I have been staying in The Residency & The Residency Towers whenever I visit Chennai for over last 12 years. The Residency is very well renovated, have clean & highly functional rooms. They have excellent room service and restaurants are also great. Being centrally located one can zoom around the city quickly.

Go for the buffet spread, which is ideal for office lunches. A decent menu with a yummy dessert spread. Easily accessible from any part of the city. Very close to T.Nagar shopping area. Excellent customer service and good interiors.

The staff were very efficient though not especially friendly. The buffet breakfast was fine but a bit lacking in variety. The best thing about the hotel is its location within walking...
