We came to Leela Palace in the midst of COVID pandemic for a business trip, the team has done an exceptional job to keep us all comfortable special thanks to Akshara & Gokul from the front office. Their managing team service was perfect, and always ready to greet as and aid us in any way possible. The hotel suite was very clean and they had everything sanitized in the proper way by the Sukarsha team. Definitely will recommend to others!

I was a guest at The Leela, Chennai, between 07 April 2021 and 11 April 2021, and was amazed by their hospitality. My check in was as smooth as ever, and was accompanied all the way until my room by Ms. Akshatha, who explained every detail of the room and the hotel. For the next 3-4 days of my stay, she took great care to ensure my stay was comfortable. Their concierge services were also great, and two gentlemen (I don't recall their names) helped me a lot with many printouts. Housekeep staff were excellent too, although, again, I don't recall her name now. In all, a great show by The Leela, Chennai. Way to go!

We stayed at the Leela Palace Chennai these past few weeks while we had to travel down for an emergency family situation. Being Covid and unable to stay at home, the Leela Chennai went above and beyond in every way to make our stay like family. Anything we needed from contuining reservations so we could stay in our own room without moving while extending our stay, to ensuring the business center was open anytime and printing our travel permits to room service and above all the friendliness of the staff was simply amazing. The attention to detail and the gardens (rare we visited) and car service was top notch. If I could I would always pick Leela. And though we felt bad for staying in a hotel during this time, it was unavoidable and the Leela gave us a bit of safe haven daily. Much thanks to everyone but especially Saurav, Akshada and Vipin for welcoming us daily. 🙏
