Took them 15 mins to locate the booking, since someone forgot to update thier system even after receiving the mail from travel agent. I was offered twin bed, which I politely declined.

after 10 years traveling continuously, the worst experience I have ever had was in this place. The check-in is a nightmare, they have a huge queue and the order for getting your room assigned will depend on how loud you yell at reception. The staff is rude and after I booked extra night on expedia because I used the laundry...

Clarion chennai is a 4 star hotel located very close to marina beach and city centre. We had a comfortable stay at a decent price. Breakfast at the in-house hotel, 25th hour was delicious. Room service was good too. Overall a great experience.

AN Biswal (Head Culinary) does a great job. The food was spectacular. I enjoyed the breakfast buffet very much. He was very kind, and made a wonderful pancake on special request. This was my first experience in India.

Having stayed here for more than two years one thing is clear, they are lowering their standard everytime. This used to be a good value for money option till recently, now because of apparent mismanagement, poorly maintained facility and insensitive staff(mostly new but also includes the manager Mr Arvind) it's not advisable to anyone. After my conversation with the staff,...

Clarion President Hotel Chennai constituted a roller coaster of pros and cons. On the positive side was the breakfast in the restaurant. A reasonable amount of varieties, but most of all very fresh and tasty. Especially the south Indian items were mouth watering and it was a pleasure to get a variety of fresh fruit juices (not the canned artificial...
