We stayed at the Majestic Hotel to celebrate our mini-honeymoon before our big trip next year. We were looking for a small boutique hotel that we would look forward to returning to in the future. We found the Majestic through reviews online and were very satisfied with the price we found on their website.
The hotel is about four blocks from the Red Line Subway and is located in a quiet residential neighborhood. It is pretty easy walking distance with a suitcase and we found travel from midway airport to be manageable. Check in was smooth. Although we showed up early the staff scrambled and our room was perfect when we arrived with the champagne chilled and waiting.
We stayed in the Sunroom Suite. The room was the perfect size and very clean. There was a nicely sized desk, a king sized bed and then a seperate room with a loveseat, armchair and a second television. I really enjoyed the small kitchenette with a microwave, small fridge and extra sink (the mirror in this space made it a good place to get ready to go out for the evening). The room has an honor bar that was very reasonable (about $1 each for snacks and sodas). The decor is 'older' but not shabby and quite adequate. We felt it had charm. For a modern touch - the wifi was fast and free.
The staff were very friendly. There is a nice drawing room on the ground floor that always has tea and coffee available. Breakfast consists of pastries, bagels, cereal and some microwave options (like Jimmy Dean Sandwiches). I would say one of the better free breakfast spreads.
Overall we had a wonderful stay. The hotel was perfect and we will definitely be back.
