Vistana has a great location - in a side road just off Pondi bazaar.
The rooms are basic, but impeccably clean. Staff are very helpful and will go the extra mile. For example, when I wanted to buy a bus ticket, a member of staff was sent with me to make sure I would find the place where to buy the ticket.
My room on the 4th floor was not the quietest one, but not too bad either, give that the hotel is near a main road.
It's a good place to stay with plenty of eateries just outside the hotel and bus stops to take you to Marina beach within 15 mins or infact most other major sights in Chennai.
