I visit Chennai almost every year,for the firs time i choose the Raintree hotel and was surprisingly pleased to be there. The service is an excellent,beyond words, rooms are very clean and elegant. So, i decided to switch my previous preferences from Taj to Raintree, and will be back soon. Excellent, simply wonderful place to stay.

I stayed there for three days at the seventh floor in a suite room. I enjoyed the ambiance and the hospitality. I had a nice time at the Fish Bazaar located at ASL.

CHEF VINOD helped me a lot to choose the right fish. I had a real taste of the buds.

Hats off to the chef and the other people who showed the live cooking.

Thanks a lot.

Had a wonderful stay, and will recommend the same to all my friends abroad.

Room Tip: All the rooms in the seventh floor facing east are quiet, sunny, noiseless.

I stayed here for 5 nights a couple of weeks ago and it was a wonderful experience. The food (especially the South Indian vegetarian) was delicious. All the hotel staff, ranging from the manager, concierge, porters, waiters and drivers were very helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We got great recommendations for everything we wanted to do. I would definitely stay here again and I'd recommend this hotel to all my friends. Our driver Senthil, the porter Vellu, the breakfast waiters and the hotel manager Ms Nair made our stay especially delightful.

I had a great experience at the Raintree. Have stayed there a few times and was pleasantly surprised to understand and experience the very high hospitality standards which puts them, in my personal view, above the premium properties in Chennai. Great place to stay for business or holidays with a very dedicated staff around. Good Going and look forward to being there again.

I stayed for 3 days at the hotel and had a great experience. The food was really good. Hats off to Chef Vinod and Chef Genose, I could meet them personally and thank them for their preparation. All the employees were well trained and looked amazing which shows that there is response for all the reviews that they receive. Thanks for everything. They need a big APPLAUSE

An old adage states that 'lightning never strikes the same place twice'....implying that you shouldn't expect circumstances, especially noteworthy ones to repeat themselves. Well, contrary to that old maxim, at the Raintree Hotel on St. Mary's Road, Alwarpet, Especially Wonderful experiences DO repeat. Every time I have ever truly enjoyed a movie, the expectations for the sequel are quite high, and rarely does the second movie measure up to the increased anticipation. I had the pleasure of a second stay at the Raintree, and my expectations were Very High......I was not only not disappointed, but delighted with even better service and circumstances than the first time around. If you have a choice in where you stay while in Chennai, don;t miss out on the best venue in Tamil Nadu.

Room Tip: Ask for a 6th floor, corner room

Raintree St. Mary's Road is not as good as the one on Anna Salai!! The Rooms are spacious and nice but the hotel lacks efficient room service and staff who can reply to your query. It took me almost an hour to get a News Paper and fresh towels! The restaurants at the place do not offer much of a variety in terms of spread and tastes decent! The lounge (Havana) is a nice place to spend the evening.

Dear Sairam1988,

Thanks for your feedback in tripadvisor. It was good to know that you found our rooms to be nice, food taste decent and Havana a great place. It did help us to find out where we did right & certain aspects which we could not do it right during your stay. I certainly know that the incorrects ones are not our standard, but in order to prove, we would request you to give us one more chance. Please contact me for any assistance and have a great year ahead.
