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

Good location, excellent staff

Good location and the staff is terrific. Our room was somewhat small and furnished rather sparsely, but it was clean. If you are looking for a no-frills stay in SF, this is a good bet.

I would avoid John's Grill on Ellis St: it is overpriced, has mediocre service, and the food is average at best.

An oasis in the "Walking Dead" episode that is downtown SF

I loved the Nikko. Not because it has soul—it doesn't, really—but because it was totally professional, perfectly clean and quiet, and has a great (if kinda 80s) rooftop heated pool. The staff were all unfailingly polite. Everything worked. My king deluxe room was plenty nice for me, alone, on business (nice bedding!). No complaints. Just don't come here expecting the cool of a nice boutique. Also, I paid about 210/night, so it felt like a great deal in downtown SF.

Lovely

Great location, right in the heart of Union Square. Only thing that I didn't like is that I had to pay $20 to use the gym/pool. For the cost of the room, the gym and pool should be complimentary. Lovely stay

Single person traveling

The hotel and staff were excellant. The only drawback I could see is the location is very close to a district that single woman doesn't want to be walking in alone esp. at night. But if you know you're way around the city and are just smart about watching out for yourself, this is a good value and great area of town for food, music and the amentities within the Hotel Nikko!

The 2nd floor breakfast buffet is the bomb! Loved it!! Also visited John's grill within 2 blocks for great seafood and then hop on the F line for Fisherman's wharf! Also a must do is the Guided Bike Tour across the Golden Gate bridge!

Union Square hotel

A beautiful hotel in perfect location to walk in San Francisco. Clean, friendly staff. We were on 14th floor with great city view. Unfortunately we arrived from hawaii in the early morning and could not get an early check in but they did hold our luggage while we spent a day in the city.

last minute luxury

Everyone was extremely friendly. My husband was impressed that even the maids stopped to say hello. I loved the sample of wine at check in. I have since bought the bottle twice. The room was immaculate and comfortable. My favorite resturant HANA ZEN is right next door. We have stayed at the Parc 55 and Handlery on this street as well as the Inn at Union Square and Palace Hotel. This was the best deal at $165 a night. When I went to do this adventure again with my mom the room was $400. I guess there was something going on in SF.
