Union Square landmark hotel commemorates its 30th anniversary with $60 million renovation

Hotel Nikko San Francisco, located steps from Union Square in the heart of the city, unveils a sweeping $60 million renovation commemorating its 30th anniversary this year.

Following a three-month renovation, spearheaded by Hirsch Bedner Associates, the contemporary and sophisticated interior design elevates the entire guest experience, complemented by the genuine and intuitive service Hotel Nikko San Francisco has long been known for.

The new design, which takes inspiration from the Nikko’s Japanese heritage and the fluid lines of a traditional kimono, encompasses 405 of 533 guestrooms and suites, structural upgrades to the lobby, public areas, third floor ballroom and meeting spaces, as well as large-scale improvements to the hotel’s overall infrastructure and technology.

“We are thrilled to bring travelers a completely reimagined and elevated hotel experience in the center of San Francisco,” said Anna Marie Presutti, vice president and general manager of Hotel Nikko San Francisco. “When Hotel Nikko San Francisco first opened, it represented the most advanced technological and architectural hotel design available of its time. We are happy to continue that legacy into our 30th year.”

Since its launch in 1987 under the ownership and leadership of the Takenaka Corporation, one of Japan’s largest architecture and engineering firms, Hotel Nikko San Francisco has embodied a modern Asian-inspired aesthetic taking a nod from its Japanese heritage, while constantly evolving to provide its guests accommodations that service the requirements of today’s traveler. In February 2016, the hotel’s revamped indoor pool with glass atrium and adjoining outdoor terrace reopened to include an outdoor grass dog run on its fifth floor, making the hotel one of the most pet-friendly properties in not only San Francisco, but also the United States.

As a familiar part of the skyline, Hotel Nikko San Francisco re-emerges as the city’s newest destination in time for the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love – the city of San Francisco’s biggest cultural movement – making the hotel the ideal accommodation choice for travelers that want to be in close proximity to all of the festivities taking place throughout the year.
