This hotel is bang in the middle of the city on Radhakrishnan Salai and is the most centrally located hotel on this list. Clarion Chennai has been around for a number of years now and while some of the facilities look dated, it has a charm to it. There’s even a swimming pool on top of the building! We think Clarion Chennai is great for those of you with work in the middle of the city, especially for US visa appointments (the US consulate is just a kilometer away!).
