This was a long weekend and we finally zeroed on Chennai again. The idea this was to just sleep and eat and little bit of exercise. So after a lot of tripadvisor reviews and deals we chose ITC Chola and truly it was a royal treat. We booked from the Hotel's website and they have some good deals, like 4k... More

Be warned. After a pleasant stay, my four days at the hotel were ruined when my laptop was stolen from my luggage while it was in storage for two hours before departure. One hears of these types of events, but doesn't expect them to happen in a five star hotel. Clearly there are major issues with the honesty of the... More

The most regal looking hotel property I seen. The outside and lobby are majestic. Some architect has done a very nice job. Room. layout wise I prefer the ITC Gardenia in B'lore better. The lack of a workstation was a bummer. Space was wasted on dual entries to the bathroom and could have been better utilized. Food was great. Loved... More

I was here for a business trip. I stayed on the women's floor - I felt very safe and it was a quiet floor. The room was awesome and the technology was pretty cool - controlled my room through an i-pad. We ate at the cafe several times and thoroughly enjoyed the food. We also ate at the buffet and... More

We stayed at the Grand Chola with family (Chola Suite), brother and his family (Chola Suite), In-laws, and niece and her family (Towers Executive rooms). Sum, sum our almost a month stay in Chennai was centered around our memorable experience at the Grand Chola. We also had two Hindu ceremonies in the hotel banquet facilities and a beautiful 50th birthday... More

I stayed in this hotel for 1 week on a mix of business and pleasure. Many hotels state they are grand, but this hotel truly lives up to its name. It's huge, with a mix of long term residence, business men/women and a scattering of vacationers. The hotel is located about 15min from Chennai International Airport by a hotel arranged... More

The latest hotel of Chennai is true to its name, "GRAND" in all respects. Good location, very well equipped rooms, all controls on iPad. One can open the door, sitting inside by seeing on the iPad who is outside, by clicking a button on the iPad itself. Great restaurants. Good food. Lavish Breakfast spread. Only problem is zig zag corridors... More
