TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Accord Metropolitan Chennai (Madras)
Staff as before were very friendly, very helpful but our second stay was disappointing for two people who wanted to pamper ourselves. The Front desk, spa staff and Travel desk were exceptionally helpful as was our driver.
We were looking forward to our second stay at the Accord Metropolitan to end our three weeks in South India and pamper our selves. However service was quite poor. Towels were not replenished, one bathrobe for two women and when we called several time it still never came. We had one slipper then the second night the slipper was gone. We were looking forward to use the swimming pool which were told would be open again in January it was not for our December stay. The pool was closed, we said well at least the steam room is working. It was not working, the second evening both the steam room and the dry sauna were not working. The changing room is not clear so men and women had no privacy. We had an early flight but the phone kept ringing at 3 am for someone else...sigh.
We were asked if we had taken anything from the mini bar but there was no minibar it was empty...
Its too bad because the hotel was quite expensive for the both of us but we paid for the amenities of a three star hotel.

... Nice sun set though to watch over……
Arriving at the airport we are then given the visa forms, how annoying, we had whole flight we could have completed them in! After walking what felt like about a mile we finally get to customs yet despite the 15-minute walk we still have to wait for our luggage! Scanned as usual out the airport we come out to find our board, shattered!! Into the car we get cans and water with the AC put onto freezing to the point ...
... but the Indian version – with houses from various areas of India and backgrounds into different ways people live and lived. It was super cool and i had some coconut water straight from a coconut while we were there (I’d been seeing them all over India but never tried).
Naren treated us to a very western meal at a posh looking place where we dined on some tasty garlicy bruschetta, mozerrella sticks, seafood cocktail, sea bass and a chicken ...
... the CM of Tamil Nadu, booked under disproportionate assets case, due to which there was a commotion all through the state and with crowd going frenzy setting a few vehicles on fire and staging dharnas and rastha rokho.
Having booked all my accommodations and after such a long and careful planning, I didn't wish to let go and decided to take a chance. I called up the hotel to check the status around the city and if I would face ...
... FOC at the airport. There are some interesting articles. For instance, a very serious matter on page 4 of a couple of birds and a monkey being electrocuted in an apartment complex. It has been made safe for kids but not animals because there is no roof, natural selection comes to mind? The sad case of a complete village of only women, all widowed by the storms earlier this year and the protests being staged by young women rape victims is only deemed worthy of pages ...
... handing out Calypso cup drinks as we walked by :-) ahh, memories! Pondicherry had chalk designs. Mamallapurum have broken/smashed fruit scattering the streets outside gates and doorways of buildings. We learn that this only happens once a month after the first 'dark night' on the moon cycle. People take a big fruit and smash it on the street to clear their sins. The fruit looks like a melon but is red in the centre. It's a fruit is not edible. We had a walk along the beach and came ...
