  • 2.0.Poor

    Nice view, poor service

    While the hotel has nice sea view, I don’t think it is worth the price. I felt discriminated because I looked like I am from Chennai. While the room description says the room size is 67 Sq m, it dint seem to be too big. There was a balcony which cannot be used. After my booking, which was 3 months before my trip - I had requested for a room in higher level. Hotel staff replied back saying they have noted that on my booking. I was shocked when they gave us room in 2nd floor. They had some complimentary biscuits on first night and they never got replaced. While I had paid for my stay for 9 nights, I checked out off the property in 3 nights. I was happy to pay 1 night for free to buy my peace, was not going to put up the discrimination anymore. And the most disgusting experience was, while I had made the booking. The booking was changed to my friends name who happens to be a person from different race than me. So each time I call for service, they would say his name. So, I don’t know why the booking name was changed in the property. I stayed in 2 other hotels of similar class in Chennai, Leela Palace was terribly poor in service.

    Worst to stay at Leela Palace

    Nice Hotel with perfect room size. Separate section for wardrobe & shower was attraction. Bed was comfortable. Sea View from my room no 138 was awesome. Initially faced little problems with some services but later they improved it drastically and i was happy when i checked out. Good to go for this property. Overall 4.5 out of 5 for this.
