Pudong is the rising star of Shanghai. It is the district across the Huangpu River where the city's sky scrapers are rising into the clouds, where business and finance have migrated from all over China, and where some of the city's best hotels, restaurants and bars are springing up to impress an ever more worldly local and expat environment in the vastly cosmopolitan area around the Pearl Tower.
The Ascott in Pudong is one of the finer, more reliable options where you'll find countless suited businessmen rushing about with papers in hand and cell phones to their ears. It is truly a business hotel. The Best Western, Marriott and Four Points are similarly business focused, though you'll do well to stay at any hotel in Pudong as they all have a business center and can provide for your business-minded needs.
The Holiday In, Hilton and Intercon in Shanghai are all fancier than their sibling hotels in Europe and the US. Their interior decorating budgets can produce more glamor and class in China as materials are cheaper and labor costs are low. Thus, you'll often find brand-name hotels in China that are fancier than their coutnerparts back home. Don't rule out these mid-range hotel options while traveling in Shanghai!
