Unique experience
I was given upgrade to royal suite which was one of my unique experiences

Front desk staff are very rude.
It is a beautiful hotel but why keep such rude staff at reception. Either they are not trained or the recruitment strategy has a big flaw. The front desk folks were really rude with my colleagues. I had a same experience in Feb 2015, where we decided never to stay in Leela but I guess we did a mistake this time. Not to say other service staff was excellent.

Very Good8.0
Mixed experience
While it's a spectacular hotel with a stunning view (for Chennai) I didn't think the room lived up to the online impression. I upgraded to a Seaview room but smaller than it looks online, and can be noisy, as the bed it by the wall that has the corridor right on the other side. You can hear people pass on the corridor. Not expected in a 5 star hotel. Mattress also quite hard (not so unusual for India). Requested a softer mattress but was ignored. Good view for sure of the harbour, and the luxurious bathroom also has the same amazing view. Great pool, but a lot of noise during the day, as considerable construction work of apartment blocks going on in surrounding area. Breakfast was fine, but not exceptional. I cancelled a proposed second visit, as it did not meet my initial expectations overall for a restful or luxurious stay.

Relaxing long weekend
An exceptional hotel experience. Nice size room with all the comforts of home. The pool was a lovely relaxing spot. The service from arrival to departure was exceptional. Would recommend this establishment to anyone and look forward to a return visit.

We were well taken care of. Highly Recommended!
We received a very warm welcome, and we were provided privileges well beyond the amenities and terms we had reserved for. The front desk receives special mention from us for this. Thank you for your kindness. Every aspect of our stay either met or exceeded our expectations handsomely. We will be back for a longer stay the next time we are in Chennai.
