“"Place I keep returning to "”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2011

Over past one year I have stayed at The Residency Towers at least a dozen times. Reservation is done through their Reservation desk. It offers good facilities within a budget of 5,500 per night.

I like their rooftop restaurant called The Crown though as not a sea food enthusiast i crave choices. They have one of the most popular pubs in Chennai - "Bikes and Barrels" which is good. The whole place has a British feel to it, the wooden panels and decor. The service is decent though in some cases could be better but not complaining. They have a well equipped gym and nice swimming pool. Steam and Sauna are complimentary with their deluxe rooms which is a nice touch.
Rooms are nice though their basic rooms are somewhat small but clean and well equipped. All the desired TV channels are available.

What i don't like a lot of sockets/power points do not work or are too lose for my need.

check in - smooth as silk..no hassels. Quick.
Rooms very neatly done..
property is in the heart of the business center so is a comfortable location for business in town. Slightly far off from IT hub but manageable.
Food was good. service was excellent..buffet (quality and service) is amazing.
Check out was smooth as well.

Fantastic locale for the Hotel, gives optimum access to most frequented spots in Chennai. Also very conducive for business travel. The breakfast buffet offered complimentary far exceeds expectations and delivers to perfection. However overpriced due to legacy costs, and somehow fails to deliver on the aesthetics front in the interior designing. Reminiscent of the pre-independence Indian era of fashion, the theme is well thought of, but lacks imagination. The "zing" is still there to be desired

We booked this hotel for our business trip mainly based on its #1 rating on TripAdvisor. And it is a unique little gem, really.
We have stayed at many hotels over the years, often luxury ones with impeccable details and fantastic designs. Price-wise The Residency Towers is on par with these better-class hotels. But when compared The Residency Towers is not a luxury place it is heaven.
The facilities are amazing and the service is just not comparable. I would advise all of them visiting Chennai to book this hotel as it is class apart.

Did not get booking in the regular hotels where I stay in chennai and hence I had to stay here.
Rooms were clean, food was good with good spread and service was very good.
Would highly recommend this place.
