“Great Location; Great Rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

This hotel is within the city and just a minutes of drive to the shopping malls, T Nagar etc. The staff are very efficient, always greets you with a 'vanakkam'. The Madera Bar has got good collection of wines :) but the price mentioned on the room menu and the bar menu is different (they say the room menu rates are outdated). The restaurant has got good spread for lunch and breakfast (didn't had dinner, so can't comment). The food was good... The room which I got was spacious and had a very fresh feeling. The view from the room is the hassles of city life. You can't expect the serene view from a hotel situated within the city like Chennai. Definitely my choice for my next travel with family.

I picked The Raintree, Anna Salai because of my earlier stay at the St. Mary's Road. That is being renovated. So I expected the same level of standard as that of St. Mary's Road. And it did not disappoint me. Modern & spacious rooms. Check in was very fast. Room service & breakfast were nice and good variety catering to all kinds of travelers.
I was extremely impressed during our checkout at 4AM. Still the same service. Hats off.
Location is the center of the city, so if you have work in the industrial estate, then it will take eons to reach here. But if you have work in the city, one of my most recommended hotels for Chennai.

This is a very centrally located hotel which is very affordable especially if you look for deals on the travel web sites. It is worth every penny paid due to the treatment that you get, the ambience of the rooms, options of the restaurant and the icing on the cake being the gym and the spa.

Very close to main shopping places in Chennai and the quality of food. The toiletries are from Biotique and the linen placed in the room is always clean. Ergonomic work chairs which I have not found in many hotels across India.

Value for money and pamper yourself at the raintree

Very valuable hotel not too far from the city main sights: modern and clean rooms, excellent bathroom, lot of facilities and 2 restaurants inside.
May seem a little too posh or costy or "cool", but definitely one of the best staying I've experienced in South India.

I often stay here when I visit Chennai for Biz trip and perfect hotel for this purpose.
My company accommodate me The Park or here and I prefer here even they have bath tab in the room, and KAMA amenity.

1:Small hotel, but perfectly maintained , clean, starched Sheets, amenities are Biotique Bio
2:Complementary Fruites plate upon check in
3:Varius Buffet ( they have more than 6 kind of pastries, more than 4 kind of juice, Beef, pork sausage, cheese etc
( Only negative point is they never change menu at least this past one year)
4:Location is opposite Apolo Hospital Anna salai,20 mins by car from Airport without traffic Jam .
5:Staff are ok, I can see their effort of friendliness or service, well groomed.
6:No bath tab in Standard room
7:CNN, NHK, Arirang is available.
8:Not to far from TKK Road , where most restaurants locate. ( In Soul, Benjarong, Teppan, Go Go Ramen etc ) approx. 15 mins by car without traffic.
9:No Humidity or smell in the room ( Which most of hotels in chennai has, as it's sea side )

in addition, they have gym, pool, Spa( Not really recommended though) Gift shop and Roof top restaurant. For Busy Business tripper , necessaries are all in the facility and convenient.

I am very happy guest, will come back .
Hope you to keep the quality of guest service.

Room Tip: So far I stayed 2~5th floor and no complain. just 5th room had lots power cut when I stayed and I am...

Stayed in the Raintree Hotel for 4 nights during a business trip.

As a business traveler, all my expectations were met.
The hotel has multiple restaurants, meeting most peoples preference on food, ranging from traditional South Indian food, through classical European till simple and quick bar snack.

The rooms are nice and clean. The size is good for one or two travellers. If there are more sharing a room, it will be tight.

The hotel offered free wifi. Speed was ok, but nothing more. Sufficient to check email, but not enough for online entertainment. (Forget Netflix, then you would need more days).

In short, when traveling for business, I would come back. All is covered.
If traveling on vacation with family, I would look around for an other hotel
