This is a fundamentally good hotel with some funny and sometimes limiting rules. They make a fuss about allowing people to come up and meet you in the rooms. Packed breakfast - reluctant. Overall Service Standard - OK. Nothing to write home about.

This is a story of a beautiful and a bad hotel. The hotel is just two years old. It is very well designed and gives an ultra modern, clean and fresh feel, with some very beautiful art work. Some of the cooking is absolutely 1st class. The mutton biryami was the best I have ever had anywhere in the world.... More

The sleek modern decor and excellent service made this place a real find. Chennai is a bustling city and the hotel provided an attractive and calm oasis that we needed towards the end of a busy day sightseeing. The extensive breakfast buffet was wonderful as was all the food we had in the restaurant. There is also an attractive rooftop... More

Positives: swanky and spanning new (I think - I fancy I smelled new paint) property, much larger than the other Raintree in St Mary's Road. Gives a classy, upscale feel and I can imagine this a great place for business or pleasure. The room was bright, reasonably quiet (though facing Anna Salai) with tasteful Toto and Duravit appliances in the... More

Every member of staff who comes in front of you says 'Vannakam' with folder hands, which I understand in Tamil is a way of saying Hello.
