Westin Hotels and Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., has opened the sixth Westin hotel in India - The Westin Chennai Velachery. Strategically located in the fast growing business district of Chennai in the Southern part of India, the 215-room property is the first out of seven new Westin hotels expected to open in 2013 across Asia Pacific.
“The Westin Chennai Velachery is a significant addition to our strong Westin portfolio in India. The prime location and the draw of the signature Westin experience, designed to provide our guests a bit of well-being in the centre of the vibrant city of Chennai, make us confident that this new landmark hotel will soon become a preferred destination for both business and leisure travellers," said Brian Povinelli, Global Brand Leader, Westin Hotels & Resorts.
Upon entering the hotel’s lobby, guests are greeted with the 35-feet cascading water body located in the central courtyard of the hotel.
