Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Nikko San Francisco

Parking is more expensive than the daily rental charge for an SUV...

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at the Nikko Sept. 8th-12th and was impressed by the decor of the hotel. Very nice and very safe. Checked for room keys after 11:00 pm. The room itself was very small BUT the bathroom was HUGE!!! Separate bathtub and shower stall. Hardly any amenities though i.e. free high speed wireless internet, only one restaurant choice(pricey), parking was OUTRAGEOUS!! It was more expensive to park than to rent the SUV. I know parking is very expensive in the city but...$45 per day is a rip-off!!! Other than that, I thought the hotel was very nice and clean.

Nikko is Great

from A TripAdvisor Member
This was a grand hotel in a very nice area of San Fran. The lobby was very nice and the decor was awesome! If you book a room I suggest calling ahead and requesting a room on a high floor. We did and had a great view, and our room was quite large. We also let the staff know it was our anniversary, and we returned to find a free bottle of bubbly that evening in our room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I recommend eating a dinner at the Hilton next door, the restaurant is on the 46th floor and you get a lovely view.

Very Happy w/ Hotel Nikko!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I booked a room through Hotwire and ended up with Hotel Nikko @ $125.64/night (including all taxes). I was a little concerned because I had never heard of this hotel. My mom & I stayed there August 24-26, 2004 and were pleasantly surprised. Although we had the same view as what I saw on tripadvisor (the top of the building beside Hotel Nikko!), the room was very clean and we felt very safe. The furnishings throughout the hotel and our room were lovely. We did not eat in the hotel restaraunt (too pricey and not our taste), so we asked the hotel staff to recommend nearby restaraunts and they were friendly and helpful. We didn't use the pool (too busy!) but checked it out and it looked very nice. As we traveled around the city we saw some of the hotels we had found on the internet while researching our trip. Most of the hotels we had considered looked shady from the outside, but Hotel Nikko was beautiful inside and out. Overall, we were very pleased with our accommadations with Hotel Nikko.

I very happy with my recent stay here. The room service was very fast, the rooms were immaculate, and the housekeepiing was flawless. I had a single room, which was not large at all, but it was adequate for my purposes.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Sunday Jazz Brunch buffet at the hotel's restaurant. The huge selection of food is more than one can possibly eat in one sitting (and I'm a big eater). I'm usually not a fan of buffet brunches, but this one was top-shelf.

The hotel is located in the Union Square area, with every major upscale department store you can think of within a few blocks walk. If you need to get to other parts of the city, you can catch BART (subway) a few blocks away. That is, of course, unless you'd prefer to take the legendary trolley, which stops right down the street.

Two things to be aware of:
1) Valet parking at the hotel is $47/day, with unlimited in/out privileges (not including the valet tips). If you are arriving by car, this could add up pretty quickly.

2) The optional "high-speed" Internet service is available for $14.95/day. However, this service performed poorly and inconsistently. The only alternative is dial-up, for which you pay $1.00 for the first 10 minutes, then $1.00 each additional minute.

Other than that, I was very pleased with this hotel. I would stay here again.

No Victorian furniture!

from A TripAdvisor Member
5 nights @ Nikko SF 6/26-7/1/04. The house was completely full, but service was --for all things-- completely above par. This hotel has the fastest staff I have ever seen-- just ask, and it's there, everything from room service to valet to housekeeping requests. This staff is efficient, unobtrusive, and seems to be really concerned for guest comfort. They are professional without being cold/ aloof/ haughty (unlike at some hotels I could name).
I received a great rate b/c I am a state gov't employee-- most hotels will give a special rate, but this was definitely the best deal in the best location.
We had a late check-in, arriving the night before the Pride parade, and for some reason my request for a non-smoking room was not noticed/ held. I was skeptical of the "ionizer" they offered, but gave it a try, as the house was packed; there were no other rooms. (We were upgraded to a Nikko Floor room; a regular room became available by 8:00 the next morning, but we opted to stay upstairs-- it was fine. I am a vehement non/ ex-smoker-- I notice ANY smoke smell, & it was clean-smelling when we came back to our room after a day in the city. Also, I couldn't smell any smoke in the hallway, from other rooms on the same floor. That kind of stuff is very important to me.)
I mention that it was Pride weekend b/c EVERY hotel was near-full, & going mad trying to keep up with all the guests/ tourists, but NikkoSF was this calm island in the middle of the city. It's not a velvet -&-brocade, Victorian-furniture kind of place, so if that's what you want, look elsewhere. I hate frou-frou, but like conveniences and style (ok, can't afford 5 nights at the W)-- the Nikko was great. No upturned noses at our kids, either, even tho' we didn't see any other kids in the place til almost the last day.
We used the minibar for its fridge (not the snax)-- they didn't even check the minibar, just took my word for it that we only rearranged things. Did get a regular rollaway fridge the 2nd day-- there are 2 Walgreen's within walking distance, & a 2-liter soda is still half the price of the minibar can of coke.
The pool was closed for maintenance (a plumbing leak the day before we arrived), but the jacuzzi, sauna, & exercise room were great. I could make a big deal out of this, but I know stuff happens-- they apparently had already ordered the new pool liner, so they were quick to take care of it.
Good art in the building (it matters, believe me). Not overdone (see: Donatello, or Triton & otehr kitsch hotels). Double beds were small (we're used to a Cal King), but there seems to be not much else available unless you want to get a separate room for the kids. They were comfortable, w/ quality linens. (Ask for yukata robes-- you'll feel silly walking around in them, but who cares? You can get plush terry anywhere!)
You cannot beat the location-- within walking distance of everything except the ferry to Alcatraz (no other reason to go to the wharf -except- the ride to Alcatraz). Theaters & galleries, as well as SFMoma close by-- go to the day-of-show booth (Union Square) to see what's offered.
I will definitely stay here again, for many reasons, and am recommending the hotel to anyone I know who is staying in SF.

Not enough water in the pool

from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel was lovely, but if you're going there to lap swim, don't bet on it. The water level in the pool was too low. Probably down 1 foot from where it should be. My fingers scraped the bottom at one end. I asked for them to fill it up, but only stayed one night so don't know if they responded.

Fine Hotel with Flair

from going_seeing_doing
Clean, well-kept. Convenient to the square and cable stops. Nicely decorated. Good service.

Feel like Home

from sandiegotraveller
I have booked two rooms on the Nikko Floor (24th floor) with access to the Club level on the 23rd. fl. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The atmosphere is quiet and peaceful. Though the beds are a bit small, the decor is modern. The club level is very clean and well kept. My child of 11 yrs. old has great fun in using the free internet access before bedtime. The staff is courteous and sincere, especially the ones in Anzu Rest. and the valet parking. The free breakfast buffet (for Nikko Fl. guests) is excellent. However, the food at dinner time is really not worth the money. I have stayed in many other 5 stars hotels before. Hotel Nikko somehow provide a feeling like home.

floor - worth the extra

from DeanoFromLeeds
Expedia bargain - a 22nd storey 'Room Floor' room + breakfast for approx. ?65 on a weekend night. Superb value, excellent room. Good, friendly clerks on front desk. Breakfast was OK but cooked items looked and tasted a little unexciting. Nikko Lounge great spot to relax, with free internet access, piles of fresh apples and ice-cold bottled water. Would recommend if you can get an internet deal.

Great Hotel, great service

from A TripAdvisor Member
My mom and I stayed at the Nikko for 6 nights last August (2003), where I attended a conference. I thought the service was great and the staff very friendly. The room had a pretty nice view, considering the discount internet rate from the room. The concierge was also very helpful in arranging a tour to the Muir Woods and Sausolito for us (can't miss it if you're in SF!) Overall, great experience.

Top Local Tips for San Francisco

USE THE BART Rather than spending $30+ on a shuttle from the airports, pay the $3 for the AirBART shuttle and the $3.35 for the BART into the city. A great value!

Fisherman's Wharf See the sea lions play, and then get out of there. Head for Pier 33 and spend your money seeing Alcatraz instead.

The SF Playhouse The SF Playhouse ( is a tiny theatre on Sutter St. just off of Union Sq. offering very high grade professional live theatre. During our stay we greatly enjoyed the premiere of "man from la Manchahttp://
