I have previously stayed at the Radisson Blu Chennai due to its proximity to Chennai airport, particularly handy when arriving into Chennai on one of the many after-midnight flights. The hotel car was waiting for me just outside the arrivals area and the driver was quick to collect his car. Already prepared were my check in documents, so I only had to complete any missing details. My room key card was already available meaning that as soon as I arrived at hotel reception, I simply had to hand them the completed documents and my passport and I was checked in and in my room within a matter of minutes. At 1:30am/2am, this level of service is very welcome.
The porter quickly showed me to my room, indicating where light switches, mini bar etc were located.
The deluxe room was very clean, comfortable and quiet with all necessary toiletries, complimentary bottled water and other amenities. Nice extras included some fresh fruit, cookies, and discount vouchers to the onsite spa - a shame I wasn't staying long enough to utilise them.
Breakfast offered a good choice of Indian, Western and Asian choices and there were more staff than patrons so service was very attentive. Check out was again very quick and easy and my airport transfer driver was very courteous and efficient. Cannot fault my stay - I will certainly stay here again.
I have also stayed at the Trident Hotel a few doors down which is more modern and also excellent, but the Radisson is usually cheaper.

The facilities were very good, as was the food. All staff were friendly and helpful.
We both had colds and a member of staff quickly found an Indian equivalent to Lemsip which helped restore us to near normal. They even found a tailor to replace a broken zip for us.

The hotel was amazing w.r.t room conditions, amenities, cleanliness, staff hospitality, maintenance, eco-friendliness, privacy, etc.
I chose the Beach View Chalet, and the view of the beach was amazing. The Beach View Chalets have sit-outs and balconies facing the beach and its so awesome to relax viewing the beach.
The restaurants are good but seems to be a little pricey, as far as I felt, mainly due to the increasing number of foreign tourists at the resort.
The swimming pools are amazing, thought I didn't have a chance to swim.
Other activities, games, cycling, ATV, catamaran ride, etc., are great for a weekend getaway vacation with family.
