Didn't work out
Posted Sep 26, 2016
this place constituted one of the most erratic experiences i've ever had as a business traveller. one the one hand, as others have noted, the Majestik is not a hotel. it is a set of apartments in a fairly typical old walk up apartment building. it was a late booking, but i paid over $200 a night, not including a $20 parking charge at a lot down the block that had no in/out privileges. obviously there is no room service or breakfast.
as others have noted, the Majestik makes an awful first impression. the carpet on the stairs is not just dirty--it is filthy. the wifi was very very spotty--the signal was dropping constantly, and was slow. the apartment i stayed in was fairly nicely appointed, but it definitely had that anonymous feeling that one gets when you stay at an airbnb that is solely used for rentals.
the real deal breaker for me though, was that starting around 12 noon the apartment completely filled up with the smell of greasy food being cooked in the restaurants that face Sherbrooke. (there are 4 restaurants on the ground floor of the building). if i opened the windows it was worse. the smell of greasy fast food got worse and worse over the course of the day. there is literally no fresh air circulating in the apartment. the smell was coming out of every vent in the apartment. it got to the point that i felt nauseous and had to open the door to the hallway to try to get a bit of fresh air.
based on this i definitely couldn't recommend this place.
