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

Great Conference Location

I had a conference at this hotel several years ago and when I saw that another conference was going to be here, I signed up right away! My wife and I love the location of this hotel because of it's proximity to Union Square and all of it's shopping opportunities, but especially because of the many quality but diverse restaurants within a short walking distance from the hotel. We were here for 4 days and never ate at the same restaurant more than once except for the breakfast buffet at Anzu, because it was included with our room rate on the Imperial Club floor. Having the beautiful 24 hr gym to workout in and high speed internet access all included in our room rate with the daily buffet breakfast was indeed a bargain! [...] I was able to upgrade to the Imperial Club floor with all of it's amenities and still save $13 per night over the special rate we received for attending the conference there!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

If you get a chance, go to the top floor of Macy's down the street and eat at the Cheesecake Factory! They have an incredible number of menu selections to choose from. During dinner hours, I would go right up and sign in, then go shopping at Macy's until it's close to the time for your table to be ready because it can be a long wait otherwise.

Great Getaway

This was a beautiful hotel with really clean rooms. I came here to relax and just spend a weekend to unwind and this hotel helped me do just that. The location was perfect, close to shops and great places to eat!

Great location, friently staff, heating/cooling system a little lacking

The location, staff, cleanliness and bathroom were excellent. The hotel has steam heat and we found the system lacking. We visited at the end of November and the heating system seemed non-existent. When we called the staff, they were very efficient in sending a repairman. He made an adjustment which put the heat over the top and we were unable to cool the room. Just couldn't seem to fine tune the adjustments. Although this was a little uncomfortable, the positives would definitely bring us back. We visit San Francisco once a year and will probably stay again next year. It is very convenient to Union Square, the Muni, and Bart (which we took from the Airport at a cost of $5.25 per person). Fast, convenient and very reasonable.

Hotel Nikko Japanese Chic

The property is beautiful in an exciting part of the city just blocks from Union Square, the cable car station and Powell Street Bart Station. The hotel itself is well kept, clean, and beautiful inside. The rooms are clean, The bedding is crisp and the mattress is very comfortable. The room is quiet with very little sound coming from the other patrons or the hallway outside. The elevators are fast and little time is spent waiting for one. The workout room has all the latest equipment was a great way to stay in shape. The hotel even has an outside balcony from the pool you can sun on in the heart of the city. The only issue I had with the hotel was the parking situation. The overnight cost of using parking was 14% higher for hotel patrons over someone who does not stay at the hotel. I recommend using the parking structure across the street rather than using the hotels parking service.

My review of Hotel Nikko San Francisco

The Hotel Nikko San Francisco was very nice. The staff at check-in was very friendly and the concierge was very helpful. The room was spacious for two people; two queen beds. The bathroom had a separate shower and a tub. The hotel was in walking distance of shopping and restaurants.

A full service hotel with extraordinarily helpful staff

Although located in an overly busy downtown San Francisco district that attracts tourists to the Cable Car, Market Street, and all that goes with that, this hotel is an oasis of calm and quiet elegance. We found unusual assistance in everything from an early arrival to hotel transportation and information about other locations we were seeking. The rooms were very clean and nicely appointed. One of the best hotels I have stayed in in the last 2-3 years.

great location, union ...

great location, union square is the place to be, lots of great shopping around, some restaurants, easy access to tourist information center, MUNI, BART, bus lines. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Room was quiet, daily newspaper, clean, bathroom + furniture top notch. Downside: 1-too many scary homeless people on every street corner(not hotel management fault), 2- mini bar items are very expensive and you cant move (and i mean move) anything in it or you get automatically charged for the item as it is electronically billed to your room even though you did not eat/drink it! (so weird), on top of that, you cant put anything inside that mini bar cause if you move anything (read above). OVERALL i recommend this hotel.
