Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts expands in China

Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts announced its expansion plan in China with the scheduled opening in 2014 of Swissôtel Changsha. The future deluxe hotel will be located in Changsha, the capital of Hunan Province and the transportation hub in south-central China. Swissôtel Changsha will be part of a mixed-use development featuring a Grade A office tower.

Swissôtel Changsha will offer 400 rooms and suites with a minimum room size of over 430 square feet, five restaurants and bars, over 21,528 square feet of meeting and banqueting space and recreational facilities including a Pürovel Spa.

The Hotel is located in the Yuelu District of Changsha, approximately 18 miles from the international airport and 9 miles from the city center. The district is known for its natural environment and is situated on the west side of Xiang River, a branch of the Yangtze River. The property is within walking distance to the Yuelu District Government and Changsha City Government.

The future Swissôtel Changsha will be near 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 railway going from Shanghai to Kunming is expected to complete in 2013, with a stop in Changsha.

Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts’ partner for this project is Enough Sunshine Real Estate Investment, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Enough Group, which is a private high-tech enterprise focusing on commercial real estate, new and renewable energy, information technology and waste management. Enough Group was founded in 1991 and headquarters in Beijing.
