Marriott International has announced the opening of Sheraton Grand Chennai Resort & Spa in India.

It includes 125 guest rooms, each with Sheraton’s signature amenities and services, as well as two restaurants and a lounge bar; the signature Shine Spa for Sheraton; a Kids Club; a Recreational Club; and the Sheraton Fitness Studio.
