Late last week, Hilton announced the opening of Conrad Hangzhou, a 50-floor 324-room hotel that provides easy access to the city's downtown recreational and cultural attractions. As part of the Raffles City Hangzhou complex, the hotel is set to serve business and leisure travellers coming to this fast-developing high-tech city.
"We are thrilled to present Conrad Hangzhou as the optimal choice for travellers as we support Hangzhou's rapidly growing industries, and fulfill demand for business destinations," said Qian Jin, area president for Greater China and Mongolia, Hilton. "The opening of this property demonstrates our commitment to growing our presence across China with a well-rounded luxury portfolio. Conrad Hangzhou will consistently deliver intuitive service and inspired experiences to elevate the journeys of discerning global travellers."
Conrad Hangzhou is well situated in the emerging Qianjiang New Town Central Business District and is within walking distance to government offices, major corporate offices and shopping malls. Accessibility is also good, with easy link to the Hangzhou East Railway Station, an important transportation hub in Hangzhou and 20 kilometres from the Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport.

The eight flexible meeting rooms are equipped with advanced audio-visual and technical facilities.
