My parents, who are in their 80's but NOT disabled, decided to make a spur of the moment trip to SF and only the Majestic Hotel had rooms available in the neighborhood they wanted. I now know why. The hotel is really old, has a very slow elevator, and the rooms are furnished in an Edwardian style, since it's a historic hotel. While the hotel is clean, it is shabby and not at all well-suited to anyone who is concerned about falling. There are only 2 "disabled units" and all of the other units have large claw-foot tubs with no handrails. When my parents got to their room, there was not even a rubber suction mat on the bottom of the tub or any decals for traction. Maintenance did add the decals for my parents but they were too afraid to take a shower in the bathroom because there were no handholds for support. For their 5 day stay, they had to sponge-bathe. The beds were also so high that my parents had difficulty getting into them and my dad almost fell getting out. I informed the manager when my parents were checking out of the danger the bathroom posed to those who must be cautious in their mobility and he thanked me for my input. But until the bathrooms are remodeled to make them safer, I do not recommend this hotel, since even young people can slip in the bathroom. The astronaut John Glenn did.
