“Good Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Recently on my business trip I stayed for two nights at GRT Grand, Chennai. Its located in popular T.Nagar area. The hotel is quite a posh place, with a large reception area, with sofas to have a mini meet or waiting. Adjacent is the coffee shop (also serving breakfast / dinner), and another restaurant. The room was very good, modern looks, and clean. Breakfast has many options to choose from. In the basement they have an excellent gym (latest equipments) and a superb swimming pool. The looks and design of the pool are really worth seeing, which they told me of maintaining water at room temperature. Next they have inhouse spa, steam and jacuzzi. Infact later I was told that for room guest the use of steam / jacuzzi was free, but then I didnt have the time! The price is quite reasonable to the offerings and a good stay for family or business travelers.

I had a week long stay at this hotel and I must say that it is a ncie place to stay, especially with the close proximity to T. Nagar.

Rooms and decor is good. They also have electric food massagers in the room.

The staff at the restaurant is courteous. I enjoyed the varied spread they had during breakfast. I have hardly seen such good spread in most of the hotels I have been to.

However, the in room dining food is quite expensive and not worth the price charged and the taste is also not that extra ordinary.

I have stayed here many times on my business visits to chennai. The hotel is ideally located close to pondy bazaar in T nagar. The hotel has some good extra services like offering a DVD player and some good world cinema movies. Some rooms come with electric foot massagers as well. The staff is friendly and always helpful. However, the aesthetics of the hotel could have been better. And a renovation is due.. if nothing at all, at least change the carpets in the corridors.

The food menu also needs to improve a lot more especially if they want to differentiate themselves from the other hotels. Breakfast spread is good however compared to the Park pod where I have also stayed frequently.

The hotel though a bit old has great charm and is quite imposing. Must have been a grand one during it's opening.

We stayed there for 3 nights and have very positive experience with our stay there.

The breakfast at All day dining was great and the service staff was very prompt.

Another thing i liked about the hotel was that they automatically gave me a late checkout of 4pm the moment they found out i had to reach the airport at 6:30. Very nice of them and i did not even ask for it. This was excellent, very proactive.

Their location is excellent too. Close to some of the main shopping areas and also autos / taxis are easily available outside.

Good stay and will certainly stay again.

I stayed there for around two nights in month of Dec. The rooms are nice with a little signs of aging in Bathroom. The Breakfast was very nice and staff found was supportive. One advice for all to book it through the websites online as booking.com or else you will have to pay a quite extra charge (around 20% more). Similar is the taxi charges almost double (in fact more than double) what you can get directly through the prepaid.
The staff was very supportive and I had to get a lock cut in my bag and they helped out even at night. The food is quite good even the North Indian is tolerable (better than any hotel in South). The Hotel doesn't look nice in their website but it's better than the pictures.
The location is nice, a market (don't remember the name) is walkable though the market was really not walkable (all pathways were full of rubbish and construction material).

Room Tip: Book in advance through some online booking sites.
