Hotels offering excellent services in Chennai

Chennai is South India’s prominent metro. Chennai central alone gets over three and a half lakh visitors per day, while CMBT and Chennai airport also sees similar passenger count. A good number of these visitors will be looking for good hotels in Chennai, particularly hotels near Chennai Central railway station.

Chennai is the only southern city to have US Consulate, so all visa aspirants visit Chennai and since US Visa now a two day process, most of them will need to stay overnight.  Chennai has wide range of hotels suiting every budget needs. There’re dormitory type rooms for few hundred rupees within CMBT premises, while on the other side, we have luxury hotels like ITC Park Sheraton, Grand Chola, Leela, Hyatt, Westin and Marriott.

In this post, I am listing a few good hotels in Chennai, covering different localities and budget types.

Located on East Coast Road, Blue Lagoon is a spacious and affordable resort by the sea. It has big playground that can be used to play cricket or football and spacious cottages and rooms for a comfortable stay.  Nice coconut trees, play area and friendly staff make your stay a very comfortable one. Enjoy cool breeze while sipping your favourite drink. It is preferred destination for many corporate houses. Do select this if you want a comfortable sea side accommodation away from mad crowd of the city.

iWay Residency, OMR
Located on Chennai’s IT highway, the Rajiv Gandhi Salai, formerly known as OMR, iWay Residency is a budget hotel closer to most of the IT companies in the area. This hotel can be your ideal choice if you’re coming to OMR area for business or interviews. Right on the main road, easy public transportation is available to this hotel from all part of the city, so you won’t have to spend a lot on taxis.

Sapthagiri Hotel, Park Town
This hotel is very near to Chennai central railway station and even closer to park town MMTS (Local trains in Chennai).  Staying here will keep you close to Chennai central while offering easy connectivity to other parts of town, via buses and local trains. Chennai beach, Anna Salai etc are closer to this hotel, located at the heart of Chennai city.
