“I am blogging about my luxury stay experience for an activity at BlogAdda in association with MakeMyTrip“
TheThe Taj Gateway Hotel Fatehabad Road in Agra is probably the
most luxurious hotel we have ever stayed at. Everything about this hotel was
top notch and we were impressed with just about everything the hotel had to
offer. Right from the start, when we arrived, they made us feel like we were
very important guests of theirs.

Its only 2.8KMs away from Agra fort and is one of the popular hotel in Agra.
Navigation or Google Maps will be helpful in reaching there.
As soon as we started walking up to the doors with our
luggage, one of the staff members came running out and grabbed our suitcases
for us. He escorted us to the front desk and we checked in our luggage on the
first floor. Then, another woman escorted us to the main lobby area to get us
checked in. We arrived pretty early and they were able to check us in at 10 AM,
which I was not expecting at all. They were very accommodating with our needs
and made sure we had everything we needed. After we got our room keys, once
again, we were escorted to our room and the woman showed us how some things
operated in the room.
The lobby area
The room was stunningly spacious with a big bed and large
windows overlooking the city nad the magnificent view of the iconic monument.
Spacious rooms with huge bed and magnificent view
The bathroom was the most gorgeous hotel bathroom I have ever seen with a large, mirror and a bathtub. The amenities were awesome as well. They provided the usual toiletries along with a milk. sugar, green tea, bottles of water and more.

As we were getting situated in the room, we heard the
doorbell ring (yup, there’s a doorbell) and the staff gifted us with a little
box of chocolates and peanuts welcoming our stay. They just kept on surprising
us with one outstanding thing after another.
dinner, we went toSky-Deck, It
is located at the top of the hotel. It is a stylish new age restaurant which
also serves as a window to the ancient Mughal era. It offers a rare opportunity
to witness the changing colors of the majestic Taj Mahal with every passing
hour. We marvel at the breathtaking view with a sumptuous dinner and enjoy it
to the fullest.

when we got back, our room was made up again, the lights were dimmed and we
were ready to have a tight sleep after a tiring day.
The next morning, we had breakfast at the hotel restaurant,Jhankar, and
had their delicious buffet. We enjoyed the delicious flavors of Indian cuisine
with live dance and music performance. It is one of the Agra’s favorite
restaurants known for serving traditional North Indian Food. We love the
experience of fresh flavors, authentic taste and enticing presentation. Usually,
when hotels compliment breakfast, it's the usual pastries, fruits, cereals and
drinks, but this breakfast buffet was top notch.

Service was also top notch with the waiters and floor
managers communicating with customers and making sure all their customers were
well taken care of. There was this one time I asked for a refill on my coffee
and the waiter was very disappointed that he didn’t notice this himself and
apologized for not getting me coffee sooner. I was blown away by their
attention to detail.
The next day, we were out for most of the day at Taj Mahal,
so when we returned, we were so happy to come back to our welcoming room with smiling
staff and housekeeping. We took a nice bath with the rubber ducky and relaxed
in our comfy beds.
On our final morning at the hotel, we enjoyed breakfast one
last time and checked out of our room, but since we had another full day
planned, we just left our luggage with the hotel. They informed us that if we
needed, we could use their fitness and spa facility to take a shower before
leaving, which was super nice of them to offer. Seriously, the best hotel ever!
I wish we could have enjoyed this hotel more, but we were
limited on our time in Agra. Although, we did cross off a couple things from our
list so that we could enjoy the hotel a bit more than originally planned. We
were sad to leave The Taj Gateway Hotel Fatehabad Road because we loved it so
much and were treated like royalty. We will definitely be staying here again
when we're back in Agra.
Thank you The Taj Gateway Hotel for such a memorable stay and for being so
accommodating with all of our needs. You are truly amazing!
