We had to attend an interview in the heart of the City.
The hotel was easily accessible & travel to and from the Central Railway stn was easy & close by.

The hotel served complementary Buffet breakfast of good quality & unlimited quantity.

The room was satisfactory with average amenities for the price paid. The reservation confirmation was promptly made by the Hotel & records were available at the front desk.

In December 2008 I happened to visit Chennai along with a colleague to get my visa for the USA. My company booked me into Palm Grove Chennai for the reason of it being close to the American Embassy.
The hotel was no where close to expectations of a business traveller.
The people on the front desk were not friendly at all, kept us waiting for about 45 minutes before allotting our rooms. The lifts were shaky and we had to keep our fingers crossed untill we reached our floor.
Food at the restaurant was OK but problem was that the hotel's restaurant closed at 10 at night which is too early for people like us who have a late dinner. So we had to walk out of the hotel to get food.
I would suggest this as an OK hotel for a short one day visit specially if they have work in Anna Salai Area.

Nice location just off a busy shopping street, and within walking distance to lots of restaurants & coffee bars. And believe me, you need to be close by to these amenities in this city with unbelievably sweltering temperatures.
The room was extremely large & spacious with a separate foyer area which was appreciated. They were however quite sparse.. TV, beds, dresser & air con. For the price, it was great value for money and the budget traveller will appreciate it especially when considering that the top hotels charge tourists upwards of 200 USD a night. Dont expect great service though. The first room they led me to.. the guest hadn't checked out :)

There are only 2 positives of staying here. One is this is the best hotel to stay if you are going to Chennai for the purpose of Visa interview (US Embassy, Chennai) because it is at a walkable distance to Embassy (about 10 min walk). So you don’t have to depend on autos ( they exploit too much, they quote their own rates as there is no meter system) and you don’t have to worry about getting stuck in traffic. The other good thing is, food was quite tasty and enjoyed it.

Otherwise it is not a great stay option. The rooms are not up to the mark. The towels provided were very old and torn!! The room was quite smelly, the helpers who helped us with the luggage expect tips every time!!

So all in all nothing great about this hotel, so you might want to consider it only for the above mentioned reason.
