An absolutely heavenly stay at Hotel Nikko. The property is modern and very clean but the absolute stand-out for us during our stay was the staff! They are just so wonderful! Always friendly, welcoming, and eager to help. As an example, after a day of wearing my heels my feet had blisters. From our room phone, I called down to the concierge to see if they could bring up some band-aids. Within 5 minutes, they were at our door with not only band-aids, but also antibiotic ointment and alcohol wipes as well. Just amazing. The property is extremely clean and well-kept. Would visit Hotel Nikko again and again!

After days of researching hotels for our anniversary trip (price, safety, value, amenities, location, proximity to tourism sights, to rent or not to rent a car, etc.), my wife and I chose to stay at Hotel Nikko. From the moment we stepped foot on the hotel property, I knew we made the right decision (walked directly across the street after returning our AVIS rental car after staying the first night in Pacifica). Such a friendly & professional staff, gorgeous room, warm swimming pool, hot Jacuzzi, and more! You won't be disappointed.
