This is an ultra modern hotel in the heart of Chennai. I stayed there for 2 nights and found the hotel staff efficient, the room spacious and very well appointed, and the bathroom accessories of extremely high quality. The food was excellent –particularly breakfast and lunch, both of which were buffets.
I was on the 9th floor with a view of the pool, but i am sure one can try and get a sea facing room, as the view is really eye pleasing. For some reason I didn’t have a tea/coffee maker on the first day which was automatically rectified the next.
I was attending a conference and found the staff polite and ready to oblige one’s requirement quickly.
The only pain point is that you have to keep running your bag thru the scanner when you move between the conference room section and the section which houses the rooms. But this is required for security and is for our own protection.
A recommended hotel, particularly for business travellers, will also admirably suit the needs of the fairly well heeled leisure traveller and the restaurant is recommended as well for the cuisine – you get sushi for lunch amongst a whole bunch of other stuff, not cheap, but wonderful on the palate.
