Inauguration of new express way from New Delhi - Noida to Agra has made Hotels in Agra busy for some time ! The Express way reduces the journey time significantly by at least two hours to Agra. Its always a good idea specifically due to poor weather most of the year in Agra- to stay overnight - plan to see the Taj Mahal in either moon light or early morning. Agra Fort visit on same day - in the evening with Sound and Light Show at 1915 Hrs. I believe this is best way to spend evening Day 1 and visit Taj early morning pre-breakfast is best idea- due to heat - dust - humidity most of the year !
Stay at Gateway Agra Hotel-managed by Tata's is best and relaxing.
Room we stayed was comfortable with excellent house keeping. Specially offer of laundry at just $ 12 for any 10 clothes.You could dry clean in about 2-3 hours all your dirty clothes unlike US or Europe !
Taj Mahal is close and so is Agra Fort - Gate way has location advantage,
Food breakfast is excellent,
Have food only in Coffee shop as the Punjabi -Indian is understaffed and poor service. Best is the Bar ! Taj culture of excellent and efficient staff makes the stay pleasant.More
