In Accordance With Luxury And Comfort

Preeti Kannan checks out the Accord Metropolitan in Chennai

Chennai is fast transforming into a prominent Meetings Incentives Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) destination and a hub for business travellers and the growing number of chic business hotels in the city is a testimony to this trend. An embodiment of magnificence and elegance, the Accord Metropolitan located in the heart of the city and its commercial hub, though less than a year-old, has made its mark as a luxury business hotel.

The unique facade of the hotel sporting a kind of pergola for a roof is easily spotted from afar. The glass interiors in the lobby flood it with natural light, giving it an extremely spacious and bright look. The aesthetic marble flooring, white ceiling and rich maroon, silk drapes provide the lobby with a stylish, modern look and the intricately designed chandelier adds to the grandeur. The hotel lives up to its motto of "transcending hospitality" and it believes in exceeding the guest's expectations. The 162 lavish guest-rooms and suites are comfortable and welcoming. For the busy business traveller, the rooms are equipped with broadband and dial-up Internet access and with well-stocked mini-bars to unwind after a long day.

If you are averse to battle your way through the city's traffic and would rather conduct your business in the hotel, the property offers three meeting rooms, a fully equipped business centre with hi-tech facilities including workstations, Internet and secretarial support and spacious banquet halls.

Walk into Zodiac, the lounge bar, it leaves you starry-eyed. Tastefully done with vibrant hues of orange and red and optic fiber lights on ceilings, it imparts a vibrant feel.The wooden English furniture and the deliberately mismatched chairs add to the décor of Zodiac. The F&B choices comprise of Indiana Restaurant for authentic Indian cuisine with live music and Seasons Café offering buffets ranging from pizzas to pastas through the day.

In case you want to pamper your body and rejuvenate yourself, the hotel has everything worked out for that too. You can choose from trainer-led workouts, a strain-drain Jacuzzi, toning up massage, sauna and steam baths to relax or go for a swim and enjoy a drink at the outdoor poolside bar on the hotel's second floor. The Accord Metropolitan is a perfect blend of comfort and luxury if you are in the city either on work or leisure.
