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

perfect mom-daughter time

Overall great. A room with two queen beds is much bigger and nicer than a room with one king bed. Loved complimentary breakfast at Anzu -- both continental and oriental selections available. GREAT LOCATION

Staycation

We live in San Francisco but wanted to experience being tourists! The location is convenient to MUNI, BART and Cable cars! The ground transportation took us over the city but the shops are just a few steps away! The indoor pool was awesome with the shallow end being only 2.5 feet! Great for my little ones!

Wedding anniversary

Wonderful hotel. Great location friendly staff what we loved was the indoor pool and hot tub. Well worth the $20 fee. Glass ceiling pleasant music and very quiet. Great to relax after a day of sightseeing. Later we went to the bar for cocktails before heading out to dinner Will definitely return.

Lovely accommodations

We got lost trying to find the hotel, the name was not displayed easily, but we did have a scenic drive uphill and down, and around one way streets along the way. The hotel had a lovely Asian decor, as were the rooms. The room was simple and elegant, but felt a little cramped. The location was convenient to all the shopping, and restaurants were within walking distance. The staff were friendly and helpful and elegant to match the decor.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

John's Grill 1908, is a famous historic steakhouse down the street, and the food was delicious. The restaurant has an extensive celebrity list to view while you are on the waiting list. Located across the street from the hotel, we found it very convenient, since we were tired and didn't want to drive anymore. It helped to make the evening very pleasant.

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.

Excellent Hotel

I would recommend this hotel to everyone! Beds were comfortable, room was clean and staff was friendly & helpful. It is a few blocks from union square so be prepared to walk to catch the transit systems.

Nikko Hotel San Francisco

We were in San Francisco to see a Giants baseball game. We usually stay at the Hilton but they were full. I had heard good things about the Nikko Hotel and it was great. Our room was large and spacious. We had a beautiful view. I'd stay there again.

The room was really great and the all the people were nice. I was surprised to find that the pool had a extra charge and there was not wi-fi and if you wanted to use your computer you had to pay a fee. Parking was also a extra charge and it was vary pricie.

Loved the Nikko!

We arrived late and only stayed for a night, but Nikko really wowed us. The staff was phenomenal, friendly, and helpful. We did not have a chance to check out Anzu, the in hotel restaurant, but the roomservice food was superb and of restaurant quality. The complimentary breakfast said continental when we arrived, but in the morning it was a huge spread with everything one could want for breakfast. Good location, good food, cool hotel, and great staff and service. We will definitely be staying at the Hotel Nikko next time we are in SF.
