Laying New Carpet in the Library

This week a number of people came into the hotel exclaiming about all the carpet that they saw being readied in our parking lot.  We were happy to inform those curious folk that the Library was getting new carpet.

Here are a couple "before" photos:





In case you were not among those people who happened by while this work was in progress, we thought you might be interested to see these photos.

Here are some photos of the process and the final result:





 I hope to see you here.

History in the Grand Ballroom -- The Dance School

Ever since I arrived at the Hawthorne Hotel over 14 years ago, I have heard stories about the "dance school" that was held here in the Hawthorne Hotel many years ago.  Having heard over and over again about "Miss Harriet James" Dance School but having absolutely no photos of that activity, I made it my mission to ask everyone who shared that or a similar story with me if they had any photos.

This year my quest was finally successful, and  I was able to obtain some scans of photos of that particular activity.  These photos were provided thanks to Michael Stafford, who was dining with some of his family members at the hotel earlier this year.  I happened to chat with them at their table and the conversation turned to the dancing school.  I asked my question and was so pleased when the answer was "yes", I do!  I could not wait to see them.

Some days later Michael brought several pages of photos to me to scan.  These images are so darling, I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as we did.

We all love seeing the children all dressed up, complete with gloves on the girls.  We especially enjoy seeing the hotel in the background of these photos, where you can see, for example, the hard-surface floor in the Grand Ballroom, the covered-over Palladium windows (to try to make it look modern), and the "cool" Hawthorne Hotel logo on the podium in the final photo.

Michael provided me with quite a few names, but if you know any of the unidentified people in these photos and can help with identifying them, that would be super!

I love seeing the painting in the background of these Ballroom photo above and below.  I believe this is the painting that is now located in the Lobby between the Ballroom and the Tavern doors.

The repertoire includes a variety of chanteys and songs that reflect the rich maritime heritage of New Bedford, and the region. Sea Chanteys were traditionally sung as work songs on board sailing ships both as a way to pass the time and as a means of helping establish a rhythm for various types of work aboard the ship.
As a sampler of musical traditions connected to New Bedford Harbor and the New England seafarer, their performances feature the chanteys of the Yankee sailor, along with the ballads and ditties of global mariners and coastwise fisherfolk in North America, the Cape Verde Islands, and the British Isles.

FAQs about our Flag Program

Q.  Why do we have a "flag program" here at the Hawthorne Hotel?

A.  Our owner instituted this program as a way to encourage anyone who comes in contact with us here in Salem, or at our hotel, to think more globally, rather than parochially, about the world we live in.  He believes that the world would be better off if we all thought about the fact that there are other places, other cultures, to understand and appreciate.

Q.  How long has this program been in existence?

A.  While I do not have the exact date it was started, I know that it was fully operational when I arrived at the Hawthorne Hotel as General Manager in the Spring of 1999, so likely at least since 1998 and possibly longer.

Q.  Where are the flags flown?

A.  The country flag flies to the right of the front door as you face the hotel, and the state flag flies on the left.
Q.  How are the flags chosen?

A.  The Hawthorne Hotel owns all of the flags of the member nations of the United Nations, so we fly those flags for the "country" flag, in alphabetical order.  The hotel also owns all of the flags of the states and related protected entities of the United States, and those are also flown in alphabetical order.

Q.  Are there any exceptions to which flags are flown on a particular day?

A.  Yes, we take special requests from guests who will be staying in the hotel, having a function in the hotel, from our staff members, and even from people in the community.  If someone calls us with even a mildly compelling request, we generally honor that request, on a first-call basis.

Q.  What about "Old Glory" -- the flag of the United States of America?

A.  That flag is always flying on the roof of the Hawthorne Hotel.   One day a woman marched into my office and gave me a huge piece of her mind along the lines of how dare we fly the flag of XXX country instead of the flag of the USA.  She ranted on and on for a few minutes before I could interrupt her to tell her that the flag of the USA was the largest flag we own, and was clearly flying on the roof of the hotel.  She quickly mumbled "never mind" and walked out of my office as quickly as she had walked in.

Q.  Does the program ever create controversy over the flag(s) that are flying?

A.  We have had coincidences of flying flags in our normal alphabetical order, when a flag of a country with which the US had previously been at war, and was now in peace with, was flying on a particularly historic date.  For example, one year on December 7, we were flying the flag of Japan.  We got a few phone calls that day scolding us for our recognizing that country on the anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day.

Q.  What kinds of good things have happened that you can share?

A.  In addition to having our guests happily surprised and delighted because we have honored their special requests, we have also had some nice "happy coincidences" where we have inadvertently been flying the flag of a country when we have been visited by a particular group of people who are from that country, and they just happened by.  Many photographs have been taken in the front of the Hawthorne Hotel with a special flag.

Q.  If I want to request a particular flag or flags be flown, how do I go about making that request?

A.  Please call us at 978-825-4444 or 978-825-4322.  If you reach our voicemail, leave us a message with the details of your request and we will make every effort to honor your request.  Remember we can only fly the flags we have, which are all the flags of the member nations of the UN, and the flags related to the United States of America (states, territories, protectorates, etc.)


We hope to see you here!

June Part-Time Employee of the Month

The Hawthorne Hotel is so proud of all of its staff members.  Here is yet another one who was honored by all of the managers yesterday, as he was awarded the Part-Time Employee of the Month Award for June, 2013.  Jonathan "Jon" H is a long-term member of our banquet team, usually working as a Banquet Captain, the person on the floor and in charge of the service for a particular event.

We walked in to the Grand Ballroom as the team was setting up for the wedding reception held last night.  Liz was able to "persuade" Jon not to head back in to the kitchen as we descended on his work space.

Once he got over the initial shock, he seemed very pleased to be on the receiving end of a bunch of goodies, and to see all of his co-workers and the managers of the hotel who gathered round to honor him.



Here is Banquet Manager, Liz Dube, sharing her observations of Jon and his work, and why she nominated him for this award.



Congratulations, Jonathan, and THANK YOU for all your terrific work on the behalf of the guests of the Hawthorne Hotel!

I hope you will join me in wishing Jon well!

Pillows of the Hawthorne Hotel

Many of our guests have come to us saying how much they LOVE our new pillows on our guest room beds, and have asked us where they can buy them?  We have had so many requests that we have decided to make them available for sale in our Hawthorne Hotel "Gift Shop".

 Here are some detailed photos of the pillows, which you can see are the "ultimate in synthetic down" which means they are hypo-allergenic as well as super comfortable.




The pillows are available at the Front Desk, as are all our "Gift Shop" items, for only $20 each plus tax.  If you need them to be shipped to you, that is possible, but shipping would be extra, and may be a little pricey because things like that go by "cubes" which makes the shipping costs higher than you would think for something that light.

I hope you enjoy the fact that we now have our wonderful pillows available for you.

CinemaSalem Rocks!

If you have read this blog before you will already know how much we love our local movie theater. Now there are even more reasons to love it.  Besides the real butter popcorn, great selection of hot tea, Fresca, and yummy snacks, the theater is now all digital, with an updated sound system.

Here is the weekly newsletter for the CinemaSalem fabulous movie theater here in Salem, MA.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


It's official: you've voted CinemaSalem to its fifth consecutive Best North Shore Movie Theater award! Thanks so much for this sign of support, as well as your regular attendance. We are consistently working to improve your film-going experience, and we appreciate your vote of confidence!

We've got two great movies opening on Friday, so let's get right to the showtimes!
Opening Friday: The Way, Way Back (PG13); Maniac (NR): Turbo (PG); Grown Ups 2 (PG13); The Spirit of Salem 3D; This Perfect Place; and The True 1692 in 3D!.

One of the CinemaSalem audience's sweet spots is films like The Way, Way Back, quirky, authentic, real-life comedies with profound themes. The Philadelphia Inquirer calls it "a sly, richly modulated, emotionally engaging, and brutally honest film". Rolling Stone: "The Way Way Back gets it wittily, thrillingly right. It turns the familiar into something bracingly fresh and funny. It makes you laugh, then breaks your heart." San Francisco Chronicle: "You don't see too many movies about the importance of fathers, and they're rarely done this well." USA Today: "With its subtle wit, engaging story, topnotch ensemble cast and sparkling dialogue, it's this summer's Little Miss Sunshine."

TWWB will screen on Friday and Saturday at (11:45 AM), (1:45), (4:30), 7:00 and 9:15; and Sunday-Thursday at (11:45 AM), (1:45), (4:30) and 7:00.

Opening in the Screening Room is your opportunity to see one of the best horror films of the year, Maniac, starring Frodo Baggins, aka Elijah Wood, as a sociopath. Examiner: "Thrilling and fueled by plenty of bloody carnage, Maniac is a horror film that knows how to wear its influences on its sleeve and capitalize on them." KPBS: "[Director Franck] Khalfoun gives us an unflinchingly brutal film that places the viewer in the role of accomplice with disturbingly effective results." ScreenRant: "For some, Maniac will be disorienting and sickening; for others, it will be a deliciously twisted experience."

Maniac will screen on Friday and Saturday at (12:15), (2:45), (4:45), 7:30 and 9:30; and Sunday-Thursday at (12:15), (2:45), (4:45) and 7:30.
Turbo is winning over everyone, and here is an assortment of short-but-sweet critical raves: Chicago Sun-Times: "Great voice talent in a story that puts the "go" in escargot." LA Times: "Honestly, they pretty much had me at 'racing snails.'" Seattle Times: "Ultimately, Turbo nicely lives up to its diminutive hero's credo of, "No dream is too big, and no dreamer too small" - a pleasant thought, for people of all sizes." Newsday: "Turbo has just enough heart to make it to the winner's circle." Film.com: "An easy recommendation, well-considered and well-executed, a treat for anyone who likes comedy or ambitious takes on make-believe worlds."
The lovable Turbo will screen in 2D on Friday and Saturday at (2:00), (4:15), 6:30 and 8:45; and Sunday-Thursday at (2:00), (4:15) and 6:30. If you like 3D, you can catch a screening every day, Friday through Thursday, at (11:30).

We're holding over Grown Ups 2 for another week, screening on Friday and Saturday at (12:00), (2:30), (4:50), 7:10 and 9:40; and Sunday-Thursday at (12:00), (2:30), (4:50) and 7:10.
If you're interested in Salem history, you can check out The Spirit of Salem, which will play every day at 11:00 am.

This Perfect Place: A Natural History of the Massachusetts North Shore, featuring Kristina Lindborg, will screen every day at noon, and The True 1692 will screen every day at 2:00 and 6:30.

Don't forget that we're going to devote an entire week in the Screening Room to these home-grown mini-masterpieces starting August 9! The week-long, all-day engagement will feature special pricing.

As always, thanks for supporting CinemaSalem!

It is so nice to see our various team members recognized for what they do for our guests -- from providing top-notch friendly service, to fantastic food and incredibly clean rooms and well-maintained surroundings.

I hope to see you here.,

 In this photo above you see Lucie Ogeron telling Leah all the reasons that she nominated her for this award, including her steadfast dedication to our guests comfort and well-being, her amazing hospitality skills and her ability to dot every "i" and cross every "t" no matter the business levels that confront her..


 And in this photo above, Andy Seidel, our new Front Office Supervisor, also echoed Lucie's thoughts and added some of his own in speaking about how much Leah has contributed to our team.
