Maya K wrote a review Jan 2023

There was a New Year's party in the basement on the day we arrived. Lots of teenage and young adults were staying and/or visiting for the party. I believe drinking was allowed. It was busy and loud all night. It may have affected our judgement.

Room was fine. We asked for 2 beds for total of 3 adults but we only got a double bed. When requested, they reluctantly brought us a roll-away bed, not sure if it was our travel agent's fault that this size room was booked.

Bathroom had glass enclosure for the shower which we preferred; which prevents the toilet commode from getting wet.

Breakfast, which was free for us (not sure if our agent paid for it separately or is included with all types of bookings) was pretty good. There were Idlys, Vadas, some kind of Payasam, Dosas brought to the table, variety of fresh fruits, in addition to Coffee/Tea. Overall food was pretty good, one of the best in our experience.

I would say our overall experience was good and we would certainly recommend it.

All information provided in the reception point by Praveena was good. However, Room service and basic necesity of drinking water in the room and proper maintenance of rest room was very poor. After several times calling and getting it is not service expected in 3 or 4 star level Hotels. Focus should be made to ensure that all basic necessities and equipments should be kept ready before Guests occupy the rooms. I believe proper Training to the Room service and related personnel is need of the hour. This is what I have found during the stay in yr Hotel. If any Training is required for this purpose, I am as Corporate and Hospitality Industry Coach do deliver the Training at a minimum affordable Cost.

The restaurant and bar was good, but the room service was extremely disappointing. I had called for a room clean in the evening. No one was sent till midnight after repeated reminders, and then the management says that room service isn't available after 12, and that the room needs no cleaning as I was checking out the next morning. Chose your hotel visely.

Just a one day business trip but found truly value for the money. Express check in experience with comfortable room. Sadly I haven't try the new bar. Room service food quickly served with delicious taste. Hopefully next time I would like to try with church view room on higher floor. All over nice experience.

A month ago, I travelled to Chennai for some professional work for a week. The meetings were organized in Fortel, Egmore.

I have to say, I had the best experience staying in the hotel. The ambiance is superlative, food prepared over there is delicious.

The staff were co-operative, helpful. A token of appreciation for General Manager of a hotel, Ms. Geeta Somashekaran - she hosted us so well, ensured every guest's needs were taken care of, and the services were upto a great mark.

Rooms are perfectly organized, absolutely spic and span. I hope I can travel to chennai in the near future so that I get to stay in Fortel again.

I would highly recommend everyone - who are planning to travel to Chennai for business purpose, to stay in Fortel, Egmore, to witness the beauty and experience their wonderful services. They are worth your money.
