Travellers' Choice
Taj - Connemara, Chennai is the city's only heritage hotel, built in 1854 as the Imperial Hotel, renamed Albany in 1886, finally re-established as The Connemara in 1890. It was an Art Deco look that the Connemara sported when it ‘reopened’ in 1937. And the legendary architect Geoffrey Bawa added his touch to the tower block and linking pool in 1974.

Taj Connemara is not just a hotel but a home away from Heaven in many ways. It is a part of rich history- Its Architecture, Furniture, Ambience, and Greenery add more value to the visual feat while well-trained employees pamper you from entry till exit. With a pandemic ruling the roost, this property is maintaining protocol without any compromise. Food served will boost your immunity. Food, a catharsis tagged with rich immunity, is at your gastronomic system. For example, Millet based food carrying monumental protein fewer carbs are here to enhance your health. It is specially prepared and served at your command. Chef Thomas and his team of culinary experts- Kamal, Bhaskar and Amaresan- will not disappoint your taste buds. Prabhaharan Steven, the bartender, goes the extra step to pamper your thirsty mind with many blending and mocktails. Jay Kumar from HK, Sreeja front office whose artistic invitation is a centre of attraction. Bhaskar HK, Jay Shree reception came to my rescue when I needed a printout of the late night. Aditya helped me to get my steam done out of the way. Then Khriza and Rynah from the saloon are sparkling staff. Cut above are Vinay of marketing and Tamil Selvan from laundry service. Such festival mood could happen with a simple mantra called proper training by the general manager, Mr. Mohan. You are given a wide chance of menu to choose from… Enjoy - senior citizens are armed with complimentary Breakfast served in rooms. No disappointments. Enough tempting cookies, fruit baskets, and any special toiletries needed are filled without additional cost. The parking area is ample. Taj Connemara has its own story to tell. TATA ELXSI .. Just touch a display and listen to the history of the past.
