Well furnished large size rooms. No complaint in terms of cleanliness or facilities. Only thing is it is quite far away from the city, but I believe convenient for the people having work in IT corridor

Had a pleasing experience at the hotel. I have mixed reviews about the hotel, mostly positive.
> Good staff
> Decent food with multi cuisines. Expensive though.
> Comfortable room.
> Toilet seat had stains on it.
> Iron was regular iron, was expecting steam iron.
> Room access key was worn off, must have been used by multiple guests.
> The cab for airport pickup was of lower segment than what I had booked.
> Before leaving for Chennai, I had confirmed with them about dry-cleaning but at the hotel they were reluctant to take my clothes for dry cleaning (siting the reason that they won't be responsible for damage to clothes as it has to be sent outside). I wish they had made this clear in very beginning.
> Although the staff is good, they are more focused towards servicing foreign guests.
> Apple computers in the front lobby can be more cleaner.
> Bathrooms don't have any soap holder, so you have to get out of shower to take toiletries and keep it back or keep on floor !
> Live music band mostly played blues.. add more genres.

We spent 8 days at Fortune Select Palms - Chennai. The rooms are comfortable and well maintained. Toilet paper supply was less than an American hotel but the staff responded immediately to requests. Bottled water is supplied regularly and on request. Adequate English TV channels are available.
The restaurant is buffet-style and has a fine mix of Indian (both northern and southern cuisine), Continental, and Oriental selections all of which are clearly labeled. Both vegetarian and non-vegatarian items are identified. Vegetarian items exclude seafood but may include dairy products.
The staff are friendly and extremely helpful while not intrusive. Our luggage was reported lost for 7 days despite repeated calls to the airport, airlines, and travel assistance. When this was mentioned to the staff they sent someone personally to the airport and within 4 hours our luggage arrived without fees.
If we ever return to India, Fortune Select Palms willl definitly be high on our list for lodging.
From the time we landed in Chennai, it rained for complete 48 hours nonstop. So, we have spent maximum time in the hotel room itself. And must admit that it has been a very comfortable stay with some beautiful view from the large glass window. Location of the hotel is slightly far from the main city, but it is very close to Beach and SIPCOT IT Park. Would strongly suggest people travelling on business trip to stay at this hotel. Connectivity to city isn't a problem at all, hotel is right next to OMR road and you have Cars, buses going that way very frequently [just in case someone wants to use other transport facility]
Should make a special mention about the Staff [each and everyone], they have been very polite, friendly and helpful.
Now comes the food topic, its just excellent. you have many varieties to choose from and everything tasted really good. Dont forget to try Mutton curry because its more like a home made one and is excellent.
Am not good at writing a well scripted review, but can easily say that this hotel is very good one for a comfortable stay.
