On a recent weekend getaway to Chicago, we decided to stay at the Majestic near Addison and Lake Shore. We've stayed at this hotel before and, while much of our activities were going to take place in other parts of the city, we've always enjoyed the Majestic's friendly staff, location and the hotel itself.
This trip lived up to those expectations. Our King Suite room was more than enough room for our two-night stay. The free wi-fi and extra space to spread out really makes the stay more comfortable. They also offer a free breakfast buffet in the lobby in the morning, free coffee and tea throughout the day and fresh cookies in the afternoon.
The staff is great, ready to offer advice on places to eat and things to see and do in the area. It's a great neighborhood for strolling with Lake Michigan just a few blocks away. They offer some great packages throughout the year directly through their website.
Chicago's wonderful public train system - specifically the red line - is just a few blocks away. In fact, the Addison Street stop is at the famous Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. Even if you aren't a baseball fan, be sure to take a few minutes to check out the view.
Chicago's Boystown is just a few blocks from the hotel. That means lots of gay and gay-friendly bars, restaurants, shops, etc. in the neighborhood. Most of the activity is located along or near Halstead, but you'll find all kinds of fun in Chicago. It's also just a short cab ride downtown, if you prefer.
There is great food of all types all around. Our favorite is Angelina Ristorante, located just a couple of blocks away. It's a tiny Italian place with maybe the best food in Chicago. You'll definitely want reservations.
If you're looking for a comfortable place with easy access to lots of Chicago fun, at a reasonable price, you can't beat the Majestic Hotel.
