I stayed at this recently-opened hotel in early Feb 2012. This is a very classy modern-style hotel in a good area of Chennai. The rooms are quite large compared to most other 5 star hotels in Chennai. Polished marble floors in the rooms and minimal cloth draperies help keep any mildew odor problems away. Very confortable bedding, huge shower, spacious worktable with plentiful universal electrical receptacles make living and working in the rooms easy. The rooms may feel even larger due to the unique moving walls/doors between the bath area and the room. That might make sharing the room with someone other than a spouse slightly more challenging though, but a motorized privacy screen makes this easier. on the pass-thru vanity. I liked this style of room.
Two of the restaurants are excellent: The Spice Market is the 24 hr restaurant with mostly Indian cuisine. The dinner buffet is sumptuous and the dessert selection indicate a European-trained chef. The Foccacia is an Italian cuisine restaurant with a slightly limited menu of entries, but excellent quality food. Service is very good. The Stix is a Chinese and SE Asian cuisine restaurant, but I was quite disappointed with the quality of the food, although the service was very good (do not order pork meat dishes). It has an open kitchen in the center of the restaurant that is entertaining to watch the chefs cook your food.
The pool area is very inviting and clean and comfortable. There are shade arbors for the hotter times of the day and a smaller shallow pool suitable for younger children (but will require parent supervision). There is also a really nice fitness center overlooking the pool with large glass windows and modern exercise equipment. This is so much nicer than underground fitness centers in some of the other hotels.
The overall service at this hotel is comparable to the Taj properties (very attentive) and efficient. I will definitely stay at this hotel again when I visit Chennai. Such a welcome addition to the city.
