I got a great last moment deal to stay at the Nikko, my first night was cheaper than some other central city lower star hotels. Note that prices are kept down but often excluding Internet and the pool which you pay extra for. The room was on the 16th floor very comfortable and mostly quiet from the city. The only... More

We stayed for 2 nights and we were happy with location and service. We had a lovely room, really comfortable and had everything we needed. Very central, clean and located close to Union Square and other tourist locations. Easy to access bus/underground and taxi service. Would recommend this hotel.

This was the perfect ending to our hiking trip up and down through the Redwoods. Great beds, hot showers and the perfect tub to soak in. Booked massages and spent time in the hot tub. It was amazing. We had a room on the 16th floor and heard no street noise at night. Plenty of local restaurants near by giving... More

Great hotel and service. We arrived a little early and they didn't have a room available, but upgraded us to one. It was close to all major attractions and shopping. There were also many restaurants nearby to chose from.

Beautifully appointed hotel in Union Square. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Staff was also friendly and professional. Great location in Union Square walking distance from restaurants and Cable Cars. Look forward to staying there again. Only negative was the $57 parking fee. You can park in the lot down the street for only $30.

I stayed at the Hotel Nikko for a conference, so what I write relates to a conference rate room. In other words, it was smaller and perhaps on the "to-be-updated in some areas" list, but overall the room was more than adequate for my needs. The bathroom was a fine size, clean and great water pressure in the shower. The... More

Great stay. Newly remodeled rooms, new furniture and linens. Restaurant Anzu on 2nd Floor has a breakfast buffet with Japanese breakfast items. 25 floors and elevators are fast. Very easy walk to O'Ferrell BART station and a block from Union Square. Plan to take my wife on the next visit to SF and Nikko.
