Time to say goodbye to the iconic Chennai hotel that started life as The Imperial more than two centuries ago, was renamed Albany, and finally became the Connemara in 1891. It's been the Taj Connemara for more than three decades, and now the hotel looks more sparkling than ever after its recent refurbishment. #tajhotels#tajconnemara@hotelier_19@seema_mohanchandran
It's official! @tajconnemara is now open. This video is just a short glimpse of the many highlights that happened this evening. Food, beverages and entertainment delighted us from the moment we stepped in and it never stopped as we wandered from one venue to the next within the hotel.

Iconic hotels come with their stories. A rare picture, retrieved from the British Museum, of the philanderer Baron of Connemara (second from left), who as Governor of Madras was having parallel affairs with his ailing wife's sister and maid, leading his wife (fourth from left) to storm out of the governor's palace and move to the hotel that bears her husband's name. The couple had a bitter divorce, the wife married her doctor, with whom she was having a parallel affair, and the Baron had to quit. Did anyone say the Victorians were boring? #tajhotels#tajconnemara@hotelier_19@ananyamukherjee@nancygulati143_
