Hilton Zhuzhou is proud to serve customers in the key location of the Changsha-Zhuzhou-Xiangtan Golden City Delta.
The design concept of the guest rooms is a modern take on Zhuzhou's heritage and the majority of the hotel's 368 rooms and suites feature spectacular views of the Xiang River. Quality in-room amenities include Hilton Serenity® beds, a generously-sized desk, wireless internet access, IPTV, a bathroom with a separate shower and bathtub, as well as Peter Thomas Roth® toiletries.
For meetings and events, the hotel has more than 3,000 square meters of conference and banquet space, with nine meeting rooms and a 1,280-square meter pillar-less ballroom that can accommodate up to 1,000 people. All meeting spaces are equipped with state-of-the-art audio visual and lighting systems and large freight elevators to serve the meeting spaces directly. The hotel's business center provides full corporate facilities and 24-hour services to meet guests' business needs. Whether the occasion is a large international conference, an exhibition or a wedding, Hilton Zhuzhou's dedicated team will work to ensure a successful and memorable event.

- Two@2 Bar is situated on the second floor. Based on the idea of a liquid lab, this lounge has a lively, casual atmosphere and a fine selection of local and imported beers, as well as freshly-prepared finger food. An impressive wine list, a live band and a mixologist complete the picture.
