Hotel's Favorite
The hotel offers great comfort, be it the spacious rooms,the pool and the outstanding spa area. The decorations are impressive. Of particular note is the service. All members of staff, from concierge, drivers and waiters have been very helpful under all circumstances. I actually could not recommend more. Aadesh Sharma Assistant Manager, has been very helpful from check in to check out. Hope you get to know him next time you will be at Leela Palace Chennai.

The hotel was very cozy, tastefully built and wonderful amenities. Excellent service and hospitality, and special to mention Isha, the reception girl. She was courteous and very helpful with an undying smile always. Pleasant personality and she made us feel very welcomed. Amazing meals, and splendid breakfast spread. We also had good service during both the events.
