    I have to go to the US consulate in Chennai and as it is quite a distance from where I live I would prefer staying near the US consulate so that I can reach on time and be refreshed before having to be there for most of the day.

    I would like members to give some suggestions to a hotel near US consulate in Chennai.
    The ideal hotel should be mid range with a budget of Rs1500 - Rs2000.

It is located Gopalapuram, near the Gemini Circle, on the junction of the Service Road and Cathedral Road. The nearest landmark is the St. George's Cathedral, which is just four minutes of walking away from the US Consulate. The picturesque Semmozhi Poonga, a garden, is just four minutes to the west of the US Consulate.
