Hampton Inn Majestic Chicago Theater District Hotel Review: Located in the historic Majestic Building above the Bank of America Theatre --- which hosts Broadway shows like “Jersey Boys” and “The Book of Mormon” when they come to the Windy City --- this hotel is a showstopper thanks to its central location in Chicago’s Loop. Because it’s within walking distance of Willis Tower, the Art Institute of Chicago and Millennium Park, not to mention plenty of shopping on nearby State Street, visitors can feel confident canceling their rental car reservations and using the money on theater tickets, instead. If you do, you won’t even have to leave the building to see the show, as the hotel lobby is connected to the theater’s ground floor --- the perfect scenario on a sub-zero winter evening. If you’re concerned about noise, don’t worry: Rooms are well-insulated from the streets and shows below. Although its sounds are kept out, the theater’s atmosphere definitely seeps in, as rooms feature a dramatic orange color palette that was no doubt inspired by the stage. Because color psychologists consider orange an energetic color, it’s a good thing the hotel has a 24-hour fitness center and complimentary continental breakfast to give guests fuel.
