    This hotel was probably the best I have ever stayed in. The location was good, our room was lovely with lovely view over the swimming pool area.I can't praise the staff highly enough nothing was too much trouble and they were so friendly and courteous. The food in all the restaurants was excellent and the New Years party was fantastic. I would recommend this fantastic hotel to anyone planning a visit to Chennai.
