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

Nice getway in SF

Stayed for a night while seeing a show locally. Staff was very welcoming and we had a great stay. Glass of wine during checkin definitely helps kick off your relaxing stay.

Worth the money

This hotel is perfectly placed in the Union Square area of downtown San Francisco. The lobby and restaurants of this hotel are very high class. The rooms are a little small, and the furniture is a bit old. The bathrooms in the rooms are huge though, with a separate shower and tub and seated mirrored area for women to apply makeup. It was definitely the highlight of the stay. The elevators were also very nice. Overall, you definitely get the 4 star feeling when you stay at Nikko and feel like high society when you stay, but it's probably time for them to replace some furniture in the rooms.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The Powell St BART (subway) station is only 3 small city blocks from the hotel and takes less than 30 minutes from the SFO terminal. Once at the hotel, you can take Muni, BART, or cable cars to almost every tourist attraction in the Bay Area. Parking is very difficult, so you may consider not renting a car and using public transportation for your stay.

Hotel Nikko--modern and convenient

Stayed at Hotel Nikko for a large international conference. Though the room was small, it was very modern and contempoary in design. Bed was extremely comfortable and bathroom was spacious. The workout facility was nice, though there is a ten dollar charge for its use.

Bait and switch

I liked the hotel but on check-in was given a "shabby" room with peeling furniture and not clean carpet. I asked for a better room (like the pictures of the deluxe king I booked) and was given one. This happened on one other occassion when I booked through Orbitz at the Hotel Nikko

Purchase MUNI multi-day pass for cable cars, buses, street cars, and subway. The BART train goes from airport to Powell Street station which is an easy walk to the Hotel.

Excellent hotel near Unon Square

Excellent hotel. Service is very good, location near Union Square is great - close enough, but not noisy. The bed and pillows are the best of the top rated SF hotels. Get a room with breakfast included -- this is a super breakfast that includes foods for everyone's diet, full American, Japanese or healthy at the buffet. I usually like to stay at boutique hotels, but this offers the best of a boutique and a large hotel.

Weekend Retreat

The location of this hotel is great, two blocks from Union Square and two blocks from San Francisco Shopping Center. This means there are tons of shopping & dining options within a 5 minute walk. It is on the "tenderloin" side of union square, so you need to make sure you walk in the right direction when leaving the hotel. It is also very close to many public transportation options, including the cable car line, BART, muni and the streetcars. You can get anywhere you need to go in the city without needing to rent a car. The room was very clean and comfortable. It was a little on the small side, but all hotel rooms in San Francisco are similar. This was a great hotel for a weekend getaway. It was a great price and provided similar accommodations to many of the more expensive 4-star boutique hotels in the area.

This hotel is only 2 blocks from the BART station, so transfers to/from either SFO or OAK airport are really easy and inexpensive (about $7 vs. $40-$80 for a cab).

The Hotel Nikko Rocks!

This was my 2nd trip to the Hotel Nikko in San Francisco! This time, I went with my 9 year old daughter. Our room was a petite queen, which for the money, I would step up and go for the deluxe king, which I had before. It is not that much more, and worth it. Our room was small, but clean, and quiet. It had everything we needed. We were shopping in the city for the holidays. After being on our feet all day shopping, we decided to use the pool facilities, which were very nice. an inside pool and hot tub, and in the lady's locker room, {no charge for lockers, but a one time $10 charge to use the gym-pool-locker)a sauna, steam room, and tons of fresh clean towels!!!! not to mention clean spa type showers! relaxing, and peaceful to say the least! then back up to our nice quiet room with nice crisp sheets, and a great mattress. I will stay in this hotel again. For the money, you get quite a deal.
