Old Theatre with very ornate features. For best sound and view you have to be on the first floor (orchestra) We got last minute seats for Merle Haggard show and were seated in the highest section. Really saw the top of Merle's hat and the sound was a little muffled.

The Majestic Theatre in itself is quit an attraction. Beautiful interior. Saw Jay Leno from the Starlight Suites, and the show was very good. The acoustics were very good and could hear all of Jay's one liners.

A Broadway theater in San Antonio! Who knew!! The cast of Dirty Dancing was Broadway quality and the theater itself was worth the visit. Stunningly beautiful. If you enjoy the theater and love seeing the beauty of the building itself, This is a must see in SanAntonio!

We have been in theaters all across the country-this is by far the best yet. If you have a chance to catch a show there, do it!

most beautiful theater I've ever been in. Very unique in decor. Seating is very good and can view stage. Very conveniently located to Riverwalk and a lot of restaurants. We stayed at the Omni and it was a perfect location to be. Can't wait to ee another show there.

This theater is just like what most theaters are, expect with most majestic rooms and halls. But I guess this place is worth a visit as well
