    The right choice for the area

    Very smart and clean hotel. Room was large and kept immaculate. Pleanty if bottled water supplied to the room, with additional drinks in the mini bar. Nice and welcome pool area in the heat if Chennai. Main restaurant had a great choice of Indian and international food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I stuck to Indian and it was all very good. The Chinese restaurant did a great set menu with generous portions, but a good selection a'la carte if you don't need the full banquet. Service can be a little slow in both at any meal, but we did usually have a group of 6-8 people. Friendly bar staff with more food choices in the bar. It's on a busy road so traffic can be heard from the room sometimes but it's not intrusive. Was there for 10 nights and enjoyed the whole stay. Will be back if working in the vicinity again.
