If I compare Oceanic Pavillion in WelcomHotel Grand Bay with The Square in Novotel there are many distinct differences. And there are many commonalities. Both the places are worth experiencing for the purpose of their individuality in food and hospitality. Both in Vizag are on the beach road. If you are staying in any of these hotels, the beach is easily accessible from both. In fact, Novotel is nearer to the back by few meters. As a matter of fact, all the rooms in Novotel are sea facing. Staying in such a room itself gives a different kind of synergy. While at WelcomHotel Grand Bay all rooms are not sea facing. In fact, from my room (number 205) it was partially visible and that too a little distant. On the other hand, in Novotel, on the 5th floor, the sea was right in front of my room.
