February 8, 1998
I read with disbelief Christopher Reynolds' article, "San Francisco Low Season Is On, but Prices Are Up" (Nov. 9). How can an average room rate of $132.70 be low season anywhere? But this should not stop people from enjoying San Francisco. Last June, I stayed for five nights at the upscale Hotel Nikko at Union Square during a conference. While the conference paid for my room, I discovered I was on my own my final night. The desk clerk informed me that I could stay at the hotel for the "special conference rate" of $150.

Michael Feinstein will be bringing his brand of class and oomph to the Pasadena Pops for three more years. The musician and orchestra have renewed his contract as the group's principal pops conductor through 2016. Feinstein kicked off his first season with the Pasadena Pops this summer, leading the orchestra in June at the Los Angeles County Arboretum in a performance that featured Cheyenne Jackson. The next performance will be Saturday with a program dedicated to classic MGM movies (and their music)

I read with disbelief the letter from David Tulanian ("Help From Hostel," Feb. 8) in which he said he "read with disbelief" Christopher Reynolds' comment that San Francisco's low-season room rates are an average of $132.50. Tulanian apparently was even more in disbelief following a conference he attended at the Hotel Nikko, when he was offered a post-conference room rate of $150. What rate could he possibly have expected at one of the city's premier hotels? Is Tulanian so untraveled that he expected the luxury of the Nikko at the rate of $17 per night, on which he finally settled at a hostel, for a small room that he shared with one person?

It's been a year since Manny Ramirez sat down in the Hotel Nikko here to explain himself, why he was nothing like the quitter described in Boston, the ideal free agent for teams looking to getting better. He was using Page 2, and Page 2 was more than happy to be used. It was 10 a.m., the big goof on time, serious, thoughtful and with a believable answer to every question, some might argue, whatever it took to earn another big contract. It worked, the Dodgers the happy benefactors a year ago, almost everyone in L.A. swept away by the charisma and his remarkable hitting skills.

Beverly Hills planning officials have asked the city of Los Angeles to withhold a permanent certificate of occupancy for a new hotel on La Cienega Boulevard because they think that the hotel plans to violate its occupancy limits by renting out ground-floor guest rooms for meetings. The 304-room Hotel Nikko is south of the Beverly Center in Los Angeles, just outside the Beverly Hills city limits.

Hotel Nikko at Beverly Hills is up for sale by its Japanese owners and has attracted more than a dozen bidders with offers as high as $80 million, according to lodging industry consultants and brokers. A new owner would probably affiliate the property with a different hotel brand instead of remaining with Nikko, which has in the past catered primarily to Japanese travelers, according to Alan Reay, president of Atlas Hospitality Group.
