We met up with our friend Ben this morning again for breakfst in Las Vegas before heading northeast for Zion National Park. It was about a 3 hour drive to Springdale where we checked into a terrific lodge themed hotel...Majestic View Lodge. Just 5 minutes away was the IMAX movie "Treasures of the Gods" about Zion and the Native American Indians. We …

... style of window that has one large one in the middle, and a smaller one on each side. This is known as Chicago style. After thanking our tour guide, who was off to do the same thing again another four times that day, we went back to Navy Pier and explored it to the very end. Windy weather whipped flags, and people's clothing, into a frenzy at the tip of the pier, not a day to be wearing a dress, that's for sure! It was getting a bit cold too, so we walked back down ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Majestic Hotel Chicago
Elegant and cozy
We had a very lovely stay at the Majestic recently. The location is wonderful, in a quiet but very friendly neighborhood, convenient to major thoroughfares and especially Wrigley Field. The public areas of the Majestic were very nice, and our suite, though small, felt larger than it was. The lack of valet parking was a negative, but we learned our lesson: you just don't need a car if you're staying here. Hotel staff was helpful and friendly...even the other guests were friendly. Skip the continental breakfast, eat at Ann Sather's on Broadway. The Majestic is a lovely hotel and we will definitely return.
The Majestic was a charming hotel and convenient location in Lakeview, but not without its issues. I'm a fan of the European boutique hotel and the ambiance fit the bill in this hotel. The room was well appointed but small - not a sticking point - but important to note for those that value space in a room. Bathroom was of normal size yet spacious with its tall ceilings. The water pressure in the shower was strong which was unexpected yet nice. Robes are a comforting touch.
Very nice hotel, Great Staff!!!
I higly recommend this hotel to everyone who travels to Chicago. Supper!!!!
The best in Chicago
I stayed at the Majestic Hotel on business in September, and never had a more incredible stay anywhere except at this hotel. The staff was so nice and knowledgeable about the area. Every employee greets you with a smile all day long, something that is missing in the hotel industry. I felt safe unlike staying downtown which is only a short distance away. The library room where breakfast is served each morning is a delight. Thank you everyone at the Majestic and I will be back.
It was a decent hotel. I went during a huge convention week and it beats staying at a Marriott or Hilton that charges $300-400/night. Rooms were okay, windows actually open which is a plus, free newspapers and coffee in the mornings, nice neighborhood, good restaurants, relatively close to the train. If you're there on a business trip, you could do a lot worse at the prices they charge ~$120/night.
Great hotel, close to Wrigley Field but away from the crowds
The Majestic is a perfect European style inn. We went up to Chicago for the primary purpose of seeing the Cubs play at Wrigley Field. The hotel is a about a ten minute walk from Wrigley but in a quiet neighborhood. It is also only a block away from Lakeshore Dr. and beautiful Lake Michigan. The room was very comfortable and the staff was very helpful in terms of reccomending restaurants and hailing cabs. Will definitely stay again.
Majestic a Nice Neighborhood Hotel
Stayed at the Majestic Hotel March 4-6. Lovely little hotel -- preferred it to the other Neighborhood Inn I stayed in, City Suites, only because the neighborhood was quieter (no EL keeping me up at night). City Suites is more convenient, though. The Majestic has clean rooms, a lovely common area, nice heavy curtains to keep the light out and a very helpful housekeeping staff. The only things in my mind to keep it from a slightly higher rating is that the parking garage is about three blocks from the hotel and the front desk staff during the day seemed very confused (I am sure I was overcharged for parking because of his confusion), although the staff at night was most informative and helpful. Overall a nice place to stay, and I would stay there again.
Not up to Par
The hotel is in a great neighborhood location. The rooms are nice but at the price charged they should be. We found the staff not very helpful (taxis not ordered, parking not explained, etc.) The continentail breakfast is not as good as ones I've had in Days Inn on the road and everything is served in styrofoam with plastic utensils - find for an overnight place on the road but not what one would expect from a hotel trying to imitate a fine english hotel.
I think there are definitely better values and I would not stay at this hotel again nor recommend it. A luxury price should equal a luxury experience rather than just an ordinary stay.
Wonderful Neighborhood Hotel
My husband and I stayed at the Majestic in August and found it a wonderful small and quiet hotel in a lovely neighborhood. Within easy walking distance to Wrigley Field and the EL and easy access to other transportation to the museums and aquarium, ect. The morning continental breakfast was quite nice and in a warm atmosphere. The one small glich was handled immediately and most satisfactorily and we will definately stay there again!
I stayed at the Majestic hotel in Chicago and I enjoyed it! The hotel lobby is very cozy and elegant. The staff is very friendly and helpful! I would higly reccommend this hotel to everyone who visits Chicago!!
