Swisstel Hotels & Resorts has signed a new hotel in Changsha, the capital of Hunan Province, China.

Swisstel Changsha will be part of a mixed-use development featuring a Grade A office tower, and is scheduled to open in 2014.

Swisstel Changsha will offer 400 rooms and suites with a minimum room size of 40m2, five restaurants and bars, over 2000m2 of meeting and banqueting space and recreational facilities including a Provel Spa.

The hotel is located in the Yuelu District of Changsha, approximately 30km from the international airport and 15km from the city centre.

Situated on the west side of Xiang River, a branch of the Yangtze River, the hotel is within walking distance to the Yuelu District Government and Changsha City Government.

The future Swisstel Changsha will be just steps away from a metro station, which will be operational in 2014, connecting the eastern and western parts of the city with its Line 2.

In addition, a major high-speed railway going from Shanghai to Kunming is expected to complete in 2013, with a stop in Changsha.

Changsha is one of the most important economic centres in the country, and as the entertainment capital of China it is a year-round attraction for visitors, said Meinhard Huck, President of Swisstel Hotels & Resorts. Swisstel Changsha is another important step in our expansion in China, where we already manage several five-star hotels, and it is significant for the growth of our brand recognition in Asia.
