Hotel Nikko San Francisco is rolling out a number of new offerings for meeting and event planners ahead of the 50th anniversary of the city’s Summer of Love

Located near Union Square in the heart of the city, the hotel just took the wraps off a $60 million renovation project commemorating its 30th anniversary. Helmed by Hirsch Bedner Associates, the new interior design takes inspiration from the Nikko’s Japanese heritage and encompasses 405 of the property’s 533 guestrooms and suites, as well as 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. 

The revamped 6,652 square foot ballroom on the hotel’s third floor now has focal points including tall metal-cut wall screens with modern Japanese design features that aim to emphasize the height of the space, as well as crystal glass drop light chandeliers anchored from the ceiling. The pre-function space has natural light, contemporary art-inspired fixtures and furnishings such as copper finished tables, grey marble worktops and armchairs. 

The hotel also has 20 flexible meeting rooms on the 25th floor overlooking the city, with views of the San Francisco Bay. The renovation added new A/V equipment for presentations. 

In the renovated guestrooms, guests will now find a new color palette of earthy neutral tones, deep seated sofas, plush carpets and quality fabrics, plus marble bathrooms with parquet flooring, deeps oaking bathtubs and separate oversized showers. 

For dining, the hotel’s signature restaurant, ANZU, is now open and serving Clifornia-inspired Japanese cuisine. Signature dishes include thinly sliced Wagyu beef cooked tableside on a sizzling Japanese river stone and Misoyaki black cod served with purple yam dumplings, edamame, baby shitake mushrooms and ginger dashi broth.

Additional hotel amenities include a 10,000 square feet health club and fitness center with indoor pools, steam rooms and dry saunas, as well as a 140-seat live music venue and bar.
