Hanescu earlier caused an upset by defeating Swiss number two Stanislas Wawrinka, a favourite for the title, in the semifinals.
The Romanian, ranked 80, beat seventh-seeded Igor Andreev of Russia, 6-3, 6-4 on Sunday.
Wawrinka, a finalist in 2005, has not won a tournament in two years despite reaching a number 10 ranking.
He suffered a further blow when he and compatriot Stéphane Bohli just lost out in the doubles final to the Czech-Slovak duo of Jaroslav Lewinsky and Filip Polasek 6-3, 2-6, 9-11.
