As soon as I walked into the hotel I was impressed. I was greeted by friendly staff and the hotel was immaculate. I was taking up to my room and given a tour by Rahul. He was amazing! He helped with all my queries and took time out of his busy schedule to look after me all week. The terrace... More

This is great hotel and most likely the best hotel during my stay in India. It doesn't look like much when you arrive but once you come through the door, the service is excellent. Food is great. Well priced too. I didn't get a chance to view the pool. The hotel is rather dated but the it will not make... More

It's an excellent hotel to stay with a wow feeling and lovely location. Courteous and well trained staff always on their toes. Room amenities are good and value for money. Good spacious and sunny rooms which I believe is the best part. Few improvements: Although the look and feel of the Bathroom was good, maintenance was poor. Food wasn't very... More

It was a nice experience. I went there with my wife and 18months old son. Ample car parking space. Very big room and well furnished. Bathroom comparatively is small. Food is good and breakfast buffet spread was quite appreciating. The buffet dinner is nice but they should have increased Non veg spread a little more. Staffs are friendly. Room service... More

Stayed at Room No. 315. WELCOME IN THE ROOM. No Dental kit, no slippers, safe was locked, room refrigerator was empty. After 2-3 phone calls, they somehow managed it. After taking bath in the morning water logged in the room because their drain was chocked. Though they came and instead of admitting the mistake, told us that "may be your... More

For the city that houses the Taj, Agra seems to lack a great deal more in terms of attractions and accommodation which makes it unwise to stay much more than a night. However Howard plaza is as good a place as you'll find to do so. Especially at a reasonable price. The rooms were clean and spacious. The Internet was... More

The housekeeping staff were great and pleasant to deal with, but that's about the only good thing I can say about this hotel. The upholstery is grubby, some of the restaurant staff are surly or hard to track down. Worst of all my 10 yr old got a sickness bug from the breakfast which made the drive to Jaipur difficult...

Arrived at the hotel on 31st December & found the staff very busy preparing for NYE Celebrations. The room was clean and a good size. After an afternoon visit to The Taj Mahal and Agra Fort we had a quick walk around the neighbourhood and returned to the hotel about 5pm. It was compulsory to book the NYE Ball in... More

Proper Service! The Howard Plaza is THE place where you can rest in a comfortable room, with every commodity needed. We were surprise to see the rooftop serving a great dinner and pretty elaborated cocktail. The Breakfast buffet was complete between indian and european style dishes. Highly recommend it !
