A long weekend at the Taj Hotel and Convention Centre, Agra

Agra has been long on my list of places to go. So I decided to drive to Agra through Yamuna Express way . I chose to stay at the Taj Hotel and convention Centre Agra , one of the newest hotels to open up in Agra. The hotel was the earlier Radisson and was reflagged as a Taj property in 2019. It is also very close to the highway as you enter the city and close to the Taj Mahal.

As I entered the hotel, I was accorded a traditional welcome with an Aarti, and the team were ready to check us in. The hotel is over 300 rooms, and it was prime check-out time given the large number of weddings they were hosting at the hotel on the days we were there. So, the front desk crew had our key cards prepared, and they brought us straight to our room .

The Taj Hotel, Agra Deluxe Suite

The Deluxe Suite had a living area, a bedroom, and an enclosed bath. The living room had a work desk, a couch and a dining table. The dining area had some very comfortable chairs, and in fact, a couple of the calls that bothered me over this long weekend were done from here, rather than the work desk at the other end of the room

Taj View Rooms

The hotel has a whole assortment of rooms, and if you’d like a definite view of the Taj Mahal from your room, you should book one which guarantees you the view. These rooms are marked specifically, and even the door states that there is a view. We asked to have a look at one such room.

Other hotel facilities and amenities

The hotel has two pools, one on an intermittent level of the hotel, alongside the gym and the spa and the other on the rooftop. The rooftop one had all the traffic, perhaps because of the views, but I’d prefer the other pool for a quick dip.
