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
