We came to Chicago to celebrate our 10th anniversary and were looking for a quiet, romantic hotel and that was exactly what we got at the Majestic. Customer service is top-notch here and the atmosphere is quaint and comfy. Located in Lincoln Park, just off Lakeshore Drive, it's easy to find. The parking was only $22 for 24 hours. It's small with a tiny elevator and grand staircase, only 3 levels, and furnished in antique-type furniture to match the historical architecture. We were upgraded to the honeymoon suite and just after we checked in, a wonderful, young man named Cory brought a complimentary bottle of delicious wine to our room. The suite had an extra sitting room that looked out over the street and neighborhood with a couch & chair and flat screen TV mounted on the wall (there was another large flat screen TV on the wall in the bedroom). The bed was very comfortable and the comforter was down-filled with a high headboard attached to the wall. There was a nice sitting room downstairs with a fireplace and a Christmas tree, decorated for the holidays and free cookies, coffee and tea service. It was very pleasant to sit by the fire on that chilly afternoon and sip a cup of tea. Very warm and inviting! The bathroom was clean and adequate with plenty of hot water and wall dispensers with soap, shampoo, and conditioner-- lots of towels. I actually used the tub for a bath and it was bigger than mine at home. The minibar was stocked with everything we wanted after a long drive (whiskey, rum, coke, candy, & snacks). The TV worked fine and the heat was more than adequate. There were radiators in each room in addition to extra vents in the wall, which were adjustable. Best of all, there were plush spa robes in the closet! I felt like royalty here. Cory went out to the corner and hailed a taxi for us to go to dinner and he did the same the following day when we left to go shopping downtown. They also locked up our luggage until we were done shopping after checking out. The Wifi was free too! We have stayed in many of the big expensive hotels downtown and NEVER have we had such cheerful and personal service like at the Majestic. The manager on duty, Mona, was right when she said we would like the Majestic better. In the morning they served a FREE breakfast in the adorable sitting room which included hard boiled eggs, sausage & egg muffin sandwiches, croissants with ham & cheese filling, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, juice, coffee, tea, milk, etc. You will really get your money's worth here. It's not close to downtown shopping, which is the ONLY negative thing I can think of, but in our case, it was perfect. The taxi drive downtown was only around $10 and didn't take more than 10-15 minutes in traffic. I would highly recommend Mon Ami Gabi restaurant, which is about 2-3 miles south across from the Lincoln Park conservatory for a romantic dinner. Thank you, Majestic, you will always be in our hearts and I will forever be singing your praises!
