my girlfriend and i are going to india in april and are flying into chennai.

i want to book up a really romantic hotel as a surprise before we go.

im thinking colonial style building, big rooms, high ceilings, chandeleiers... verandahs, nice garden etc.

moneywise... i guess anything up to about US$50 for a double room for a night

does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi Joey,

hmhmhmmmmmm...colonial style Hotel???

I think only one hotel in Chennai --""The Connemera Hotel"" 5star hotel. Now called as ""Taj Connemera"..on the Binny road ...a great location right in the city centre..Phone No:+91 44 55000000.
Not sure of the present room tariff.
They have both old wing and the new ask for the old wing..(may be you can have a look before you check-in).

If you don't insist colonial style, then suggest you to stay at "Temple Bay" ( phone:27443636)or "Fisherman's Cove"(phone:67413333) near Mamallapuram about 55kms from Chennai .These two hotels are located just beside the sea!!

All the taxi drivers know these hotels as they are upper end hotels.

have an enjoyable stay in Chennai.
