If you want to be in the heart of it all, this hotel is in the perfect location. You are a block from all of the best shopping that SF has to offer. The room was clean and quite. From the valets to the reception desk, the staff was great.
Stayed at the Nikko for a 2nd time from 1/15 -1/21. Had a great experience there on a business trip 1 year ago so I brought the wife this time. She enjoyed the experience here as well. The Nikko is centrally located, just a 2 minute walk to the
cable car departing point on Powell Street, and close to the area shopping district. The Nikko is a great value compared to other hotels in the area. Well appointed rooms, friendly staff, Starbucks right in the lobby. Perfect for business or pleasure.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
If you are in town for a few days, buy a 3 day travel pass from SFMTA. It works on the cable cars, trolley, and local buses. Cable car rides are $6 apiece, and that adds up quickly. Get the 3 day pass for $26 and ride all you want.
The location of the hotel is close to all the shopping centers, Bart and bus stations. The Nikko Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. overall, we had a good experience and we will stay in this hotel again.
Although I didn't stay overnight due to an early flight, I was able to check-in early and enjoy a daytime stay. My girlfriend and I had ordered delivery, but the restaurant didnt include utensils. No problem. We contacted the front desk, and they
had room service send up some utensils within 5 minutes.
The room, although small and with a weird, narrow hallway, was amazingly comfortable and clean. The bed was like heaven, and I didn't want to leave it. The shower was nicely designed, although it could use a door. It was disorienting to use it at first.
To top things off, check-in was a breeze, there is a Starbucks connected to the hotel, and the hotel has a street-level entrance that made it easy to get in/out right from my room without having to go through the lobby. If I ever stay in SF again, I'll be looking to stay at Hotel Nikko.
This hotel was gorgeous. We stayed here because we were going to a show at Feintein's. Although I didn't love Feinstein's, the hotel was very nice. It was very clean and comfortable and in a good location. We did have to call down to the room
twice because they never got around to cleaning our room but other than that it was a good stay and I would stay here again.
This was our first time staying in the city, so we didn't really know what to expect. The Hotel Nikko is centrally located as we found out so you don't really need a car, because parking is very expensive at the hotel (like $50 a day+tax) and a
premium every where in the city. Public transportation is the best way to go, cab are expensive as well.
