    Perfect location for family trip to SF

    This was our first visit to San Francisco and we could not have chosen a more ideal location to explore the city. The Argonaut is in Fisherman’s Wharf within walking distance of all the sites and the city, plus Pier 33 for Alcatraz tours. The hotel has a modern, nautical vibe. Our room was fairly spacious with 2 comfy queen beds. We were a family of 4 and didn’t feel cramped. The bathroom was small, but well appointed with nice toiletries to use. We had complementary fresh brewed coffee in the room- a nice touch. Our room had no view as it looked out over the inner courtyard, but it was very quiet. All the staff were friendly and helpful, especially Ky on the front desk, and Matthew, the Concierge. We ate a couple of times in the Blue Mermaid Restaurant which served delicious clam chowder. The fish and chip portion size was a bit disappointing for the price, but overall good food and friendly staff in the bar and restaurant. The hotel offers 2 hour free bike hire, but you have to be quick as it’s first come, first served. We missed out on the free 2 hours, but Matthew the Concierge got us a discount at a local bike hire place anyway. Overall we loved our stay in San Francisco and would highly recommend the Argonaut. It’s a great hotel in a location which cannot be beaten!

    Truly exceptional, just be thoughtful about room choice

    Pros: - Hotel decor is wonderfully upscale and tasteful, nautical theme just fits perfectly on the Wharf - Location is perfect for visiting San Francisco. In the part of Fisherman's Wharf which is much less crowded and commercial, close to cable car turnaround, close to Marina, close to Ghiradellii square. - Staff exceptionally sensitive and helpful - Blue Mermaid restaurant is great, outside seating with firepits, etc. - Good but no great fitness center - Very comfortable beds - Very tastefully decorated rooms - Bike shop right next door. Cons - King suite layout is poor for families. Kids have to go through bedroom for bathroom, adults have to go through living area to leave room. No locks on either the bathroom or bedroom doors. Book two connecting rooms if you can, although this options is clearly pricier. When we pointed this out to the hotel mgmt, they agreed and made accomodations for us. They also stated the hotel is due for renovation next year and should address this (why the hotel would be being renovated any time soon is a mystery, it looks brand new right now. Bottom line: can't miss choice for SF vacationers. Just make sure the room works for you.

    Really liked this hotel. Room was well done, clean and had great touches and decor. It was not cookie cutter and didn’t feel like every other note. Staff is great. Overall location is good but does get busy on weekends with tourists out along Jeffereson St and the end of the cable car line. It was a bright spot in our trip to SF.

    Great location and thank you Peter!

    Nice and cool place to spend time in San Francisco. Near Fishermans Wharf. The staff is very helpful in any situation, even if they towed my car (be careful and take care for colored marks on the street even if they are washed and look like from 100 years ago). The high towing costs for my car Peter compensated with a good rebate in the restaurant. We highly appreciated this complementary gesture. Thank you Peter!

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Argonaut. Our room was quite large and very clean. We were especially impressed with how comfortable the beds were. We loved the view of the GG Bridge and the location. Be aware - there is a $29 a day amenities fee (this was disclosed when we booked the hotel but we overheard people who seemed surprised by it). We only used one of the amenities - the games in the lobby - but you could also get free bike rentals, a $10 daily credit at the restaurant, etc. I wish they had the option to trade the $10 restaurant credits for the stuffed sea lion they had in the room for sale. But we would stay here again in a heartbeat.
