The name Pudi is a clever play on words: Chinese for boutique but the Chinese characters mean "rough jade"/"diamond in the rough". Behind the hard-to-find doors, you'll discover a dark, private place to escape the cacophony of street-side Shanghai. Focusing on privacy, art and service, Pudi prides itself on its 24/7 butlers. Rooms are comfortable, and highly recommended if you're in town for a short business stay. This is also one of the only hotels that allows your dog to stay. Call them in advance to book your best friend in.
