The Trident Hotel, Agra, offers a serene respite from the bustle of the city, yet is just minutes from the Taj Majal, Agra’s most famous landmark. The hotel’s 135 rooms and 2 suites are set among Mughal-style gardens, courtyards, fountains and architecture that evoke the historic character of that storied age. Yet its interior and guestrooms are sleek and contemporary, recently refurbished to offer every state-of-the-art amenity. Standard features for all rooms include central air conditioning, both wired and wireless Internet access, direct-dial telephones, mini bar, tea and coffee maker, 24-hour room service, satellite TV, electronic safe, hair dryer and convertible voltage (110-220). The hotel’s large swimming pool invites a cooling dip on a hot day, and other recreation options include a fitness center with full range of equipment, table tennis, and a track for jogging and walking. The lobby bar invites relaxing over a drink, while dining at the Trident Agra garners much acclaim. The poolside restaurant features continental, Southeast Asian and outstanding Indian dishes, as well as authentic pizzas from the wood-fired oven. At every turn are the hotel's gracious staff, whose hospitality matches the first-class quality of the overall guest experience.
