Bustling Shanghai has as wide a range of hotels as you can ask for, whether you're on a big budget or a shoestring. Upscale Western chain hotels abound, and recent years have seen a growth in boutique hotels and even bed and breakfasts. Budget hotels may be a little older and harder to find. Popular neighborhoods for tourists include the downtown Huangpu area and the pretty French Concession district.
