hii...

My boyfriend is coming to meet me in Chennai after a loooong time. Unfortunately he is staying here only for 10 hours or so and we would like to have some private time together. Initially we thought we could go to some movie and dinner but well.. i want at least some hugs... which is completely not possible in public places in chennai and neither of us like public displays of affection as well... Is it possible for us to book in a hotel room and check out after a few hours? We dont mind spending money... any hotel that you know that allows this kind of stay without any hassles?

Any 5/4 star hotel would do, as long as you can afford to pay.

Lady, arranging a place is the guy's job. At least that's what I used to believe up till now.

Anyways with regards to your question,it is certainly possible. My advice do not chuck the room after a couple of hours stay a night, one of you should stay a night. You book a room for a couple of hours and things get fishy in the insular minds here. Either of you should carry a little bit of luggage. Just take a bag full of bricks (Just to say Doesn't matter what's in it).

Most important: Both of you gotta be cool. I hope you know one of you will have to furnish some form of id for hotel stay in these times of terrorism. However, if some dim wit tries to act smart asks for identification you are married or something be ready to give it back to them.

And go to some place pricey. They are more concerned about business rather than other crap. A hotel near a business district will not raise eyebrows like a hotel in some residential area.

Take it just as an example! Now-a-days, bags are scanned in pricey hotels!!

But, local one would not work here! You may ask the guy to furnish his identity on demand!

HI,
Surely you don't have to tell them you are not going to stay the night?

Can you not choose a low budget hotel,pay upfront for a night and just leave when you want.
You could always complain/say that the room is not satisfactory after the time you spend and ask for a refund.

my advice would be to book in advance rather than just show up.

if time permits- why I believe is a limitation), why not just go to Mahabalipuram, and spend some time at a hotel there. It would have better memories for you, I guess. Just a suggestion, more applicable if your place in chennai is near the East coast road.

That's asking for trouble, not to mention all the unnecessary interrogation you have to go through.

The OP has only ten hours in her hand! Mahabalipuram would be killing half of precious time!!

Also OP did not mention those 10 hours are daytime or night time

checking in with luggage during evening and staying whole night not an issue.

Checking in with luggage in morning and checking out during evening a problem, as very few people might stay in hotel all day or you need to check in go out for 1-2 hours then come back stay for 3-4 hours then again go out and come back, this procedure will help the hotel authorities to understand that you have some job to do in city.

OR another thing you can do is check out some service apartments.

They are less bossy nosey than hotels and more homely.

http://www.nplsnest.com/

http://www.lakshminest.com/

out of the three we booked laurels for one official guest, and it is like 5 star hotel and costs some 2700 per day. So just checkin to some service apartments, telling you have some interview or some business deal or etc etc. And while booking you have to do lot of acting drama: For eg while checking in just try to call a phone and talk or if your Service apartment is in adyar ask the reception how to go to thiruvanmiyur or tidel park and note instructions on piece of paper. Asking questions about location will help.

Or

best advice see if a friends flat is available or not, most safe and trusted.

Now-a-days, several hotels offer Day Use services and it can be used in such circumstances.

The OP should try googling "day use hotels in chennai" to find several options.

As the purpose of such stay is to relax after a night long journey, they might not be questioning too much as the purpose is obvious!

But, the OP has not visited since her first post! Not sure whether she is following us or not!

Could it be waste of our time!? Dunno, Really!!!

So two consenting adults of legal age cannot get a hotel room in India for having sex? Or whatever other things two consenting adults wish to engage in?

Who rules India? The Grand Ayatollah of New Delhi?

This won't be a problem in most places in India. This is a problem with this particular state only if I daresay. Even state would be an over stating it. A section of the people actually.

You see some people here are so insular that a glint of something that is not part of their culture is frowned, opposed and fought against, violently I might add.

Oh and nobody rules India we are a democracy.

I thought so too. Until I saw so many people asking about how unmarried couples can stay in a hotel room together. (This one is not an isolated case..or so it seems)

About the people not liking it or the state not liking it or the god squad not liking it etc..... What about individual civil liberties and right to privacy trumping them all? Democracy?
