The Residency

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 5, 2013

I am a regular visitor to The Residency located in G.N Chetty Road T Nagar Chennai for the past 3 yrs and I've been staying for a day or two quite often. The stay is really nice and so are the staff, in the end I was almost sorry to leave.Upon arriving I found myself in a valley of smiles starting from the General Manager till the room attendant . Entering the room, it was clean and quiet (couldn't hear a noise). One special thing I noticed in this hotel is once you enter the room after check in, the room would be already chill even before the AC is on. The bathroom is also spacious and very clean. The shower seems to be bigger than my house.
The bed was one thing that if I could take him home, I would have done. Hard in the right places and comfortable. Very rich and tasty breakfast, I love delicious south Indian Idly and Pongal, and I found the best around. With each breakfast I became more spoiled.
These are the things that made me enjoy my stay at this hotel, but my warmest congratulations to the hotel for their choice of personnel. They know how to really make you feel at home, and if you need anything it is like asking a family member. Congratulations from the heart, you were fantastic.

Stayed while during a business trip. Can recommend this to anyone as the experience was exemplary on all counts.

Centrally located in Chennai city, this is an ideal base if work requires you to travel around the city. The rooms are clean and very tastefully furnished. Food and service also hit the spot, the buffet breakfast is well worth it although the tables sometime tend to fill up.

had an apportunity to stay in the metropolition too in chennai but this time made myself up for this place and trust me guys it was a gud choice, I happened to stay over my business trip and being valentines day did not get the normal suite and appened to stay at the suite. the suite was quite good with a masage chair and a massive hall. the service and the food both get a thumps up from me. In total a gud hotel.

Room Tip: There are tow residency hotels one , other one is a residency tower. Choose the road side view rooms

This is one of the comfortable hotels to stay in Chennai at a decent price. The rooms are as good as any of the Top hotels. You are assured of a comfortable stay and a sound sleep. The hotel is at a good location. The room service is very good and the food is tasty. The buffet breakfast is good and if you have to catch an early morning flight, they pack the breakfast for you as well. This hotel is well known so if you are new to Chennai and do not speak Tamil, the auto drivers will take you to the place even if you just tell them the hotel name and the location. Kudos for the good management .

Nice rooms good location. Fairly good service from the staff. We only had the buffet food in the main lounge restaurant which was pretty decent. Wide selection of vegetarian food.
This was my second visit to the same hotel - previous trip was about 7 years ago. Hotel has been kept generally well and the rooms, while slightly small, are very comfortable and well appointed. Some finishing seems to be coming apart (light fitting in the bathroom came apart and fell into the sink one day and the latch to the door kept getting stuck preventing an exit from the room - I hope this has been rectified as I informed the reception about this.) The couch in the attached room looked fairly worn in but nothing too concerning.
Main reception seemed quite busy and they forgot to arrange for something despite being told the day before but the hotel made up for it in the end. Location is pretty good as proximity to main shopping areas close by the 3-wheelers.
Overall a pretty good hotel to stay in.

For the past eleven years I have been placing groups of Australian health workers, sometimes upward of 35 people, in several hotels around India including the Residency in T.Nagar Chennai. There is no question that this hotel is superior. They provide an unrivalled service, flexibility to our needs and a friendliness beyond what you might expect from a big city hotel anywhere. The rooms are well maintained, nicely appointed and comfortable. Probably one of the greatest recommendations I can give the Residency Hotel is for its food, particularly the masala prawns in the Coffee Shop.
