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

Would return here

$15.95 for Wi-Fi for three devices. $20 for the fitness center, no magnified shaving/makeup mirror. Those are ALL of my complaints. So, I like this place: taff is great, other amenities (besides lack of mag. mirror) are fine, it's nice that the mini-bar fridge has a small area for guest's use.

Great room, view, staff

I booked last minute and got a great deal on a room, then was upgraded to a junior suite by the kind & attentive staff. The suite had an amazing view and was very comfortable. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great trip!

I had a great time in San Fran! The location was amazing, staff was super helpful, the room was in great condition. It was a little small but for a long weekend, it served it's purpose. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it was a little pricey. Everything cost extra, water was $6, wifi cost extra, gym costs extra, etc. But other than that, I loved it!

Lefty O 'Douls was about a 5 minute walk around the corner and had THE best bartender I've ever met. They have live entertainment that was great too!

Room is small

Spent New Year's Eve here. The room I got was smaller than I expected. Aside from that, staying here was great because of the location, security and convenience (bar and restos, Starbucks in the hotel).

Perfect location & Great service!

I stayed 11 nights through Christmas and New Year. Everything was great. The staff was really nice from check-in to check-out. I didn't have any trouble during the travel. The location is literally a minute walk from Union Square. The room was clean and neat, smelled good. One thing that could be improved is that if they extend breakfast roomservice time. 8:30am is kinda early for me to have breakfast when I slept late the last night :)

Sophisticated

The Nikko is a lovely hotel. The flowers are memorable in that their placement and colors were well-selected. The bed was too soft and the pillows too hard, in my opinion. The concierge, Ernesto, is all one could hope for ! I went to see the David Hockney Exhibit. I shopped a bit at Gumps, I visited and dined with a friend in Piedmont, and I went to Tartine Bakery, which was so crowded, and I understand why! I would consider The Nikko again. The other hotels I have stayed are The Stanford Court and The St. Francis hotels. I'm sorry I didn't stay another 3 days to, at least, enjoy the Fienstein Bar and more museums and shopping. It's a lovely city. The Tenderloin area serves as a reminder that all Americans need to address poverty.

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!

Well run hotel with lovely decor, good beds, great restaurant. Pool area not great because of slippery floor and difficult entrances to jacuzzi and pool. Otherwise, a great experience and location.
