Reviewed February 10, 2013

This hotel is large and good. The cleanliness and service must be improved.. Bathroom must be added with more utensils... The food variety must be more wider with more south indian dishes specifically like from kerala..

I have always stayed at Maris, this is one of the oldest hotels in Chennai. The rooms & bathrooms are really big & very clean. The tariff is very reasonable. This hotel is perfect for business as well as family holidays. I have always noticed that the hotel is very careful in giving out the rooms to certain class of people, I mean in a very good way, so that all guest feel very comfortable.

The GM of this hotel Mr.Vijay is a great guy (Mr.Vijay if you are reading this, I am the guy whom you gave room 203 on 23 Jan 2013), as this time he gave me the room on arrival as I was on a unplanned one day trip to Chennai. Please make a note that this is a very busy & most popular hotel in Chennai, so kindly make your reservations in advance. "Try to take rooms in the back side as they have nice view & very peaceful."

This hotel have a great restaurant on the ground floor, they serve amazing South Indian food, the hygiene levels are very well maintained.

This hotel is about 30 to 45 minutes from airport as well Chennai central railway station, subject to traffic. It has great restaurants around 100 to 200 meters.

Room Tip: Try to take back side rooms, nice green view & quieter.

I am staying here after 5 yrs. The hotel is just okay with rooms not under good maintenance. The rooms are old with peeling wall paint and bathrooms just okay and could be cleaned better. I see that it is under going renovations but I got a room that was not renovated - hence my not so good rating. Also the room TV has only a few channels available that are mostly Tamil. There are restaurants close-by that are good. Maris also has a vegetarian restaurant that serves good breakfast - South Indian style.

Overall this hotel needs to improve a lot to keep up with the current times.

Location is fantastic, on left hand adjoining building is MY Fortune hotel, bang opposite the road is Chinese restaurant and Copper Chimney- the North Indian restaurant. On corner of road a restaurant complex with amazing Andhra, food and for North Indian food - Palki restaurant which is superb.

Value for money - The rooms are big, clean with a bit of odour but house keeping will send room freshener immediately. 24 hours chk out time and rooms @ 2200/2500, no where in chennai u will find such hotel with these rates and quality.

Its a 8 story property so take room on higher floor for great view, french windows.

Downside : Restaurant serves horrible north Indian food, but south indian food is very good, waiters hardly understand any language other than Tamil. But the hotel waiters and front office staff is courteous and helpful.

Overall not a luxurious option but great value for money.

Room Tip: Higher floor room and don't expect too much on food front, specially north indian, there are gre...

Stayed in this hotel for two nights in the newly renovated rooms in the 5th floor. The rooms were nice, clean and the bathroom too was clean. Must mention about the services, be a lil generous in tipping, and you can expect yourself to be treated like a king. The food was awesome and the prices were low too, but only vegetarian there. If you want, they can help you procure non veg food from outside.
The location was awesome and the hotel is right next to chola Sheraton .
Would definitely recommend this hotel to stay with family.

Stayed at this hotel for a total of five nights. The check in was quick and courteous. Stayed in the deluxe room on the 7th floor. The room was spacious, neat and tidy. The hot water geiser in the bathroom was an advantage as i could have hot water for 24 hrs. The location of this hotel is excellent ( Cathedral Rd ) as all important places in the city could be reached easily.

The vegetarian restaurant on the ground floor served some delicious South Indian dishes. There are some very good Chinese, Kerala and Andhra restaurants within three minutes of walking distance from this hotel. The hotel staff were helpful and polite. I would reccommend this hotel to friends and relatives and would stay again.

Room Tip: Choose street facing rooms on the 7th or 8th floors away from lift.
