A very decent hotel - an inviting atmosphere! It maintains its charm over the past 25 years or so. - They have a huge open-air reception area for the occasions of marriage and talks by distinguished people. They also have a covered hall where family functions can be carried out. There is a large seminar hall/auditorium with modern facilities. Meetings... More

Stayed here for 2 days for US visa process. Only good thing is location convenience and quality of food (not about price though). Rooms are good with old charm so don't expect any modern amenities. Avg. rooms for the mentioned price range. Staff are courteous and helpful. Overall Ok experience.

Stayed here for a night when i was on a business trip. Centrally located, very close to US embassy, not far from main markets. Rooms are big, bathrooms are very well maintained. Comfortable stay. Old property, so do not expect too much luxury in terms of stay. Staff well behaved. Big advantage is they take 24hrs for checkout, not normal... More

I stayed in this hotel from 24th to 26th with my wife and daughter. We were visiting Chennai for my daughter's US visa interview. Good points: Very convenient location for US visa process, biometric centre is 5 minutes to the left of the hotel and embassy is 5 minutes to the right of the hotel. Rooms: I chose the semi-deluxe...

Being a regular visitor to Chennai, I invariably stay in Hotel Palmgrove. The reasons are many but a few are - its proximity, location, excellent food in a large spacious restaurant serving delicious vegetarian food.

Experienced this place when I attended a cousin's engagement ceremony. The room that they gave for the groom side has a small reception area before the main living/bed area. The wash area was huge but pretty spartan. The coffee that we had in the in house restaurant was pretty good as per Chennai standards. The ceremony hall was pretty good... More

When the locals say Palmgrove they are only referring to the restaurant and food there. It is the most popular place for South Indian Tiffin Items like Idly, dosa, vadai, uppuma etc. The dining room is large with large tables well spaced out. Brightly lit it does a quick turnaround. The place is packed most days with a long wait... More
