    A stay at the Leela Palace Chennai is an experience that is well worth it. The large, luxurious property is gorgeous, with serene views overlooking the ocean. The venues are world class, with excellent breakfast and lunch buffets, as well as top tier Chinese restaurant. I helped myself to a massage at their spa facilities - one of the best massages in my life. But, most importantly, the service was definitely five star, with numerous staff members going above and beyond to anticipate my requests and be as helpful as they possibly could. If you are visiting India, you should consider traveling to Chennai JUST to go to this hotel.

    Hotel looks amazing & staff pleasant & helpful. Breakfast was good. Cons, Rooms are tiny, location nit brilliant. Too many hawkers on the road So entrance to hotel looks messy and uninviting.
