If your travels take you to San Francisco, consider staying at the contemporary Hotel Nikko. While the Golden Gate City never truly sleeps, you'll get to do just that — and more! — at this Asian-inspired property. 

What You Need to Know 

The Look of Hotel Nikko

It's All in the Details

Hotel Nikko is a sleek property that marries modern design with a distinct East Asian feel. From the moment guests step into the sun-drenched lobby — which is equipped with plenty of comfy, blue- and white-hued seating — they'll feel like they've been whisked away to a private, quiet oasis. Meanwhile, the Japanese-inspired rooms boast incredible city views, plush bedding, bold blue accents, and striking marble bathrooms. 

The Vibe at Hotel Nikko

The vibe at Hotel Nikko is laid back and relaxed. After touring the city, head back to the hotel to take a dip in the glass-enclosed pool, which has adults-only hours from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. As night falls, consider dining at Restaurant ANZU, which features a delectable Asian-inspired menu. Then, head over to the swanky KANPAI Lounge or Feinstein's at the Nikko, where live music and comedy shows are held (almost) nightly. 

Who Will Love Hotel Nikko

Both leisure and business travelers will love Hotel Nikko for its central location. Also, folks traveling with furry friends will appreciate the pet-friendly amenities, including an outdoor pet terrace and dog run, play dates with resident pets Beau and Buster, and special room service options. 

Who Might Not Love Hotel Nikko

Those traveling with groups of friends or family may opt to stay elsewhere since most rooms sleep just two guests. Additionally, people with an aversion to pets should choose alternate accommodations: Hotel Nikko is one of San Fran's original pet-friendly properties. 

Best Amenity at Hotel Nikko

The best amenity at Hotel Nikko is the 15-meter (about 49 feet) glass-enclosed pool and hot tub. Feinstein's at the Nikko — a swanky space where guests can dance, laugh, and sing the night away — is a close second.
