Personally, I have very high standards (close to OCD) regarding food, service and cleanliness and this time i have nothing bad to say. Just perfect. I feel this satisfied a couple times a year. Beautiful, clean, shiny. Staff extremely well mannered and polite. Restaurant and bar very hygienic and high quality, a bit pricy but worth the experience. Breakfast room service made us feel special. Amazing view. I love the effort they put in details going ranging from people to design. The atmosphere is warm, classy, relaxing i love it. We’ve been taken care of so well. Thank you. Thank you to all of the personnel who does an impeccable job everyday.

Hotel's Favourite
PROs: there's a lot of Japan in this property, it did remind me of modern hotels in Tokyo, starting from the spacy, multi-level lobby. Great service, nice and intimate restaurant, very nice night bar, with the Feinstein jazz program. Cleanliness is at high level. The whole property gives you a sense of tidiness, after a day in San Francisco. Kind personell. CONs: location is to be considered. Union Square can be considered a 'center town' but at night you'd rather get a transportation to the hotel entrance than walking in the streets. CONCLUSIONS: strongly recommended ,if you look for a high-rise type of modern hotel.

Room was superb - really comfortable. The service was excellent - especially at reception who I couldn't praise more for their friendly welcome. We only had breakfast in the restaurant but it was excellent. The only reason I can't give 5 stars is the poor quality of the cocktails we had before going out for dinner - they were sub-standard for a hotel of this quality and we left for the restaurant (went to Tadich Grill - amazing) as soon as we could. Any bar can do beer, wine etc - a top quality bar should pride itself on cocktails and sadly in this case we felt let down. Overall - The Nikko has a great location , excellent rooms and very good service - I'd stay again but I''' drink elsewhere.

My rating is closer to 3 and a half out of 5. ( ‘good’ rather than ‘very good). If they improved the tea and coffee making facilities in the room, I’d give it a solid 4 out of 5. The hotel is fine. It’s good. Staff are friendly. It’s nice and clean. Plenty of space in the room. Bed is a little soft, but comfortable. Great position, handy to everything. It’s just the little things that let down the hotel. The name “Nikko” says ‘luxury’ to me, but this hotel is lacking those little luxurious touches. The only option to make a cup of tea in the room is to use their machine that takes ‘tea capsules’ ( a bit like a Nespresso machine). This allows you only to make one cup of tea at a time. They only provide you a certain number of capsules and so I needed to call room service twice a day for extra tea. There was confusion when I asked for a kettle. I also needed to ask for milk for my tea, which also caused some confusion at first. Coffee cream powder was provided. The front desk said they would send me a kettle the next day, but it never arrived so I was back to making tea using their strange capsule method. Yes this review is mainly about tea I suppose. It is odd I know, but it is the little things that make a good hotel for me. :)

We were driving down from Seattle to San Francisco and staying at Hotel Nikko for two nights. Although the room rate was 40% more expensive than nearby hotels ($160 vs $220), we chose it because of the good review and the indoor pool. We also paid an extra $50 for early check in. Boy, I have never been to a hotel room that has worse view than our room at Hotel Nikko. We paid almost $800 (room, early check in, parking, taxes and fees) for two nights. And this is what we got. I reflected my disappointment with the front desk who said if we waited till 3pm to check in, they could offer us a room facing the same direction but one floor up. Will not return again. Just FYI, the hotel charges $65 for parking with in/out privilege. The garage next door, Mason O'Farrell Garage, only charges $41.
