An expansive hotel with style, character and modern touches
From the moment you step into the lobby at this Chola-dynasty-inspired hotel you’ll be struck by its ornate and palatial design; the sweeping staircase, the marble details and the grand columns all combine to create a impressive spectacle. There are plenty of modern touches too – each room features an iPad that controls everything from room service to the television.
Dining is a particular focus here with some of Chennai’s most-loved restaurants located on-site; the top 10 fine-dining restaurants on TripAdvisor are located at the ITC Grand Chola. Royal Vega is a gourmet vegetarian restaurant with a menu inspired by India’s old royal kitchens; this could be what the phrase ‘dine like royalty’ was coined for. For a more casual atmosphere, you can dine at the Madras Pavilion, a buffet restaurant that’s open for breakfast lunch and dinner. Further dining options include Peshawri, where tandoor grilled meats, vegetables and breads are served, and Ottomo-Cucina Italiana which features a live kitchen in which you can watch your typically Italian dinner being created.
Located between the airport and the centre of the city, just a short distance from Guindy National Park, one of the smallest in the country
