“wonderful birthday celebration”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

My friend and I,made a reservation by mistake at the majestic hotel , and we didn't want to make changes cause we thought that it will be a lot of trouble booking all over again, or making another reservation. We took time to read reviews on TripAdvisor, about The Majestic
we were not to excited to stay there, but we didn't have enough time to make other arrangements.
We got there after 1pm. tired,exhausted, hungry .....well we were surprise and excited as soon as we walk because it was not what we expected. Lobby room very spacious, comfortable, and coffee just what we need it. We check in with the front desk Jordan, very helpful and polite. We felt welcome , also we met Dan, he was lovely to us. No offense but he was gorgeous just like our grandpa. .we love the majestic, we had fun since friday afternoon until monday when we check out.. The staff was excellent, the room was impeccable clean, nice and fresh smell. The maid that clean our room was wonderfull ...Iryna thank you chocolate kisses,and also julieta was on top of everythin during our stay, help us with the tv, and ironing a dress... love our stay and definitely we are returning again and again to the Majestic. All the staff made our birthday weekend Awsome.

Travelled from NJ to Chicago for a wedding. Majestic located in a quiet, residential neighborhood. Clean, great breakfast, coffee available any time you wanted some, great staff!! Dan was especially helpful, could not do enough for us. Breakfast room also used for a sitting room, our group met there each morning and evening. Rooms quiet and comfortable. Within walking distance of Wrigley Field. Very easy to hail a cab at the end of the block. Close to Lake Shore Drive, nice area for walking/running. The Majestic has charm, it is not a modern aseptic hotel. Would definitely stay there again.

This hotel not only needs a complete renovation .. It also needs to adjust its rates. The rates are way too high for the state of the hotel. The rooms are old looking, furniture and walls are chipped and pealing, our room smelled moldy and the hallway and entrance needs updating. The air conditioning units are in the window and, when on, either don't cool the entire room, or when sleeping, it' blows directly onto the bed, thereby making it freezing while sleeping (or trying to).

Only nice part of our stay was the friendly service and location to the home of close friends.

Until there is some upgrade and renovation, I won't be back.

Dear Guest,

I am of course very concerned of the areas which left you to feel disappointed. Please be assured we pay close attention to comments and feedback such as yours as a means of continually improving our rooms and facilities for our future guests. We just finished a renovation of all the guest rooms and common areas which we hope you will give us an opportunity to show you all the changes that we made.

We look forward to welcoming you back.

Sincerely,

Keith E. Scott

I stayed here for one night. Due to a flight delay I did not arrive until 10PM, and took the train/bus from the airport. It was pouring rain and after walking a couple of blocks I was glad to find the hotel. It's in a residential area which is nice. The staff were all very friendly.
It was too late for dinner and I did not want to go out into the dark rain again. In the room they had some snacks (crackers, candy bars, granola bars) so that was my dinner. The amazing thing was that they charged only what you would pay at the grocery store. I am used to extreme mark-ups in the hotel rooms.

The next morning the breakfast was ample - fresh fruit, some pastries, hard-boiled egg, juice, yogurt, cereal. The dining room/front lounge has lots of wood trim and was old-fashioned. I prefer that to the modern glass and steel hotels.

My room was small, but clean and quiet. It was all I needed for a night stay.

The hotel is not right downtown but it was easy to take the subway or a bus.

Room Tip: I got the least expensive room and it was OK for one person but might be crowded for two.

My wife and I loved our stay at the Majestic. It is, as some readers suggest, a little tired but its charm, location and very helpful and friendly staff more than compensated.Mona,who described herself as a mother hen, was particularly helpful in arranging tickets for the river tour (strongly recommended) and great advice on transport,shops,restaurants,in fact anything!
Breakfast was fine and nice to have regular free coffee on hand at all times.
There were not many fellow English people around and when anyone discovered our nationality we were treated like Royalty.

I recently stayed at this hotel and was really impressed by the way it was run. Me and a friend brought a movie DVD that did not work and the manager of the hotel, Keith, went out of his way to personally go out and rent us a DVD from a local store that did work. He even tested it to make sure it worked in their DVD players before giving it to us. This went along with the great service his staff provided for us on our entire trip. We stay at this hotel annually for Reds-Cubs games (11 years and running) and have no plans on making any changes, especially with the noticeable improvements being made by Keith and his staff. Highly recommended and easily the best place to stay in the Chicago-Wrigleyville area.

Really enjoyed the stay. All staff extremely helpful and knowledgable staff.
A bit out of town, in nice and quiet area but direct, fast bus very close - and it is a nice, but long walk along the lake from the Pier (city center). Many restaurants close to the hotel. Nice big room and bathroom. Good hairdryer. Efficient aircon .. but no safe deposit box. Free wifi works well.
I will most probably stay here if visiting Chicago again.
