At the Leela Palace Chennai, set on the waterfront, guests are greeted by a doorman in a black cap with a red feather held in place by a diadem, and by rows of bronze urns filled with hundreds of marigolds. Silver tables in the front hall are also laden with flowers; the swimming pool is surrounded by frangipani and a walkway made with stones from Rajasthan. In the guest rooms, many of which overlook the Bay of Bengal, there are mahogany wood panels, mother-of-pearl-inlaid writing tables, and all-marble bathrooms with large tubs. Steal the stationery.

Room to Book:

At 538 square feet, the Deluxe Sea View Rooms are the largest in the city. Each comes with an expansive walk-in closet and a marble bathroom. Relax in the deep soaking tubs that face the Bay of Bengal.

Insider Tip:

Arrange with the concierge for a tour of Kanchipuram, the ancient capital of Indian dynasties from the 7th century. Fifty miles away from the hotel, it has temples adorned with intricate and beautiful sculptures.
