I booked a room for my friend Virat Arora through makemytrip and sadly on him reaching the property, no one was even ready to talk to him properly. I don't understand why they even tie up with such websites if they can't offer the same treatment extended to regular bookings. He was offered to stay at another hotel by Clarion... More

My stay was average and found hotel tariff and food costly from other hotels. Morning breakfast services were with gaps and have to wait. But hotel room and ambience wise it was very good. Front desk was cooperative in fast check in and check out.

Breakfast is ok-ok type and having less spread and variety. Pool is very small and the water was not clean. Check in and checkout time could improve.... More

The stand out feature of our stay was the meals. The Indian Restaurant is under patronised but excellent in food and service. The cross culture "25 Hours" offers a good variety of buffets and a la carte, and great service. The room was large and comfortable, however uncontrollably 'cold'; possibly at one end of the AirCon main duct! The internet... More

Being one of old property of chennai but with a massive overhaul no one cannot find any left out clues of old property except for the plaque which denotes the inaguration by MGR. The Restaurant Twenty Fifth Hour i would say is one of the finest, quite considering was they regard native customs and cuisines in naming their buffet. Viz... More

I went to the Clarion a day after a trip to Hyderbad. I was weary of this hotel; since I'd never heard of it. On approaching the hotel, the reception area was abuzz. There was a wedding event which had just ended and a trample of very nicely dressed folk waiting for their family and friends. I approached the counter... More

I was staying here alone awaiting my friends to arrive a day later. I found the staff very friendly and warm. The room neat and nicely furnished. It was very comfortable and the shops were close by for me to get necessary groceries. Safe and comfortable place to stay. Good value for money.
