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.

... br> There were not many items that were available for breakfast. At this hour, they had Tosai, Vadai, Idli, Puri and Ponggal. We ordered two sets of Vadai's and two sets of Idli's along with four coffee's.
As recommended, their Vadai's were superb. In fact, they were much better than the Vadai that we had at Adyar Ananda Bhavan last night. Both my dad and I had another two ...
... this a mirage? no it wasn't, it was the real deal. We went in and enjoyed the facilities of this coffee chain, including an iced coffee each and a read of the paper. It was nice to get out of the intense humidity. After about an hour, it was time to head back into town. We walked for about ten minutes before it began to pour down with rain. We immediately got drenched. It was quite heavy. Kaete was a bit worried about her electronics in her backpack. I ...
We've had impromptu upgrades ... thanks Chris for putting a good word in for the rest of us NOT ... wailing children and an adventure to meet the captain and his co-pilots but we're finally here and it's officially day one in Chennai. Last night was probably the best journey we'll see on Chennai's roads - just a smattering of stray dogs and a herd of cows. Communication is going well so far. Amanda managed some great animal related small ...
... damn hot so a couple of us went to get a drink and cool down for a bit. Had a quick power nap after that (has to be done!) then met with the rest of the group to go for lunch at a rooftop restaurant by the beach, nice! The snow back at home seems like a distant memory now! The best bit of today was hiring some bikes and riding around the town visiting temples and various other sites. Cycling here is an experience! Almost got hit by a tuc tuc but managed to dodge it in ...
... bags so we’d be ready to go as
soon as the call came in. At lunch time on Day 4 we left. We respected the
wishes of Mohandas and Madhurima and told the mother of the home that we were
leaving simply to see more of Pondicherry. (We were also promised that there
would be a truthful feedback session of our time there with the Mother and
Mohandas at a later date.) Bizarrely the Mother of Jwala put on a very strange
show of affection for me as I explained to ...
