The service is great, the people work hard to make you feel welcome. It is a friendly place. It’s a long walk from the lift to rooms. It just feels a little bit lifeless and you never feel at home. Good location.

One thing that I always remember about this place are its large and inviting rooms. Although a "business hotel" in the Taj chain - this one is better than its multinational competitors in the room size regard. This is more of a resort hotel room...More

Mujammil M
Dont go in swirl if you are a north indian or if you are not an Indian. Only local people can go there. Reason. I went there for a party on sat 04/12/16 and some local guys were smoking weed in smoking zone. I am the regular customer to gateway so I know the reputation of property, so i suggested them, not to smoke weed inside, but they ask me to close the smoking zone door because they were doing something wrong. But I didn't close because i am suffocating inside and then they started abusing me in Tamil, local language, they pushed me to go outside smoking zone. But I said NO, i wont go because my drink was in the smoking zone. I didn't raise a hand on them but they did. Then I called bouncer, management inside the smoking zone to handle them, when management came, they asked me to go outside of smoking zone because they want to sort out individually. Then i went outside smoking zone hoping something will happen good but like after 5 mins everybody was in smoking zone (management,guys who were smoking weed,bouncer,security in charge) was laughing together like these guy didn't do anything,and they were telling me that those guys are not smoking some other guys did that. I got surprised because I saw a weed roll in their hand and what rubbish management was telling me. Just to sort out and just to handle crowd. Like are you serious The Taj? Can everybody smoke weed in your property? Because that's what your management wants to say. I seriously felt bad because the first time in Chennai after 2 years,I felt like I am a north Indian, I am a hindi guy, I am a outsider in my own country, and the gateway people made me to write that. Two suggestions I want to give you. 1. To The Taj gateway If you don't have experienced working people and you don't follow your own rules just to sort out then don't get into Taj's chain. You are actually spoiling Taj's name and standards. 2.To all my north Indian friends out there. DONT GO. Trust me. There are lot of other places to hangout on OMR. If you wants to spoil your weekend you can go to gateway.

Given that this is primarily a business hotel, I would think that Taj and the local management would not want to tarnish reputation. It's unclear to me what the legalities are, however I can say that if this were common... More
