“The Grand Majestic Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

My wife and I were recently on our way on a overseas trip from the West Coast, when we were stranded in Chicago for 3 days awaiting a connecting flight. We had no knowledge of the Chicago area, and found this hotel on Expedia as one of the least expensive options, so after a cab ride from O'Hare, we checked into our room. It was a great looking hotel in what turned out to be a very nice neighborhood a couple blocks from Wrigley Field, and a 30 min bus ride to downtown. We came to Chicago with the attitude that we were stuck in an unknown city, but left very happy and absolutely loved the city, and especially the look, feel, and experience of the Majestic Hotel. The staff was very helpful. Rox, Dan, Mona, Jesse, Frank and Dris treated us very well, and suggested great places to go, as well as the best ways to get there. We will definitely come back for another stay here next time we are in the area. Highly recommended!

Great hotel - comfortable rooms and bed, great service and outstanding location. It is in a great neighborhood not far from the lake and Wrigley Field. Staying here puts you a short walk to some great restaurants, pubs, the beach and Wrigley Field.

The complimentary breakfast is not spectacular, but serviceable, and the common room is inviting and comfortable. Great service from Dan - very personable and great outlook on life! A bit expensive, but we would definitely stay here again.

Stayed one night at the Majestic, which is just a short block off of Lake Shore Drive. Hotel was likely an old apartment building that was converted into a boutique. Rooms are small but well appointed and clean; not somewhere that you'd bring the kids for a few days but great for a single person who is there for the weekend for a Cubs game (about a 15 minute walk to Wrigley as well as to the CTA station) or to explore along Lake Shore, The neighborhood is very safe and has a few good spots for drinks and breakfast. You are also only about a $12 cab ride from The Loop, so you can get to anything there easily.The staff at the hotel were outstanding, not only accommodating to needs and requests but just downright friendly -- Mona was especially great. The place is also quite a value at $150 per night; even the $22 for parking wasn't bad, either.

This older boutique hotel is in a very nice area north of town by Wrigley Field. Awesome attention to detail. Dan the Concierge is the "go to" man for current information on what to do in Chicago, where to eat, and how to ride the bus..etc. Would come back here just for his love of the city and the attention he gives to guests. Good morning breakfast..simple and easy, comforting atmosphere
I will be ready to come back. Staff excels. Loved Chicago!.

Originally, the Majestic was selected because many other hotels in the Chicago were so expensive. Our group was attending a trade show at the convention center and found the Majestic was a reasonable cab ride to the convention center (approximately $20.00 each way.) The staff at this property went above and beyond to provide excellent customer service. All the staff members were very helpful and willing to assist with any request.

The added bonus was the proximity to Wrigley Field. A friend of mine was meeting our group for a Cubs game and he had to park further than the hotel was located from Wrigley Field. In addition, the hotel is a five minute cab ride to a nice area with a plethora of dining options and activities throughout the night.

The rooms were above average and the bed was very comfortable. A good wireless connection was provided and there were no issues connecting to the internet. In addition, there was a nice breakfast. Fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, cereal, pastries, milk, juices, coffee and other items were provided. The common area was well kept and ample space for sitting and talking with other guests.

Stayed there in March 2014 for one night. Good location in a very pleasant neighborhood with many restaurants within walking distance; parking was $25 and a few blocks away.
Got the room on Groupon. It was adequate and just clean enough: the bathroom floor was a bit smeary under the terry rug, and the sheets seemed not quite fresh. The mini bar was one of the best stocked we've seen, and the snack supply was ample, if one were to be marooned there by weather. The breakfast room could have been cleaner -- the tables were a bit smeary and had crumbs, and the set-up was a bit messy and awkward: had to cross people in close quarters bussing their dishes in order to reach some of the food. However, for the Groupon price, would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here for the 1st time in February. Loved the location, the price, the staff and the breakfast area. It is rare that I like a hotel so much that I make a point of going back. This is one of the rare ones.
