The room was clean and very comfortable, though weirdly no dresser was provided. I slept on a twin bed, but both the bed and the pillows were very comfortable. Staff was very helpful and polite. Tried one in-house kitchen ("The Kitchen"?), the food was good. There were some initial troubles with the WiFi, but once that was sorted out, speeds were reasonable.
"Excellent place to stay in the heart of the city"
I was visiting the city for a visa interview and since I was going to be staying there for 3 days, I wanted to book a clean and convenient hotel. Residency Towers fit my needs perfectly and exceeded my expectations.
The location is very convenient - it is close to the US consulate and in the heart of the city. The rooms are excellent. They are very clean, have all the amenities you could possibly ask for and the staff is quite responsive to your requests for anything that isn't provided - like shaving materials, tooth brush etc. Another huge plus point is the complimentary break fast. The breakfast has good variety, I personally preferred the South Indian dishes - which were extremely delicious, but there are also western, oriental options if you prefer those.
I can't say much about the room price as I haven't stayed in many other hotels in Chennai, but I booked through expedia and I thought for the price I paid, this was a bargain. Their room service and lunch/dinner menus are slightly expensive, but for the quality you get, you can't complain.
Another good thing about the hotel is the 24 hour check - in / out policy which is very convenient. The hotel staff is also quite courteous and try to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
In conclusion, if I ever have to stay in Chennai, I will definitely be considering residency towers before any other hotel. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for clean, comfortable lodgings in the heart of the city.
