The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Agra is selling rooms during several weeknights in July and August for $49. Now hotel rates in India are at a historic low (seen from a dollar perspective) in general.
However this NEW hotel is a great base to explore Agra and especially the Taj Mahal.
And now on August 1st the hotel will also be able to serve alcohol 🙂
In my experience India underwhelms a bit for many travelers but hotels usually overwhelm.
