Ok stay

Signages are very poor. Being a heritage property rooms are located at various places. Access is thru a web of corridors without signages. I had return back to the reception and found it difficult to locate . Car for airport drop was pretty booked but was delayed during check out . Wouldn’t stay here again .

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
