Overview

Well-appointed accommodations ideal for both business and leisure travelers
Property charges a daily resort fee
At first glance, this boutique-style hotel near Union Square may seem more geared toward business travelers – the hotel lobby, with its wall-to-wall marble covering and sparse furnishings, exudes a more serious aura. But the guest rooms have a softer side, with soothing blue and white color palettes and expansive windows offering views of downtown San Francisco. Though they do contain large work spaces, accommodations here also cater to those simply looking to kick back and relax, with minibars, minifridges, flat-screen TVs and pillow-top beds. Guests describe the digs as comfortable, but some lament the fact that there is a daily resort fee of $39.60 (which covers in-room Wi-Fi access and use of on-site amenities like a rooftop pool and a UPS business center). Despite this, many guests agree that the hotel's central location is truly unbeatable. And though guests are within walking distance of numerous neighborhood eateries, those looking to try California cuisine with a hint of Asian flavor can grab a bite in the property's Restaurant ANZU. Because this hotel is affiliated with the Preferred brand, members of the I Prefer Hotel Rewards program can trade in accrued points for rewards certificates, which can be used to cover the cost of stays here.

With its high-ceilinged, sparkling marble lobby, fully renovated in early 2017, Hotel Nikko proffers an image of contemporary, Zen-style luxury. One exception to the serene setting is the Kanpai bar, which looks like something out of Alice in Wonderland with checkerboard bar seating and very large plush chairs.
