Originally built by an aristocrat as a summer retreat, Hotel Springfield's is a charming boutique hotel which specializes in hospitality. The setting in Little Shimla, or Chotta Shimla to the residents, is more tranquil then the main Mall and complemented by the four-acre estate that houses the heritage properties which make up the hotel. Just 11 high ceiling and spacious suites are available, furnished with original period pieces, lavish fabrics, and authentic touches, including open fireplaces and wooden floors. Despite the rustic charm, suites are equipped with a satellite TV and international phones. The range of indoor and garden games provide pleasant entertainment, and the staff specializes in buffet bonfires on the grounds.
