I learned of this hotel while preparing for a business trip to Chicago. My colleagues and I wanted somewhere that had easy access to Wrigley Field since we planned to attend an evening game while there. I believe the Majestic was the only hotel within walking distance of the ballpark that got decent reviews.
We were not disappointed. Transportation from O'Hare was easy enough: get on the Blue Line of the "El," get off at Addison Station, then take the 152 bus east to Pine Grove. The Majestic is perhaps a half-block away.
Check-in was easy and fast (we had made reservations earlier the week before). We got to our rooms, cleaned up, then headed to Wrigley Field.
The walk to Wrigley is easy, and at no time did we worry about safety. (Admittedly, it was three men, but the neighborhood where the Majestic is located is fairly affluent residential, and also there is a police station close by. Walking back (around midnight) was also fine. I slept fine--though I had been awake since 4 am, so I was pretty exhausted.
The one negative was the poor breakfast. It is your run-of-the-mill continental breakfast, bad coffee and all. They could pay more attention to this service.
Other than that, the Majestic met our needs: clean, comfortable room in a safe location within walking distance of a national treasure, Wrigley Field.
