The enormous ceiling, the chandeliers, the massive beams, the flags, the candles on the table and the grand piano . . . it all makes for a dramatic background to a memorable dinner (or breakfast or brunch - we had them all). We were there...More

We had brunch in the dining room and it was thoroughly impressed. The food stations were numerous and with the best quality ingredients. This is a must if you are in the area.

I can't improve on existing reviews of this exceptional experience. However, readers may be interested that the people who register you for the dinner when you arrive are extremely familiar with the menu and possible substitutions. If you have concerns, they will go over it...More

Dining at the Majestic Hotel's main dining room is truly a treat for all the senses. While the grand piano play's heavenly music, the wait staff will pamper you. My wife and I each had the French Onion Soup and Prime Rib dinner. Even the...More

I'd recommend driving. You can park in the lot at the hotel free of charge and if the service is super slow, you don't want to be stressed out about catching the last shuttle at 10pm.
