Located well with very good service

6.1/7
Posted 4 Aug, 2015

Location is good enough, easy to reach to all business places but away from airport. Accommodation, I found rooms rather small. These are maintained well but my room's bathroom was without ventilation of any kind. The extractor fan did not work and that made that bathroom smelly. Just above our room some repairs were being done and during afternoon nap created lot of noise. Amenities are good and staff, service are very good. Staff is always happy to help you with smile and service prompt and efficient. Food is complimentary breakfast was good with quite some variety. The treat they call at the lobby level has good food but very less vegetarian dishes. Hotel property needs to improve, the rooms looked a bit worn out.

Nice room at best location

5.6/7
Posted 12 Mar, 2017

In December month I visited this hotel. It was a personal trip to meet my friend. The Chennai city was good and mainly I love the place Nungambakkam. The hotel location was good and it was just easy for transports. It was quiet good and far. The appearance was excellent and well maintained and the building appearance was old looking and good. The front office also good and the staff's also behaved well and they were very friendly and comfortable. The Reception area also good. The room was excellent and very clean, tidy, spacious and the location was beach view. The service was also very good and it was on time. The food and drink also available and that too very good in taste. WiFi and breakfast was available as complimentary. It was a good stay and very neat at a good location. They have spa and pool activity available at this place and it was good. They have pickup and drop facility available.

Cosy bed with a modern pool and a bar

5.8/7
Posted 28 Oct, 2014

The Leela Palace is another hotel around the shores of the Marina, the windows sight would have been quiet good choosing rooms other than the south phase, since you only see is the city link. The room service is not as expected as the hotel may seem to mesmerise the looks. The food and the environment would be a "bon appetite" for the many. The bed is quiet cosy but not the best ones. Floors with mats would have been a better option since the finish of the marbles was not as comfortable. By far it has a modern pool and a bar. This could be the best pick for a bachelor party or a couple hangovers. The Leela Palace as it says not so elegant but a perfect place for the nightlife riggers.

Incredible room

6.4/7
Posted 12 Nov, 2016

The Leela Palace Chennai is one of the best hotels in South India. I was really excited to stay here while attending a friends wedding at the hotel. I was staying in a room that was looking out at the sea and while I admit it is not the best view, it was still good. The room itself is extremely luxurious! One of the best hotel rooms I have stayed in. The hotel architecture is amazing and within the hotel they have some of the best paintings I have seen. Every morning I had some of the best idlis ever! And the staff was incredibly courteous and I couldn't have enjoyed the stay any more than I did already. Wonderful hotel - perhaps the best in Chennai.

Stylish look & good service

6.9/7
Posted 28 Oct, 2015

Hotel Leela Palace is a 7 star hotel. After the car parking, I thought it will be like a 5 star hotel and I found that it was like a castle. I was amazed with the furnished walls and the decoration. It was like the furnish has been antiqued and luxurious. I took pictures on many corners of the hotel. I was amazed with the stylish look. It has amenities like swimming pool, gym, boutiques, lounge, spa, etc. And they also provide good service.

To feel like royalty, stay here

6.9/7
Posted 5 Mar, 2014

You may not be the king or even distant relative of one. But stay here to have a feel of it. If I start describing a 7-star hotel, I will fall short of words. It's located in the right place. The mesmerizing view of sea can be enjoyed from the main room as well as bathroom. Comfort, care and food; everything is royal. The buffet spread is not just south and north Indian, it is international, rather intercontinental and not just laid out. It's prepared fresh in front of you by the cooks of the country. But the best part of the hotel is the people who take care of you. I always feel its people, who ultimately touch your heart and not the building or the decorations. They go out of the way to ensure that you enjoy your stay and feel happy at the end of the stay. It was a lifetime experience, thanks to a conference held there and I wish everyone got a chance to stay here, at least once.

Friendly and helpful staff service

7.0/7
Posted 11 Nov, 2014

I was in Delhi, as I work with an International company I travel to Chennai on a monthly basis. I was staying in this hotel in the five star suites which was listed within the hotel guide as their best room for business travellers. The room was very comfortable in every way and the maids ensure my room was immaculate on a daily basis and the receptionist was very friendly and extremely helpful. The Indoor pool was true to the photographs upon the website, large, clean and warm too and it was a great way to start the morning. I was impressed by all of the staff within the hotel, even when I asked if they could organize hiring a tuxedo for the evening they were able to arrange everything. Even though the shampoo and conditioner in the bathroom was great the overall standard of the hotel and the exceptional service from the staff was extremely good, I will be certainly be staying here again .

Although the sea view is not awesome but still you can enjoy the natural views. This is a truly luxurious, opulent hotel with amazing design. It's gorgeous. A great hotel with a grateful staff very delicious food and excellent room service.
