I stayed at Leela Palace Chennai for 3 nights after being awed by Leela Palace Delhi, and walking out of two seeming good hotels in Chennai during my recent trip to India. I have to confess that after staying in Leela palace Delhi, I had high expectations from Chennai as it is newly built, but it fell short by a... More

The internet rates were pretty high. So my recommendation to the... More

I always come back as the service is excellent with nice size rooms. You can see the TV from anywhere in the room. Though I never had the see view the city one is nice too. The food is good though not cheap.

This is an ultra modern hotel in the heart of Chennai. I stayed there for 2 nights and found the hotel staff efficient, the room spacious and very well appointed, and the bathroom accessories of extremely high quality. The food was excellent –particularly breakfast and lunch, both of which were buffets. I was on the 9th floor with a view... More
