    Taj quality lifts all up

    We were in Chennai to teach about new ways to rid the world of neglected diseases. To stay at Taj was to be refreshed and encouraged. We used it to appreciate dear servant souls with a great meal.

    Dining room and breakfast. Bhaskaran was especially nice, not only at our table, but at all the areas, tending to everyone’s needs and watchful of needs. Did not have to ask for a waiter, he was very observant and attentive.

    Renovated historical hotel

    The Taj is an institution and the oldest hotel in the city. It has recently been renovated and the common areas are beautiful. However, the heritage wing rooms are a mix of old and new and the old parts are a bit tired, like the bathroom. My room had a light over the minibar that did not have a switch to turn it off so I tired on the first night, I didn't want to call reception to fix it so I slept with the light on, they called maintenance to turn it off the next day. The AC was also at 17 degrees when I walked in and it was freezing for the 4 days I was there, despite it being off for the whole time. The room on the ground floor in the heritage wing have awful views of a half wall leading to the garden so they can be very dark, make sure to go for the higher categories. The staff are nice and very helpful and helped me contact my Ola drivers when they would not come into the hotel. But it was all a bit hit and miss. I asked for my room to be sprayed for mosquitoes which bit me every night (at a 5* hotel) three times, by phone and in person at reception, and nobody came, so I continued to be bitten. Breakfast staff are nice, but I got answers 5 times if everything was ok, it is nice and attentive, but I was working and kept being interrupted. The Raintree restaurant is a highlight, the team are really nice there and can customise your dishes, even if you eat alone and want to try a few things from Chettinad cuisine, but bring repellent as even inside its full of mosquitoes.
