Fairmont Wuhan is situated in the capital of Hubei province at a significant transportation interchange, with river, road and rail links stretching outwards from its center to the rest of the country, and the world beyond.

Fairmont Wuhan is part of a mixed use development adjacent to an expansive shopping mall and encircled by high end residential and commercial towers. It is a 30 minutes’ drive to Wuhan Tianhe International Airport and 5 minutes to Hankou Railway Station.
