We had shortlisted the Howard Plaza among other hotels, but decided to drive to Agra and then book...which turned out to be a great decision! Most hotels in this range are shoddy fly-by-night style operations and in a lot of cases were just haphazardly erected blocks..with no parking available!?
The front desk was really well managed and we were given our rooms with no real fuss or drama. The rooms were excellent and ours turned out to be one of the pool facing rooms which was a bonus!
Wouldn't recommend eating at the hotel though..while the food itself was excellent, the staff just weren't up to standard and that included the restaurant manager. By any chance if you happen to be in the restaurant at the time of a group booking then you are left to your own devices! ...and no amount of complaining helped!
Would recommend that you stay here for sure but eat elsewhere unless the restaurant is not booked by a group!
Have fun :)
