If you are planning your weekend break to Agra, you may look at Wyndham, the property is spread out, & has comfortable rooms, however that's IT. Had booked for a Corporate Travel over 10th & 11th May, for our office (have stayed earlier as well).
The Front Desk team lacks basic politness, it seems they dont want you there, our luggage was kept in the sun for 5 hours as rooms were not ready when we reahed & had to start the conference, the rooming list was messed up, rooms AC's stopped working in the middle of the night & people were only given another room after much arguement.
You cannot have the Buffet B/F in your room ( some 5*+ hotels allow it), they serve the food in Zaika, which will get crowded over the weekends.
Now the good part why the property has earned 3 * from me, the swimming pool area is good, & with family can be a good recreational spot, there is a lot of greenery inside the property & gardens post 9 pm, are a delight to sit in & roam with family /spouse.
You can relax as the property is spread out so you are not disturbed, the room service is pretty okay. The rooms (if your AC works) are comfortable, the sleep quality is good.
The EAM Vivek , is a professional & wants to build this property, there are some people in the Restaurant . Simran, Abhinav who are polite & professional.
Final - If you are not a sucker for 5* service, but want to enjoy no frills weekend, then go here atleast once to experience the property.
Suggestion to the Hotel : Have some more activities to engage kids.
