Nice hotel with rude staffs
on Apr 22, 2016
This hotel is very nice If you are staying on ECR (Kottivakkam), Ambience locality everything is good. Its restaurant is very good service menu taste everything is fine. While staying in hotel rooms are also cozy and clean but staffs are very arrogant. Room service is poor.

We had a family function in October and had a room booking at this hotel.
1. The pricing is about average that you get in this locality. About Rs.2500 per night which is pretty decent.
2. The location is a major advantage since the hotel is located right on ECR. Banks, ATMs, shops are all accessible at walking distance.
3. The rooms are clean, but have mosquitoes and insects. Room service is good and timely.
4. Food is pretty OK. There are better restaurants nearby. If you can walk, there are quite a few options where you get better food at reasonable prices.
Overall Verdict: Decent hotel for a decent budget.
Be wary of thirdparty bookings

I clicked on the booking link from Tripadvisor which took me to Cleatrip and prompty did the booking. But when I reached the hotel, they said they do not accept bookings from Cleartrip! Called Cleartrip, and after 15 minutes on phone, they refunded the amount. Ultimately stayed in the same place as they had rooms available. One weird thing is that they asked me if me and my wife are really married to each other, and asked for identity cards of both.
The stay itself was pleasant and comfortable. The room was clean. There is beach within 1.4 kms too.
Excellent choice for business & personal.

Stayed with my wife for 3days here. Very peaceful stay, customer friendly staff and good food. Comfortably situated in the right place to either get into city or sneak around ECR.
I definitely recommend this place.
Closed Minded Hotel Management in "Cosmopolitan City"
on Jul 1, 2012
I stayed at this hotel during the summer of 2012. I came to Chennai with my Tamilian boyfriend (I am a white American girl), excited to see the capital of his home state. Unfortunately, I had to stay ALONE in this hotel, as the management told us that men and women could not stay together overnight unless they were married. My boyfriend even came up to my room to help me with my bags and the hotel desk rang my room to tell me that he had to leave since we are not married. I cannot believe that a huge, cosmopolitan city like Chennai would impose such an arcane and exclusive rule. I also think that they might not have imposed such a rule on two white tourists but because I am white and my boyfriend is brown, they did.
In addition, the WiFi was terrible and when I went to pay they added an additional service charge (on top of the VAT) which was not advertised in the brochure they showed me when I decided to stay there. Thumbs down.
