I stayed at the Leela Palace Chennai, my first time at a Leela property and I was completely blown away. The room was stunning, beautifully laid out and very comfortably furnished. The electronics and controls were just amazing and every little thing to ensure your comfort was available at the press of a button. Huge bathroom, a great walk in closet and a fantastic dining and sitting area just added to the experience.
The only somewhat negative aspect was that the Indian and Chinese specialty restaurants are open only at night and one cannot eat the simply amazing food available there in the afternoon. Because of this, one is stuck with room service or eating at the coffee shop. I am not a big fan of buffet meals, so this was a bit of a problem, especially on Christmas day when the restaurant did not even have an A La Carte option at lunch time.
The staff were incredibly well trained, courteous and helpful and all in all, its an absolutely amazing hotel. I am definitely going to stay at The Leela hotels more if this is an example of their hospitality.
