After a long break we went out as a family and stayed at this property - Mercure Chennai Sriperumbudur. We were bowled over by the flower art work on the bed when we entered the rooms. We had two rooms. The art was so beautiful and we didn't have the heart to disturb that. The two guys had spent several hours for that.
On learning about my wife's birthday, the two guys again showed their art work. And when my wife who had gone out returned to the room was pleasantly surprised.
The 'Mercure Thanda', a cooler made with milk, nuts and other ingredients inspired by the drink Jigirthanda for which Madurai is famous for was great.
The food and service at the restaurant were great. Officials said work is on to offer guests food and drinks inspired by the local/regional favourites.
Since its start, Mercure Chennai Sriperumbudur has been offering the unique idli variety-the Kancheepuram Idli.
Among the several types of idlis -- a healthy South Indian dish -- the Kancheepuram idli has a special, even divine, status. It is offered to the Lord Varadharaja Perumal in Kancheepuram.
In no other temple Kancheepuram Idli is offered to the Lord as the main offering.More
