Woodville Palace Hotel, Shimla, Himachal PradeshBacked by a hillside covered with trees of tall Himalayan cedar - the fabled 'deodar' - Woodville is a stately art-deco mansion. From 1865 to 1881, the site held the residence of the British Commanders-in-Chief of the Indian army. In 1938, Raja Sir Bhagat Chandra of Jubbal, had the old house removed and in its place, the present structure was created by a body of Pathan and Chinese workmen.

The terraced lawns and a façade bearded with trimmed Virginia vines, is complemented by an evocative interior - complete with select objects d` art, hunting trophies and even signed photographs of Hollywood's 'golden age' stars.
