The Oberoi Cecil

The Oberoi Cecil is a 130-year old heritage hotel which was once the most exclusive of hotels in Shimla, known for its fabulous ballroom dances and fashionable clientele. Now under Oberoi management, and extensively restored, this upmarket property has added considerable comfort and style but still retains much of its colonial charm. The property is located at the end of bustling Mall Road, ideal for sightseeing and independent exploration, and is announced by a crisp, white façade. Inside, a lobby punctuated with marble fireplaces leads guests to a comfortable lounge, which is lit from above by a skylight that spans the length and breadth of the hotel's signature atrium. The main restaurant, found in the grand ballroom, serves a wide range of fine international, pan-Indian and local Himachali dishes. There is also a spa, activity centre, and free Wi-Fi throughout.
