Our friends with 3 children recommended this hotel and it has far exceeded our expectations.
The rooms are so tastefully and beautifully decorated, modern, yet keeping within the style and tradition of the building. (It has only been opened since the beginning of the year so is quite new)
It is one of the few hotels that also has a pool, which is mostly in shade which is great for our kids who are aged 2 & 6
It is centrally located in the French Quarter so is an easy walk to most things like the beach, upmarket shops and restaurants and if you need to go further like the markets an auto rickshaw is always available which the hotel can organise.
It has a spa centre which we didnt get to try but if it is anything like the rest of the hotel would be great
The staff all have warm smiles and are genuinely pleased and happy to help. Fantastic with our children
The food was delicious and very accomodating to the children's tastes. Resturarant is on the second floor and gets cool breezes.
This will be our weekend escape from Chennai over the next 3 years.
