The Wyndham Grand is a well laid out and grand property in the Fatehbad area of Agra. The hotel is well located at a 2 km distance from the Taj Mahal and is a sprawling property complete with fountains, mughal decor and a large pool with a bar. While the hotel has a royal and grand feel and tasteful decor it is badly let down by its poor service and average food that is exorbitantly priced. I just visited the hotel during the independence day weekend with my husband, infant daughter and 2 friends and while we had no complaints with our rooms, we were disappointed with the food and service. Vegetarian lunch (1 dal, 1 mixed veg and raita) for 4 people was for Rs 3366 and it wasn't even appetizing. After that, we decided against having any other paid meals at the hotel. The hotel is not really child friendly - they did not have high chairs for infants. The service was ordinary - housekeeping was difficult to reach and one had to request the reception to send someone for housekeeping requests. Overall the ambience and feel is of a luxury hotel but food and service need to be improved.
