A NEW W HOTEL OPENS ITS DOOR AT CHINA’S "CITY OF STAR"
The new W Changsha offers such creative design inspired by space travel.
W Hotels Worldwide, part of Marriott International, is set to open its newest property in the capital and largest city in Hunan province, China, with the opening of W Changsha.
The first W in central China, W Changsha is owned by the Hunan Yunda Industry Group and is conveniently positioned in the city's commercial and shopping sector. The hotel represents the vibrant spirit of the future and multi-dimensional metropolis with its provocative and creative design inspired by space travel.
Global Brand Leader W Hotels Worldwide Tom Jarrold said that Changsha is one of the most influential markets in both travel and business.
“Cities such as Changsha, with their future-focused residents and fast-growing millennial luxury market who crave the new and unexpected, are playgrounds of limitless possibilities for W,” he added.
Easily accessible, W Changsha is within a 30-minute drive to the Changsha Huanghua International Airport, a 15-minute drive to the Changsha South Railway Station, and connects directly to the Beijing-Hong Kong-Macau Expressway.
W Changsha, designed by Cheng Chung Design (H.K.) Ltd. takes creative risks with bold new design shapes that celebrate Changsha's rich tradition and modernity.
Changsha is also known as "Star City" in China. The hotel's design concept is inspired by the city's identity, which features bold geometric designs mixed with contemporary avant-garde artwork.
Whimsical artwork such as the Schrodinger's Cat series and the Zeta art installations, which were exclusively commissioned by the hotel, explore the wonder of the cosmos through the W perspective, generating unexpected encounters throughout the property.
An out-of-this-world welcome
While arriving at W Changsha, you will be greeted by the iconic W logo, which is illuminated to replicate the moon's surface.
“Avenue of the Stars,” a mixed-media landscape combining digital, interactive, and sound art, then transports you to Runway, a destination bar in the Living Room. It’s the brand’s signature, socially driven spin on the traditional hotel lobby.
Within the backdrop of Changsha's local custom and culture, the "Pepper Man" sculpture invites guests to look up and marvel anew at the wonders of space.
Take guests straight to space
The property has 345 guest rooms and suites with modern luxuries and high-tech amenities. It will take you straight to space through the walls depicting planets, constellations, and nebula discoveries via “meow eye cabin”, an LED screen that simulates space exploration.
After work or play, you can relax by the reflection pool or splash around in WET®, a large pool featuring a three-meter 'Space Cat' sculpture.
The fully-equipped FIT fitness center offers weights and cardio as well as heart-pumping dance classes to burn calories before the celebration begins again. What's better is, it opens 24/7.
For those of you who live by the brand’s 'Detox. Retox. Repeat' philosophy, AWAY SPA awaits to restore and revive the glow.
Perfect for any event
The triple-story Extreme-WOW Suite (the brand's take on the presidential suite) spans the 26th to the 28th floors. Includes more than 1,000 square meters of living and leisure space, including a private garden and a swimming pool, making it an ideal venue for private events complemented by the hotel's signature service.
With more than 1,000 square meters of function space across five flexible rooms, W Changsha offers limitless possibilities for hosting both work and social gatherings. A graffiti and pop art "Fist Bump" sculpture—the universal representation of a cordial greeting—awaits as you gather in the foyer before a lively event.
Every meeting room is multifunctional and equipped with the latest audiovisual technology adapted to specific event requirements. You can take a break between meetings at W Recess, the hotel's innovative take on a coffee break, which offers a diverse beverage and food selection to improve any event.
A dazzling drinking and dining scene
W Changsha has three restaurants and a destination bar, making it the newest eating hotspot for local foodies. TROPICS, the hotel’s all-day restaurant, creates an immersive experience with its open-concept kitchen. They serve both local and international food.
Then there’s SHINN YENN, a colorful Hunanese restaurant that highlights the region’s spicy cuisines and promotes Changsha’s culture through food and art. Every evening, the dining experience is enhanced with a fascinating live cabaret act infused with Hunan traditional opera.
While RUNWAY is the hotel’s destination bar at night. Where you can take center stage to see and be seen. Electrifying musical performances fill the bar, that pair perfectly with handcrafted cocktails and light bites.
