Hotel Nikko San Francisco

Tranquility in the thick of it all
The ultra-modern Hotel Nikko San Francisco is located in downtown San Francisco just blocks from Union Square. The luxury hotel, which celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2022, includes more than 500 rooms — 22 of which are suites — an indoor heated pool, an impressive health club and men and women's steam rooms.

The hotel’s restaurant, Anzu, specializes in California cuisine with an Asian flair, and includes a raw and sushi bar, while the Kanpai Lounge offers an extensive selection of signature sake martinis.

For in-house entertainment, you can dine and be dazzled in Feinstein's, an elegant nightclub that hosts a wide variety of some of the most entertaining performers.

The hotel prides itself on building community and giving back, and is also a model of sustainable hospitality with special recycling, waste management and water conservation programs.
