Chennai trip is one of my business trip and feels me great experience. Vivanta's good hospitality experience me a cool trip in summer. I found the front of house staff extremely friendly, polite and helpful. The rooms are big spacious and colonial in style and the beds very comfortable. The pool and spa also relaxing. Overall, it feels me stay in 'Taj Mahal'.

This was my first business trip to Chennai. The room was very well lit and well made with old colonial style of furniture specially the wardrobe. It felt nice on walking on polished wooden staircase, its a different feeling. Extremely friendly, polite and helpful Staff across the hotel (front desk, room service, housekeeping, etc... ). The pool and the gardens are an oasis in the busy city of Chennai.

The hotel is excellent in all respect like reception, ambiance, the staff behaviour, the food, minibar, etc. Room maintenance and the infrastructure in the room toilet are good.

We stayed here during 4th April to 6th April, 2015. It was wonderful stay for us and liked this hotel a lot! It is an historic hotel which adds to the overall experience. The location is excellent as this area is pretty much the heart of Chennai. This is a heritage property and is maintained very well. I stayed with family and had a wonderful stay. Breakfast at Verandah is truly enjoyable, both for its ambiance and the food. The swimming pool and its surrounds make a great and tranquil place to chill out and the spa and gym facilities very useful. Overall, it was a great stay at the Taj Connemara.

It's a very old property, almost 150 years + and not maintained the Taj way. Rooms are big but not maintained to match Taj standards. Need serious renovation of rooms and fixtures. Service is top class. If you wan to make stay record in Taj for very less price then this is the choice.

I was for a lecture at this hotel. The drive from the airport is long but I had landed early morning so the traffic was less. The check-in took some time as there was a miscommunication but the front desk executive was very helpful and made me comfortable.

This is an old property but well maintained. I had stayed here a few years earlier, they have continued to keep it very well. The room on the 2nd floor was spacious ( they do have different types of rooms). The conference hall was well made up with good audiovisual. The food as expected was very good. The bathroom is ok. The showers could be better, if you are tall it is a bit difficult. Overall, a good place to stay in Chennai.

This is centrally located, hence good for business travellers who needs to travel. Rooms are not very big as compared to five star rooms- but all amenities are there & well maintained. I would suggest this hotel more for business travellers rather than luxury seeking travellers.

The location is the best thing about this hotel. Its right in the middle of the city, and all major business/ tourist locations are easily accessible. The rooms are spacious with all the necessary add-ons which a star hotel should have. The RainTree (South Indian cuisine) is a restaurant, I would definitely recommend. A comfortable stay on the whole.

This is a destination in its own. A hotel which was around 200 years old, still very well-maintained. Each aspect reminds you old age grandness of India. It was surprising to see old old so well-maintained. They have created a balance between traditional and modern times. Big rooms, nice food, courteous staff. They have it all.
