About The Merchant

Rum, pepper and a little bit of mystery… The Merchant - Steeped in Salem’s shipping port, with a dash of whimsy, our Salem, MA hotel’s name and tagline pay homage to Joshua Ward, the post-Revolutionary sea merchant and privateer who commissioned the stunning federal style building that today houses our Salem boutique hotel. 

A historic gem, located in the heart of downtown, The Merchant’s playful design and ambience pay homage to the rich history of the town, while offering guests updates in a luxurious, relaxed setting.

The Merchant, a LARK collection hotel. Lark Hotels embrace the locations they are in - but in playful, unexpected ways. Think ‘sense of place’ with imagination and a touch of mischief. As our guest, you are invited to experience modern luxury in the heart of iconic destinations. To feel the pull of a nostalgic getaway while surrounded by today’s amenities. To find attentive service when you want it and privacy when you don’t.
