If you're just in shanghai for a few days its not a problem. Leave 1,5 hours to get souvenirs near the yu garden, an hour for the garden itself, and the rest is perfect for the free evenings. Go dowm Nanjing Road to the Bund, make pictures, go up have a cocktail at bar rouge, take more pictures, then head to the light tunnel, cross tje river climb to tje bar on the top of the world financial center. Then hit one of the bar streets for more drinks and finish it off before 5 am with the best sttret seafood om earth near the fraser residince. Or you can start from the other side of the river with the bar at the financial center if you're there first.

Many sights were close by this hotel. It was easy to get most places by foot and if not, a short inexpensive cab ride will get you where you want to go.
