I have previously stayed at the Radisson Blu Chennai due to its proximity to Chennai airport, particularly handy when arriving into Chennai on one of the many after-midnight flights. The hotel car was waiting for me just outside the arrivals area and the driver was quick to collect his car. Already prepared were my check in documents, so I only had to complete any missing details. My room key card was already available meaning that as soon as I arrived at hotel reception, I simply had to hand them the completed documents and my passport and I was checked in and in my room within a matter of minutes. At 1:30am/2am, this level of service is very welcome.
The porter quickly showed me to my room, indicating where light switches, mini bar etc were located.
The deluxe room was very clean, comfortable and quiet with all necessary toiletries, complimentary bottled water and other amenities. Nice extras included some fresh fruit, cookies, and discount vouchers to the onsite spa - a shame I wasn't staying long enough to utilise them.
Breakfast offered a good choice of Indian, Western and Asian choices and there were more staff than patrons so service was very attentive. Check out was again very quick and easy and my airport transfer driver was very courteous and efficient. Cannot fault my stay - I will certainly stay here again.
I have also stayed at the Trident Hotel a few doors down which is more modern and also excellent, but the Radisson is usually cheaper.
I was to stay only for a night. The driver who picked me up (Free pickup) was jerky and that was the only slightly unpleasant experience. Checkin was quick. The room was nice. Dinner at Samudra was brilliant. Checkout at 5 AM in the morning was instantaneous
We arrived late in the night and we quickly taken to the room. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms had all amenities expected of a top rated hotel. We ordered room service and the rates were nominal. Great hotel and staff!!!
