We had taken up the place to stay to celebrate my husband's birthday with friend's and family. Its truly Chennai's best luxury hotel. The rooms are cozy and it has some of the best bathrooms.

This is a new property. All spaces have been beautifully designed and very comfortable. The restaurants are good with very polite and well trained staff. The breakfast is a huge spread. very good quality of food. The bar is a bit dark and should have individual lighting at the tables.

Sheer luxury the moment you step in. Never seen a faster checkin. Courteous staff, expansive breakfast. Rooms are modern and hitech with a touch of tradition. Definitely etaying there again. Best part of check in that they can do all documentation when one reach the room, with mobile scanners.
