Reviewed July 24, 2012

This hotel is really modern and looks stylish.
This time I tried the sunday brunch...even though expensive by Chennai standards, the spread was fablous...added attraction was the magician who tried enthrall the guests on a personalised basis.
similarly the break fast spread was good. Fruits( cut ) platter in the room on demand was punctual and large.
I noticed that the TV has got all the channels one can think of.
Very satisfying experience

I stayed only for 1 night but I tend to agree with most of the favorable reviews. I have stayed at most of the good hotels in Chennai and also at the older smaller Raintree Hotel near Adyar Sheraton. This hotel is very very nice. Sleep quality was good. I did not have the time to try the restaurants, which I will do for certain when I there the next time, however the breakfast buffet was good. The local dishes like idly, dosa and sambar were done justice too by the Chef and team. It like you cannot serve bad fish curry in Kochin :)....... My colleague was raving about the pancakes with blueberry jam.. for sure will be staying in this hotel the next time..
Only criticism I have is that when I wanted to give my clothes for laundry in the afternoon they said they can return it next day at 11am!!!!!!!!!!!!.... this is a bummer for business traveller. If you don't get it the same day it is alright but atleast you to get it back the next day latest by 9am???

I stayed in this hotel 40 days and my experience outstanding. When I was booked into this hotel I was a bit apprehensive but after the first two nights I knew I was a great hotel which really takes care of its guests.
I am quite a fastidious guest but could hardly find anything to complain. What is special about the hotel is that all employees exude positivity and energy which can be felt from the moment you enter the hotel gates. The smiling faces, the willingness to go above and beyond is something that is very difficult for a guest to miss. During my stay I visited the various outlets / departments and I can say that there something that this hotel is getting right which the guest cannot overlook:
Kitchen – Coffee Shop
You will again see a great team here … going above and beyond to take care of guest needs. They are energetic and understand what the customer wants. I had some special food requirement every Saturday which was provided by Chef Suresh. So when you walk into this restaurant you also get mesmerized by the service provided by the team comprising: Ram (Outlet Manager), Chef Sanjay, Chef Priya, Annanya, Vinod, Sanjay, Unni, Ranjith, Nirmali, Kim etc

Up-North – Punjabi
This is probably the only authentic Punjabi restaurant in Chennai. Great food that is prepared in front of your eyes which is so brilliant. I just cannot forget the Kabab platter, Murg Belira, Lawrenece wali Meat etc. And, yes you shall experience authentic Punjabi hospitality by a team comprising: Arindam, Kumar, Debraj, Chef Chehl, Lijo, Srinath etc

Madras – South Indian Restaurant
Again, a great place for authentic South Indian food. Impeccably managed by Outlet manager - Biju, you should never miss the Thalis here…. It’s just mouth watering dishes from Andhra and Tamil Nadu is also a must try.
SPA
I did use the salon and the experience there was very good…

This hotel is led by a dynamic General Manager – Manish Dayya; who makes it a point to personally connect with guests. You should stay in the hotel to experience it..

Raintree Hotel, Anna Salai; has a great team. However a few of them clearly stand out in their ability to understand the implicit needs of guests. I was keen on sharing the names to you for your reference.
The stars in the senior team are:
• Jaydeep (F& B Manager) – A true leader who connects with guests so well….
• Ram ( Coffee Shop)
The service stars in the junior team are:
• Arindam (Spervisor, Up North)
• Debraj (Up North)
• Lijo (Up North & Coffee Shop)
• Annanya (Coffee Shop),
• Nirmali (Coffee Shop)
• Debalina (Front-Office),
• Kumar (Supervisor, Up North)
I think the above are stars and real asset for Raintree.

Earlier I had stayed in Taj Corromondal but it did not have any of the warmth which Raintree proivides..

From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave, everything & every member of staff is homely, warm, polite, welcoming and makes you feel at ease straight away. I cannot find anything to complain about even in the slightest. Keep up the standard.

Room 503 - Very modern, well designed hotel with comfortable and quality fittings.
Sleep was good - except for one thing............. - the lift is 4 rooms away from 503, but each time the lift stops on the floor, it makes a loud "BING - BONG" that disturbs sleep! Please switch off the bing-bong!

Breakfast great choice, good quality, nice service. Clean and fresh.

Business centre on the basement, meets all of your needs.
Great pool and gym on the top of the hotel.

Good choice - I would stay again.

I was on a two day business trip to Chennai and decided to choose Raintree, Anna Salai. One maim reason was the hotel was centrally located in the heart of the city. The hotel itself offered a very comfortable stay, very well kept rooms, minimalistic design but with a luxurious feel. All the basic amenities were either present in the room, or on request provided by the room service within no time. The staff was also very courteous. Both the restaurant on the ground floor and also the in room dining service was more then satisfactory. The food taste was not at all dissapointing. Thanks for a comfortable stay.

I was here for 3 weeks on a business trip and the service was outstanding from the moment we arrived. From the rooms, Staff in restaurants and the bar reminded us what we had ordered on previous nights by the time we took a seat at the bar the staff remembered us from previous visits and had drinks at the table before we even took our seats. Special praise for Dinesh ( I think was his name) who had hot water on the table for me at breakfast to go with my own tea after requesting on just one morning. Rooftop Pool was lovely and never busy with showers and changing rooms alongside. Food was excellent, very easy hotel to relax after a hard day at work and room service was also great. Housekeeping was excellent never any complaints.
