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.
