"Great location but horrible rooms"
Location was an A+ walking distance to shops and great restaurants at wharf. Lobby atmosphere was cool as well. The problems are with the rooms. Lumpy mattresses make for horrible sleep and showers with no water pressure (the sink faucet had more pressure) it was not worth the money. Not to mention $50 for Valet parking which they don't tell you about. […] Not going back unfortunately and front desk didn't care Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best hotel on trip"
The room was great. Clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. Great location close everything, trolley station, Lombard St and pier 39.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome hotel on The Wharf"
Amazing place, location with lots of history, run into people from around the globe, complimentary wine glass every afternoon, The Blue Mermaid restaurant, which is awesome and has the best clam chowder ever. Complimentary bikes which you will want to move around. It is near to a hop on-hop off bus tour, near all of the piers and not too far off the […] Golden gate. Huge rooms brilliantly decorated, amazing service, very friendly, willing, just a lovely place. would go back anytime. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, perfect location."
Perfect location. Staff was amazing. Will defiantly visit again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"See the Golden Gate Bridge from your room"
Very nice hotel...we could see the Golden Gate Bridge from our room! Service was decent but they seemed a little overwhelmed with a large number of people always in the lobby area. Room was hip and trendy and quite large. Very clean. Right across the street from a Cable Car stop which was nice. Right at Fisherman's Wharf...but the Wharf is a little […] to "touristy" for us. Would absolutely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was our fourth visit to the Argonaut Hotel. It continues to surpass our expectations, and we hope to return soon!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bed is super uncomfortable"
The room was quiet and clean. The bed was squeaky and super uncomfortable. Surprising for a Kimpton hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"middle of the action at fisherman's wharf"
Maritime museum was very interesting, great restaurants, Ghiradellie hot fudge sunday are the best and have a nightcap at the cafe Buena Vista.Genuine Expedia guest review
I don't see how this hotel gets 4.6 rating Room depressing. Dark and dated . Bed hard as a rock and linens old. I didn't use any services. Would never stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Claustrophobes should avoid this hotel, or make a specific ask for a room that faces outward. Half of the rooms face a dark ugly inner roof (Kimpton-put some plants out there!) If you're on a low floor, you actually feel like you're sleeping below deck on a ship--there's almost no natural light. My A/C and hairdryer were broken and not promptly fixed, […] and front desk staff weren't friendly when I checked in. The bellmen and team out in front of the hotel are excellent, and I was able to check in early, but that's not quite enough to make up for the rest of the hotel. There are plenty of hotels in San Francisco, and given the competition, I expect more from the usually excellent Kimpton group. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a wonderful hotel with wonderful staff. Highly recommended!Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a wonderful experience at the Argonaut. We arrived late on a weeknight and unfortunately the king bed room we had requested was not available. Instead we received a room with 2 queen beds - not a deal breaker since we were so tired we would have slept anywhere at that point. They promised to move us to another room the next day. We were pleasantly […] surprised to find out that not only did they provide us with a king bed the next day but they upgraded us to a suite - and as an apology gave us a bottle of wine. That was a lovely gesture and much appreciated. What class! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Wharf"
We stayed at Argonaut and enjoyed it proximity to Fisherman's Wharf. They provided two bikes for my wife and I to ride over the Golden Gate Bridge and provided a happy hour with cordials, which was a nice touch after all the riding up and down the hills. Staff was very helpful and very accommodating. We will stay here again on our next trip to San […] Fran. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We had a great time!! Great view of the ocean and alcatraz!!! We'll stay here again!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was my third time staying at the Argonaut Hotel. It is a great location, walking is easy in the area and it is close to many different sightseeing activities. The Mermaid restaurant is excellent. The staff is pleasant and professional.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Fisherman's Wharf and Ghirardelli"
We stayed at this hotel as a belated anniversary celebration. The hotel staff were very helpful during the stay with valet parking (although the text-message way to pick-up our car after check-out did not work as they told us it would), check in, and attending to our small needs such as shaving cream we had forgotten to bring. We missed the wine reception […] and were given coupons to get a free glass of wine at their restaurant, which was a very nice gesture. The room and bathroom were clean, very pretty, and comfortable. We did not get a good view as we had requested in our reservations, although this may have been because we got a lower rate on Expedia. The hotel was a quiet place, although in our room as we were going to bed, we could hear the tv next door as well as a person coughing. This was the most disappointing part, as most reviews had said this would be a quiet place and it broke the mood of a romantic night in a nice hotel. The beds were comfortable. Overall, there was nothing that stood out to us as making it worth the stay, other than the cleanliness and comfort of the room along with it's close location to the Fisherman's Wharf.

"Excellent location in San Francisco"
Great experience in general, particularly the location. Service was great. We had a small incident with noisy guests near us and the hotel took immediate action and were nice enough to apologize even though not their fault. Staff was cordial, room quite clean and nice and spacious. We got our room very early which was a welcome surprise as usually you […] don't gets. Room ready after 3PM elsewhere. Highly recommended for a stay in San Francisco (for vacation purposes especially) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Gorgeous hotel, perfect location...only complaint (and not the fault of the hotel) was the parking charges (which appear to be a SF staple). Asked if they could be removed, they said they couldn't...no biggie. Would highly recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nothing special here.."
Room was small and AC unit very loud. We would not return here!Genuine Expedia guest review
Great...especially the earthquake!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was clean and comfortable. Wine/beer hour was fantastic - great way to meet with others that are visiting the area. Restaurant was average at best.Genuine Expedia guest review
Can't say enough about this HotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic Hotel - Would Stay Here Again!"
Great staff, very friendly. Free Happy Hour in the early evening. Wii in the lobby for kids, perfect location, quiet, comfortable. What more can I say. I travel a lot and am hard to impress but these guys did a wonder job for me and my family.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Summer 2014 San Francisco Vacation"
The Argonaut is awesome! The hotel is in a great location, the staff was attentive and friendly, the room was very comfortable and serviced in a timely fashion. Overall, nothing but great things to say about this hotel. Keep up the great work Argonaut!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay"
Wonderful location on Fishermans Wharf. Lots of close restaurants nearby. They made our 20th wedding anniversary very special. Thank you so much. We would definitely come back again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The Argonaut Hotel"
The Argonaut is a quiet and comfortable place to stay. Staff were friendly but the overall impression was that they were a bit distracted and disorganised - we arrived laden with suitcases after a 12 hour transatlantic flight and none of the doormen offered to help us. In fact, one of them opened the door for me and pointed out where reception was as […] I staggered through the door carrying two cases and my handbag! At breakfast too, they got my order wrong and tried to persuade me it was my misunderstanding - I am vegetarian and the food arrived with bacon when I expressly asked for it without. All of that aside, the hotel is close to to bay, ideal for families, the rooms are spacious and the beds are really comfortable! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice location!"
It is great location for the hotel to be near the famous Golden Gate Bridge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place close to everything"
Highly recommend it ! Andrew at valet is top notch ! Hit jacks bar a block away too !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable hotel, close to everything!"
Had a great stay at the Argonaut, I highly reccommend it. The staff were helpful and friendly, I received a free upgrade at the front desk (a little charm goes a long way!) my room was super spacious and comfortable, nice beds/bedding, plush robes and booties for your feet. The lobby is great, they do a free wine/beer/sangria tasting every night from […] 5-6ish...definitely take advantage, very generous pour and a great way to meet and chat with other guests. Also, the Powell/Hyde cable car is right on the corner so its a fun way to jump on one of the vintage trolleys and head up to Chinatown, Union Sq etc. Great stay, I would go back.

"Great Location....OK facilities."
The location cannot be beat right at the Wharf. The $50 to park is an irritant, and the amount it seems to be the norm for the area hotels. The room was OK, I do not see the attraction. Probably not stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice location"
We had two night there. This is one of the best hotels to ride the cable car because it is located just in front of starting point on the seaside. The room is clean and nice atmosphere and the service is excellent. It would be better if the hair-dryer would be stronger.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks, Aki! I'm happy you enjoyed the two nights here with us so much. For future reference, if you need a suped-up hair dryer, a "salon style" model is available for loan through our housekeeping team and their "Forgot It? We've Got It!" program for free amenities. Thanks!
From the moment we arrived the staff were extremely helpful and really helped us settle in. The hotel was immaculate and the rooms amazing, and everything you could want from Fisherman's Wharf is on your doorstep. Can't recommend this hotel enough, it was amazing!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice w/ view of other rooms."
The price doesn't reflect the room but it's location is one the best in SF.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Hi, Traveler, I know things can be a little pricier over some summer dates, though , for future trips, please know that we have three tiers of rooms: the standard, deluxe (exterior view) and view (facing the Golden Gate Bridge or Alcatraz). Those can be fun, especially if you plan to relax in your room in the afternoons!
"Couldn't be better located next to the Wharf."
Great rooms, friendly staff. Walking distance to all was very easy.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks, traveler! So glad that everything was convenient for you here :).
"The perfect hotel!"
Definitely recommend staying here whether you're on a business or leisure trip! I know where I'll be staying during my next trip to San Fran!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Only if you enjoy tourists."
I'm a fan of the Monaco in SF, but never again the Argonaut. Charged me another $100 for deposit--said I need to deal with Hotels.com to get the one I paid them back. Maids started laughing and being loud at 8 am Sunday morning. Room was located right on street with hundreds of tourists.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really nice hotel overall and dogs allowed"
I have not been in such a nice hotel that allows pets. Everyone was so friendly. The location was terrific in that we could walk everywhere. We enjoyed North Beach, the piers, embarcadero and surrounding neighborhood including Cannery Row and Ghirardelli Square.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location if you don't mind the tourist drove"
Rooms were surprisingly quiet for being right on the wharf.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to all must-see sights"
loved it!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location and staff is very friendlyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Evening staff were very unfriendly and said they did not have our reservation from Hotels.com and wanted us to pay again. They offered no compensation in any form for the inconvenience. The morning staff were much more accommodating and friendly. For the price, of almost $400, this hotel offered no extras.......Genuine Hotels.com guest review

As the title, Best location！Big and Cleanning room！Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everyone from the bell hop to the housekeeping to the concierge was absolutely wonderful!! The hotel room was beautiful and everything was perfectly stocked and clean!

"Great Location for Fishermans Wharf"
We enjoyed the stay and loved the wine reception from 5p-6p!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel in the Wharf area."
When I arrived, I discovered that my reservation through Expedia was not processed. The Service staff quickly looked at all options and found me the last room available. I contacted Expedia and worked it out. The supervisor that I spoke to on the phone was great. She offered a credit on the booked room and excellent credit to my account for future bookings. […] Very happy with experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
What a great place to stay!! everyone was extremely nice, you certainly don't need a car, but with valet it was so easy. I would stay there again, and recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
