Oberoi quality all over - service, hospitality, facilities, cleanliness, food, etc were all top. It is ideally located for Taj Mahal and Agra city visits. Has less of the coziness of other Oberoi properties.

We've traveled quiet a bit and can't say that we've been to a better hotel anywhere. Service, accommodations, food, cleanliness, views... two thumbs up (if I had more thumbs, those would be raised to!). Our kids, 9 and 4 and parents loved it too. It's a very quiet serene location. Once you step out, it complete chaos. The Taj is...

While this is the most expensive hotel I have ever stayed at it was worth it to see the Taj from every window - even the bathroom! The staff went out of their way to make it the most special for us. And this trip was ever so special as the Taj was our 7th New Wonder of the World...

Love love love the interior design with sprawling fountains and pools everywhere. The elephant statues when you walk in are stunning along with the gold leaf floral artwork painted on the walls.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Taj Mahal is extraordinary as much for what it is as how it has escaped the banality of cliché. For 350 years, this monument evokes a sense of wonder. Only by being there can you witness its true majesty, its symmetry, its setting and the delicacy of its carved marble inlaid with precious stones. Now just suppose you were to overlook it from your hotel room? The Oberoi Amarvilas is 600 metres from this tribute to love. The lavish interiors and elaborate gardens add to the serenity of the scene. The guestrooms are palatial: all have magical views and are luxuriously furnished with traditional fabrics, white marble, hand-crafted ornaments and every modern amenity. There is a luxury spa offering a range of therapies, a swimming pool where snacks and drinks are served; an ornamented ballroom and fine restaurants to suit the international palate. But the lobby lounge is a feast for the eye designed, as it was, around that glorious view of the Taj Mahal. ... more   less
