The Radisson Hangzhou Qianjiang hotel has opened in the new city center district of Qianjiang Century City in Hangzhou, the capital of China's Zhejiang province, and is a first for the brand.

The property has 186 guestrooms and suites, while public spaces include an all-day restaurant with an interactive show kitchen, a specialty Chinese restaurant with private dining rooms, a lobby lounge, a ballroom that can accommodate 740 meeting attendees and a smaller space for up to 120. (A smaller meeting room and VIP room also are available.) The property has a heated indoor pool and a fitness center.

Gary Ye, VP/operations, China, at Radisson Hotel Group, said, "Hangzhou is the perfect fit for Radisson; a regional center of business and tourism, a key provincial gateway and part of the booming Yangtze River Delta region. This vibrant city is already visited by over four million international travelers every year and many millions more domestic guests."

One of the largest cities in eastern China, Hangzhou is a major commercial center and tourism destination. The city’s West Lake area is a UNESCO World Heritage site and Hangzhou has been selected as the host city of the 2022 Asian Games. Known as the “Silicon Valley of China,” the Hangzhou Hi-Tech Industrial Development Zone (HHTZ) is home to Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba and major multinational companies such as Motorola, Nokia and Siemens.
