“Better than many here suggest.”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

The rooms were nothing special but they were certainly clean and comfortable.
The food experience was certainly better than many other hotels we stayed in.
A choice of restaurants and the food was served hot whereas in many other hotels (buffet style)
the food was often tepid and sometimes even cold.
The Kingfisher beer was indeed almost the most expensive ( with the exception of one higher class hotel)on the tour (200 rps),

I have been to Harrisons many time with my friends and family. And have been to all the three restaurants there.
Room facilities are too good and secured, they help in speedy check-in and check-out. Not only that your comfort during the stay is assured.
Hotel also have 3 Banquets and 2 bars. I feel its complete as a Business Hotel and i prefer to eat and stay in this hotel often.

Went to try out the dynasty restaurant on our visit to chennai. My husband left wallet in car and when we came back to get it (5 minutes later) $250 was missing. Management did nothing, security questioned employees with no results. Employees didn't even care. Ownership should know how horrible employees are and everyone visiting chennai should stay away from here! This incident ruined our trip!!!!!!

The main reason why we chose to stay at the Harrisons was it location. Its located in the heart of the business area of Chennai and would be an ideal place to stay for those who are in the city on a business trip. The staff at the hotel are polite and helpful. The hotel boasts of three restaurants, a lounge and a cafe offering a variety of culinary choices to the guests.

We dined only at 'Meenam' and hence it would be prudent to comment only about the said restaurant. We felt that the food could be better and the choice of dishes was very limited. The buffet breakfast offered at the restaurant is neither bad nor good. The hotel is a bit sloppy on the cleaning. The cups in our room had coffee stains, the cutlery and the plates in the restaurant were not clean. The leaky fittings in the bathroom need urgent replacement.

As the title of the review suggests the place has a long way to go before it becomes a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Try not to choose a room facing the road especially on the lower floors.
