A 1902 treat!Posted Dec 22, 2014
Loved the room! The hotel staff were wonderful! AJ and the bartender were very atentive and kind as well as the front desk and valet staff. It is the most charming hotel I think I have ever stayed in from the canopy beds to claw foot tubs and stunning decor and stairwells! Loved it and will definitely come back and recommend. The food and bar were wonderful as well! Thank you for a very special experience!

Good locationPosted Dec 16, 2014
It was an ok hotel. We stayed at a junior suite because the regular rooms were extremely small. You literally have a foot between the door and the wall. Not bad overall. Liked that everything was less than 2 miles away.

Nice for the pricePosted Nov 25, 2014
The Hotel Majestic isn't going to win any awards, but it's nicely located and our suite was a decent size. Could do with modernisation, but for the price you can't really complain.

Beautiful old hotel, great locationPosted Nov 17, 2014
Pros: Staff, rooms, amenities, appearance, location, ease of access to public transportation
Location: Great central location for downtown San Francisco easy access to public transportation try the Sweet Maple Cafe highly recommend Dylan's City Tour
The Hotel Majestic is a great boutique hotel in lower Pacific Heights. I have read some of the negative reviews, and I have to assume they are due to preconceived expectations; If your preference is a chain hotel, like Holiday Inn or Best Western, don't stay here. This building is more than 100 years old and has a ton of character and ambiance, the rooms are not identical and vary in size, layout, furnishings, however they are all uniquely charming and comfortable. The building is kept very clean and tidy both inside and out, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel staff were courteous and helpful with all our inquiries, and were happy to help with information about restaurants as well as transportation around the city. The hotel restaurant is in a beautiful dining room, the food is good but not great, however there are some nice cafes and restaurants in the area. Our favourite was the Sweet Maple cafe, about 6 blocks west on Sutter Street; fantastic breakfast and lunch menu and reasonably priced (try the millionaire bacon!), especially considering the quality of the food. I would recommend this hotel for anyone spending a few days in San Francisco who can appreciate a real boutique hotel experience.

Extremely pleasant older hotelPosted Nov 17, 2014
Pros: The beds are super comfortable, the showers hot and plentiful, and I love the ambiance. I also like the bar downstairs. Try the signature drink.
Cons: In hot weather, it would be nice if all the windows actually opened. Some were stuck shut and one couldn't stay up. Also the parking is too expensive
Location: The Fillmore district is just a few blocks away, and also JapanTown. Interesting shopping and lots of restaurants. Also a nice little gym.
I stay at The Majestic 2 or 3 times a year when I come to San Francisco to visit family. I always enjoy the stay.

Beautiful hotel. Close to cable car line.Posted Oct 28, 2014
Pros: Style, size, non-corporate feeling, price, location.
Location: Very close to top of the California cable car line. Just a few blocks from St. Mary's cathedral (incredible architecture).
We wanted an nice, but reasonably-priced hotel for a weekend away in SF. Hotel Majestic got it right. The hotels closer to North Beach and Pier 39 were almost 2x the price, and just big corporate chains. Majestic is a classic old-world elegance place. Bed was comfortable. Staff was immensely friendly. We could walk easily to the top of the California cable-car line, which enabled us to get pretty much anywhere on public transportation. There were plenty of cool little eateries and bars nearby to the hotel as well, and the in-hotel food was very good.

Good location for the SF Opera HousePosted Oct 24, 2014
Pros: Location convenient to bus system and restaurants.
Cons: Staff with more experience about the local area.
Location: Hillside location may be difficult for some seniors. However we went to the opera, the embarcadero and downtown shopping conveniently on the bus.
Vintage hotel with interesting décor. However, for seniors, the beds are quite high and may require a stepping stool. Some bathtubs are high claw foot tubs and again may be high for some seniors. We were unable to acquire a rubber safety mat from the hotel for using the tub as a shower. Very small room. Nice restaurant with egg and bacon breakfast.
