    I need to be in T Nagar for some work and would be required to stay there for a couple of days. My accommodation would be in a hotel, and I would like to know about some of the good hotels in T Nagar Chennai where I can stay.

    I would like to the hotel to be in a busy area as I would be staying on my own and I would feel safe being in a crowded place.
