotel.

  1. Congratulations, Juli! I have no doubt that the Chamber of Commerce is going to be quite pleased that you stepped up when the other person stepped down. I anticipate a great year for both you and the Chamber!
