The best hotel award went to the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur India.
One of the largest private residences in the world, Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, India, was built between 1928 and 1943 for Maharaja Umaid Singh, CNN reported.
TripAdvisor’s global hotels list, released Wednesday, is among several lists of top hotels in various categories. Set amid 26 acres of lush gardens, there are 64 hotel rooms and suites within the Art Deco palace.
A night at the hotel costs over $700.
