“A fantastic holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2013

My husband and I were extremely impressed with the professionalism, service and overall experience at the Raintree Hotel, Anna Salai. The staff there made us feel very welcome and were very helpful and accommodating. The spa at the top level of the hotel provided the best massage I have ever had and the therapist was incredible. The rooms, pool, rooftop bar and restaurants were all well kept and run. We were lucky enough to attend a function in one of the function rooms on the first level (see photos) - and wow! The food was perfectly crafted and artfully designed, tasted beautiful and thoroughly impressed us. In fact, all food from the restaurants in the hotel (headed up by chef Mark Crocker) was fantastic, offering a range of cuisines including Indian, 'oriental', and traditional continental. Karaoke night was a lot of fun too! Overall, a very pleasing, relaxing and enjoyable stay. Would recommend to anyone and would definitely return!

A stylish, sleek and modern facility. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, service is excellent and very well balanced, and not as overbearing as I've experienced in other hotels. (In fact, a member of the housekeeping staff noticed I'd left behing a charger case at check-out and made the effort to seek me out to return it).

I stayed in a street-facing room on a mid-level floor, so there was quite a bit of street noise, but not to a point where it made the stay unpleasant. For a quick, 2-night stay for business travel, this hotel perfectly suited my needs and I would definitely stay here again.

Visiting Chennai for wife's Conference and just on a hunch booked this Hotel. I must say the brightest part of our stay in Chennai was The Raintree.
You walk in to a very Modern hotel, clean, fresh and rejuvenating!!
Staff are simply superb. Service is delivered with a smile and a lot of attention to detail.
The food is fantastic!! I understand the restaurant called Kitchen is ranked at 4# in Chennai I felt it should be at 1#.
Kids enjoyed it thoroughly. Will visit Chennai again just for this place!!
Well done Raintree!! Take a bow!!

There are very few city hotels that can blow you away with an all-round show - most have their strengths, and then a few weaknesses - but the Raintree is an exception in that it excels in every possible manner. The rooms are well-lit, airy, spacious, well appointed and extremely well-maintained, while the food is awesome to say the least. It has one of the best breakfast buffet spreads I've come across, while dining at most times of the day in any of the many restaurants is equally fulfilling.

Service is unobtrusive and mind-blowing - it is always there, but it remains in the background without the ingratiating "hope you're enjoying your stay with us, sir" that you hear often elsewhere. This is service as it should be, genuine - and not in-the-face and fake. The only forced part seems to be the vanakkams thrown at you from everywhere :)

Overall, its been a great experience. This review has been re-submitted as I had one less-than-great experience during checkout, but this was taken care of by the GM as soon as he read about the issue on the review. I received a full refund almost immediately, and a personal letter from the GM.

When they act so quickly on a grievance after you have left the property, you know you just have to stay in such a place.

I have stayed at RainTree, Annasalai two times over the last 2 years. The service is impeccable and rooms are maintained in excellent condition.
The location cannot be beat as it bang in central chennai in the middle of it all. The inclusive breakfast at Lobby restaurant has a lot of variety. There is also a lounge/bar, and 2 additional restaurants.
This in an excellent choice for business travellers. Leisure travellers will still enjoy the hotel but may find the prices are a little on the high side. But again for what you get in return is a bargain.
