From the time you enter the hotel, it is a bag of mixed emotions. One, when you enter the hotel, there is nobody to either pick you luggage nor, there is any sort of a security check, which personally feels scary. Two, the check in took way longer than expected. Systems are down was the claim though others reviews suggest...

The first feeler of the hotel when you enter is good. However it soon turns bad when you see the room. Clearly its an old property which has not been maintained. The room walls and the furniture looks old and required urgent repair. They have 2 restaurants and a pub/disc in the hotel. The "18 degrees North" restaurant serves good...

Hotel aiming mostly at business people... Good comfort and convenient facilities. Chennai being a very large town, it is difficult for tourists to find the exact right place where to stay. Food was good but choice limited especially if you are not so keen with SPICES!

I was promised a double bed if I...

after 10 years traveling continuously, the worst experience I have ever had was in this place. The check-in is a nightmare, they have a huge queue and the order for getting your room assigned will depend on how loud you yell at reception. The staff is rude and after I booked extra night on expedia because I used the laundry...

Clarion chennai is a 4 star hotel located very close to marina beach and city centre. We had a comfortable stay at a decent price. Breakfast at the in-house hotel, 25th hour was delicious. Room service was good too. Overall a great experience.

AN Biswal (Head Culinary) does a great job. The food was spectacular. I enjoyed the breakfast buffet very much. He was very kind, and made a wonderful pancake on special request. This was my first experience in India.
