This is my first visit to Chennai/India. We went there for our friend's wedding. I was pleasantly surprise by the hotel especially when the surrounding area was filled with old buildings and road works. The reception area is very grand. The check-in was prompt and we decided to upgrade to a club room for an extra 300 euro. This include free Wi-fi (only one electronic device at one time) in your room, breakfast at the club room or the restaurant and happy hour from 5-8pm in the cub room which includes some hot food, snacks and alcohol. Our room is spacious and beautiful. Separate shower and bath and toilet which is nice.
We ate at the Indian restaurant on the first night. The food was nice but very pricey. We had three courses each with no alcohol and it costed 80 euro. The next day, we went for breakfast at the restaurant. There were a lot of selection available. Indian, some Chinese, continental and etc. They are only OK. The Chinese section is very poor. Happy hour at the club room was good. There were very friendly and attentive staff there to serve you. The hot food selection was not great though. The roof top Q-bar is very nice. I enjoyed having a drink overlooking the view of the city. But please put some mosquito repellent or else you will get a lot of bites!
The only complain I had was that, I enquired with the reception regarding the beauty salon at the hotel. It was listed in the hotel service folder that it is available on the 10th floor. I would like to have my hair done for the wedding which was at 10am. However, the receptionist told me repeatedly that the hotel did not have a beauty salon and when I asked them that it was listed in the service folder, they did not have an answer to that. If the management is reading this post, I will appreciate an explanation to that because it is misleading.
Overall, my experience with the hotel is very positive. If there is a remote chance of us going back to Chennai, I will definitely stay in this hotel again!
