Needless to say there are tons of hotels in Shanghai. Below are a few between ranging between 300 to 2000RMB/night that I can vouch for.

Old House  – A boutique hotel in a restored lane house in the French Concession area. Decked out with Chinese antiques, it might be a little on the romantic side for some but it’s very fair priced and a cool experience.

Lapis Casa – Another boutique hotel, minutes walk from Xin Tian Di. Less ‘couple-y’ than the above and around the same price.

Green Tree Inn – Cheap and clean. An early attempt at decent budget hotels in China. OK location and very fair for the price (about 300RMB).

JW Marriot – No one I know stayed at the JW and was displeased. It’s pricier, but you know exactly what to expect from a Marriot and some China first-timers like that.

Le Royal Méridien Shanghai – I stayed here during their soft launch early last fall. The rooms were great (including a DVD player) the hotel restaurants are good and it’s right on People’s Square. It’s pricey now, but a nice option.
