Starwood Opens The Westin Chennai Velachery

Starwood Hotels & Resorts’ Westin brand further grows its presence in India with the opening of The Westin Chennai Velachery, its sixth property in the country. Situated a short drive from Chennai International Airport, the 215-room hotel is targeting business travellers with its close proximity to major commercial areas including Guindy and OMR.


The guestrooms and suites offer either a city or pool view and have been designed to be a comfortable haven to rejuvenate. Hallmarks of the brand, including the white tea scent, Heavenly Bed and Heavenly Shower, greet guests as they enter, while a 42-inch LCD television, DVD player, high-speed internet access and data connectivity ports serve to meet their multimedia and communication needs. Bottled water, minibar and coffee-/tea-making facilities are available for their convenience, with Club guests also enjoying access and the facilities of the Westin Executive Club on the top floor.


The Westin Chennai Velachery features 4 restaurants and bars onsite presenting a variety of cuisines. Seasonal Tastes’ fresh, trendy and energetic vibe reflects the diversity of its international cuisine, while the pan-Asian EEST showcases traditional Southeast Asian dishes prepared and presented with passion and flair. The Poolside Grill and Barbecue will soon debut with the aromas of freshly-grilled seafood and meats, the perfect complement to Willows, a cricket-themed lounge bar.


With 1,175-square meters of flexible function space to suit any occasion, the hotel’s 12 meeting rooms can accommodate intimate gatherings to lavish wedding celebrations, aided by state-of-the-art audio-visual and communication systems. When business is complete, guests can luxuriate in the healing treatments at the Heavenly Spa by Westin, relax in the outdoor swimming pool, enjoy a hearty workout at the health club or a jog in the neighbourhood with the RunWESTIN programme.


The Westin Chennai Velachery joins 5 other sister hotels in Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Pune. The first new opening in Asia for Westin, the brand is set for a busy 2013 with 6 more hotels debuting across the continent.
