Boasting some of the most lavish and exuberant hotels in Asia, if not the world, the city also has smaller boutique options with a wide range of prices in different areas of the city. When choosing where to stay in Shanghai, know that there are plenty of hotels near most major tourist attractions in the city.

For a luxurious, five-star experience, you can’t do better than the Peninsula or the Park Hyatt Shanghai; two spots frequently listed among the best hotels in Shanghai. The Peninsula, a T+L World’s Best Award-winner, is popular for its luxurious hospitality, and amenities like portable master control panels and spa tubs, not to mention its five restaurants and bars. The Park Hyatt Shanghai, which occupies floors 79 to 93 of the Shanghai World Financial Center, is perfect for business travelers.

Boutique hotels include the Waterhouse at South Bund, a renovated warehouse full of art, and the Langham Shanghai Xintiandi, conveniently located adjacent to the Huai Hai Road, known as the Champs Elysees of the East. For eco-conscious digs, stay at URBN Hotel Shanghai, a hotel in a former factory warehouse with recycled design elements. Other wallet-friendly options include guest houses, serviced apartments, and private rooms.
