Rated 5 out of 5 by BobNC Unexpected Surprise
When we booked our stay at the Le Royal Meridien in Chennai, we expected it to be just another Indian hotel. But, to our immense surprise, this hotel turned out to be a gem in disguise. From the almost personalized level of courteous and attentive service to the vast variety of dining choices and informed waiters, this hotel offers immense value for money and leaves you wanting to return at the very next opportunity. What's more, its proximity to the international and domestic airports makes it a hugely convenient choice. After all, getting to a boarding queue in 15 minutes is a miracle when faced with Indian traffic. Whether you're in Chennai for business or pleasure, if convenience and courtesy are what you're looking for, G Sethuraman and his team will ensure those at the Meridien.

Rated 3 out of 5 Renovation needed / Internet weak.
first the good: excellent restaurants & food. The gym is nice. The hotel as such is fine as well, except for the missing possibility to have a walk in the surroundings (heavy traffic and no pavements). The staff ist very friendly, always a pleasure to meet those people.
Now the donwsides:
- The rooms need refurbishment, especially the bathrooms. In my personal view the rooms are too dark (not enough sunlight, and not enough lamps, especially in the area of the desk). The AC is much too cold, even when set to 26°C (=max)!! The room doors are falling far too loud into the lock. I guess everyone in the next 4-5 neighboring rooms will immediately wake up in the night, once a guest is leaving. Too many noises are transferred from the corridors into the rooms.
- The corridors have a bit musty smell.
- The coverage of the wireless internet is weak. I actually had to go to the lobby for browsing with my mobile device. The internet speed is very slow (no high speed internet, as mentioned!).
- More international TV channels would be good! And maybe having radio channels, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DarshiniPal Great Staff, Helpful people
Despite some administrative and financial surprises/inconsistencies, which were largely due to the agency through which we booked, Mr. Dilawar and the staff of Le Royal Meridien have put much effort into making our stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible, in which they truly succeeded. It is because of them that I came to enjoy my stay @ le Royal Meridien and it is because of them that I would gladly return to this hotel in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jaweed22 Service makes a difference
Was in Chennai for a Day only for a business meeting and during that period was privileged to be a guest Le Royal Meridien. The service provided was above par and the staff at all levels strive to make your stay comfortable and pleasant. By all count this hotel is a value for money

Rated 2 out of 5 by Vikram123 Facilities need improvement
The room used to get very cold despite room a/c was completely switched off!. There was no range for mobile connection in the room.
The veg & non-veg food was kept one after the other. So a vegen person has to go through entire buffet to see what is aviable on the menue. The deserts or sweets were of avergae quality. The staff was courteous and helpful.
The restaurnat has diferent levels to walk through, this becomes difficult for a visitor with plate in his hand. The floor should be at one level only.
