  • Salem Planning Board approved a new hotel called Salem Waterfront Hotel & Suites at Pickering Wharf in July 1999, developed by the Rockett family.
  • After many years of legal battles with the Hawthorne Hotel over the right to build another hotel in the city and many discussions by the city councilors

and mayors about a tax deal given to the new hotel, the feud ended between the Rockett's and others on Oct. 1, 2002.

  • The Salem Waterfront Hotel & Suites, which opened in 2004, has 86 rooms, a restaurant and meeting rooms as well a swimming pool.
  • It was announced in 2011 that the hotel planned to add another hotel to the existing one, but this has been held up in court.
