The Perfect Staycation
My husband and I live in San Francisco, but needed a one-night getaway from our daily routine. Hotel Nikko fit the bill perfectly. We chose the Nikko for its heated pool and steam rooms, but were delighted with the other amenities, including a very reasonable upgrade which allowed us access to the Japanese and Western breakfast buffet -- for someone who subsists on a very restricted diet, it was a treat to have unlimited misoshiru and sticky rice in the morning! The service was excellent, from the moment we walked through the hotel doors to the moment we exited them. Not a fan of corporate-mandated hospitality, I got the feeling the staff genuinely enjoyed working at the Nikko; their hospitality appeared authentic, and that was the most luxurious amenity of all -- the feeling that I was, indeed, a welcome guest and that I need not worry about anything. Five stars. We will be back!

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay. We love that you were delighted with your accommodations, our cuisine and our hospitality. Please come back
We always wanted to visit San Francisco!
From the very moment we arrived, it was love! Nikko staff know how to make you feel welcome and well taken care of. The room was just as expected. The property was fabulous and the location couldn't have been better. Concierge was so very helpful and EVERYONE was happy to help. On a side note, the hamburger and fries from room service was the best burger I've ever had!
I found the Hotel Nikko one of the best hotels
I travel somewhat frequently for work and pleasure, and I found the Hotel Nikko one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. The service, room, restaurant, decor, amenities, and attention to detail all earn 5 stars. The location is perfect for business, shopping, and entertainment options, too.
I really enjoyed my stay
I've stayed at this hotel numerous times and it has exceeded my expectations every time. Jason Ngo, front desk manager, was very exceptional. He set up a very nice room and extremely helpful. We upgraded into a junior suite with the superior city view, spacious living area, and cozy bed. I really enjoyed my stay here and would highly recommend it to everyone.
Nice room in a good location near Union Square (added bonus: it's close to the Powell Street Station if you catch BART from the airport). Everything was comfortable, modern and clean.
