I had a balcony, safe, ac and fan. The bathroom was quite clean. A laundry service was available - I had clothes ironed but they brought them back folded up... More

I have stayed in New Woodlands a few times and this time I stayed for 4 days in the newer rooms.

But two things disappointed us: The hotel staff tend to hang around waiting for gratuity (tips) which... More

I stayed in this place for a single night and was quite disappointed. Room access is bad - you have to walk past parking, wedding hall etc and these are generally noisy and crowded. Food is average - used to be excellent.

Worst serviced hotel in chennai worst food worst service except room cleaners worst internet wifi connection its wil keep on disconnect and you need to call reception every time to get new password. And the receptionist will tell you to get mobile and laptop to reception. They will not send any service people to help room guests. Totally Junk
