“Awesome hotel, super staff”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

I stayed here January last week and drove all the way from Bangalore. We were dead tired when we reached there in the afternoon. And the staff in the hotel was smart enough to understand our condition. They immediately arranged everything possible to make us comfortable which was a heart warming gesture.
I stayed at one of the upper floors facing the city. The stay was superb as was the room. The hotel is nicely located with close proximity to the most happening malls and the beach in the city. Although I was disappointed by the beach which is way too dirty for a city like Chennai.
DO check out the nightclub and the 24 hour Diner when you are in the hotel. Also do not miss the specialty restaurants "Kefi" and the "beyond Indus". The Chef's are smart and do prepare great grub. Overall a superb memorable stay!

I had stayed before at the Taj Connemara (now Taj Vivanta), so this property took me by surprise. Barely a few hundred metres away from the Vivanta, the moment one enters the gate, especially in the evenings, one is taken away by the psychedelic blue hues and the lighting. The lobby is ultra modern and immediately conveys the message that this is a luxury business hotel. Also when juxtaposed against the 150-year old heritage Connemara property with all its Raj effect, the Taj naturally has the best of both worlds in Chennai.

We were upgraded to a higher category room and it had all the mod cons; LCD TV with ambient lighting, study table with high-speed internet and a very comfy washroom with Forest Essential toiletries and a separate bath tub and shower cubicle. Nothing overall to be unhappy about.

Overall service was very good and business like. We had dinner at their speciality frontier restaurant, ‘Beyond Indus’ and were bowled over. Modern art deco ambience but great traditional food. The Indus daal makhni there was a treat to have and despite our being sceptical (after all, we have been having the daal bukhara at Bukhara Restaurant , ITC Maurya, Delhi for years and this was Chennai after all!), the chef bowled us over with the daal. Not as greasy as the Delhi counterpart but equally yummy and definitely original. The other items on the menu too were superlative and we have a great interactive session with the chef, Panigrahi. On the flip side though, breakfast was functional and good but not ‘great’ as the Marriott Courtyard Chennai, both in terms of the spread and the quality.

That however does not take away much from the overall experience and I had a great two nights staying at this hotel. This definitely fits the bill of the luxury business hotel and given that it has the ‘Taj’ branding behind it (not the Gateway or the Vivanta), one can only hope that it stays that way.

After a bumpy ride through northern India, it was time to take a break from the streets of India and enjoy the confines of the Taj. I have stayed at the Taj in Columbo and am aware of it's stature as the premiere Indian hotel chain and upon arrival things did not unfold as I expected. A slower than normal check in followed by some glitches in the service had me unconvinced. This is where a service business defines itself. If it ignores the concerns a client has then it fails to be a provider of service. The staff at the Taj showed a very high level of service and it was clear to me that this in no way reflected the standards that they are deserved of. The room was tasteful in decor and the lobby was inviting. The buffet breakfast is a must with a excellent assortment of local and continental dishes. This was by far the best stay on our trip to India and a great place for my girlfriend to heal her temporary illness. Would have no problem recommending this hotel to my friends and colleagues.

The experience at Tay was superb as it should be. The room quality is excellent with best in class service. The best part was their bar near lobby, it had a perfect setting for relaxation at the end of the day. I would visit this again.

I stayed there for two nights in November 2011. Some staff are terrific and even know your name, some need a kick in their butt for poor service and plain inefficiency. Happens in all hotels. Room service staff terrific, food is outstanding. The room service people noticed that I had not ordered dessert and brought me some, complimentary--I refused as I was already stuffed! Overall a very good deal since it's in the heart of the city.

Stayed here for one night on a business trip, and was blown away by the thoughtful & personalized service this hotel provides.
During check in, the duty manager noticed I was leaving early the next morning and offered to pre-book me on my flight to save time the next day. As it was late, he had my boarding pass slipped under the door of my room.The restaurant manager noticed I was sitting in a sunny spot during breakfast the next day, asked whether I wanted the blinds drawn & got me the newspaper on his own accord.
The rooms are standard-issue, with comfortable beds & all the mod-cons one would expect from a starred hotel. There are a well equipped gym & rooftop swimming pool for fitness enthusiasts, and the hotel is centrally located, off the hubbub of Anna Salai, to be easily accessible from most parts of town. I've been a regular at The Connemara for years, but am all set to return to Taj Club House on my next trip thanks to the high service standards.

A neat hotel in the centre and just away from the busy Anna Salai road, has a fine ambience and very practical hotel. Service is very good and staff responsive. Provides ample parking space. Lobby is expansive and bright. The Mediterranean restaurant on the roof top with the swimming pool of course is a great asset.
