We stayed at The Spring Hotel for two days and two nights during our recent visit to Chennai. The hotel is in very close proximity to the US Visa Consulate (5 mins by walk) and the US visa OFC (10 minutes by auto rickshaw in peak traffic). It is approximately a 30 minute ride to the airport. The hotel property is relatively new, with a boutique feel. The staff at the reception desk, housekeeping division are all very welcoming and courteous. The room that we stayed in was very spacious, with clean linen, clean bathroom and toilets. The staff respected our privacy when it mattered.
During our stay we did get to try out The Movies restaurant. The hotel staff were well mannered and helpful. Both breakfast and lunch buffet spreads had a lot of options, but they were not extraordinary to taste. Breakfast buffet is complimentary for the guests. If you fancy to eat something which is not in the breakfast spread, the Chef will be happy to prepare it for you (e.g. dosa). The a la carte menu is more detailed and the food can be custom ordered to suit your palate - which I highly recommend.
Request a room in one of the higher floors.
Cons: The walls of the room are not sound proof, as we could hear the noises from the hallway late in the night. The restaurant room service is very slow, so if you are hungry I recommend you to go to the restaurant and grab a bite.
Near the hotel: There are good eating joints and restaurants within walking distance, for those who fancy to taste the South-Indian delicacies. We did not get a chance to explore the night life options, but there is a pub attached to the hotel. Travel options include auto-rickshaws that are available right outside the hotel. They tend to overcharge you if they know you are a guest at The Spring, so use your bargaining skills. The taxi ride to the airport at a nominal price can be arranged by requesting the reception desk few hours in advance.
