The Hotel Nikko is about a block away from union square. It is also about a block away from Powell station (Bart/Metro). The rooms are of a decent size. Pretty much everything you would expect is provided. Decor is a little bit bland. All of the hotels in SF are expensive. The Hotel Nikko is no different. The free wifi... More

The staff are nice, the views are stunning from the higher floors, and the wifi is pretty strong. But where this place becomes The Dream hotel is the Japanese toilet.... More

This is certainly a nice hotel, but pricey. It's in a good, but not great, location. Rooms are modest in size, clean, and beds very comfortable. Room carpeting could use a serious stain removal, or entire replacement. Furniture is a bit battered and scarred. Sliding closet doors were off their tracks and almost impossible to use effectively. Typically for a... More

Seriously, a $25 supplement to use the onsite gym? Pool area looked nice, but the gym itself needs a huge refresh to justify charging guests for use. Equipment is standard hotel fare and not "real gym" quality. These are the the kinds of BS little irritations/friction points that as a business traveler will cause me to choose another hotel next...

I had the opportunity to stay at the Nikko on two recent business trips. I found the hotel to be very friendly and inviting, with staff that was always professional and courteous. Although I did not get the chance to enjoy them it does offer many amenities; restaurant, lounge, dog park and a massive 40K sq ft fitness area. The... More

This hotel is really close to union square, one of my favourite spots in sfo. Staff is polite and very helpful! Rooms are clean and well mantained. The hall is very nice and the sushi restaurant could be a nice alternative after a long day. I would definitely recomend it! If I'll stop by again in the beautiful sfo I... More

We always stay here when in SF. Hotel is clean and modern. Bed comfortable with fresh linen. Eco friendly towel reuse system. I did not realize how water bottle has become expensive. It is $6.50( Voss). Anzu restaurant here is great place to eat. But we try to go to different restaurants every time we are here. But if we... More

The hotel is centrally located. It's a couple of blocks from Westfield, a downtown shopping center anchored by Nordstrom. It's also couple of blocks from Macy's and Saks. Walking distance to Chinatown and Powell BART/Muni station. It's also, however, close to Tenderloin part of town where I would be careful walking especially at night. The King Deluxe rooms were decent... More

Beautiful Hotel, great facilities, but most of all, everyone was extremely helpful....from the concierge to the housekeeper, door staff and front desk. Everyone goes out of there way to ensure a trouble free visit. A quick shout out to Ann (front desk manager). We had one minor hiccup, (an issue with the shower) Ann didn't miss a beat and without...
