So glad we stayed...from CANINLON
A nice oasisfrom esheng
Pleasure palacefrom Tenormary
However, the room we did get was very nice with a spacious bathroom and a tray of sweets. We don't know if we got those as compensation for our long wait, but we didn't argue about having.
There is a wonderful "lookout" on top of this complex that faces the Taj Mahal. A wonderful place to watch the sun set or rise. They also have a maze and a wonderful swimming pool area.
Don't let a small problem of a maladjusted room key stop you from staying here.
Not quite what I expected...from Emmam71
Better value than the Amarvilas, better food toofrom dokanman
The room at the Sheraton is cornflake packet 80s style, but at least you won't get lost looking for the bathroom. We had some views of the Taj, and a loungey sort of area by the window which works well.
Reception, check in etc was as good as anywhere. We ate in the hotel - superb Indian food. The waiters were helpful and profesional without all the fawning we got at the Amarvilas. Food was miles better. Similar to the Sheraton in Delhi, which I use for the gym and pool when in Delhi, staying in a private house rather than a hotel.
There isn't a spa as such. If you want a waif of a girl rubbing perfumed oil into your back at $70 / hour you're better off in Thailand, or you can get a version at the Amarvilas.
The pool is not very special. Here the Amarvilas scores much better.
Overall, if you want to see the Taj Mahal, have dinner and move in after a couple of days then I'd recommend the Sheraton. The 300 us / night saving goes along way elsewhere.

Good Hotel- Not good value for moneyfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Reasonable hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Room: We found it annoying that they tried to palm us off with a twin bed room when we had booked a double bed room - which is what it said on the voucher. When we asked for what we had booked, we were then shown a smoking room - again not what we had booked. Finally, on the third attempt, we were given a double room, non-smoking! It was comfortable but nothing special.
Room service: very impressive. Food arrived within the time estimate. When they didn't have the desert i ordered they put in a substitute and called to check it was okay - even bringing me a scoop of ice-cream!
Buffet breakfast: Really wasn't very nice. Not much choice of fruit and the tea they served was so awful, you wouldn't think that this was in the country of tea!
Health centre: Very small but with really good machines and the attendant was a lovely man. The changing facilities were inadequate though, so be warned!
Checkout: Was very slow even though we were the only ones checking out at the time! Make plenty of time for this!
Excellent Hotel, Unique and Comfortablefrom Migizi
ROOMS: I loved the room. One of the few hotel rooms I have stayed in in recent years that I can say was truly unique. There is a sofa/bed type thing in one corner by the window, low to the ground, covered in a dozen pillows. The bed is usual Sheraton - comfy. Decor is nice, and decorations are local in theme. Bathroom small but very nicely appointed.
FOOD: Buffet restaurant OK, same with Chinese restaurant. Nothing special here, but decent.
OTHER: Service was good, people were helpful and friendly. I got a pre-paid room rate that was VERY cheap on the Sheraton website. That is the way to go. View of Taj from roof, from a distance.
LOCATION: Agra has the Taj Mahal, the Red Fort, and virtually nothing else worth seeing. The rest of the town is a waste of time. That said, this hotel is in decent proximity to both.

Top Local Tips for Agra
Taj Mahal Make sure you plan enough time to visit the Taj Mahal during the day and pay extra for a guide when you reach the Taj. I also saw the Taj Mahal on a full moon night and the "dew factor" and pollution made it difficult to see. The evening viewing was a unique experience since it was so quiet, but I'm not sure if I can recommend paying extra too see it in the evening since it was difficult to see. Also, you are not allowed to go further than the first entrance platform at night (for security reasons)...
Avoid May-September I was in India during May and June on a business trip. I would never choose to go to any part of India during May-September due to the extreme heat, but Agra and Delhi are especially hot. We visited the Taj the first weekend in June, and had high temperatures of >45 degress C (up to 115 deg. F). Not only is it hot outside (even at 6:00am), but the vehicle airconditioners can barely maintain a reasonable tempurature during the 4 hour drive from Delhi.
Get a driver and get a life Don't even think of going round Agra without a driver.
