The Hawthorne Hotel is proud to be able to gently direct your attention to understanding other nations just once in a while.  Our "flags of the week" program is meant to do just that.  We fly a different *country's flag every day on the front of the hotel (weather and safety issues are always considered before we go out to change them), as well as a different state each day, just so we don't forget about the differences within our own borders.

If you have a special request, please call us at 978-825-4322 or 4444.

I hope to see you here.


*Countries of the United Nations
