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

unforseen charges

Hotel was beautiful and yes, in the heart of SF. I often stay at lovely hotels. It was a first that while checking in... they offered me a complimentary glass of wine. The stem glasses were displayed beautifully behind the counter. Nice touch!! *This helped with the sting of multiple unexpected charges of: $50- for daily parking, $20- daily for the use of the pool, and $16- for daily use of the internet. Movies averaged $20- too. Hmmm.... Relaxing was definately harder because I'd suddenly blown my budget! Not cool- who charges to use the pool?

Nice hotel. But not fantastic.

Pleasant enough hotel, very clean so no complaints there. However for amount paid and for the quality of hotel you can get it was a bit lacking.

Micro-Queen is tiny, basic

This hotel many wonderful elements, especially the glorious pool. But the "micro-queen" room we got for a discounted rate here is so small it was challenging to maneuver. Worse though is that the affordable rate I secured here didnt include the outrageous $50 parking fee per night, or the $50 fee per night to have our small dig with us . The pool is now a $20 fee as well, and internet is $16. So we ended up paying an unexpected additional $200!

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.

When entering the hotel the lobby and exterior are not that impressive. They definitely need a facelift! Rooms are nice but small. Location is great. Tough to get spa service on the weekend.

could be better

I used the hotel for a conference which was being held there. I upgraded to a 2-bedroom when my friend decided to attend the conference with me. The first night (Friday) was fine; however, housekeeping came when my friend was taking a nap at about 2:30 PM, so she told them to come back later. She left the room at 3:00 PM, but housekeeping never did come back and the room never got cleaned.

Hotel Nikko

Great location. Walking distance to many sites and transportation access. Only complaint is that in the standard room, they offer a "petite queen." It is so small, it's actually a full size. Very small. Was very disappointed that such a prestigious and highly rated hotel had such a small and uncomfortable bed. Have been wanting to stay here for many years that we've been visiting San Francisco. Was truly disappointed with the bed. The hotel tries to offer an upgrade that comes with a King size bed. Seemed like they wanted to "nickel & dime" us with that offer. They should just get rid of those beds.
