CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#GoGrand–Grand Hyatt Changsha, the first Grand Hyatt hotel in China’s Hunan
Province, celebrated its grand opening today. The 354-room hotel crowns
a 61-story tower on prestigious Xiangjiang Road, offering breathtaking
views of Xiang River and the city skyline. A riverfront landmark just
steps from Changsha’s historic sites, Grand Hyatt Changsha is expected
to be the destination for impressive views and unforgettable
dining experiences in the heart of this cosmopolitan city.

“We are thrilled to bring the Grand Hyatt brand to the vibrant city of
Changsha, and to further expand the brand’s presence in central China,”
said Christopher Koehler, vice president and managing director of China
Operations, Hyatt. “The opening of Grand Hyatt Changsha echoes Hyatt’s
development strategy, which is to focus on cities and markets where
guests are traveling. With the great support of our owner, Huayuan
Group, we are very confident that guests will experience welcoming
luxury and best-in-class restaurants at Grand Hyatt Changsha, while also
creating memorable experiences in this wonderful destination.”

Grand Hyatt Changsha is ideally located in the vibrant Tianxin district,
the cultural and commercial heart of the city. Guests can delve into
Changsha’s unique history, architecture and food culture at Pozi Street
and Taiping Old Street, enjoy the scenic riverside promenade of Du Fu
Pavilion or visit high-end shopping mall Hisense Plaza, which is
directly beneath the hotel. An ideal base for both business and leisure
travelers, the hotel is a 45-minute drive from Huanghua International
Airport and Changsha South high-speed railway station. Additionally, the
hotel is a 20-minute walk to Wuyi Business District and is nearby Middle
Xiangjiang Road metro station.

Arrival Experience

When guests arrive in the lobby, they will feel the crimson magnificence
of the autumn maple trees on Yuelu Mountain and Xiang River. The red
spice of Hunan’s legendary cuisine and the city’s energetic nightlife
inspire the vibrant ambience. Bold crimson tints, rich textures and a
sophisticated art collection provide a poignant cultural backdrop for
Changsha’s showpiece of contemporary living.


Conceived by the renowned Singapore hotel design firm LTW Designworks,
the hotel’s interiors create a strong sense of locale. The design
concept is inspired by two classic Chinese red-ink wash paintings: Changsha
by Fu Baoshi and Ten Thousand Hills in Red by Li Keran. The hotel
design makes dramatic use of the unique Chinese red shades from these
traditional ink wash paintings. The constant flow and energy of Xiang
River and Chinese historical motifs are also referenced in the natural
textures and an impressively curated collection of contemporary artworks
and sculptures richly displayed throughout the hotel.

Grand Hyatt Changsha features 354 contemporary guestrooms, including 31
suites, located on levels 46 to 61. The spacious rooms welcome guests
into a modern Asian sanctuary styled with red textured walls,
ochre-leather paneling, intricate Oriental patterned carpets and
streamlined bespoke furnishings. Floor-to-ceiling windows command
breathtaking high-rise views of the city or Xiang River from both the
bedroom and bathroom.


An abundance of local and international cuisine await at the hotel’s
five restaurants and bars. Guests can savor Hunan’s legendary spicy
cuisine and nation-wide favorite specialty Peking duck at Chinese
restaurant Xiangjiang 36, and prime cut meats grilled on your
table at BBQ. Guests can also social and enjoy a sip at CASA
, a captivating social lounge featuring a mezzanine cocktail
bar and outdoor garden with live performances as well as authentic
Italian delicacies. With 39-foot (12-meter) ceilings and dramatic
lighting, the Grand Café showcases gourmet meals that are
designed around the concept of culinary theater. Overlooking the hotel’s
grand lobby, The Lounge is the elegant crossroads of Changsha,
where travelers and locals can relax, dine, meet and work in style.

extraordinary at Grand Hyatt Changsha. More than 37,000 square feet
