    Historical Traveler Reviews Majestic Hotel Chicago

    Elegant and cozy

    from

    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.

    Good and not so good

    from

    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.

    What was an issue was the radiator banging and clanging intermittently during the night - it scared me initially (not knowing what it was), but found it an annoyance when trying to sleep. In addition to this noise, the walls are rather thin, so you can hear conversations and noises in adjoining rooms: I was awakened by a young child and parents at 6 a.m., who were starting their day, and could clearly hear their conversation in the next room. I put a pillow over my head. Not a very restful sleep at this hotel.

    The continental breakfast is so-so. Lovely parlor for such a thing but I reiterate the comments that have been made on this site - paper plates and cups undercut presentation and the pastries and croissants tasted day old. This is a shame really as this upgrade would let the hotel put its best foot forward and make stylishly nicer.

    I would consider coming back - in a suite to avoid ambient noise - but would most likely look for another place to stay when in Chicago.

    Smart choise

    Very nice hotel, Great Staff!!!

    I higly recommend this hotel to everyone who travels to Chicago. Supper!!!!

    The best in Chicago

    from

    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.

    Was decent

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    Elegant hotel!!

    from

    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!!

    ... well, consider putting all your boat tours on the same tour as they mostly leave from the Navy Pier, saving you travel time. In fact, I suggest you spend a full day at the pier to avoid battling crowds more than once.

    After the cruise, we set off in search of food, deciding on hot dogs from American Hot Dogs, one of the best voted dogs in the city. While appearances aren't the best, tasty dogs indeed and you can tell from the line, it's probably ...

    Sooo, here's to another long trans-continental flight. We leave Chicago on Monday, July 21st at 10:15pm and arrive in Kilimanjaro, Tanzania on Wednesday, July 23rd at 1:10am (thank you international date line). It's almost all in-the-air time, as we only have a one hour lay-over in Istanbul, Turkey. Can you say "run through the airport!" The flight leg from Chicago to Istanbul is 11 hours (hopefully we'll be asleep ...

    ... a private room for a lower price. Perfect! As it was forth of July we were obliged to go out and see the fireworks even though we were completely knackered! We unpacked and put on our fancy dresses and set out to navy Pier which is what we have heard is the best place to enjoy Fourth of July. Well, we get there, at 8.30 when the fireworks start at 9.30 and it's completely jam packed, we couldn't get closer than the start of the pier, so we settle for our place near a tree. And wait, ...

    ... the waiters to stop the clock, go back to the savoury courses as I wasn't anywhere near sated. In fact if this was the bedroom, then one of us was displaying very bad manners and it certainly wasn't me.

    It brought to mind the comment from Graham's hairdresser regarding dining at Tetsuyas: she wanted to stop off for a hamburger on the way home. While I wouldn't go that far, I came closer to understanding how she felt.
