"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

"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.

"Nice hotel right near the wharf"
Went for a girls weekend-loved the wine reception and the blue mermaid restaurant.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice location, close to all the touristy sights. Hotel is clean & has a funky nautical vibe. Staff very attentive & friendly. Lobby has yummy cucumber water & is an energetic hangout, great area for people watching.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice hotel with nautical theme.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Surpassed my high expectations!"
Excellent in all ways!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, amazing staff, great location..."
We initially saw this hotel during our first San Francisco trip two years ago. We walked into the lobby and noticed it's beautiful decor and knew we had to stay there on our next trip. I was a bit disappointed with our room as it had a strange smell. The staff was great and the location is ideal, but the smell will probably keep me from staying there […] again!

Lavon at the front desk is so wonderful and went above and beyond! The doormen, Stephen, Donovan and John are so welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable! Fantastic experience!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location And Quiet"
The room was very, very clean which is an important issue for me. The beds were fine. No problem sleeping. One thing I do want to mention is Brooke at the concierge desk. She is the go-to girl for anything you want. She was fabulous! The restaurant, The Blue Mermaid, has fantastic food. The crab chowder is to die for!Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a nice hotel. But for $400 a night. You are paying for the location. It's what you wanted to do. Too much money for what it is. You can stay at Fairmont or Ritz or W or Mandarin or other posh hotels in downtown area if you want to pay $400 or so a night. I guess, some people like nautical features. I'm not impress. Although, staff are pleasant. […] Watch OUT! They will charge you for everything $45 daily parking, hotel tax daily, etc. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Oh, no! I see that you felt put off by certain charges, so I wanted to reassure you that the city taxes and feels are universal through out the city and the Argonaut does not benefit from them. The valet parking fees can also create some "sticker shock," though we do always benchmark and make sure that the company is offering rates in line with city averages. On the plus side, we hope that some of the free perks like the wine party, wifi, and Forgot It? We've Got It! items help to show some generosity on our end and create a little savings on your end. It's also a great idea to see the concierge the moment she arrives at 8am for the free bike rentals! That's a great ($32 value) savings if you are interested in exploring on wheels...
The room was great. The Door men, and Bell boys were awsome. I would recoment this hotel anytime.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I surprised my wife with a trip to San Francisco, her favorite city for our anniversary. We loved the hotel and spent three days in total relaxation and bliss. We will return!Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is very cute and it is located right at the end of a busiest tourist walkway of the city. However the widows don't open at all and the whole idea of being right on the water does not play up- you are confined to a very cutely appointed large room with AC ....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to most activities"
Nice place although the thermostat would not allow continuous airflow and seemed to shut off at midnight. Since no windows could be opened, made the room a little stuffy in the middle of the night. Other than that, very nice, clean, friendly staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"On Fisherman's Warf w/ great access"
Comfortable clean rooms with helpful staff. Easy access to Warf, trolley and busses.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful as usual!"
Great location...we stay here each time we visit. Good walking distance to most wharf attractions and transit.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overall very nice hotel"
This is the best hotel in the Fisherman's Wharf area, competent friendly staff, very clean, reasonable prices, convienent location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay on San Francisco pier"
Hotel was great, we had an awesome view of the bay. We could see the Golden Gate and Alcatraz from our windows. very convenient location on the pier.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location for families."
Great hotel and location! We rented bikes and road in the nearby parks and made our way across the Golden Gate Bridge. Concierge was outstanding and made great dinner recommendations. We enjoyed our stay by the wharf. Parking is around 50 per day so be warned!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cool hotel close to everything!"
Stayed w my husband and teenage boys. Had a wonderful. So many places are in walking distance. The staff is very helpful and the daily wine tasting was an added plus!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Right on the wharf."
My parents flew out to California and they definitely wanted to see the Wharf. We were right in the middle of the action! We could watch the sunset over the golden gate bridge, walk to pier 39, and we able to rent segways and bikes. It was awesome. The hotel is lovely, the staff is incredible, and the restaurant is amazing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Hooray! We'll have to share this review with the chef, too! Since you mentioned bike/segway rentals, I also wanted to make sure you know about our free bike rentals. We have some pretty lovely Public brand bikes that we loan out on a first-come, first-served basis. And after we are out of bikes and passes, we can also refer you to our tentant here, Blazing Saddles, with a guest discount!
"Great hotel, great location, and wonderful staff"
We stayed at this hotel at the beginning of our honeymoon! We had a suite on the 4th floor. The view was amazing and the room was much larger and nicer than we expected. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. When the bellman found out it was our honeymoon he had a bottle of wine at our choosing brought up to us. The wine hour downstairs was […] a great way to meet and talk to people also staying at the hotel. It gets busy though so get there early. The hotel was in a great location and within walking distance to a couple of great restaurants, a trolley stop, and a Walgreens. Cabs were very cheap and the hotel staff was willing to do whatever we asked of them. We would definitely recommend this hotel to our friends and family, and plan to stay here again if we come back to San Francisco. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
If you don't know San Francisco, you might find everything is so expensive there but in reality, SF is not a cheap city to vacation in. The nightly parking I thought is VERY EXPENSIVE, so best to avoid rental car and use taxi or bicycle. My other complaint was quality of sleeping and the matress was very soft for someone who is not used to it. The staff […] are very friendly and helpful I recommend this hotel, only if its location.

"Right in the heart of the tourist area."
Spent 7 nights at the Argonaut Hotel. Initially I was not too pleased with the hotel's location - it felt a bit too close to all the noise and congestion associated with the wharf - but after a couple days I started to really appreciate having so many bars and restaurants close by - plus the crowds thinned out considerably after the weekend. The room […] was clean – and the staff was very pleasant. Really enjoyed the daily happy hour - very good. Horrible view from the room - interior room - all we saw from our window was the other rooms without any view and the lobby roof. The wine tasting room was a joke - expensive and not worth the time or energy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I really enjoyed my stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stylish hotel in a great location."
We just spent five nights at the Argonaut. The hotel was decorated beautifully and the rooms were a great size for us and our two kids. We enjoyed having Queen beds! We especially enjoyed the complimentary wine/ beer reception each night in the hotel lobby. They even gave the kids sparkling apple cider so we could all enjoy it! The hotels location was […] perfect for us with many restaurants within walking distance. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome location, could stand some updating"
Checked in on Thur left on Monday morning. Great location. Walk west toward Golden Gate bridge, for 4 miles. Room was clean and well serviced. We got wine at happy hour which was nice. Staff was very friendly. Overall hotel needs some updating, e.g. carpet looks tired, etc. No way to get white noise, repeated efforts to keep the fan going were not successful […] so made it tough to sleep. Well stock fridge. Business office was a complete ripoff. $7.95 per 15 minutes and 79 cents to print 1 page, are we in the hotel business, or the ripoff your business customers business. I'd still recommend it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and friendly staff."
Would definitely stay there again. Its right on the wharf and a cable car stop is just around the corner.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic in every way!"
Perfect location. Quiet but so close to everything. Had the King Suite with view of Alcatraz - such an amazing room. Wine tasting a great touch! No problems ever. Housekeeping does a thorough job. Loved it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and experience!"
Very charming hotel, with great bell staff, comfy rooms, great location and service. Awesome wine and beer hour. Great concierge.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location for visitors to Fishermans Wharf"
Hotel is located just a short walk from Pier 39 and is perfect for visitors who want to spend a few days enjoying San Francisco. Rooms are spacious and clean - our one had a great view of the golden gate bridge across the water. Just outside the hotel you can jump on a cable car and ride up to china town which is a bustling hive of activity, if you […] do enjoy a drink at some great dive bars like LiPo or Budda bar - excellent way to meet some local characters.

"Great for families and close to lots of fun stuff"
The hotel was beautiful, close to the beach, pier 39 and many foods of your choice. It was perfect for myself, husband and 2 young daughters. The rooms were clean, comfortable and quite at night. I recommend the resturant in lobby, best chowder.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything was excellent! Wine and beer bar in the lobby at 5:00 was a nice touch. Will be back. The location was the best! Right on the wharf. Staff were great and the doorman was very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Keep looking there is better out there"
We stayed in a double queen Only three pillows per bed which were all feather so they are like having nothing and the beds were very hard no give at all. The worst experience was when we checked out. We had valet park our car $46 a night. We didn't need it for the last two days. It took over a half hour to get our car because they claimed the night […] before they had I to move it to a lot 4 blocks down. If we didn't use out car for the past two days why the night before check out did they move ours. Park the new ones coming in 4 blocks over. Needless to say we were 40 minutes behind schedule getting to a very busy airport. I will NOT recommend this hotel. There are way nicer more convient ones to stay when visiting San Francisco Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The beds were so hard that both my husband and I awoke with back pain. The headboard had not been cleaned and seemed to have some stains. The some of the staff members were nice and tried to be helpful. We tried to eat at the Blue Mermaid, but we found ourselves waiting for 5 minutes before we even got a rushed acknowledgement that someone would attend […] to us momentarily, and another 5 minutes passed before we decided to leave and walk across the street to another restaurant.

Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Hi, Tiff, Thanks for the feedback about the hotel and restaurant. I'm sorry that the hostess did not provide a more warm and timely welcome to you. We'll definitely take a look at that! The bed issue is an odd one because the mattresses are Sealy pillowtops. I occasionally hear they are too soft, so something must be broken for the bed to feel hard. If you have a moment to drop me a line with the room number, I'd be happy to remove the linen and mattress pad and give the bed a full inspection to get to the bottom of this! Thank you.
