“A hotel on the down path!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

I have stayed here quite a few times and have observed a fall in their offerings as well as quality. While the rooms are spacious, they are not maintained well - the quality of the lighting and walls leaves much to be desired and so are the amenities provided. Previously, they used to offer decent branded toiletries including soap, shampoo, shaving kit and body talc. Now it is just some cheap/local offers. Shaving kit is offered only if you request. In my recent visit, I was skeptical to use their soap and shampoo that I bought something from outside. While the breakfast is complementary, it is boring to see that there is no variety including the music that is played. The dining area becomes cramped if there are even 20 guests at the same time. If you are on a tight budget, then it is okay, else, look for something better...may be Lemon Tree!

Room Tip: The one close to the lifts and facing the road. Prefer floors 5 and 6.

Very near to city center and some well known educational institution.
Stay is good and polite staffs..sometimes the lobby and restaurants become too much noisy because of too much staffs around..
Food not much too say..needs very big improvements in food...needs colour coding for veg and non-veg foods..
Wifi is good...
Rooms need some maintenance in wall and floors..

Stayed in this hotel for a night.
Ambience is very good. Polite staff. In middle of the city near to Mount road , Mylapore etc...
Nothing to say about food as i didn't had anything except curd rice which tasted good.

Well, was put up here due to pre-bookings by my travel team.
The inside of the hotel looks good(lobby and corridor). The rooms were spacious and large. There was also free wi-fi. That is where the positives ended.
The breakfast was nothing great. Not much variety and not so great taste.
Stayed for a night, and that night I cam back pretty late, so ordered for room service. Ordered a chicken biryani...and to tell the truth, it was the WORST chicken biryani I had ever tasted. No flavor in the rice or chicken..!!
For fitness buffs(like me) the gym is also a big let down. Only 2 treadmills, 1 elliptic trainer and 1 all-in-one; no weights. The gym room is like a small store room and lacked any ventilation.

Around the Hotel there are quite a few eating choices though.

Though it looks little old and not maintained to the standards of the other hotels, this place has excellent restuarants, the spa is too good, they have bali trained professionals, the ambience of spa is very nice, the mainland china is the best chinese outlet in chennai,

Nice efficient and well run hotel in the heart of the city. Everything that I needed was only a 20 min drive at max. Service was fast, responsive and courteous. Food was nice and the South Indian breakfast was good.
