The Majestic Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel was located in a quiet, safe area. I was allowed to check in early for a $30 fee. My room was quite small with almost no view. The ceilings were high, and the lone small window in my room was above the midpoint of the wall and looked out into the courtyard, barely. I felt like I was in the basement, and I wasn't. The lobby area always seemed to be occupied by large groups of people, so I'd guess it was comfortable. The bathroom could have been cleaner as there were tiny holographic stars on the white tile floor presumably from the last guest. The shower appeared clean.

This is a charming hotel, great location, neighborhood is very walkable. It's within walking distance of Wrigley Field, there are plenty of choices nearby for food and beverage. Close to the bus stops on Lake Shore Drive. Between public transportation, ride-share services, and walking, I didn't feel I needed to rent a car. The lobby was a great place to hang out and visit with family, and to get some work done during my stay.

The Majestic is located in the heart of the Lakeview district of Chicago and a delightful place to stay. Breakfast was plentiful and the evening cookies were welcome. Truly a nice surprise!

I had a horrible experience and would not book here and will be considering booking with another service other than Orbitz. I booked a room to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary but the picture of the room was not the room I received. The room was a cave with one window filled with a clanky old clattering A/C unit. Picture reserving a room in a basement. It was dark and small. Orbitz customer service? HORRIBLE I called Orbitz and they said someone would get back with me. I got several robo-emails saying they could do nothing. I called again. Same response. The hotel made no concessions even though they admitted the room I booked was not what I received. I would not book this hotel again.

This hotel is fairly close to Wrigley. We found places close to eat and transportation was easy to obtain. I loved being in a neighborhood with houses. A wonderful old architectural building with charm.

The room was clean however very small even for just 2 people. The cost is too much just to only sleep there

Stayed here because it had good reviews and was a short distance from the venue we were in town for. It's an old place that has had many updates. Biggest complaint was the heating was steam radiator. Our room did not have a thermostat. Or friends room did. Lucky we had no need to adjust the heat but if we did I would had to call the staff. The room was a good size and had a well stocked mini bar. Continental breakfast was a decent spread, but the room service offered was all frozen burgers or hotdogs because the place didn't have a kitchen. Plenty of bars and restaurants in short walking distance.

Hotel staff is awesome...super friendly and professional. Hotel is an interesting mix of comfort while being a little dated. I went into my room and at first thought...not sure about this - the room was small and dated. But the bed was so comfortable I slept very well..they had very reasonably priced snacks in the room..everything was clean...it grew on me. Paid parking was expensive but super convenient. Overall I would stay here again but suggest a king next time :)

Friendly/Helpful staff. The elevator is TINY!!! The king bed suite was VERY roomy. It had it's own separate living room. The old style heater made noise in the middle of the night. Kind of annoying but it went away after a few minutes. Very close to Wrigleyville. I'd probably stay there again.

We were very happy with this hotel. I would strongly recommend this place to Chicago travelers and we will definitely stay here again.

Wonderful time at hotel. Clean, spacious rooms. Hotel is converted and older but very charming. Mechanically everything worked and was kept very clean.

Upon our arrival we were greeted at the desk by Mona, who was friendly, accommodating and professional. She made the checkin process very easy. The room was small but very clean. For the length of our stay, staff acknowledged us when we entered or left the hotel.

The hotel is a cute old architectural building. The rooms are unexpectedly roomy and fit your needs for two people. The room was clean and quiet. The television was annoying, because the channel guide did not match how the cable was working. We would stay here again

Easy walk to Wrigley. Mona and Luis at the desk were phenomenal. Cody was great also.

This is a gem of a hotel in a great location. The staff was fantastic, full of helpful information of things to see and do nearby. This is an older hotel but very charming with a warm fireplace in the lobby / breakfast room. Comfortable room with small sitting area with couch and chair. Inexpensive bottles of wine ($15) were available in the room.

Just took a chance and booked for one night because it was close to the activity venues that we wanted to do in Chicago. It was a very pleasant experience. Its in a quiet neighborhood. The staff was courteous, friendly and helpful, and breakfast and coffee was great. Beds were nice and comfy too!

Loved the room but not location of it . Awakened by trash trucks every day. Might want to cover top of air conditioner units because when it rains hard the noise is terrible. The people were very nice and other guest were very nice, too

This was a fabulous FIND. We had a room at off-season rates and it was so wonderful! The staff was attentive, the buffet breakfast was good and the room was superb.

The hotel is in a great location. Close to Boystown, public transportation and a short walk away from bars and pubs. The bed was very comfy. Good breakfast and very friendly staff. The hotel old an old fashion feel to it. I would stay here again. The only downfall was no free parking but for $22 you can park around the corner and have 24hours of unlimited access a the garage.

This is the perfect boutique hotel. It's convenient to all transportation and so personable. The rooms are well appointed and spacious.
