We had a very nice stay at the Nikko, although the start of our stay was a little bumpy (4 tries on the room: wrong room, construction dust in the next one, then inferior room, finally a winner at 1901). Although this was a pain since we had just arrived and wanted to relax after our long flight, the hotel staff was nothing but accommodating and courteous.
Room 1901 has nice view, is quiet, and has good light. King size bed was quite comfy and good space in the bathroom. As part of the room mix-up the hotel also gave us access to the Imperial Lounge on 23 - this was great because they have happy hour and snacks from 5-7 and breakfast. I highly recommend staying in a room that provides this access.
The location is good if you are a first time visitor - you can walk many places or take quick cab rides. But be warned it is in the middle of tourist craziness. Also, if you walk a few blocks south or west into SOMA or Mission you get into some pretty sketchy areas.
The hotel does charge extra for health club/pool access ($20/day), which seems a bit much considering how pricey the rooms are. But on the flip side the wifi is excellent and free.
