The Merchant

148 Washington St. | Salem, MA 01970



The Merchant is set in the heart of Salem’s central historic district. All of Salem’s sights, sounds and tastes — sailing, witch trial sites, night life, restaurants, historical attractions — are all only a short stroll away. In fact, our newly renovated boutique hotel is merely three blocks from Salem Harbor and a 5 to 10 minute walk to the House of the Seven Gables, The Salem Witch Museum, and the world renowned Peabody Essex Museum.


We look forward to welcoming you to The Merchant and helping you to explore the best of Salem.
