“excellent hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

The rooms are clean spacious and very comfortable,perfect for business travel. I have always chosen this hotel for business visits as there are never any problems, everything is accessible, service very good and restaurant nice. Would recommend highly, however I would enjoy a nicer pool area for relaxation, it's quite small and not the best. Overall the service is so good, I will will keep staying here.

Despite arriving at four in the morning, the staff welcomed me with great professionalism and warmth. The room had every amenity I could wish for, including a bathroom with separate bath and shower cubicle. The decor is not entirely to my taste - it's very elaborate and heavy - but every aspect has been done with attention to detail. The food in the various restaurants is excellent, and the breakfast is not to be missed.

I have reviewed this hotel and could not help notice that the ranking of this hotel is at no. 11 which is not fair to a hotel which is certainly one of the best hotel in Chennai. It certainly should have been in the top 3 for service and in the top five for the property. Taj coromandal maeks sure that very aspect of ones stay is taken care of. The welcome is great, the rooms are lovely ( though not very big), The service in the rooms, the restaurants, the bar and the pool is great. The interiors are fabulous. No wonder that all the world leaders, dignitaries, sports stars, matinee stars and the business tycoons stay here.The only area where the hotel lacks is the facade which is a little outdated.

Room Tip: Check out the bar which is excellent though it is pricey.

Writing a review on the Coromandel has been on my to do list for sometime as it deserves my time to do so. My husband has been working in Chennai for last 2/3 years and for sometime The Coromandel was his second home, though his work tried to pesaude him to stay in other hotels the service and friendly staff make this hotel the best in Chennai, if not any other hotel we have stayed at. I have been out to stay with him at least 10 times and found the housekeeping outstanding, they even have my husbands favourite toiletries waiting for him now, when he arrives. The restaurants are all so good its hard to choose between them, the Italian Prego shipping in ingredients from Italy where you have to try the Sunday buffet not only very good value the choice is fantastic, the Chinese The Golden Dragon, I hate Chinese in England but this is superb with an excellent front of house manager, then there is the recently re-opened Southern Spice which re-opened about 6 months late as ever in India but so worth the wait, from the amazing paintings on the wall the new menu, and the staff are just wonderful, the last time we were there on our last night they made me and my husband a chocolate cake to say goodbye, then there is the Anise where you can eat 24/7 with an excellent selection and again lovely staff. Then if you want a drink, watch the cricket, with a buzzy atmosphere there is the Chipstead where we have spent many a late night and always feel very welcomed.

They have also just renovated the gym area which is great as I spend a lot of time in there, where again the staff can’t do enough for you, and if you want a treatment they are very good.

We have had dinner at most top end hotels, the Hyatt, The Connemara, The Sheraton, The Park, the new ITC hotel which though very impressive is just to big for me and I feel much more comfortable at the Taj.

Room Tip: They are always renovating either the hotel or somewhere outside, Chennai is a very busy place so yo...

Dear Guest,
Thank you for sharing a detailed review of your stay at Taj Coromandel.
Your generous, thoughtful compliments are sure to encourage us to greater heights of excellence. While we have renovated the hotel in keeping with international benchmarks, it is the ‘people’ who are the custodians of the quintessential Taj service philosophy; I am delighted to note that my colleagues have taken good care of you during your stay. Your positive feedback about your interactions with various departments has been communicated to all the members of our team.
Thank you for acknowledging our dining destinations. As you rightly pointed out, a visit to Chennai is incomplete without a meal at Southern Spice, which has returned as an iconic fine dining restaurant, mastering specialty cuisine from the four southern states.
Thank you once again for your valuable comments and look forward to the pleasure of your continued visits. We assure you of the best in service and hospitality.
Kind regards,
N Prakash

No complaints - the rooms are very comfortable the restaurants very good, chinese, indian, italian and hotel al a carte / buffet. Not cheap but food generally very good.
I found the leisure complex very good, gym,sauna, steam room, tropical/mist showers - all very clean with exceptional levels of customer service.
If you want an adventure, wonder outside the hotel main gate and you will find a couple of auto-rickshaw guys who will take you around!!

I am happy to note that you had a comfortable stay and satisfactory dining experiences at Taj Coromandel.
Further to your observation, the landmark location of the Hotel allows guests to enjoy business and leisure – both of which are within close proximity.
I am grateful to you for making a special mention of our gymnasium which has been recently renovated in keeping with international luxury standards. We look forward to enhancing this oasis of relaxation with the launch of Jiva spa in November 2013, which will offer unique Indian signature spa therapies and experiences.

When I'm traveling here in the States, I'm a Motel 6 type of guy so getting to stay here on business for a number of weeks was overwhelming. They have so many staff members it made my headspin. Guy opens car door, guy opens hotel door, desk personnel greet you, guy opens the elevator for you...it was over the top for me, but in a good way.

The room service was great too. Anything you wanted. My mini bar refrigerator wasn't working properly and that got fixed within minutes. It was crazy.

You can't really walk anywhere easily though...but that seems par for the course. There is a little grocery store about a five minute walk that has anything you need if you wanted to stock up on some snacks.

The power does go off for a minute at most every afternoon, but that seems to be the norm.

That Chinese restaurant and Indian restaurant are awesome. Try the hot and sour soup. I didn't get a chance to eat at the Italian one.

And the nightclub is cool. Apparently there's often actors and actress from Indian films there...but I wouldn't recognize them so I took peoples word for it.

And the laundry is great too. I'd get my shirts sent back all folded and wrapped up with cardboard. My NASCAR shirt getting the royal treatment always brought a smile to my face.

And the remote where you can control the lights and the curtains from the bed was awesome too.
