“Best hotel in Chennai”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Raintree made our stay in Chennai very pleasant. The staff were very courteous and the hospitality was great. Food was extravagant with authentic dishes from South India. They also had catered for the Western palate. The chefs are very friendly and went out of the way to make us special dishes. Very clean hotel and the service was overall excellent.

Room Tip: The Club suite is very special.

I am completely bowled over by the hospitality of this hotel. The staff is extremely courteous and helpful. I stayed at various premium properties in India and other parts of the world but these guys are the best in my experience. The checkin was a breeze, I upgraded to a club room & the staff saw i was traveling with children gave us the biggest room in the club category so we could have more space. The buffet (breakfast and lunch) has a good spread, taste is good. the also provided us with some food which was not on the menu without any charges. The Rooftop bar is excellent place to hangout in the evening/night. I hope they maintain their standards. I would highly recommend this hotel to every one.

Room Tip: I recommend rooms on the higher floor to get a good view of the city.

Raintree was a pleasant surprise for me. The rooms were compact but great considering mine was a business trip. Every minor detail was taken care of that made my stay a pleasant one. For e.g. the placement of table, the ironing box and table, the shelves, etc. The rooms are well maintained and clean. The staff was also very cordial and I did not face any delays at any stage.

I did not use much facilities except their hotel for breakfast. They had a wide spread of food that catered to different taste buds.

Also worth mentioning, this was the only business hotel in India that emailed me and got my preferences before I reached Chennai. That way they had already set a good first impression!

Overall I had a good experience and would love to stay at this place when in Chennai on business trips. Highly recommended.

I live in chennai and being a frequent traveller myself, I would very much recommend The Raintree hotel to people from any part of the world who are visiting Chennai. Prime location, new hotel, very friendly and english speaking staff here, my stay was very pleasant and comfortable. The food served here is also is good and pretty decent variety. at present the only discomfort would be the heavy traffic and road blocks outside the hotel due to metro rail project work.

The hotel is clean and new. Staff are very friendly and I like the breakfast very much, as there are many varieties. As this is for my business trip stay, I didnot venture too much outside the hotel and not very familar with the surroundings. Nevertheless, I noted many guests and other people at the hotel lobby always. I guess it is a popular hotel among the locals.
