Riding the Maglev was anti-climatic for me... But if you do stay in the area, and are interested in sporting/outdoors equipment, visit the store DECATHLON near the station. Their products are decent and relatively well-priced for western-goods quality.

Taxi from PVG to most IHG properties will cost over RMB$100. Bring a print out of the address in Chinese before landing. (Doesn't hurt to have the local phone number (not toll free reservation number!) as well. Don't assume the taxi know where your hotel is... especially with generic name like "Holiday Inn" or "Intercontinental".
Line 2 with "a large checked bag and a roll-a-board"? Do you seriously think that's cool? I am hoping that the OP only has to endure this drill one time during his four airport-city transfers.

WRT to taxi fares to/from PVG, let's set the minimum bar at Y140, and the maximum at Y250 (assuming off peak, and somewhere far like the IC near the train station).

In all cases, these hotels are easy to find if you know their proper names.
