Staffs welcoming us wth smile... Love the food specially thanks to Jerina she helps us in everything hope to visit again.... Very friendly staffs.......... Hotel looks very clean comparing to others.... All the best Aloft staffs...
I wanted to change the room, so the duty manager himself came along & showed me a few rooms & helped me shift. Great gesture & service. This was my first visit to this property & I will surely remember the service.
I had a one week stay in April; the room was large (but a little dated), the bathroom is basic but functional and the restaurant is good value for the money, though not 'high end'. If you are looking for a good value, reasonable quality stay on the OMR in Chennai, this is not a bad choice. I had only 1 dinner at the hotel (buffet style) and it was "okay". Breakfast every morning was included in my room rate and provides an excellent choice of Indian and European/North American choices. Service at breakfast was very attentive. The front desk staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful throughout my stay.
It has been around five months in a row now that have been visiting Aloft for about 2 weeks in a month. A little invisible property from the main road but when you get in, you will definitely find a great team to welcome you. The rooms are really good, spacious and the rates are very competitive I don't say small problems do not come but the best is that they are addressed appropriately by the management along keeping a log that such should not recur. I personally have been working closely with Mr. Menon, the GM of the property to give constructive feedbacks and really feel glad that these were acknowledged and addressed. I have developed a personal connect, the team knows me by name and vice versa, take extra care of even a small requirement. To name a few whom I really feel are a part of this great team are Sunita Subba (front office), Santosh (Restaurant Manager, Abhilash & Jayanta (Captains), Rutika, Fanai & Cloudy (Stewards) and finally the Chef Saundar..... Apart Mahendra (front office) has been on the toes to ensure the stay remains great... I wish Aloft Chennai a real good success as it comes with the team and the team is there to take care....just come over
Located in the prime area of OMR this place is a perfect place to stay with ur loved ones. Had a pleasant stay with excellent hospitality, utmost comfort and delicious food with lots of varieties to choose from. Rooms are spacious and clean. Staffs are courteous and caring. Memorable stay. Keep up the great work. Undoubtedly an easy choice to stay if u are in OMR.
I enjoyed everything about this place, the location, decor, friendly stuffs, the complementary breakfast, hospitality. Everyone welcomes you with great joy, right from entrance security guard to the reception desk to the room service to dining hall. There is a humble, gentle, down to earth, soft spoken manager from Food & Beverage team- Santosh Ghosh, who you will see everyday in the dining hall in breakfast time. It is such a pleasure to talk to him. The way he takes care of each guest with his sober & compose personality is truly awesome. And there is another chap from house keeping by name Murthy-he is the first person to make me realize that I am in good hospitality. His communication, eager to serve better,knowledge on the local culture made my stay amazing. Thanks Santosh & Murthy. Thanks Aloft.
Excellent hospitality, The way of receiving is absolutely good Rooms are good enough, very spacious, food is delicious, The beach look is beautiful Very near to travel to the city Located in right place
The service is damn poor. They didn't have housekeeping daily. Also, when i required transport to my office, i booked the day before or right on the spot, i am required to wait for 30 mins or longer, that causes me to stuck in a jam and was late for reporting to the office. When i requested for services and items, i need to call and chase the 24/7 counter to come and it took approximately 1 hour or so. The room i stayed even have mosquitoes flying around during my stay there. I have actually feedback to the manager but to no avail. The services remains the same and nothing change. Please do consider when staying in this hotel.
Everything about this hotel was just awesome!!! The location, the decor, the staff, the food, et al. The staff was especially amazing right from the Security Guards, the front desk personnel, the room service folks and the house keeping chaps were just extremely accommodating and absolutely wonderful. We would like to convey our special thanks to one boy Nayak (Naik) who was truly a gem!! He took care of all our amenities' requirements that we needed in the room every day for the 4 days that we stayed. We would also like to thank the front-desk personnel who kind enough to allow us to check-out 2.5 hours later as we had arrived back to hotel @ 1 pm on the day of our check out. The slight negative was that there was some repair work going on near the entrance of the hotel which caused us a bit of inconvenience while entering and exiting the hotels especially for the cabbies but other wise we had no complaints. We were even asked to return back to this hotel which we gladly said that we would if we have work in and around the OMR area! 3 Cheers
I usually stay within Chennai but had a client on the outskirts that forced me to stay on OMR. I ahve stayed in different Alofts in other parts of the world and they have a decent level of service and quirky though nice rooms. This Aloft borrows the room designs (that I find a little impractical) but has mainatined them poorly. They upgraded me to the Suite because of my SPG status but I really felt horrible staying at this property and didn't want to ever come back. The breakfast restaurant is just awful, lots of choice but no flavor. While I was fortunate to have a well made dinner the previous night there were others who loudly complained to the the manager. The owners of the franchise should really wonder if Aloft will let them keep the name if the hotel is in this condition.
