In line with most of the Taj properties, this hotel is one of the best in Chennai. Located at the center of the city. I heard that it is one of the oldest hotels in Chennai. You can see that old charm every where. The rooms are spacious with all amenities. Service is as per the standards of the Taj group.
Food is a bit of disappointment. (the reason may be that, i had food from the buffet for the meeting where the spread will always be compromised for the cost). I can understand that the choice will be limited, but the taste is not what was expected from Taj.
Other than food, there is nothing much to complain. The property has an excellent pool. The fitness center may need some up gradation in terms of space and equipment.
Only complaint is about the receptionist. I was offered the Taj inner circle membership when i stayed at another property 4 months back. I gave the number to him while checking in and requested him to check whether the membership is activated. I reminded the reception during my stay also. But while checking out, i was told that they couldnt contact the member relationship team. It has been three months now and till date i have not got any communication.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Vivanta by Taj - Connemara, Chennai is the city's only heritage hotel, built in 1854 as the Imperial Hotel, renamed Albany in 1886, finally re-established as The Connemara in 1890. It was an Art Deco look that the Connemara sported when it ‘reopened’ in 1937. And the legendary architect Geoffrey Bawa added his touch to the tower block and linking pool in 1974. Today it is infused with the spirited style of Vivanta by Taj. ... more less
