Although I do appreciate overall service and the hospitality of The Residency and this write up is not against anyone. But I thought I should write on the improvement areas which hotel like Residency should not ignore. I had stayed recently from Jan 18th to 20th at Chennai and Jan 20th was my check out; as everyone is aware Jallikkattu...

Located in the centre of the city, the hotel is both comfortable and convenient. The 24 hour check in/check out means that you're not hassled to leave early.

We originally were staying on 5th floor but we had a small mosquito problem which was quickly rectified as we were moved to the 9th floor executive rooms. The rooms were very nice and comfortable. The cleaners were very kind and did a fantastic job and I would like to specially mention Saranraj who was both friendly and patient.

Before reaching Chennai, I sent the room tariff to the hotel through RTGS, but the hotel took 3 days to confirm receipt of money. But the check-in was fast,...
