Right in the Thick of It
This was a great hotel. Everything was very new and remodeled. Flat Screen TVs. Polite Staff. Breakfast. Fitness Room. It is also in the heart of the Loop. We walked to the boat tours, a blues club, deep dish pizza, Near North, and all the famous buildings. The only time we needed to use the L was to get to Wrigley for a game and there was a station around the corner. If you are a tourist looking for a clean, modern, centrally located hotel in the Loop, this is a fine choice.
Great Hotel and Great Location
I found the Hampton at the last minute when other plans fell through and I was very pleased with it. It is has recently been redecorated and refurbished. The rooms are immaculate, modern, attractive and comfortable. The bathroom is above average with stone tiling, a beautiful tub/shower with good water pressure. The hotel soaps were not great, but other than that they give you a beauty kit, a shoe cloth, mouthwash, shampoo, conditioner and lotion. There is a hair dryer and coffee maker.
They also provide you with an ironing board and an iron.
The service was excellent. If I ever needed anything it was taken care of very quickly and in an extremely friendly manner. The people who work there seem to genuinely care about the guests and doing their job well.
There is no restaurant in the hotel, but there is room service and a free breakfast in the morning in the lobby on the 4th floor.
There is also a nice fitness room and when I arrived they were in the process of installing a computer center. They also provide a laundry service.
I loved how convenient it was to the museum, millenium park, theater, the train, shops, the post office - everything really.
Although I saw a lot of business travelers, there were a wide variety of people staying at the Hampton.
Tall, dark and lovely!
My April stay at the Hampton Inn Majestic was excellent. The biggest complaint I have is that room service didn't make it once (I was there for 7 nights) when I left my room late and came back about 4 hours later.
The rooms are tastefully decorated, in a contemporary style with deep rich browns and reds. If you look at the hotel pictures, that's exactly what the rooms look like. They offer complimentary high speed internet and breakfast (though I never took advantage of it). It is right next to the La Salle Theater, and you have to ride the elevator to the 4th floor lobby, access to the rooms is from the 6th floor and you have to use your keycard to activate the elevator.
It is at the corner of State & Monroe; about a 3 block walk to Millenium Park, 4-5 blocks to Wacker Dr. There are a few good stores on State--2 blocks up or down from Monroe. I haven't quite found my bearings in Chicago, so I can't give you the N, S, E, W coordinates.
My wife and I stayed here one night after booking a stay through the "choose Chicago website." The AARP discount was worth an extra $10, but I still thought the room a bit pricy at $161 a night. It seems that Chicago rooms are going up in price as the windy city gains popularity as a destination spot.
The good: High definition TV in each room. Very comfortable beds. Very friendly and courteous staff. Room was very clean and more like an upscale apartment flat than a hotel, I thought.
The bad: For those who prefer their showers steamy hot, the water was not quite that. Also, the immediate vicinity does not boast a variety of restaurants, which I found disconcerting. It's about a four-block walk to the other side of the river and the Magnificent Mile with its trendy diners and shops. The public areas of the hotels are not roomy. The elevators in particular are quite small.
By the way, besides the high definition TV, the rooms we stayed in also contained several "high definition" mirrors. So if you want to know whether you should go on that diet, or whether you really look that old, this is the place to find out.
Stayed for one night. Location is right in the Loop - just round the corner from Blue Line Monroe stop so ideal for travelling to/from ORD. Doormen really friendly, rooms nicely decorated.
Only problems are the elevators - very small and very slow - check-in is on the 4th floor, which isn't particularly a problem but with only 2 elevators it means only 1 is running up and down the 20? floors. Had to wait 8 and 10 minutes on occasions, and other guests were also mentioning this. Wifi is free and so is breakfast. New 42" LCD TVs in all rooms.
Un hôtel charmant
J'y ai passé une nuit. Il est vraiment situé au coeur du Loop - juste au coin de la station Monroe sur la ligne bleue, donc il est idéal pour aller à O'Hare ou en revenir. Les grooms sont très gentils, les chambres sont bien décorées.
Seuls les ascenseurs posent problème - tout petits et très lents. Le check-in est au 4e étage, ce qui n'est pas vraiment un problème mais s'il n'y a que deux ascenseurs cela signifie qu'il n'y en a qu'un à la fois qui monte et descend les 20 étages. Nous avons parfois attendu 8 à 10 minutes, et d'autres clients en parlaient. L'accès internet en Wi-fi et le petit déjeuner sont gratuits. Il y a des écrans LCD 42 pouces dans chaque chambre.
Nous venons de faire un séjour au Hampton Inn Majestic. Et c'était génial. Le personnel était aimable et serviable. Nous étions 7 dans 2 chambres Queen et 1 chambre King. Nous n'avons pas eu à nous plaindre de la taille des chambres. Il n'y avait pas une place folle pour courir mais nous n'étions pas là pour rester dans nos chambres. Les lits étaient super confortables. Les chambres de l'hôtel venaient d'être rénovées, les meubles étaient modernes, il y avait un téléviseur à écran plat au mur et de nombreuses serviettes dans les salles de bains. Le petit déjeuner était bon, il n'y avait ni oeufs ni bacon mais c'était un TRES BON petit déjeuner: des viennoiseries chaudes, du pain grillé, etc. - plein de choix.
J'y séjournerais volontiers encore. Il n'y avait pas de centre d'affaires avec ordinateur, fax, etc., mais c'était le seul inconvénient. Il y a internet en Wi-fi dans les chambres.
Great place to stay!
We just stayed in the Hampton Inn Majestic. Had a great experience. Staff was friendly & helpful. There were 7 of us - 2 queen rooms & 1 King. We had no complaints about the size of the rooms. There wasn't a lot of room to run around in the room but we were not there to hang out in the room. Great comfy beds. The hotel rooms have been recently been renovated & have modern furniture & flat panel TVs on the wall. Lots of towels in the bathrooms. Breakfast was good not eggs & bacon but VERY NICE continental breakfast. Warm pastries, french toast, etc - great variety. Would stay there again. Only drawback - no business center w/ computer, fax machine, etc. Hotel DOES have free wireless in rooms.
Everyone has his or her own idea of what makes a hotel a neat place to stay. In my opinion, a smaller boutique hotel is better than a huge luxury hotel, location is very important, well cared for properties are always preferable, and service is critical: by that, I mean discreet service that is available and responsive, not pushy service that hovers around like a family pet.
This place was great by any measure, but especially based on the above criteria. It is on Monroe, steps from State Street, in the theater district in the heart of the loop. That made it a perfect departure point for our frequent jaunts around downtown. It was easy to get to from the train station, and the size made it simple to slip in and out.
The hotel is a historical building that was renovated just this past year. For that reason, the furnishings are new and all the accomodations are modern. The decor was very chic, if you appreciate that sort of thing. The room had wireless internet service and a flat panel television. The staff is unerringly friendly and impressively helpful. I could continue gushing effusively, but this treacly review is even making me kind of sick. The Hampton Majestic is fun. We are greatly anticipating our next stay here, the sooner the better.
This hotel was amazing! I have never had such service...The hotel had opened only three days before we arrived, so we were a little apprehensive. No need, though - the service was excellent, the rooms gorgeous and modern. The hotel staff was considerate and helpful, going beyond the call of duty - even calling ahead to the restaurant we were visiting! I have traveled extensively and had never felt so taken care of. I would definiely recommend this hotel to business persons, tourists or theatre people!

Our walk continued to the Willis Tower, the Civic Opera house, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and the Chicago Board of Trade. All amazing buildings. We also saw the beginning of Historic Route 66; a block over the end of historic Route 66. And then I found Michigan Ave. When in Chicago ...
