A luxurious experience
on Dec 26, 2017
To start off, the look of this hotel is breathtaking especially at night and oozes grandeur. I stayed here for a bit more than a week.
Location: Not too far from the airport and from DLF IT Park, Manapakkam where I had to visit for work. Quite a central location.
The room was quite spacious, had interesting room automation such as controlling of lights, temperature at the press of an iPAD button. Stayed in the executive wing. The hotel had wings for Tower and serviced apartments as well. Nice big TV, comfortable bed, bath tub and separate WC and bath. Nice toiletries from Wills.
The interiors are well designed and grand. The gym and swimming pool were very welcoming and well stocked with equipment and TVs. Used the gym for the duration of the stay and was happy with the machines and the instructors. They have 2-3 gyms.
They have multiple restaurants. The buffet breakfast was really sumptuous and had a good spread and live counters. Enjoyed the filter coffee and local fare among other things. The Mercara Express offered a relaxed ambience (with a sports channel on) with a good choice of drinks and food. Tried another restaurant (Peshawari, I believe) which served good North Western Frontier fare, and you can see the chef's do their magic separated by a glass partition while having your meal.Good ambience again.
Staff is pretty courteous and helpful, although I can imagine that they would have to cater to a lot of guests, so sometimes request for things like coffee sachets etc in the room may take a while. I must mention a Mr Udit who gave personal attention when I went to have my breakfast and dinner, which was welcome. Else with many guests, one may very well get a bit of a mechanical experience.
The grounds themselves consist of the driveway and didn't much of a garden/park to explore or relax (based on what I could find). Although there was one which was just outside the gate.The signage could perhaps be improved at least to help the cab drivers etc to locate the appropriate entrance, as although there is one main gate, there are multiple entrances to the hotel.
So overall a memorable and very relaxing experience, however I would request them to be clear on their policies especially on early check-ins, as I had to deal with a bit of confusion on that and had to follow-up a bit to get things sorted (more or less).
Luxurious stay at the Grand Chola

The hotel is huge and a lap of luxury at every stage. Their buffet breakfast is undoubtedly the best, as compared to any hotel in India. Beats even their flagship hotel the Maurya in Delhi. Very attentive and helpful staff.
Brilliant location, facilities and fabulous service

High Tech room with spacious bathroom and luxurious amenities
The atrium level with the pools was amazing
A most interesting fact about the hotel is they truly are eco- friendly : they generate so much power, recycle their waste- they mean what they say about being conscious.
Impeccable service. I would be remiss if I did not call out the special attention that we got from Habeeb. He went out of his way to make us comfortable. He not only co-ordinated the receipt of multiple packages I had shipped by courier ahead of my arrival, he also got us medicines that were required urgently. Lastly he helped book cars and taxis flawlessly. Thanks Habeeb for everything you do to make the guests feel at home !!
Top most hotel in world
