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

Faded Glory

i had stayed at the nikko a few years ago and was happy with my stay. this time, however, everything about it - including the location which is overrun with homeless people - was a little down at the heels. my room was inexpensive ($300) but absolutely tiny. two people would have had a difficult time walking around the bed. also, their cable channels are very limited - no hgtv!

Business trip

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.

Dissappointed

Thought more highly of the name. Room was ridiculously small and I think there was fungus on the grout around the bathtub.

Every Little Thing Costs

The Hotel Nikko had impressive marble floors in the expansive lobby, which I guess is part of being a four-star hotel. Our room was comfortable (the beds were really comfortable), though the layout wasn't conducive to two people working comfortably on their laptops. Though the room was clean, I noticed that the woodwork hadn't been wiped, espectially the bathroom door. The iron leaked. Wireless internet cost $10 a day per computer;the fitness center cost $10 per day, per person; food prices were laughable, but since the Union Square area has many interesting and reasonable restaurants, that didn't effect us. We didn't read that the minibar, or whatever you call it, is equipped with sensors to charge you if you move something, until we'd picked up a bottle to look at it. Our mistake. Checking in and out was a breeze and the people were lovely and even though parking cost over $40 per day, the parking staff were wonderful.

We had a wonderful breakfast at Cafe Mason, half a block away and two lovely breakfasts at the Bean Cafe, five or six blocks away--and there are many, many more restaurants to choose from.

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.
