This hotel is comparable to few 5 star hotels. They have clean rooms.The breakfast menu was good. We were arriving late night at this hotel and had requested for dinner availability which was not there. We has to fight out the same post which we were offered few options for dinner.

We were dropped off here at the start of an Intrepid trip- to find that despite all our paperwork and vouchers listing "My Fortune' as our hotel, in fact we had no booking. Mr Ilango, the Duty Manager, was incredibly kind and went to extraordinary lengths on our behalf to sort out the problem- Intrepid 'emergency' number went unanswered and... More

This hotel may not be new but it is kept in excellent condition and has an elegant ambiance. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. Breakfast is excellent. The staff are all happy and friendly.

This is a nice property, but definitely an old one. It has visible signs of aging all around. The rooms have been re-done sometime in the recent past, but not a whole lot. Restaurant is not too great. I would not like to comment on our experience in the restaurant.

My Fortune used to be the prestigeous and upmarket Chola Sheraton. If you understand this, you can see why the hotel is the way it is...a bunch of contradictions. It has seen better days. It requires renovation badly...staff are professional and old timers...superb yet demotivated...as they feel passed over when their Management did not transfer them to the ITC Chola.... More
