We were it Chennai to attend a friend's wedding and chose to stay at The Residency. The two nights that we were there was very very pleasant. The rooms were clean and well done. The breakfast buffet was the highlight of our stay. They had a lot of healthy options on the spread. The wheat muffins were surprisingly yummy. The dosas were to die for. We will definitely come back for the breakfast!

This is one of the very old but very well maintained hotel in Chennai,
Rooms: Rooms are really nice with the basic aminities available for a comfortable stay with free internet in Room and very quite.
Food: Good variety of complementary breakfast but definitely don't compare with 5 star hotels. Food is quality is Good and equally Good room service.
Hotel Location: Hotel is located in center of city walking distance from T-Nagar market if anyone loves shopping.
Airport Peak up-drop: Hotel can arrange airport peakup and drop on the chargable basis or complementary if you staying in higher category of room.
In All wonderful Hotel in reasonable price.
Stayed in this hotel for many times in last 5-7 years

The employees are very polite and well turned out. The rooms are spacious. On one visit however, I had to ask for a change of room due to a faintly unpleasant smell, which was promptly done.Tbe bathroom is also well proportioned. The LCD TV size is too small. Free internet connection is a convenient feature. On one occasion, the WiFi was erratic and there was no clear guidelines on LAN cable availability. There are a number of lights in the room, but control switrches are confusing and perhaps a bit too dispersed. The mini pantry is adequate and well maintained. Elevators are fast and well maintained. Food variety is wide and tasty.

Good hotel, clean rooms and bathrooms, very good ambience, good option for business travellers, but food is on te costlier side, buffet menu @ Rs 500, dosa at Rs 150.
People on business trip do not eat so much so pricing shold be reviewed

Stayed here for 3-day business trip. Hotel has seen better days. Hotel restaurant staff kind, but overbearing. Desk service very poor and inattentive. Business Center a joke -- two small desks with old Lenovo computers right off the elevator on the 10th floor (and with a printer that did not work). Hotel's 1st floor bar seemed to enforce strict dress code on foreigners, such as myself, but not on Indian locals. Few things are ever easy in India, and this hotel seemed to go out of its way to live up to that unfortunate cliche.

We live in the U.S.A. When we went to India in 1996, our close realtive recommended this hotel. The hotel rooms are clean and the bathrooms are exceptioanlly good along with little ameniteis not provided in many hotels
After the inital stay, we made three trips. We selected other hotel in the same neiborhood since they were little cheaper. But we did not stay in them for more than one night and always ended up at the Residency.
This hotel has gone through an upgrade and is even better.
The staff are courteous and are there to help you when you need them. They offer an excellent buffet break fast which is inlcuded with your room rent. they alos have 24 hour restaurant. Also available tourist taxis.
It is not far from the air port and is covenient for shopping.
