I visit this place very frequently and have always been impressed. Especially the service in the restaurants has been phenomenal and the food is amazing.
Everything from Indian delicacies to Cakes and Desserts have been impressive. Special mention for Chef Shobit and Restaurant Manager Satish that go out of their way to accommodate all your requests. The staff is very friendly and the ambience is warm.
I’d recommend the Mutton Roghan curry and their buffet spread.
Regards and best wishes,
Fantastic Place for your Business trip

Had a memorable one week in Chennai while on an official trip. What was amazing is the service standardization that the hotel offered. People from front desk to room service were all full of energy carrying broad beautiful smiles. I have my special complements to the standout names Mr. Bhaskaran, Mr. Shyam, Mr. Sourav from the Buzz restaurant, Mr. Balaji, the gym trainer and Mr. Perazhagan from the swirl were all ready to go that extra mile to tailor the service for me. I could not keep track of everyone's name here, but this has been by far one of the best business stays I have ever had.
Nice classy hotel

I was there for just a night while traveling on business to Chennai - we checked in late since we had hit the workplace directly from the airport and only came here after we were done for the day. Checkin was super smooth and fast and the room was nice. It was a pool view room but the pool is very small so nothing much to write home about there.
Room was well appointed - with all the right supplies - I loved the almonds from the mini bar. Service was very prompt. Had asked for honey, water and olive oil on three different occasions and all of them were delivered within 10 minutes.
Dinner at Sian was nice, I would say a top 20% Indo-Chinese restaurant. breakfast buffet at the Buzz was too huge - we had a tough time figuring out what to eat.
I would definitely continue to stay here every time I visit.
Excellent stay, with amazing Tajness hospitality

I stayed at the hotel during a business trip to Chennai along with my wife and daughter. The services at the hotel are an absolute bliss. Very professional and courteous staff. Breakfast is scrumptious, with lot of varieties and freshly cooked with live counters.
They will always go the extra mile to pamper their guests.
Some notable people at the hotel:
1. Sikcha Basur: She is a very gentle girl and will do everything to make sure you enjoy your food. She is very nice with the kids and very caring. Ask for her at the breakfast table. The best person we met at the hotel. :)
2. Bikram: A slim guy at the reception, very polite and had a pleasant smile.
3. Vaishnavi Babu: She is also the manager at the front desk. Very helpful and responsive.
4. Indranil Ray: The GM at the hotel will ensure that your stay at the hotel is pleasant and worth remembering. He also sent a complimentary cake for my daughter in my room. I can never forget that.
Anyone reading this make sure you stay here whenever you are in Chennai and enjoy awesome hospitality.
Taj MOTEL, not Hotel..smelly and mouldy!

ROSE (positive): amazing service staff, polite, smiling and friendly. Amazing real filter coffee...still missing it!
THORN (Negative): Stink! The lobby entrance smells of Jasmine and the floors above of mould. The rooms floors perspire, the bathroom ceilings have black mould (attractive to respiratory tract infections and there is an awful cloying smell in the room that I had to address by buying 1 meter of Jasmine as room freshener! Staff uniforms desperately need to be renewed. I think the management/ franchise owner of this hotel needs to get their act together...I will not return unless I have to
BUDS (Potential): I think the management/ franchise owner of this hotel needs to get their act together ASAP, there are lots of improvements that can be done if they CARE...I will not return unless I have to!
