In a city where star-hotel prices seem a little over the top, The Residency Towers is worth every rupee. Its right next to the super expensive GRT and is actually a better place to stay. Most attractive is their 24hr checkout, which means u get to stay for the whole day that you pay as opposed to getting conned into having to pay more regarless of when you check in. Also, its rather kitch with its art-deco features and there is a 24hr cafe that serves fantastic South Indian coffee. Fingers crossed that they dont rise their prices soon!

My husband and me (both 25) stayed at this hotel for one week at the beginning of December. We had a wonderful and pleasant stay!!
The hotel was very nice and new!! Very kind staff!!!
The room (a contemporary standard room on the 11th floor) was big, clean and well furnished. Its bath even had shower panel to separate the shower from the rest of the bathroom (which it’s not common in Indian hotels)!
I must tell you that in the moment you book, you can choose the kind of standard room you want: Victorian decoration, Elegant decoration or Contemporary decoration (all at the same prize, it depends on what you like more). There are also suites, of course.

The restaurants:
- Main Street is a buffet wonderful for having breakfast, which is our case was included in the price. You could have Indian breakfast or continental breakfast: we even ordered fried eggs!! For the rest of the meals you can also go to this buffet and have lunch or dinner at a good price-quality value.
- The Crown is a high quality restaurant on the roof-top of the hotel (floor 20th), where you can have dinner in a big and nice terrasse while somebody plays the piano for the guests. Wonderful!! Don’t miss the chance to eat there! Indian and continental food: you can find non-spicy meals!! Very good price-quality value! You need to book in advanced (if the reservation is for 2, the same day in the morning will be enough)!
- Bike & Barrel is another restaurant which also operates as a bar during the day (even during the night). You can have there all kind of meals, even Mexican (but in the Indian way!). You can also find non-spicy food.
- The Southern Aromas is a tipycal Indian vegetarian restaurant but we didn’t try it.

The room service:
At any time, you can order food from your room at a cheap price (I meant, comparing to prices you are charged in Europe for this kind of services). You can even order meals that are not in the menu you will find in your room. Service is very kind and educated.

Drinks:
Advice 1: Beer bottles are 600 mL
Advice 2: Eventhough food is much cheaper than in Europe, alcoholic drinks are as expensive as in Europe or more.

Swimming pool:
Always perfect and clean. Use for free. There was nobody during its opening hours because the hotels seems to be more oriented to business guest and of course, they have no time to go to the swimming pool during the day!

The regret: The travel office in the hotel. They try to steal you the money for a taxi all the time and they try to take advantatge of your hurry! Just get the phone number of the company “Fast Track” at the reception, order a taxi and you will have it on time and at a good price!

We would repeat our experience in Residency Towers for sure!!! Best hotel in Town also in opinion of our Indian friends residents in Chennai!

We stayed for two nights in this hotel and enjoyed it. It has all the usual commodities of a modern hotel and the staff is friendly. It is a short rickshaw ride (RS 50) away from convenient locations in the centre. The South Indian restaurant in the hotel serves very good food and we only regret that we eat there only once.

Without doubt this is one of the best values in hotels in Chennai.

I have stayed at several hotels in Chennai and this is probably the best, beating even Marriot and GRT at twice the price.

The staff are very friendly. The (deluxe) rooms are very comfortable - it seems like they have tried to think of everything that would make your stay better.

The only thing I wasn't much impressed with was the quality of the room service food. It's just not that great. By far the best restaurant I experienced was at the GRT Grand next door - The Copper Pot -where you can have the best lamb curry ever.

Anyway, the Res Towers is great value and an excellent hotel in every way.
