Rated 5 out of 5 by vik2015 The Westin Chennai Velachery--Excellent in all aspects.
Finding hotels that offer world class amenities for reasonable price can sometimes be a challenge in India. The Westin Chennai Velachery was highly recommended to us and it met or exceeded all of our expectations. If you are traveling from US to Chennai, do not bother looking for other hotel options, when you are at Westin, you will enjoy the best that India has to offer with the comforts of an excellent global brand hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sidorf Excellent business hotel
I stayed in Westin this week and I must say I am very satisfied with the hotel during my stay. Comfort and luxury was fantastic and so was the service. The breakfast was good and lavish too. I have been given big size room, AC was comfortable and I had a nice sleep. Being a frequenter of Chennai, I will select this hotel again.
A few things where I found it needs improvement are :
1. There was no netwrok coverage for Vodafone (and Airtel was feeble too )in the room at 7th floor. Definitely you need to look into the matter as its absolutely necessary to have mobile coverage for all reasons.
2. I tried ordering few standard continental dishes which is found to be not available.

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 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 5 out of 5 by SusanR24 Wonderful people - nice place
I want to personally thank Mr. Venis. He saved my life. Well, in my eyes he did. He was the perfect guide helping us on our trip home. Specifically, I did not have an itinerary for my trip with my name on it. I had an itinerary but no name. The guard would not let me through. Mr. Venis was trying to help me through but the guard would have none of it! Mr. Venis then asks me for my passport - goes into the airport with the two gals I was traveling with ... next thing you know, he comes back out with a confirmation of my travels! It was just what the guard needed to let me go through and get checked in for my flight! Mr. Venis went above and beyond and ensured that my entire team was taken care of and ushered to the right place in the airport, and gave us direction on where we needed to go once we were done with checking in. If it weren't for him, I am not sure when and if I would have boarded a plane to come home. I owe him a lot. I didn't have enough tip money (either in rupees or dolalrs) to show my appreciation of what he did for me. I gave him all I had left!! He truly made me feel like he was going to be sure that I was taken care of and that I would get on that plane and head home. I thank him for that. I also want to thank a young man who was always in the lobby (he wore the beige uniform) but I don't know his name. A friendly guy and always greeted us when we came back to the hotel or before we left for work from the hotel. Such nice staff at the hotel. I truly enjoyed staying there.

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!
