    I would like some help in finding some 4-star hotels in Chennai. I don't know about the city and don't have a clue where I would even start looking for a hotel. Hence I have joined the forum to get help from those who know about the area.

    My maximum budget is Rs3400, and I hope that breakfast is included in this cost. Other plus points for the hotel would be a swimming pool and gym.
