Very good property - good ambience with all amenities of a 5 star hotel at a cheaper price. Swimming pool and gym on the top floor - a must visit. The main restaurant serves good food - the idli corner is a plus. Wifi speed was one challenge - was not that great.

Had an extremely comfortable stay at the Raintree last week. The hotel has been recently renovated and the rooms are excellent. Large enough, crisp air-conditioning, green views, and very warm and attentive service. Plus truly exceptional food. Their biryani was to die for.

I have traveled to Chennai yearly since 2005 and have stayed at Raintree in Alwarpet more than a few times. The service is always impeccable and I was not disappointed on my last stay this week -- the only bad thing was that my stay was not long enough!

I stayed at this hotel for one night 14 March 2015 between 3 and 4 PM. There was no restaurant to have a meal or snacks, only room service. Restaurant opens only in the evening. Was given a room with two single beds joined to look like a queen size bed. The room was near the lift/elevator and telephone service... More

So far, Raintree is the best hotel I have stayed in Chennai. During our business trip to Chennai this week, we loved the Raintree hospitality. Modern comfortable rooms, excellent service and friendly staff make the experience amazing. We also had 2 guests from Switzerland staying over there. One of the them was not feeling well and the hotel staff ensured... More

This hotel was the silver lining to a horrendous experience with a flight cancellation on Lufthansa. I would've never thought to come here by myself since I had a friend to stay with in Chennai, but now that I've experienced it I would definitely consider this as an alternative during my next visit. My room was beautiful, spacious, modern and... More
