Ambassador Pallava, Chennai
Good hospitality in a rather old looking property
The hospitality from a people point of view is good. However, it is an old property and that is evident in the rooms and the facilities there in. The smell in the rooms, though not bad, gives away the age of the building. Given that there are other options in the vicinity, the hotel needs to review their value for money model. It could potentially be a 3-star option in my opinion.

There was a smell problem
I chose this hotel because it was the closest I could get to a morning appointment. After entering the lobby, we could smell humidity. Temperature was OK, but obviously the AC had not been upgraded for a while, which explained the smell. Checking in was a bit more hassle than usual (I don't think they see too much non-Indian business, so they wanted to make SURE my passport and visa were OK), which did not exactly made for a stellar welcome (albeit otherwise they were polite). Apparently, no non-smoking rooms for our type of room (I got upgraded to an immense but empty room with a small window, but my travelling companion not, and his room was smelly). Got down to the bar for a few drinks and snacks, which was OK, but like the rest of the hotel it struck us as very old-style, and not in a good way. Service was distinctly non hurried, which was fine for one night but makes this hotel not an option for our future needs.

Convenient hotel with excellent food
The Ambassador Pallava was close to where I had meetings and unexpectedly close to attractions like the national art museum. The property is beginning to show its age, but the food and service were excellent.

Good Option in Egmore area
This was my third stay at the hotel. This time I was "upgraded" to the Heritage wing. I somehow found the Executive wing better. The heritage wing has furniture which looks like from the 60's and the carpets are terribly dirty ! Yes, the rooms are massive, but for a single traveler, one does not need such massive space.Their breakfast spread is wonderful and I used the pool this time. Old world pool with shallow and deep sections, unlike most new pools which have a 4/5 ft. uniform depth.
