Good business hotel in prime location in Chennai. Rooms were clean, room size was average, bathroom was small, buffet breakfast and dinner were good. The service was also good. Overall a good business hotel but slightly expensive for the value it offers.

The hotel is centrally located and ideal for business meets. Rooms well made and has convenience. Restaurant- the Main Street- has lots of covers and good spread of cuisine. The lobby ambience is busy but professional. Shopping around is also attracts and make us spend evenings roaming.
