I thought my stay would have been disastrous because the moment I checked in and walked to my room, I found my room in a mess and wasn't done up. The hotel made a mistake but was quick to rectify the situation. They immediately got me another room and were very apologetic about it.
I have to say that the service at the hotel was fantastic. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Comparing to the other Taj chain that I have been before, I have to say that Taj Club is much better in all aspects - cleanliness, comfort, and service. Though I have to note that its strange that the hotel leaves the doors to unoccupied rooms open. Its kind of creepy to be walking to your room and finding the doors leading to your room open! Maybe the management can look into this.
I had the opportunity to dine at Beyond Indus (Indus region, Punjab, Rawalpindi and Sindh cuisine), Club House (European bistro with Asian fusion), and Kefi (Mediterranean restaurant serving cuisine from Greece, Turkey, Spain, Morocco and Lebanon). Loved my dining experience at Kefi. The food was very good but not exellent (depends what you have). The waiters are well informed about the food they have on their menu and very helpful in helping you decide. The rooftop bar outside Kefi is really nice, especially when you go during their 'winter', its just nice to sit outside.
I must note that I love the thoosai or dosa, which is fermented crepe or pancake made from rice batter and black lentils. It is served fresh and crispy from the Club House and I have been having that every morning for breakfast :) The variety at the breakfast buffet is quite amazing too.
Would have loved to try their in house spa but it was fully booked, and when I have an available slot, there was only men therapist available.
The hotel is located in the least expected place. It is however, walking distance to one of the biggest mall in Chennai, Avenue Express.
