Taj quality lifts all up
We were in Chennai to teach about new ways to rid the world of neglected diseases. To stay at Taj was to be refreshed and encouraged. We used it to appreciate dear servant souls with a great meal.

An AMAZING experience amongst those who CARE
This is an amazing Hotel. It is your home away from home The staff in every service zone was just amazing This hotel is quite sentimental to my wife and I, as this was the hotel we had our Honeymoon night. When we arrived and was accompanied to our room we got Avery pleasant surprise. They placed an amazing Chocolate Cake on our table with the words “HAPPY ANNIVERSARy” Now this thought you don’t get anywhere. Yes you get it from people who DO REALLY CARE My special thanks go to Mr Michael Fernandez and his CO.Manager A very kind lady whose name we have forgotten, and we apologise for this. We will return soon because we have cherished every moment of our stay at TAJ CONNEMRA in CHENNAI Their food was also amazing along with their staff. They prepare anything that you have not eaten for years on the INDIAN shores. Great work TEAM and THANK you without end Fred And Heather Dawson MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA

A very pleasant stay. Great to stay in a refurbished heritage hotel. Lovely room; great ambience; wonderful staff service (reception, chefs, waiters etc). An oasis in an otherwise unremarkable area. Only downsides: mosquitos and the pool was rather shallow. Very good value for money.

renovated hotel with long history
This is a colonial era hotel in central chennai that has recently gone through a renovation and rebranding from a business hotel to the more appropriate heritage and hospitality forcus it has now. The staff is great and really welcome you. The heritage wing is really that. The wooden staircase and the hallways feel from a different era. And the rooms are charming with antique furniture but also modern amenities. One reviewer found the renovation to be incomplete in his room, but I’ve stayed there twice since the renovation once in what they call the luxury wing and once in the heritage. Both were renovated though with a different focus. The heritage rooms they are preserving the charm and antique furniture. The rooms in the” luxury” wing are larger (and that part of the building dates from the 1970s) and have modern furnishings. I prefer the heritage rooms for their charm and quiet isolation from the road. The luxury room did get a lot more sunlight due to larger outside facing windows but that also seemed to tax the a/c a bit as far as I was concerned. The heritage room I stayed in did have a smaller window looking out to a shaded garden area on the side of the hotel but that was fine for me.

Recently renovated. Great property that is peaceful in an otherwise chaotic city. Staff bent over backwards to assist wherever possible. Even though it is renovated, they have tried to keep the old world charm. You will like this property if you are looking for old school elegance. Price point is also good
