“Chicago visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

I recently stayed at the Majestic Hotel and really enjoyed my visit. I chose this hotel as it was close to my daughter's apartment. I enjoyed the ease of getting public transportation and the ability to park my car with in and out privileges. The hotel staff were friendly and the accommodations were very nice. I would stay here again.

Anyone who hasn't done their homework on the Majestic may find a couple things confusing. But, we had no surprises or issues during our stay. Parking was a little different, but not a big deal for Chicago. Everyone was nice and breakfast was a good quality continental. I don't think it would be a place our kids would stay with us, but a nice getaway for my husband and I.

I will be back because it is conveniently located near my daughter (near Wrigley Field). It is also near express bus to downtown. However, I would probably not stay there otherwise. Rooms are small, not large enough for "reaching chair." There is a nice desk but they need outlets for plugging in electronics. (I travel with extension cord so I was able to set up my laptop, chargers, etc) "Continental Breakfast" is basically the same as economy motels. The rooms are small, the hotel is old (nothing they can do about that). The staff I interacted with was a mix from fantastically good, to overworked (one person during check out times), to three young men sitting at the front desk chatting amongst themselves. (The two people who were good, one exceptional, were both women. The mini bar was a pleasant surprise, nicely stocked and reasonably priced. The bathroom, again small, but adequate. Could use some towel bars. Room cleanliness was excellent. The FREE wifi was more than adequate and since I had to work while there was much appreciated.

Room Tip: The price differential between standard and mini-suite may be worth it if there are two of you. For...

This is an older boutique hotel that I stayed in during a business trip to Chicago. It is close to Lake Michigan although it isn't possible to walk to the lake from there due to how the roads are set up. The parking deck is secured and safe. The hotel is in a nice residential area. No room service but many local restaurants do deliver there. The rooms are small because this is an upgraded older hotel. The bathrooms are nice. It is easy to hail a cab nearby. I would stay here again when visiting.

Except for the definitely weak continental breakfast on offer (served in the lounge while seated on sofas...) this hotel has everything going for it. The rooms aren't too big but offer everything you need. Comfortable bed!
Do go to Yoshi's restaurant, about 15 min. walk. A treat! More enjoyable restaurants in the neighbourhood. Good public transport connections to downtown.

This small hotel was just right to serve as a base for our first trip to Chicago. The room was small but very comfy. The staff was excellent; recommending restaurants, giving directions, suggesting sights and giving realistic distance estimates (important when relying on public transportation!).
The neighborhood here is delightful, walker friendly, and safe at all hours. Many excellent restaurants are close.

Charming hotel in a great location. Lovely decor, great staff. The hotel is close to public transportation and withing a 5 minute walk to the lakefront. There are great restaurants in the area and you are close to Wrigley Field.
