Here is one way

In[6]:= ToString[NumberForm[0.05263 100, 3]] <> "%"

Out[6]= 5.26%

Note, this will not display all values to an accuracy of 0.01%
since it only retains 3 significant digits. Another method would be:

In[7]:= ToString[Round[0.05263 100, .01]] <> "%"

Out[7]= 5.26%

which will display all values to an accuracy of 0.01%.
