“family visit”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

I stayed in this hotel because of the only advantage was that the consulate is just opposite to this hotel. Another interesting fact is that the place is close to 3 major malls,he staff is very helpful.

Very basic facilities, the only reason to stay here is to get to the US consulate easily. Has facilities to photocopy in case you missed a document, also has free WiFi. The food is not good ( no restaurant but have a kitchen that serves to the room) but there are plenty of good restaurants in the vicinity. Another intersting fact is that the place is close to 3 major malls, so once you are done with the visa process, you can pull in a bit of shopping if needed. The staff is very helpful.

Stay here only if going to the US consulate, don't expect much and you will not be dissapointed.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel if you are willing to travel to the consulate

Please stay away from this hotel. Just being very close to US consulate, this place is not at all worth of staying there. I have attached some of the pictures of there standard room. Don't go by pictures posted in there site. Reality is somewhat terrible.

I stayed in this hotel just opposite to US Consulate. The only advantage was that the consulate is just opposite this hotel. The room was not good and the corridor was scary. The photos in the website looks nice, but for the standard AC rooms you can't find this quality. Also there were 3G issue as coverage was low. There are lot of good hotels in the road on the left side of the consulate. Look for them

We stayed in Crystal Residency as it is very nearer to the US Consulate. We had booked the Deluxe room. The person at the reception reminded me that I can get a 10% Corporate discount if I showed my ID Card which is really nice. Very near to Saravana Bhavan/Swathi restaurant - can have delicious vege food or do a take away. The complimentary breakfast provided is average and they are all room serviced which is good if you are with kids. The person who takes the order usually forgets one or the other - with Tea being provided when we asked Coffee, need to remind them at-least twice to get anything. The wifi in the room is weak and doesn't work on the phone. The hotel also provides pick-up/drop service from Airport/Railway Station at a nominal cost. If you need to go to the US Consulate and looking for a budgeted hotel, this hotel is the best choice.

Room Tip: Go for the deluxe room in the new building...

I have booked this hotel looking at the closest one to US Consulate and on arrival it turned out to be a disaster. The photograph shown for a standard AC room is way different than what they offer.
Anyone who is looking for standard AC room please refrain. Its like you are staying in a bathroom.

If you are in Chennai and the purpose of your visit is to go to the US consulate, this is the best place for you! The consulate is right opposite the hotel. If you are looking for a clean room, with wi fi, TV and air conditioning, you've found the right place. If you are expecting 5 star standards you will be disappointed, but the place is worth the money. My mother and I stayed here for a couple of days and felt that the hotel is safe for women, I would recommend it to women who are travelling unaccompanied by men. The staff is courteous. The menu does not offer a wide variety of options, but the hotel is within walking distance from several eating joints.
