Rated AAA Four Diamond since 1997, the boutique Hotel Nikko is a serene sanctuary just two blocks from Union Square. Tranquil interiors, gracious Japanese hospitality and a zen-like ambiance permeate the entire property.

A 10,000-square-foot health club and atrium-enclosed heated pool and outdoor sundeck spread across the fifth floor. There is a $20 per room, per day fee to use the club. This also includes access to the dry sauna and steam facilities located in both the men's and women's locker rooms.

California Asian-fusion cuisine is dished up at Anzu, the hotel's elegant second-floor restaurant that is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There's also a small sushi bar within the restaurant and a Sunday brunch with items like eggs Benedict on sushi rice cakes and a wasabi-infused bloody mary.

Rooms are drenched in calming tones and feature amenities like a luxe Subarashee Yume pillow-top mattress and rainfall shower head.
