Consistently Excellent

Claudia G on May 13, 2024

We stayed at the Argonaut last year on our honeymoon and we loved it so much we came back for our first anniversary. The Argonaut truly excels at everything. The location is perfect. Fisherman’s Wharf is right outside your door and the cable car is right next-door. It’s an easy walk to North Beach, the Buena Vista, and Ghirardelli Square. The Argonaut is the perfect launching point for so many great San Francisco experiences. Our room was comfortable, clean, and the housekeeping was impeccable. We have had both breakfast and dinner at the Blue Mermaid and were very pleased with our meals. Everyone we encountered at the Argonaut from the front desk staff, to the bellman, to the staff at the Blue Mermaid were professional and cordial. My husband and I are from the East Coast and we feel like the Argonaut is our home away from home when in San Francisco. We are looking forward to our next visit!

Perfect for single female, first time in SF

Sarah F on May 13, 2024

A thoroughly enjoyable 6 night stay at the Argonaut. I had a deluxe double queen room on the second floor due to availability (rsac24 conference). The room was spacious, even for full occupancy and overlooked Jefferson Street below and the Wharf behind. The room was kept immaculately clean throughout my stay and the bed was very comfortable. I enjoyed several breakfasts at the Blue Mermaid. What impressed me most overall was the attitude of every single member of staff th doorman, maids reception staff and blue mermaid wait staff were all so welcoming. They could not do enough for me and honestly, this hotel made me feel so comfortable and safe and looked after as a single female traveller from the UK. Highly recommend this hotel. Thank you so much!

Great Stay in the Bay

lmace2010 (Birmingham, Alabama) on May 08, 2024

Great location on the Wharf for exploring the San Francisco area. Shops/attractions of Fisherman's Wharf are right at your doorstep, the famous Buena Vista and the cable car stop are right around the corner. My room was roomy and comfortable, and since it overlooked the courtyard, was very convenient for darkening the room to sleep after coming in from the East Coast. The onsite restaurant and bar is very nice with great local cuisine and cocktails to try. I also loved the nautical décor throughout the hotel. If visiting San Francisco in the future, I would definitely choose the Argonaut again.

The best

Q5492EXmarkt (Southport, United Kingdom) on May 06, 2024

Excellent service, Good food at Blue Mermaid I have stayed here twice. I recommend this to anyone and have reviewed the negative comments and can honestly say most are petty and seem to have an agenda. Checking and checkout v smooth and the rooms were clean and tidy

Birthday Getaway

PV Y (World) on May 01, 2024

Me and my girlfriend spent the weekend here for my birthday and had a wonderful time. All the hotel staff were great, most notably Indy, who was very knowledgeable and lead us to finding some amazing local views and food. Indy was a true professional with his jolly attitude making our stay very pleasant. The beds were comfortable and the hotel was in a great convenient location that we felt safe walking around. The views were spectacular and made for a memorable trip. Their Blue Mermaid restaurant is definitely worth a stop as well!
