Pros :

Complimentary drop to both the OTP and consulate - one of a kind offer...
Fresh and good food for breakfast which his inclusive. Dinner order room service was nice too.
Good and courteous staff.

Cons
Rooms are tidy but needs upkeep.

Chose this place as it is very near to the U S Consulate, and so is ideal for visa related work. They offered a free drop to the consulate as part of the deal , however they will provide you with an auto ride !! Be warned, the auto chap will charge you double the rate for the way back, and that is not part of the free ride !!! Please make sure you talk about the return trip, before you hop on !! Even the hotel will not warn you about this return trip scam.
Other than that glitch, the place is clean and very close to all you want in Chennai. Lovely location, and if u want to party, the Zara pub is next door, and belongs to them. Other hotels, as Don Pepe / mexican, a Chinese hotel, and Hot breads where tea and sandwiches are available nearby.. The ITC Chola is across the road !! Great place to have a quiet meal ,plenty of old world charm in Chola.

Overall a very good hotel...

The staff is well behaved and the hotel itself has two or more restaurants providing Chinese and North Indian in Chennai with discount.
The Chinese food was excellent...


However some setbacks...
They said that the breakfast is complementary, which by default means buffet. NBut they only give omlet or idli for breakfast.

Pros:
1. Location - 1.5 km from US Consulate. and 2 km from Marina Beach
2. Food - Although overpriced, food comes from other restaurants in the same building like Copper Chimney, Zaras and a Chinese restaurant. North Indian & Chinese cuisine is really mouthwatering

Cons:
1. Service - Really bad. If the hotel is full, you can order the food and expect it delivered in 60-90 min. Any order other than food will take minimum 30 minutes.
2. Rooms - Small rooms which are often dusty in the corners and with stained bed sheets.
3. Do not get fooled by standard and deluxe rooms - have never been able to figure out the difference between the two (Other than the big tariff difference)

I have stayed here more than 10-15 times, only because my office is right next door and I just wanted a place to park my luggage and catch a few hrs of sleep. But not anymore.

We stayed overnight in this hotel a couple of days ago,it is total worth for money! We asked for a single room to accommodate for 4 adults and a baby which was ready when we reached. The staff,reception, house keeping, room service were great. One bed spread was dirty which was promptly replaced.TV was working when we checked in but would not turn on when we came back from lunch, which was replaced too.Complimentary breakfast was also good.The staff assisted us with the parking.We were given free drop in auto( acceptable for a budget hotel ) to OFC and US consulate. The place is total worth for money, it is close to US consulate ( 1.5 km ). As others have said, the entrance to this is hotel is quite confusing.The only reason I'm giving 4 star is the room could have been a little cleaner. The lamp, the corners of the room & bathroom had dust which was not cleaned.Bathroom could have been cleaner, but overall its a nice place.
