Nice hotel with poor Service

2.8/7
Posted 5 Jan

Overall the hotel looks good has a good setup. We had stayed there many times. However, with the constant turnover of the staffs, the service standard has become very inconsistent. Any promises that the hotel make to the room deal, need to ensure that they write it down in black and white. If not they will change the deal after promising everything. The last stay at this hotel was a very bad experience and we will not stay there again

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 inter-continental 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.

I stayed in this hotel for 2 days during my business trip to Chennai. The wonderful about this hotel is the location, it is near the sea shore. 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.
