We stayed at the Radisson Blu in Agra on New Years Eve 2012/13 and had a fantastic stay.

The service, rooms, and restaurant were all excellent. The Gala Dinner on New Years Eve was a great event - with some of the best food we have had in India in the last 2 years, great drinks and organisation by the hotel.

The hotel is located a very short car ride (you could probably walk to the ticket booth) from the east entrance to the Taj Mahal. What more could you ask for.

Spent 3 nights in SAS Radisson in Agra December 2012. Very good hotel, and fantastic located towards seeing Taj Mahal.
Ticket booth of Taj Mahal are only 400 meter from hotel, but they still offer shuttle to Taj Mahal. Be aware if you use the shuttle, that there might be a tourguide jumping onborad and acting as this is included - it is NOT. Ask before using the services, and get a price if you like to use the guide.
Hotel is nice and clean, with fantastic food. Spa are good, but in December it is cold, so check spa room before booking treatment. Not nice having massage and be cold .....Common areas in the hotel might be cold during winter, but rooms are comfortable and warm.
Absolutely a hotel to recommend

Clean hotel, twin bed room was spacious.

The Xmas & New Year gala dinner was unfortunately compulsory- 2500rupees for children 3-10yo was a bit pricey. Music was loud and blaring till well past midnight. The hotel was really pushing for us to pay for this even though I would rather just have dinner in a quiter venue. Furthermore with the recent death of the Delhi girl that was raped, I would think moderation in celebration would have been respectful rather than Jai-hooing away in wanton abandon. Also , the limitless alcohol in the price certainly does not encourage safe drinking! We left early, but could hear drunk hotel guests walking to their room later on.
The food at the Bollywood night was great to sample but not so good for the stomach
to handle! I suspect it was the squid or chicken( I was careful to avoid the cold salads)

Free wifi is a plus but then you have to pay for the dinner 5000 rupees per head

We stayed at this hotel in December and wished we could have stayed longer. We went there to see the Taj Mahal. The staff were very friendly and upgraded us on arrival. The room was spotless and the hotel had a lovely pool, and great gym. It is central and everyone is helpful. I would highly recommend opting for this hotel!

Radisson was a last-minute buy as every other hotel in the Taj town was sold out thanks to the Christmas-New Year festive season & consequent holidays. We wanted to stay at a good ritzy place, with modern comforts since the city has not much to offer apart from archaeological treasures. Since the Radisson property was new, we guessed that the infrastructure would be new & amenities would be modern...well, we were right. The hotel doesn't have much of a campus, when compared to Mughal Sheraton or Jaypee Palace which are the old stalwarts, but it makes up with wonderfully modern comfortable rooms which are done up aesthetically, fantastic friendly service & a good buffet breakfast!!! The Gym was well-equipped with a friendly instructor, Arun, and the steam & sauna were complimentary with the room...I'd say good 5 star hotel with good value-for-money. Recommended.

Room Tip: You'll have to look out of the room!!! There are the ones with a pretty view & then some not...

I chose this hotel because of all the great reviews I have read about it but was very disappointed.
the first thing was their simple refusal of picking me up at the Agra Fort train station! I called the hotel, they gave me the number of a driver who told me he would never come to pick me up at the Fort, I called again the hotel and they said no, they don't have the licence to take me from there, which was ridiculous.
Secondly, the staff was very antipathic, almost rude, I got sent in my room with no hello or thank you, the hotel was empty and the restaurant filled with random people from the staff. besides, there was dissappointing Wifi signals !
i did'nt thought of this kind of service from Radisson
