The InterContinental Changsha was a pleasant surprise. It's beautifully built and it's river view rooms are well laid out, giving you a spacious panoramic view of the Xiang river. The room has its
own wrap-around verandah where you can sit high above the river and watch the boat traffic or the sunset. At nights there are fireworks and light shows to entertain.
The Club Lounge is well laid out and offers the standard Club style breakfast. Staff are friendly and helpful, if a little lacking in English.
The hotel has an excellent Bar on the top floor that is popular with the upper class local crowd. They have foreign signers performing and offer good cocktails. Sit out on their deck if the weather permits.
The only drawback is the location, which is in a newer development area, slightly out of walking distance from the city center. Aside from that, I highly recommend this property [Less]
