Hotel's Favourite
The Good: Everything in the room as you would expect a hotel of this category to have. Bonus was that they gave me a corner room with windows on two sides which gave the room a really bright and airy feel. Well maintained rooms, comfortable bed and chairs. Lots of little toiletries and extras in the bathroom, something most hotels have cut down on Room service was quite quick and the Sandwich was a bit expensive but very tasty. The buffet breakfast was one of the best I've seen for a hotel of this category especially post covid. Lots of variety including many items that are not staple on breakfast buffets. Polite, attentive and prompt service from all the staff. Metro station is very close. Check in and check out was quick and simple. The Not so good: Location is very central but you won't find any general stores or eateries around. Swimming pool was under renovation which was a bit of a disappointment

Raintree has a fine dining buffet experience. This was my second visit to Raintree Annasalai after 4 yrs. Awesome place to enjoy/relax with Family, couples, friends and for official business visit. The moment you enter the restaurant, it soothes with the perfect ambience and music. It was a wide spread buffet. Waiter served us soups and starters in the table. Buffet contains 3 veg and 3 non veg starters. Starters were simply amazing!! As we are not interested in Squid, we asked for replacement. They have provided us Chicken Nuggets. Mutton Biriyani and Chicken gravy are very good in non-veg Maincourse. There was an live kitchen which serves Pastas, Pizzas and Masala Dosa. Pizza tastes awesome! Desserts were yummy!! Even they are serving coffee too!! :) All the serving staffs were very decent and caring. They'll assist you to try some dishes and especially Balaji was through out dinning .Overall, satisfied with this Kitchen

This is the first time we have stayed at the raintree hotel and the place the staff didn't disappointed our choice at all. The staff were very helpful and welcoming, every time we enter and leave the hotel the staff at the entrance say " vanakkam" without a miss. The first day we had an issue connecting my phone to the room wifi and we have reported that to the front desk and got into the lift come up to our room and within 5mins a technician was there to resolve the issue. The buffet breakfast was excellent with western and asian choices. The manager Lokanath treated the guests like his own family and hands on with everything in that buffet place. Rather than waiting for the staff to do he himself offer to take the orders and do things. We had no other words to express the satisfaction we had staying the raintree anna salai.

Hi.. I must say I am super impressed with the hospitality and gracious service offered by Rain Tree Annasalai Team. The staff in the concierge , kitchen and cleaning are simply amazing. I got immediate response for all the calls I made during my stay. Not to forget - they greet saying ‘Vanakam’ and talk in Tamizh which is sadly rare in 5 star hotels.. Thank you guys. You rock! Nandri ☺️

Dear Guest, Greetings! It was a great pleasure to have you stay at The Raintree, Anna Salai and we appreciate your time to post feedback of your experience on TripAdvisor. I am delighted to read that you found our hotel room and facilities were to be of your choice and that you enjoyed your stay. We believe that we offer a very elaborate buffet with fruit, cereals, meats, cheese, juices and deserts. Eggs are also prepared in the restaurant. All other hot dishes are served from the kitchen rather than having at buffet like dosa. This is to ensure all items are prepared fresh and as per guest requests. This also ensures less wastage. At the same time, we have noted your evaluation for our improvement and act contrite for any inconvenience caused inadvertently. In your future visits, should you have any preferences, please let us know, and our Chefs will be happy to prepare the same for you. As we speak, Swimming pool is shut for renovation and what will remain unchanged is our legendary service. When we are back with our swimming pool services in near future; it will be in an exciting and well-designed manner. Thank you for your feedback with regard to the prices of our food. They are based the quality offered and in line with local and international offerings. However, based on your feedback, we will review our rates, when we revisit our menu offerings. I hope you will give us another opportunity to serve you very soon. Kind regards, Dhinesh Director Rooms
