Rated 5 out of 5 by GarryS Great Hotel, Great Room and Friendly Staff
I recently stayed at the Westin in Chennai. The hotel was beautiful and the staff were extremely helpful. The Gym facilities were great and it was better than I had expected. I would definitely recommend a stay in the Westin.
For a nice after work drink the sports bar is the perfect place to unwind with the bar staff making an effort to remember you and your order.
All round a very good stay. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4JCUSA Top Westin in the World...
I'm from the US and travel to many Westin's in the US and globally and I have discerning taste. This property is absolutely fantastic. It all starts with the front desk and they made me feel very comfortable and appreciative of my choice to stay here. India overall is known for their hospitality but the staff and Management here are clearly in the top 1%. The rooms are fresh and have that distinctive Westin feel. The gym offers much more than I've seen in other hotels, even other Westin's and the pool and waterfall scene is very relaxing. I have especially been enjoying the Sunset Grill which offers roof top dining and the steaks are great. I've especially enjoyed having a nice Cuban cigar after diner while enjoying the evening breeze. Special mention to Sy and his colleagues at the Grill as they are both professional and a lot of fun to talk with. The bottom line is that the staff here is what makes you feel very welcomed and I'm looking forward to returning the next few months. This will be the only property I stay in when I'm in Chennai and will be recommending it to my business colleagues and friends. Keep up the great work and attitude!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deb83 Above and Beyond
The hotel is very nice and the accommodations are wonderful. The staff went out of their way on several occasions to make my stay enjoyable. There is one thing a staff member, Mr. Venis (Airport Representative), did that I feel was above and beyond. One of my traveling companions did not print her itinerary with her name on it. Security was not going to let her in the airport. Mr. Venis went inside and was able to locate appropriate documentation to allow my companion to get into the airport and ultimately get home. I was so appreciative of his time and efforts. We didn't even ride to the airport with him as we already had transportation. Mr. Venis met us there, recognized us from the hotel and helped us out. Please make sure he is recognized. If he can be recognized monetarily, I would greatly appreciate it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Benjaminj Excellent Facilities, Terrible Customer Service
The hotel is located in the heart of Chennai near the Ghandi park. It is a brand new hotel, opened only last year with excellent facilities and state-of-the-art luxury.
The unfortunate side of this story is that the customer service is unpleasant to say the least. We were greeted to the hotel and although the confirmed upgrade was not fulfilled, we were kept waiting for more than an hour for the front desk staff to verify who cleared the upgrade or not. We gave up and went to the room just to find out that the hotel doesn't provide the amenities such as car-transfer, published on their website.
When checked-out, the same altitude was given by the front desk who argued they have to increase the taxes for the upgrade they complimentary provided us, so we would pay double the taxes if not more. When refused they threatened me with charging my credit card as is, but since I don't deal with threats and walked away - they amended the bill.
SPG Platinum recognition defiantly needs improvement.
What a terrible way to end a stay at such a nice facility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NSShah Great hotel and awesome staff
This was my second extended stay at Westin Velachery - 5 weeks this time. Staff gave excellent service and made us feel at home. Anup, Brahma, Shebin, Gopal, Ravi, Bulbul, John, Neeraj, Alok, Saddam - few names that I remembered were great. Even the housekeeping staff (Elango) was very attentive and made sure that I had everything.
