"Great hotel and great location"
Hotel staff was very nice and extra helpful. Stayed for three nights and had no complaints.Genuine Expedia guest review
AMAZING! We traveled with our pet and it was VERY accommodating. Perfect location by Fisherman's Wharf, Aquatic Park, Fort Mason, and ALL. They were all exceptional. ONE COMPLAINT: Blue Mermaid Chowder advertises that they are dog friendly but they are ABSOLUTELY NOT. Overall.... Room clean, hotel even cleaner. Very well maintained. Service great from […] everyone except for one lady at the front desk. Hotel amenities great; robes, pet beds, pet crates (which I didn't get), yummy cucumber mint water, & WINE! Location perfect. Rate is worth it for location and cute hotel. Loved the bell boys and the BEST service from hotel is from the valet and baggage claim. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"very nice hotel near the beach"
What a wonderful experience, staff was excellent - what a wonderful way to celebrate a belated father's day and birthday....we will never forget the time spentGenuine Expedia guest review
"Super convenient locale and charming"
Room,staff and locale awesome. Rooms are very noisy...can hear adjacent rooms and hallway traffic super loud. Super loud.Genuine Expedia guest review
Stayed here in June of this year. Loved the location. Right on Jefferson St. with direct access to Hyde St. Pier and cable cars. Minutes from Fisherman's Warf by foot. The hotel was very clean, check in was very easy and our room was very clean. I recommend a room with views of the bay for anyone staying here.Genuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyed our stay. Felt secure and loved the location. Excellent helpful staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location for being on the wharf"
Air conditioning was set to auto to which when it reaches the coolest temperature it will shut off therefore the room being too cold or too hot.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent, helpful staff! Nice hotel, great location, and well-maintained. But it's the wonderful staff, from the curbside help with car & baggage, to the front desk, to the maid service - all friendly, helpful, and glad to be of service - who really made this a special visit.Genuine Expedia guest review
Staffs were very friendly and good location to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"On The Bay"
Beautiful hotel in walking distance to the Piers. Very active area, but fun. Kids would love it! Family oriented, but excellent for romance too!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel in perfect location"
Perfect hotel for those wanting to be close to all tourist attractions. Close to beach, trolleys, wharf, Ghidelli, etc. Friendly and accomodating staff. Lovely nautical decor. Would stay again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel close to many of San Francisco attrac"
Would recommend this hotel to anyone that wants to be right in the middle of many of the great things San Francisco has to offer. Room was clean. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Would stay here again if I am lucky enough to come back to San Francisco.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Top Location and very good amenities"
We arrived late for the wine tasting but the location of the hotel is excellent. The room was very clean and in excellent condition. I will definitely return.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Thank you, Rodrigo! I hope you got to enjoy the wine party on the second day? We host it from 5-6pm nightly and now is a great time at the hotel since we are serving up the summer sangria. The housekeeping and engineering teams will be delighted to hear that you were so happy with the room. Thank you for writing, and we'll look forward to your return visit :)
"Excellent location in Fisherman's wharf."
We stayed as a home base to see local sites and tour colleges. It was pricey for the hotel itself, but an excellent location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Charming hotel with great location"
Hotel was immaculate with most helpful staff. The concierge service was the best ever and the location right across the street from the wharf made the trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks, Liz! We'll share this with the team, especially the concierge. I am glad that their help and of course the location here made everything so fun and easy for you. Cheers!
"Best hotel I've ever stayed in"
Clean, unique decor without being cheesy. Fantastic customer service. The room was a little small for me; but the decor and layout made up for that. Not sure if larger rooms are available, but they probably would have been out of my price range since the room we booked was at the top of our budget. The only other issue was the last night I could hear […] the TV from the next room through the wall but ear plugs or a sound machine would easy have canceled that out. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel "Fantastic customer service" is the kind of thing that makes our day over here. Thanks for writing! I'm sure the designers would also be happy to hear that you enjoyed the fact that they brought some thematic style elements into the building without getting over the top. That was their key goal during the renovation. The brick walls and wooden beams throughout the property are so neat that I'm glad they showcased them so well.
"Great stay. Could be better"
Overall it's good... The room could be better. A view would have been nice rather than staring at the other hotel rooms across. The staff are awesome and helpful. Very pet friendly. Walking distance everywhere.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Hi, Traveler! I hope that we will have the chance to see you again in the future -- maybe in one of our Deluxe or View category rooms? We do take pride in being pet friendly (no fees!) , and also havng a pet-free floor for guests who request that alternative as well. I will let the team know that you and your four-legged buddy felt well taken care of here. Thank you !
Great Jacuzzi ... Great view. Bit of a smoky smell in a non-smoking room otherwise very clean. Nice décor ... would stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks, traveler. Our thanks to you and your good nose! Please feel free to let us know if there is ever a fragrance issue in your room. We are definitely non-smoking and need to ensure that that policy is enforced. Any neighbors who are smoking (a rare event, luckilly), will need to receive a warning call since we take this very seriously, both for guest service and because we occupy an historic building :). We are lucky to have those modern, ultra-deep tubs in the suites, though, right? The view from the soaking r&r of the tub is priceless!
"Very good hotel in a very good location"
Great hotel - comfort, service, food (Blue Mermaid) and location. It's all here. Plus there is some history with this hotel - the structure/brick work stems from the early 1900s as a warehouse and cannery for vegetables and fruit. Convenient to Ghiradelli Square or Fisherman's Wharf, the hotel is a block away from the final cable car stop on the Mason-Hyde […] Line. Just make your experience that much better by requesting a higher floor with a view. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Outstanding. Staff was very accomodating. Location is fantastic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms were done up in a cheesy nautical theme that needed updating. The most disappointing was the whole place, including the streets outside, were like a ghost town at night. Day tourist lure, but nothing happening in the PM.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location in the heart of Napa"
The overnight road construction with jackhammers disrupted sleep unfortunately.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfy and convenient"
The hotel was clean, quaint and very accommodating, but the people made our stay special. From Federico at the front desk to the friendly staff throughout the hotel, we felt welcome! Close to all the sites, yet quiet and comfy within: we will be back!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Thank you, Lisa! It was so fun to share this review with Federico and tell him he is "famous on Hotels.com" :). I'm glad that he and the team made the stay special. We appreciate you taking the time to share your story!!
I'm typically too preoccupied to write reviews, but I had to make an exception with this one. Staff friendliness, knowledge, helpfulness and overall commitment added to the inherent beauty of the Argonaught Hotel. Gorgeous rooms with character abound from the old wood beams and natural brick walls. And right on the waterfront. We never got to enjoy […] the chowder from the Blue Mermaid restaurant attached to the restaurant but next time I think we will. Complimentary bikes were a nice unexpected touch but never got to use those either, we just walked everywhere. Great Job staff from the boys outside, to the cleaning staff, front desk and concierge. One last thing, the complimentary drinks from 5 - 6 were always served with a smile and had a few full pours of wine. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location near Hyde Street Pier"
We stayed for a week to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Loved the location; it was close to the beach, Fishermans Wharf and transportation. Staff was friendly and helpful. The food offered at the Blue Mermaid was excellent, especially the crab chowder and the bacon! Our only criticism would be that the beds could have been more comfortable and less […] sqeaky. The hotel is dog friendly and though we didn't have a dog with us, it was fun to see them around the hotel. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Argonaut again upon our next visit to SF. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks, Leigh! I know just what you mean...........BACON!! The Chef's thick-cut bacon is out of this world. I think that's why I so adore the Ahi Tuna BLT, which is practically a meal for two! Anyhow, back to the subject at hand: happy anniversary to you both, and thank you for choosing us! I'm glad we will see you again, and perhaps with your pet buddy on one of our pet floors next time :).
"Great hotel near Fisherman's Wharf and Cable Car"
Great location and service. Room was nice except bed was a bit firm. Staff was outstanding; best service I have ever received. The restaurant (Mermaid Chowder House) was excellent -- try the crab and corn chowder!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the Wharf"
Great hotel, right at the end of the Piers, good access to the Wharf,& walking to Ghiradellis, cable cars,Sight seeing to Alcatraz & fun things to do. Staff very friendly & helpful from check in to check out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location- close to everything"
our first time to SF. we used the BART and trolley to get there, easy and cheaper than cab. close to everything. Rent bikes- was a wonderful way to see most of the sights of the city-and GREAT views of everything. Weather was wonderful too, but cold at night (take at least a jacket or coat and maybe a warm hat). Visited Sonoma- great time, however traffic […] coming back on the weekend was terrible. Eat closer to fisherman's grotto for cheaper seafood (versus the wharf restaurants). Go up Columbus street to north beach for great italian food. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We reserved the hotel a couple hours before showing up, got to the hotel late and had no problems checking in. They have valet parking and a nice friendly staff. We will be coming back when we have more time to enjoy all the small things this hotel has to offer. We felt like we were on a ship in our room, very nautical.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel with unique rooms"
Really great hotel in a good spot; rooms are uniquely setup and styled. Pillows were a little soft but otherwise had a great experience at the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The ceilings do transmit those above you walking around. Would have preferred to stay on top floor.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel in a great location"
Great hotel and staff in a wonderful location on the Wharf.Genuine Expedia guest review
Spent 4 nights, 5 days sightseeing San Francisco wharf area, Chinatown, Union Square area. Rented car and drove to Muir Woods and Pointe Reyes.Genuine Expedia guest review
Wonderful service in a great location in San Francisco.Genuine Expedia guest review
Terrific hotel find right by the water. Two thumbs up!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Happily Recommend & Good Location"
My wife and I enjoyed our overnight stay. Bed was very comfortable. Guess services was very helpful and attentive to our requests. Room was clean and relaxing. Being right on the wharf was that much better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Hello, Grants! I'm glad the bed was what you needed for a restful vacation, and we'll thank the service and housekeeping teams for you sa well! Hope to see you again.
"Very nice hotel"
Had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Room was perfect with a gorgeous view of Alcatraz.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent choice for vacation visit"
Great place to stay for a vacation in San Francisco! Plenty of options at Fisherman's wharf for dining, biking, sightseeing and a short cable car or trolley ride to downtown or other destinations. Hotel is clean and comfortable, staff is accommodating and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Thank you, Family from Ohio! I like to make sure to mention the free bike rentals (first come, first serve, but great for early risers) since that little perk can really save you money and give you that extra incentive to brave that little slope up to the spectacular bridge!
Probably the best location for tourists in SF. The hotel is up to all what is promised.Genuine Expedia guest review
Close to everything I wanted to see and visit. It's a great walk to North Beach and a very steep but fun walk up Hyde St.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel on the wharf but quiet rooms"
Enjoyable two day stay. Very clean spacious attractive room. Helpful staff. Highly recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location (Fisherman's Wharf itself is not that attractive, but it's a stone's throw from great views of the bay and an easy walk up to North Beach or else a cable car ride up to Nob Hill, etc. Hotel is very well managed and unusually comfortable and quiet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks, traveller! It is kind of you to mention the management team, though or course all credit goes to our friendly crew. Thank you for your review!
It is wonderful to be right on the Wharf. You are right across the street from the Bay and in the heart of Fisherman's wharf. If you don't need/want a pool or care about the view from your room you will love this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quick Weekend in San Fran"
Enjoyed the quick weekend stay at the Argonaut. Too bad we didn't have more time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A few nights at the Argonaught"
The hotel is in an excellent position, however I have to ask is it worth the money??? I was shocked to see that you had to pay for bottled water. Other hotels provide 2 bottles a day.. Also no tea only coffee and that was sparse.. One normal and one decaf. As there were two of us we had to toss a coin! The decor was lovely and they had people running […] around making sure everything was done However it is the little things that were missing. Like the above and the bath towels had seen better days. The toiletries were bulk on the wall and basic. for this price I expected a little better.. Overall the hotel is nice but I dont consider it worth the price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel and close to everything."
It was wonderful. The staff was excellent and very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Central to everything we wanted to do."
Nice room. Cleaned every day. Quiet hallways. Would have liked it if the room faced the wharf. Staff very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Service, Excellent Location,Dog Friendly"
I have stayed at this hotel twice now. Both times the experience has been terrific. It is located at the west end of the Fisherman's Wharf venues, close to the Galleries and Port of SF Museum. Lots of variety in the restaurants. Close to the Cable Cars and with easy access to other transportation. Wine social at 5 PM every day. The friendly atmosphere […] that is created by the staff of the hotel effects the guest with an openness that feels like "family." Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
First time visit to San Francisco & after touring all over the area, this hotel was the best - so much history; the old cannery building. The location is the best with very friendly staff, clean, great views, walking distance to the piers & restaurants all around. No need to rent a car. The wine tasting was a very pleasant surprise, nice touch!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel in Fisherman's wharf"
Hotel was across the Pier in Fisherman's Wharf. Great place to stay if you are in San Francisco for a short stay. It's very busy on weekends. Many great restaurants walking distance to hotel. Nautical theme of hotel was very cute. Our room was clean and they had very nice hair and soap products in the rooms for guests. Loved the free wine tasting in […] the lobby at 5:30 pm.
