Dear Mr Rakesh

I sincerely thank you and the team for delivering a fantastic birthday arrangement on the 11th April 2014. The food was awesome and delicious. Hats off to the Chef !!! Staff were courteous and helpful. All the guests were happy about the entire arrangement. Cake was made beautifully and as requested.

Overall, the facilities and the services were remarkable. Would definitely consider Rain Tree to be my next choice for my future hospitality requirements.

The experience was smooth and nice throughout starting from blocking this banquet hall (Special mention Ms Radhika Rajiv), co-oridnating the event planning, food menu and finally our stay at the hotel that night.

Thanks once again

Cheers
Krithika

I was there on a business trip with my fellow colleagues. My first stay at this hotel was from 7-10 Mar 14. It was certainly a pleasant experience, enjoyable and we felt very comfortable. The frontline staff like Meenatchi and many others (can't remember their names) were very warm, helpful and was always putting up a smile. Their facilities, room services, food outlets etc were excellent. Upon check-out, we decided to come back again from 4-6 Apr and was treated the same way - hospitality.

We are planning to return from 18-20 Apr again. Cheers

Room Tip: I was not very particular about the location of the rooms

We enjoyed our stay at Raintree Hotel. The hotel has well trained employees. The service is excellent.

The breakfast spread is quite exhaustive. There are multiple custom-order options as well.

This hotel is located at heart of city. Most of the offices are situated in Annasalai in Chennai. One can reach any part of city from here in 45 min.

Once Again Raintree made itself one of the best hotel i've stayed at Chennai, This is my 26h visit to chennai and 8th times stay with Raintree and they made every stay surprising and comfortable to the best of they could.

I travel with my mom who is a patient, and hotel understood each and every situation and helped us by preparing special diet and foods. They took care of everything from minor to major.

Special Thanks to the following staffs who always assisted coming out of their professional duties and assisted with care and friendliness but not as part of their job..

A round of applause goes to the following staffs - Arindam, Kaustav, Aishwariya Kapoor, Hari Haran, Kumar and offcourse to the 6th floor House Keeping staffs.

Our stay at Raintree is just better than the last and this hotel absolutely need no improvements anywhere.. they are doing pretty best.

Stayed for 7 days in the Club suites (2 units) with my family. Chose this hotel as my nephew's wedding reception was held here. No regrets. Convenient and centralised location for shopping. Beds are soft and nice to sleep after a day's hectic activities. More of a business hotel as I saw many business people staying here. Also a safe and secure hotel.

Room Tip: Choose rooms facing the East (morning sun). Eastward scenery also better.

We were there for a night's stay.
We reached from Bangalore in Shatabdi and haggled a taxi for 300 bucks.
The location is near perfect, close to pandi bazaar (T.Nagar) and Marina beach.

You can take the Auto (haggled for 80 bucks) to beach and other nearby locations.

The staff was very helpful. Their-in house menus are decent and have some kid special items.
We liked their yogurt of the day which was blueberry. I guess this was the best yogurt I had in recent times.

They have a small pool on the terrace (4ft max depth) and my kid enjoyed it immensely. Pool is available only from 6Am to 7Pm.

Their Madras restaurant serves exclusive south indian menu. If you are thali/meals freak go for their their Thali. I tried their Andhra thali that was on menu that day (was spicy as expected) but I liked it.

You can try their buffet restaurant Kitchen. We went their for buffet breakfast.

The staff is courteous and very prompt. We were given a complimentary laundry for 4 clothes but we did not use it.

Sometimes if there is a DJ night the noise can reach inside the rooms (we were in the second floor). It can be annoying sometimes, especially those beats but thankfully the DJ thing didn't last for more than half hour.

The bed can also move ahead (as they have wheels), especially if you are leaning on the pillows and watching TV. Small things they can take care off.

Otherwise a pleasant stay.

Nothing much for children but some special kids menu.

Room Tip: Take it above third floor and make sure your bed doesn't move.

This by far is a great business hotel. As a repeated guest their hospitality grows on you.
They have taken the effort to remember your previous preferences and ensure that they are able to deliver the same expectations. The staff go out of their way to ensure guests are comfortable.
The breakfast buffet is vast and caters to everyone's taste pallet.
Rooms are modern, clean, spacious, quiet and bright....need i say more. Worth every penny!

The only area of improvement is their car service. This needs to be reviewed by the hotel management as their rates are ridiculously high and though it is claimed to be managed by an external entity, they need to do more especially for repeat guests who utilise this service.

Room Tip: Review their Website or call them for the best deals. The rooms on the 7th floor and above are gre...
