Firstly, I'd start with apologizing to the team of Leela Palace Chennai as the review was delayed and long awaited. We spent 3 nights in this hotel. Every moment spent in this hotel was special, delighful and Memorable. Located with the View of the ocean, a stunning 5star property with warm greetings all through out the day from the most humble staff. The moment you step in the hotel, you are welcomed by the wonderful natural aroma of the Rajnigandha and a welcome drink. Rooms - We selected the ocean view room. It was spacious enough with direct views of the ocean. The bathroom was class apart with a bath tub and the view of the sea as well while you relax in the tub. Food - The breakfast spread was best i've had at any five star in India so far. Right from local, south Indian, International, Indian, Breads, Bakes & Desserts, Eggs etc.. I cant count but should fairly have atleast more than 250 dishes. Some of the stuff that we had were the danish pastries, Croissant, Poached eggs, chole bhatura, detox drinks, fruits, podi dosa, jaggery chips, yogurt, mango lassi, etc. All the foods we had were more than satisfactory. They had live counters for eggs to order, dosa, puri, waffle, pan cakes etc. We also had dinner at the chinese / asian restaurant which was pretty good. We were initially denied a table and were asked if we had reserved. However, on me mentioning that we stay at a hotel, we were then given a table. The main restuarant doesnt offer ala carte so if you want to eat pizza, pasta etc, you would need to opt for inroom service. You cannot eat at the restaurant. The staff is very helpful, humble and ensures simle every time you pass by. We were gifted with the goodies from the hotel and my son Ruaan went on cloud nine looking at the lovely goodies. The stay at the leela palace hotel was more than special and certainly exceeded my expectations. A big thank you to the entire team for making the stay so special. Thanks, Vinay
