I stayed at The RainTree Hotel Anna Salai for 2 nights just after Christmas 2012. After a long day of travel from the US, it was the perfect place to rest and relax before my travels ahead. I booked through Expedia and got a complimentary airport transfer to the hotel. The hotel sent someone to the airport, and it was very convenient to find them and get to the hotel, plus the van was super air conditioned with cold bottled water. The food options are good - they have a great buffet breakfast (indian and western food options). There is another more formal restaurant and bar, but I didn't think the food options or ambiance were all that great. The pool area is nice but a bit windy when I was there.
One area that made this a 4 star review instead of 5 star - there was a slight mix up with my Expedia reservation, and they wanted to charge me for the nights I had already prepaid as well as my free airport transfer. however, they were gracious and worked through it with me. All in all, a great stay.
