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
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.

Great deal, says former local

I would never have stayed at the Nikko unless someone else was paying or I got a deal of $150 per night or less--and I did. Having lived in SF for 5 years, not all too long ago, I still have a wealth of local knowledge. Nikko is in a superb location: public transit, Market St., Ferry Building, Soma. Very clean rooms, gorgeous interior, excellent location. I felt like I was living it up. No free wifi and you have to pay for the gym, but I didn't need either of those (there's free wifi 2 blocks over at Union Square). If you don't know the area, steer yourself north and east, as you'll quickly hit the seedy Tenderloin going in the other directions within 1 block. Ask staff. They'll know.

serviceable hotel

This is a stylish, immaculate hotel. We enjoyed our stay. There are some luxury details designed into the hotel but the hospitality end was lacking. The beds are comfortable. Perhaps if we spoke Japanese we would feel especially welcome and really like staying at the Nikko. We would stay there again if the location was convenient to our San Francisco activities. There was a mix-up (perhaps on Nikko's part)with our reservation and received no help from the over busy hotel staff with that.

Check in was smooth, the rooms were clean and hip but smaller then I expected. The Location is excellent. There is a lot of places to shop and eat within walking distance. Would stay here again.

Unbeatable location for the price

bathtub had no grab bars to use when getting in or out of it. also, the down pillows leaked feathers causing a potential ER visit. other than that everything else was great. the rooms were immmaculate, the staff was friendly and very helpful and shopping and dining were walking distance.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Go up two blocks on Powell to park. Do not wait for cable car in line. Will save time and this will get you going. Get 3 day pass for buses and you will be able to go every where with this pass.

Wonderful staff

The place was very nice and classy. The staff was friendly. We were able to check in 5 hours ahead of time. There is a courteous doorman and the bell desk was helpful. Couldn't ask for more from the staff.
