Sophistication with an Asian flair and an indoor pool near Union Square

Hotel Nikko feels more like Hong Kong than San Francisco. The lobby is spacious, featuring white marble and rooms are minimalist in design. The on-site restaurant, Anzu, serves up Asian food with a Japanese focus. Distances at the on-site pool are measured in meters. Just steps from Union Square and the Moscone Convention Center, the Nikko is perfectly located for business travelers in town for conventions. At the same time, it is comfortable for families accustomed to sophisticated luxury. 

Highlights
  • Live jazz at Feinstein's at the Nikko nightclub
  • A short walk from the shops and restaurants of Union Square
  • Spacious fifth-floor indoor pool
  • Sushi and other Asian-inspired fare available at on-site restaurant Anzu

very nice hotel - however, charged 20$ for access to pool and 16$ for internet

Pros Hotel itself is quite nice, modern and clean. The rooms are tastefully furnished, beds are confortable, and the bathrooms are beautiful. Ideal location blocks away from Union square in the center of the city. Staff courteous, professional and welcoming Cons $20 for health club and 16$ for internet - seems like a rip-off nowadays where free wireless in hotels is generally the norm. Something that I would expect when paying $150 for a room. Quick solve: there is a starbucks right next door, grab a coffee and surf the net for free

Weekend get-a-way

Enjoy stay. Took advantage of the amenities; spa and pool. Location was great. Didn't like $45.00 charge for parking. I believe it should be greatly discounted for guest, not priced higher than all other surrounding parking areas. I almost decided on another hotel, because of that charge. Mulling over that charge could impact future plans to stay at the Hotel Nikko.

As advertised, nothing more or less

Great central location. Normal 4-star quality in terms of rooms, cleanliness, lobby decorations, etc. $20 to use the pool/spa is silly as is the $15 daily Wifi charge. However, those over-charges for basic amenities are expected at 4-star places. Restaurants/bars within the hotel are similarly useless in terms of value. Would stay again--never booked for amenities, just location so I'm happy.

Nice hotel for the price i paid

Overall this is a very nice hotel. The location couldn't be better. It's within walking distance to the shopping area, the museums, and the BART/MUNI station. The room was kind of small but it was well-kept. I am going to have to agree with some of the other comments I've read about too many fees. There are fees for internet access ($15.95/day#, fitness center #1-time $20 fee). Other than that, the hotel was A-OK.

Dottie's for breakfast is wonderful and within walking distace. As far as nightlife, why not do what the locals do and go to Lefty Oduls for cheap eats.

tub in the room

The room was as I had hoped. There was indeed a bathtub in our bathroom, just normal size but I didn't expect anything large for the price I paid. It was a shower/tub combo so not like in the picture. The room was quiet on the ninth floor and was clean. The pillows were fluffy and soft and the bed was comfortable. Parking was $45 a night which was more than I expected, but I suppose it's like that everywhere in san francisco. I enjoyed my one day concert vacation and hotel nikko provided the perfect room.

Excellent Hotel that happens to cater to Japanese

We had an excellent stay at this hotel. This is right downtown so the activities of the union square neighborhood can filter up to the room but it wasn't too bad. Clean, comfy bed. Decent size. Would have liked to know in advance that pool was an extra charge.
