I am referring to Mauve + Lilac rooms of The Raintree Hotel, Annasalai ( there is another Raintree at st marys road).

We (Dow Corning India, a 7 billion US$ MNC and Four P International, chennai) had a seminar on 10th sep 2013 (Tuesday) at The Raintree hotel in anna salai. After shortlising 3-4 star hotels, we have decided to try this. Since the number of participants is about 100, hotel has clubbed the 2 rooms (Mauve & Lilac).

The arrangements are fantastic. All the staff including boys are good and very courteous. The halls have safety arrangements with emergency/fire exists/sprinklers. Sound proofing of the halls is also very good. Appearance is very pleasing. Lighting is upto the mark (not less, not more). Since this is located in the main road (Mount Road), reach is convenient.

Food is delicious (this is totally different from normal-boring five star food).

Overall, if wish to have a seminar with a gathering of upto 200, The Raintree is fantastic choice.

The Raintree is a wonderfully clean modern hotel,such a pleasure to step throught the glass doors into the cool and peace inside.The lifts will only take you to your floor upon swiping your room key,a good security measure.Only hotel I have found that has airport style baggage scanners outside,all bags go through before you enter the hotel.A good idea in these days of increased security.The check in procedure was fast and the staff most helpful,polite and very willing to share their knowledge of the local area.The buffet breakfast was small but very well thought out,offering a good selection of western and local food choices.The dining area was spotless,not a fork out of place.All the furniture there was kept very clean,even the edges of the tables were wiped,something I find missed out in top rated hotels.A lot of attention goes into presenting a top class product every day even if other hotels are ranked higher.This in my opinion is a top ranked hotel.Our room was well presented and like the rest of the hotel:spotless.It has a small bathroom but it was very functional with floor to ceiling marble tiles and upmarket toiletries.Anyway how much time do you spend in a hotel bathroom.Thick sunblock curtains hold back the scorching sun and keeps the room very cool.A nice comfortable sofa and an LCD tv just in front.There was plenty of storage for small items,good size bedside tables and a long ledge opposite the bed for items also.The hotel is close to major shopping centres but allow a long transit time due to overcrowding and some major road projects underway.There is a nice pool on the roof top and a casual seating area that comes alive at night with music,there is a nice feel to the place.This area overlooks the roads and the local housing below,its a miracle there arent road accidents watching the way people navigate with each other.The hotel gym is next to the roof top pool area and has a good array of fitness equipment for those inclined to keep fit whilst on holiday.All said and done this hotel would suit both business travellers and families looking for a top class central hotel.Well done to management for instilling good principles to staff.

Room Tip: ask for upgrade specials when checking in.

I've been travelling to chennai since March 2013, since then I've been staying with them and they seemed to be one of the best affordable as well as no compromise on quality service provider in Chennai. Starting from rooms to Restaurants everything is perfect and very good. Staff culture and their behaviour is no doubt excellent and very caring. Staffs like Debraj, Nasir, Arindam, Ram, Suresh, Kapoor, Kaustav and others are one of the best personnels I've ever come across throughout my visits across other hotels in other cities. They are not only professionals and courteous but also friendly and helpful from hearts which is very rare in other hotels where they only act to be caring and friendly.

However I'll add in two tips for rooms which is that they should give more importance to rooms which are smoking rooms, because they act as non-smoking rooms and gets smoky after you smoke 1 or 2 cigarettes.. and the minibar refrigerators should be little more cooler.. they are almost of room temp

Apart from this Hotel and and its staffs are very good..overall my rating for them is 9/10.

Room Tip: Try choosing higher floors and roadside corner rooms which will come with two large windows on two s...

Had a great new years at Raintree. Fantastic bar, very nice peolpe. Breakfast is really worth the money. Got some great deal to stay, but the extra days we decided to stay cost us a bomb.

Good room service, great restaurant and very well presented food. Very nicely located in Chennai as well.

I stayed at Raintree thrice in quick succession during my office visits to Chennai.. A great hotel with excellent location in the heart of city

The delightful experience starts at the reception itself.. A very efficient front desk with very helpful bellboys.. Though i never used them. It continues to your room which are clean, tidy, comfortable and cosy.. A perfect situation for a business traveller after a long day..

Top it up with a great breakfast buffet and the delight continues. The south Indian restaurant in the lobby and the north indian restaurant on roof top adds to the overall package.. A thumbs up all thenway..
