Reviewed March 28, 2010

Please stay away from this hotel. This one looks great from outside, however the rooms smells like a old den. Carpet stinks. Their customer the worse I have ever seen in this type of hotels.

There are lot of other options in Chennai, stay in Marriott instead this one.

Stayed in the Meridien Chennai for two nights. Lobby ok. Exterior of the hotel - hmm - tatty to name it (example: when the walls were painted the contractors obviously did not know about adhesive tape to protect the window frames from colour spots).

The room was old and smelly. Furniture was used up almost completely, electrical insulation from the 1970ies, old TV and the room was not really clean.

The breakfast was average to poor - the service was bad. The cook forgot my order on all two occasions. Orange juice was available only in Tetra packs - not fresh. The staff was ripping the plates off the table before you could empty your mouth. Not a great esperience.

The discounted rate was EURO 270 for two nights including tax. Don`t forget the tax in India. This has always been an issue when discussing room rates.

Final verdict: Not a 5-star place. Not at all.

I was on a short business visit (conference) to Chennai when I stayed here. Le-Meridien has all the facilities which is needed to host a summit/conference. One important thing that I would definitely like to mention is the food, most of the menu items were awesome and new to me. I have never has such good unique food in any of the other five star hotels I stayed across India. Excellent hospitality and room service too…
