“Great Wedding Night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2006

We married in Chennai in December 2004 and my in-laws booked this hotel for our wedding night. We knew it was reasonably priced, as we were on a budget, but didn't know what else to expect. What we did get was a large professional clean modern hotel! The room was a decent size, clean and great decor with a nice bathroom. The lobby is impressive and the in-house restaurant served great food! Cant recommend this hotel enough! I stayed one night at the very expensive Sheraton before my wedding and the GRT grand was just as good for much much less. We were also pleased to see they left a cake and a basket of fruit in our room to make our special day more special! Nice to see a hotel that takes time to do the little extras. Stay at the Grand days and have a comfortable, friendly stay.

Most of the time Chennai is congested, polluted, hot and pretty chaotic. Staying at GRT Grand Days is cool and comfortable. It's a welcome haven in a difficult city. The hotel is located kind of between the shopping and the business area. Most of the places you would want to go are just a short autoride away (unless you get stuck in a traffic jam), The interior architecture gives the hotel an interesting ambience. The rooms are situated around an open space extending from the ground floor lobby and up through the entire building. Two glass elevators carry guests up and down from the lobby, much like astronauts on their way to and from the launch pad. So if you are scared of heights it might be a bit scary to stay high up in the building as only the floor railing separates you from the abyss. I stayed there with my family (including two small kids) although Grand Days caters primarily to a (mainly Indian) business clientele. We had a room on the top floor (9th) with uninterupted views over southwestern Chennai. The children loved the elevator rides! The service and staff was good and flexible and you can tell that the place is under good management. Even at 4.30 in the morning when we checked out things were just as efficient and friendly as during daytime.

  • Liked — The efficiency of the service and the effortlessness in staying there.
  • Disliked — Being surrounded by males talking on mobile phones in the restaurant.
  • Tips/Secrets — Don't use the expensive minibar. Buy your own stuff at Spencer Plaza.

Excellent service. Hotel staff are very polite, friendly and helpful. Rooms are also large, very cosy and clean. Except for the lack of TV programmes in the English language, this hotel is highly recommended as a home away from home for a foreign traveller...

Rooms are large, comfortable and well appointed with emperor bed, sofa and chair, kettle, minibar and hairdryer. Complimentary mineral water, fruit, chocolates and newspaper. Immaculately clean with good housekeeping service. Two restaurants open but there are normally three. Food superb and maitre D very helpful on choices. Service exceptional. A hotel that we would highly recommend as a retreat from the bustle of Chennai.

For people like me, who have been out of Madras ( Chennai ) for a long time, either in Bombay ( Mumbai ) or outside the country, the stay at GRT Grand Days was something to remember for. The rooms were just the size, with the right type of decor and the restaurents excellent, especially to enjoy real south indian delicacies - we did enjoy our breakfast ! All in all, for budget stay with real value for money, Grand Days is recommended
