"Best hotel in Chennai, by a mile. "
Raintree is an excellent hotel. Easy check in, super-friendly staff, all around, reception, housekeeping, restaurant, etc. I requested half board, breakfast and another meal, usually dinner. The food/service was very good. TV is very entertaining, room is very comfortable, pillows and all, bathroom is fully equipped, temperature control is perfect, basically the works.
They deliver a selection of fresh fruits, I believe daily if you request it--I only did once I think. They also give a few bottles of water everyday. They give you free laundry--4 pieces per day, you get charged for the 5th+. The also give you free rides from and to the airport, which was very nice. They gym is excellent, as close to a complete gym as possible, new equipment. I hadn't tried the spa buy it looked nice too.
Location is good too, depending on why you're in the city. The only negative is perhaps the wifi. The complementary is less than half an MB I think. I had a 50 GB roaming from home so I wasn't using theirs. The pay one might be better.
I had said on a previous review that the lobby was a bit warm, but perhaps I had just arrived from outside and was feeling too hot. They don't keep it at room temperature, understandably, probably to save energy.
All in all, it's a wonderful hotel. Don't think of staying anywhere else.
