Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theatres in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.

Dear tunon_alberto, Thank you very much for reaching out to us. I apologize for the confusion regarding the umbrella in your room. We do offer these for sale if a guest chooses; we also have umbrellas in our valet area that guests can utilize. We only charge if a guest chooses to take the umbrella home with them. Please contact us directly if you have any additional questions. Sincerely, Anna Marie Presutti, GM Hotel Nikko San Francisco

Are (well-behaved) children allowed to utilize the pool?
I believe there is an age restriction with the pool requiring children under a certain age to be accompanied by their parents. Personally I have seen many children, most well behaved, in the pool when I have stayed there.
