Staff was polite and welcoming. Impressive lobby. But much is needed to make this hotel a better place. There was no hot water in the evening and was told that it could be arranged but hot water would come in the morning! And yes, it did come in the morning!! First room allotted on 6th floor (6023) was having pungent... More

I was on a business trip to Chennai from 18/12/2014 to 20/12/2014 and stayed in Room No. 3025. The Staff - right from the Door Man - Receptionists - Bell Boy - House Keeping and Room Service are courteous but the Check-in process is slow - takes about 7 to 10 minutes. The Window was facing the 100 Ft Road... More

No views though but considering its a city hotel, you cannot expect much. Food is ok ok but breakfast is awesome with good selection of both english and south indian. Situated on main road and all auto/... More
