“Experienced the true meaning of Hospitality !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

I usually visit places and hotels as across different cities & it's an immense to express that how much I enjoyed my Monday evening and over night stay @ Le Royal, such a great honor and amazing service visiting has been an extraordinary experience. With great respect and admiration

The host was expected to make sure the needs of his guests were seen to, a feel of WOW exp for me.

I wish to thank everyone for the amazing welcome and hospitality here at Le Royal Meridien. Absolutely the best and the service even better.

And how can I forget to mention about "Happy Hours" just too good.

Looking forward for another visit !!!

I have been there for a week. My 1st day experience was awesome but with each passing day service and quality loopholes got exposed. It reached to the extent that 2 day before I had to leave the hotel, they were not picking up the laundry even after calling my times. At last they told me that they won't be able to give it back on time, after 2 days!. Many things were missing from the room. Basic things were absent- hair dryer, shaving kit, shampoo, slippers to name a few. I had to call them to provide me these things. The quality of shaving razor, toothpaste was horrible. That razor cut me at various places on the neck. Don't use that even by mistake. They gave me Rs.10 toothbrush. I advise you to carry all these basic utility things with yourself.
Coming to food now. Every morning I was getting the same typical south Indian breakfast(buffet system). If you are going there for 1 or 2 day then its okay. But eating same breakfast over and over..I can't tell you how it feels. Lunch and dinner was good though.
They have got only 60 TV channels there, many of which are in Tamil.
Internet charges are too high considering the speed they are providing. Rs.337 for one hour for that speed! You got to be kidding me.
Loved the Dome. Every evening, a pianist used to play the likes of Beethoven, Bach there which felt great. Very soothing.
And one more thing, putting aside receptionist, none of the staff of the hotel I talked to was proficient in English. I had a horrible time explaining the laundryman when to give clothes back.
I know I am too critical, but again everyone is appreciating the hotel. You should know the other half.

I normally go to the restaurants in Le Royal Meridien Chennai. This time, I stayed in the hotel with my friends for a night. I found the pleasant reception, very good environment in the room, excellent food and service in Cilantro Restaurant and marvelous SPA services.

Room Tip: Choose Royal Meridien at Chennai if you want to enjoy stay and food.

I cherished each and every moment from my check in to check out. To say in short, smiling reception, faster check in, accompanied by Guest Relations Executive to explain the facilities in the room, my dining. There was excellent coordination by the Travel Desk. Overall experience was excellent.

Room Tip: If you wish to enjoy, have a Royal Suite in Le Royal Meridien Chennai.

I stayed here on 2 occasion and found the Hospitality and service and quality of food were great and consistent. The reception staff were very friendly and the restaurant staff were very helpful too. Rooms were very spacious with quality amenities were at it's best too.

Morning complimentary breakfast at Cilantro was excellent with wide variety of choices.
Would definitely recommend the hotel to everyone and my future stays in Chennai will be at this hotel.
