If you're in Shanghai on business then you don't need romantic lighting, frilly decorations or family friendly decor. What you need is practicality, a business center, conference rooms and functioning, high-speed internet and phone options. You need Shanghai's Business Travel Hotels.
The JW Marriott Shanghai hotel at Tomorrow Square is centrally located so you can enjoy the town after work is done. You'll find all the amenities you need as well as in-house restaurants, bars and spas if you need to work out the kinks from looking at your computer screen too long.
For another no-nonsense business-friendly hotel check into the Howard Johnson or Shari-La Hotel, both of which have everything on site you'll need while in Shanghai as well as a few pleasurable amenities like spas and a concierge ready to give city advice.
For classy lodgings where you can entertain guests and host meetings of your own, the Grand Hyatt and Portman Ritz-Carlton are excellent choices. The Hyatt is in Pudong, where most big business is conducted while the Ritz rests in Jing'an, near delicious restaurants, bars and entertainment.
