We honeymooned here 24 years ago and were eager to see how the old Majestic was holding up.
The lobby and grand staircase are still eye-popping. The human-operated, brass elevator takes you to a bygone era, for sure. The place is old and needs an overhaul. Our room had an insanely noisy neighbor, so the front desk moved us to a more secluded room which was tiny but had huge closets.
No natural light or air (we followed the lead of previous TripAdvisor reviews and asked for a fan but there were none). Nice bed, problem-free plumbing; aging electric outlets wouldn't hold our chargers.
The rooftop restaurant offers a great view of the zocalo. Breakfast buffet is pricey (try the jugo verde, a refreshing juice made of cactus & celery), but the coffee keeps coming and the scenery is fantastic. As the cathedral bells rang, we saw zocalo action (two different protest marches, Sunday morning church-goers) and the snow-capped volcano.
The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. Yeah, the Majestic is showing its age, but is a good bargain for its central location and old-style feel.
