“Worth the brand Taj !”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

What a stay it was, rooms, food & service.
Very well designed modern rooms, wifi speed was good.
We did try out the chinese & the all day restaurants which had food which I would describe as Yumm! Its great to get a room checkin for a hotel which isnt a 5* and more so the speed of service and attentiveness showed the eagerness of the staff to make the hotel a success.
While breakfast is a buffet, but the service is like ala-carte with the folks making fresh dosas n uttapams :)... Exceptional service, sometimes one wonders ...am I in India !
Its only 3 months NEW so, yes just go there !

Room Tip: If you are travelling as a family ask for adjoining rooms.

I stayed at the gateway hotel and found it to be quite a nice experience.

The people were very courteous, the rooms were nice and comfortable and the food was decent. The breakfast was definitely a notch better than the gateway in Bangalore.

All in all a good place to go to

Amazing service and warm hospitality are on the top of my mind when I think about my stay. The food was also good. The swimming pool is beautiful but felt a bit suffocated in the gymnasium. Mahabalipur as well as Marina beach are closer to hotel and so is IT park.

Was on Business trip to Chennai and stayed 10 nights.
Super pick-up and delivery to Airport.
The staff was super!
I has been my best stay in India i ever had.
The hotel is new, and the 2 restaurants in the hotel are very good, actually the Chinese was fantastic.
The food is adjusted to help Europeans, but still has the Indian flair.

Room Tip: Get a room in the rear of the building, there you do not get the noise from the ITExpressWay(OMR)

A new hotel that recently opened in Aug. The stay was pleasant. Nothing fantastic about the room, however the staff there are super warm. There are 2 restaurants in this hotel, I'll personally recommend the Chinese restaurant (Sian).

I stayed in this hotel during a a business trip. The service is incredible : staff very nice, open, friendly and always ready to help you efficiently. They are very educated and create a warm atmosphere.
The room was very comfortable. I just struggle a little bit to manage by myself the AC ( but I have never managed it in any place)
Good cuisine. they have a "europeanized" menu that they usually give to foreigners as they fear they might not manage the spicy cuisine. If you want to taste local food, I recommend to ask for the Indian menu ( the green one) in the buzz restaurant.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with view on the pool - Other are a bit noisy in the morning

We visited this new hotel and had lunch in their speciality Chinese restaurant Sian. We have been to most of the well known Chinese restaurants in Chennai including the one in the oldest Taj hotel in the city. But Sian was a pleasant surprise .Food quality was great. Presentation and services were equally impressive. Chef, Mr Ashwani Pandey was personally interacting with all guests and we were very much impressed by his food and menu ideas. In fact this young and innovative chef reminded us of Nisikant Panigrahi of Beyond Indus at Taj Clubhouse which is already known as one of the best restaurant in the city. Sian is a new restaurant in a new hotel of Taj group . It has all the ingredients ( Innovative chef, great variety and quality of food, young and energetic staff , nice décor ) for emerging as the best known Chinese restaurant in this city.
