5 Star Hotel in Chennai near Binny Road
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 5 star hotel in Chennai 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.
