I'm surprised more people don't know about the coffee shop and bar at My Fortune (formerly Chola Sheraton). The place is amazing particularly because of the pool side area. It's the perfect place to hangout and relax. It's quiet and the greenery near the pool is awesome. And best of all, the staff is super friendly especially Keith, Rathan, and... More

The hotel boasts of over a 100 rooms, a swimming pool, lounge bar and restaurants. The My Cafe 24 hour restaurant provides good breakfast spreads in the morning. The rooms are... More

The breakfast was great and one of the best I had during my time in India. The bathrooms are in need of a little attention but on the whole a really great... More

Stayed here twice so far. Everything you could want from a hotel. Rooms were enormous, huge wooden partitions separating bedroom from sitting room. Staff were really great. Lovely choice of food. Great city location. Pool a bit small and a bit of a wet journey to your room afterwards. Could have stayed here forever.

myFortune (note use of lower case 'm' in the hotels name) is an older hotel located near but not in downtown Chennai. It is about a 40 min. drive from the airport to the hotel but less to the beach. The hotel has had some updates but still needs a bit more work. The room was large but the bath... More

Old decor, seasoned staff, excellent service (could definitely do with a smile and greet) and lovely food. A 'just can't go wrong' combination. Very quick and helpful check-in. Spacious and well maintained rooms. Lovely bar with a classy English pub feel. Only an overnight stay but will definitely come back and stay if need be.

Excellent hotel of this class and kept clean. Front desk staff is very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast area is spacious. Fresh fruit in addition to all the other hot and cold items. Parking is adequate. I actually stayed here three times.
