Stayed at Radisson Blu for two nights while visiting Chennai on business. Conveniently located at the corner of C-in-C Road and Ethiraj Salai, the hotel despite being less than a kilometre from the arterial Anna Salai manages to avoid the hustle and bustle that is usually associated with Anna Salai.

I was welcomed with a welcome drink and a cold towel, which was really a welcome relief from the Chennai weather. The room is nice and spacious and loaded with all amenities that one would associate with a hotel of Radisson's stature. The wi-fi speed was also great. On three occasions during my stay, the key card didn't work and I had to call for help, which was the only very minor sore point.

The breakfast spread is awesome and you also have the option of The Great Kabab Factory for dinner, which is overly expensive.

Stayed @ Radisson blu city center for 2 nights recently.Despite being located right by a really busy road,the hotel succeeds in isolating one in a tranquil paradise like environment befitting it's name.On arrival I was warmly welcomed and been informed that I have been upgraded as am an member.The attitude at the front staffs was really great and I was escorted to the room with a quick description about the facilities of the hotel which is really required for all customers.Very good spread at the breakfast buffet,Internet speed was excellent ,the staff were very polite and attentive at all the times,if you requested for something not only will they bring it immediately,they would also remember to bring extras for you on the next occasion without being asked again.Housekeeping was outstanding and always when am back late in the evening I c the room as fresh as a new seems no body had stayed before ,excellent maintenance of the rooms and spacious too.Perfect hotel in Chennai city when you go on your business trips.Definitely will stay back again ........

Went for a short anniversary trip to chennai to get out of the city. I was pleased by the hospitality that i received. Once they figured that we were only a couple they just asked us to wait for a few minutes and gave us a grand welcome with welcome drink and cold towel. The rooms are just breathtaking and amazing for the price you pay. Though it is far away from airport but good if you want to stay at the city hotel. It has a brilliant swimming pool on the terrace of the hotel with a brilliant kabab place on the roof. A good weekend getaway to a commercial place.Excellent staff with smiling faces in front desk and lively atmosphere where we felt that we are at home and celebratiing our anniversary.Overall Radisson Blu cheers and would definetly be back.

Stayed for a week and was met by a team of staff who are willing to go out of their way to make everything possible and comfortable.
Traffic is not as bad but the taxi service from the hotel is overly expensive. Try other local cab companies if you must use a cab.
There are several malls around the hotel and its generally safe.
Meet the Oasis Staff - they are the most friendly and accommodating!!
The showers are walk in, no bath tubs
in general - based on Indian standards - this is a hotel i will definitely return to

Room Tip: please ask for rooms on higher floors and if you can afford - move to the business suites

Stayed here for 2 nights on work.
Selected this hotel because we were taking interviews and it was easy for everyone to reach. I was told that this is pretty much City Centre. It does become difficult to reach here because of traffic situation but that goes for any city centre hotel.
Reception staff was attentive and quick enough to check us in within 5 minutes.
Room size: probably the biggest I have seen in any Radisson Blu. We were in the business category room and it came with a writing desk etc and a walk in wardrobe.
Bathrooms were very well furnished and had all the amenities that one would need on a business visit.
I didn't use the gym but it looked very well equipped. Will make sure I use it on my next visit.
Breakfast next day was simply amazing. It had a huge spread consisting of your typical fruits, juices, cold cuts, cheese, tea, coffee and also included hot dishes from both North India (parathas, poori bhaji etc) and South India (Live dosa counter, idli, vada, utthapam etc). I had my fill of the same as I was going to be on the road for the remaining day.
The Hotel also has Kebab factory (a speciality restaurant of Radisson in India where they serve unlimited kebabs and main course). I didn't try the same as I had other dinner plans.
Value for money: Yes for sure.
Will I go again: Yes, on my next business trip... I don't mind staying here again.
What I didn't like: Too many mosquitoes in the tea lounge (near reception) and it was just so difficult to sit there and have a conversation. Also, the hotel is opposite an open drain so you can imagine the stench at the main porch. But once you are inside, it's all good.
What I liked: Breakfast and gym
What I loved: Room size.

Overall, a pleasant short stay.

Room Tip: Pool facing rooms are good. Otherwise, you will end up facing the open drain and that's not a pl...

I stayed for 2 nights , the hotel is nice , but the location next to sewage channel was unwise choice I think .The staff are hospitable and helping , the room is well equiped , and the wifi works in a good way . the breakfast was a joy and delicious and the Oasis staff are hospitable ( thanks to all of them ) , but please pay attention to the white sugar small packs , i think there is a problem of humidity with them .
The only unpleasant event is that the booking was online and it was for 2 persons , yet at the checkout we had to pay for the breakfast of one of us ( they said its not included ) , I think there was a problem in the cashier , because we had to catch the flight , we paid and left .
