Taj Taj Connemara, Chennai

Taj Connemara

If the Taj Connemara, Chennai could speak, it would tell you tales from its history, the place became a household name across the globe, for it was here where the blue-blooded indulged and entertained.But little did anyone know how history would shape the fate of the entire colonial empire, and this small but significant beginning of it. As the presidency of Madras became the metropolitan of Chennai, the iconic Connemara was entrusted into the hands of the Taj Management in 1984. Today, this symbolic hotel has been carefully restored to its premier status with influences inspired by the past and present. Enter the grand lobby through a foyer flanked by sepia-toned memories of a regal past. The refurbished grand wooden staircase embellished with South Indian stonework pays homage to the rich design culture of Chennai. Right across this, standing tall amidst the muted tones is the centuries-old brass statue of Shiva & Parvati amidst an aura of glittering deepams. The original lattice ceiling complements the Carrera marbled floor which paves the way to the personalised reception desks for a quick, efficient check-in. Business travelers will find themselves conveniently close to most of the city’s business districts, while leisure travelers will find exhilaration in the city’s cultural offerings. The Taj Connemara, Chennai has many stories to enthrall you with, and you may be inspired to create a tamer version of your very own, here.

An unexpected oasis in an ocean of traffic
We felt at home as soon as we got the first smile at the door and the experience continued during our stay. The room, the restaurants, the huge breakfast, the Raintree dinner were all well above our expectations.

A beautiful hotel with an interesting heritage,and wonderful guest-centered staff.
I was involved in providing a business related workshop in the hotel. The success of this venture, and the sense of fun we shared with our clients, was greatly enhanced by the commitment of your staff who went to the extra-mile to ensure that we had a memorable stay. Despite your wonderful building and facilities, your staff are your most valuable asset. I want to thank everyone of your management and staff, those at the front of the hotel and in the reception desk area, business centre, Verandah staff, Raintree restaurant and everyone involved upstairs preparing and servicing our rooms. Thank you, one and all, your work is really appreciated, it make a great difference. It is a small point but I need to comment on the relatively high prices for alcohol in your bars and restaurants. It would have been nice to avail of a 'happy hour' or similar prices on an eveening after working a long day. The wine offered is of pretty standard quality, however the prices charged are hard to understand. I realise that you have to import, even the local beer is relatively expensive. Thanks again for your warm hospitality, Richard A.
