Had two nights recently at the Oberoi in Agra. Chose this property because of its location and the fact that every room has a view of the Taj. It lived up to its reputation. We were very well cared for and it was such a treat being able to see the Taj from our bed. Found the all day dining...

A true place to relax and forget the strenuous day of going through a rough day. One feels rewarded viewing the Taj Mahal right out of your bedroom window. An unbelievable view with the luxurious pool and gardens of the hotel in the foreground. As much as it feels very secure, as a traveler alone, I would feel safer if...

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
