It feels very special and satisfying” said Gupta, Chairman, Gupta Group of Companies.
“Our work in the European fashion industry exposed us to several boutique and unique hotels all over continental Europe. We felt that Chennai deserved a hotel inspired by cutting-edge international design combined with nouveau F&B concepts catering to the discerning, widely travelled guest.
AccorHotels is a wonderful partner with their owner friendly and customer first ethos. We are extremely happy with the outcome and hope to give our guests an incredible experience” said, Ashish Gupta, MD, AG hospitalities.

We look forward to making all our guests ‘Feel Welcome’,” said Jean-Michel Cassé, COO, India and South Asia, AccorHotels.
