Centrally located near Union Square, Hotel Nikko San Francisco is a modern getaway in a historic location. If the weather is a bit misty, you can relax in the fifth-story heated pool in the hotel's glassed-in solarium. Let the stress of the day melt away in comfortable loungers with a drink in your hand and some yummy food to munch on. Unique to Nikko is Feinstein's, an on-site nightclub that's run in part by Grammy-winning entertainer Michael Feinstein. Guests can enjoy nightly shows that range from Broadway to cabaret, all of which are just an elevator ride away from your room.

Dining

Anzu, Hotel Nikko's second-floor restaurant, specializes in what it calls "EuroJapanese" cuisine -- a mixture of Japanese dishes and French and Spanish fare. The eatery's bar is known for its sake martinis. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

 

Rooms

With 510 rooms and 22 suites, Hotel Nikko is one of the largest hotels in the Union Square area. All rooms boast views of the city skyline and San Francisco Bay. Guests are pampered by amenities such as Subarashee Yume pillow-top beds, Frette linens, large flat panel TVs, stereos and CD players. The concierge floor and suite bathrooms feature miniature televisions set inside the main vanity mirror. Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet access are available in all rooms (fees apply).

Highlights

The elegant Restaurant Anzu is considered one of San Francisco's best restaurants. All of the food is made with local ingredients to support a sustainable market, and chefs create tasty meals with a gourmet Asian flair. Their full bar hosts a 280 bottle wine list and an extensive offering of specialty cocktails and martinis. Start your day at Anzu with a hearty breakfast buffet and end it with a romantic, fine dining experience. If you wind up feeling a little bit bloated after your gourmet cuisine, head up to the Health Club for a dry sauna or refreshing steam in the steam room. Book ahead of time for a repairing Shiatsu massage at this spa-like fitness center.

Nice hotel and great location.

Hotel Nikko is really nice, first off at check in we got upgraded to a junior suite free of charge. The room was nice and comfortable. My only recommendation would be to park at the parking garage across the street it's cheaper than parking at the hotel.

Wedding anniversary

Wonderful hotel. Great location friendly staff what we loved was the indoor pool and hot tub. Well worth the $20 fee. Glass ceiling pleasant music and very quiet. Great to relax after a day of sightseeing. Later we went to the bar for cocktails before heading out to dinner Will definitely return.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

The only down side is there is no complementary shuttle! That would have been great, but if you call the front desk they can arrange one for you to get to the airport! It's only $16 a person, a taxi is more than $60!

Perfect Location

A great hotel experience. Clean, quiet and well appointed room. Perfect bar/lounge and located within 5 minutes of where we needed to be. While we didn't make use of it this time, Feinstein's has been a perfect addition as a music venue.

Nickels & Dimes - Pet Fee Nightmare

Thankfully only stayed at this expensive hotel for one night. The hotel charges for most amenities - wifi and use of the swimming pool being the most enraging. My biggest complaint was the 50 USD pet fee, which came as a huge shock. I understand that many hotels do charge a pet fee, but I thought this was excessive, especially considering my dog is a quiet, housebroken 10 lb chihuahua. Also, the guy who helped me at the front desk was super snooty. I wouldn't stay here again and wouldn't recommend it to others, especially not if you're traveling with pets.

We enjoyed our stay

While the property is rather ordinary and somewhat dated, our room was clean and very well located and the pool/spa were fantastic. I'd recommend this property at less than $200/night.
