“Wonderful Westin, more wonderful people”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

I stayed at the newly opened Westin last week and had a very memorable experience. The property is brand new, has a very fresh and trendy lobby with abundance of natural light in this space. The food at their 24 hour coffee shop is outstanding, lavish buffet.

Service is excellent, i faced no problems or any discomfort. What really stands out is the warmth of the staff there. They are ever willing to help and be of service. and this is not just in a few pockets here and there but across the hotel. While their signature heavenly bed is probably the best there is, i can say that their staff won my heart and i shall be back very soon (next month)

Room Tip: Please request for a pool facing room on the higher floors - 6th Floor and upwards

Thank you for choosing to stay at our hotel. I am glad that you had a memorable experience and enjoyed your stay. We believe that our associates are our biggest assets and I am delighted that you found their warmth and service exemplary. Our heavenly bed is certainly one of the most comfortable beds amongst all international hotels and if you wish to purchase one, I would be glad to assist.

Stay well,

Stayed there twice already and this newly opened hotel impressed me a lot especially their personal ambassador service, thanks to Ricky who assisted me a lot.
Hotel is newly opened just a few weeks but two rooms assigned to me is with just little smell.
As a SPG P member I was upgraded to studio suite which is nice, modern Westin style.
Price is great and now with half year new open rate it's including one-way transfer and also two pieces of laundry and double Starpoints. But unfortunately the first stay just credited into account didn't reflect this double bonus....
Lounge is with good forest view but so far no alcohol because of waiting for license. Evening happy hour is just a few hot dishes but still ok.
Buffet breakfast is also ok and with a few choices.
But both times you will hear songs from nearby Mosque around 5am....
And the location is not so good blame to Chennai's terrible traffic.
Anyway still a good choice among Chennai's five SPG...

Dear Mr. Jun,

Thank you for choosing to stay at The Westin Chennai Velachery during your recent visits to Chennai.
At the outset I offer my sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused on account of fresh paint smell in your room and the early morning audible disturbances as mentioned in your review. I am confident that on your next visit, there would be no smell of any kind in the room as we have now eradicated it completely. Pursuant to your feedback, we have reinforced our windows to minimize all audible disturbances. Furthermore, your double SPG points have been credited to your account and the same would reflect in your latest points statement.
We have applied for liquor license and hopefully we should be in a position to serve liquor in the hotel very soon.
Ricky has been suitably recognised in view of the fact that you made a special mention of her.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Westin Chennai Velachery when you visit Chennai next.

Stay well,

Shrikant Wakharkar
