"Nice but poor value"
Great location - I have stayed in the area many times. Pleasant staff upon check in. We checked in early and were advised room was not ready. Fine - we checked luggage and went for walk. At 3:00 pm we checked in again- A room was ready, not our room. Waited longer. Once we checked in room was nice. Waited for luggage ..finally went down to see where […] it was. ???? I had to walk into storage room because they could not find it. On two later occasions we received attitude from staff like we were interrupting them! To top it off - the morning I left I was yelled at by maintenance guy when I used restroom with a " caution" sign outside . Nice facility- concierge was great and very helpful!!! restaurant very good. I will look for other facility close by Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel Staff Rude And Horrible... Booked Wrong Room"
Worst Staff At Reception Desk .... Staff Needs Manners And Communication trainingGenuine Expedia guest review
"Weekend in SF"
I did not think the room measured up to the price I paid for it. The bed needed to be replaced. The bathroom needs more shelves to put your personal items on. At $500+ per night I expected a little more luxury than this room provided. The staff were very friendly. Don't think I'll pay that price again for the room I got.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to everything"
My husband and I stayed here for our 16th wedding anniversary. We loved the accommodations but especially the location. Wine hour is nice and great restaurants all around. The concierge was very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
I always stay here when I'm in San Fran!!! Complimentary adult and children refreshments at 5:00. Very family friendly!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location! Great Hotel! Great Staff!"
The Argonaut Hotel was absolutely awesome. The location is perfect to walk to all of the tourist spots on Fisherman's Wharf, next to cable car boarding and Ghiradelli Square is close. The staff is very friendly, eager to serve and give great ideas on places to eat. The hotel is clean, with spacious and very comfortable rooms. We have already suggested […] to other travelers we met that they should stay here the next time they are in town. If we get back to San Francisco we will definitely stay there.

"Nice but expensive"
Excellent place to stay near the wharf and in the middle of all the hustle and bustle. Great service, and a nice restaurant attached to it. Rooms were small but clean and have a cute decor. Beware, there will be $50 added for parking!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Experience at Argonaut"
It was our 45 anniversary and it couldn't have been a better experience. From the minute we stepped out of the cab until we left for home was one wonderful and pleasant experience. The staff was pleasant and most helpful. The doormen were fun and inviting. The Mermaid Restaurant was always a welcome sight after hours of sight seeing and exhaustion. […] Food and staff were both god so didn't feel we had to go elsewhere to look for dinner. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We arrived early morning and were mentally prepared to have to leave our bags with the front desk until our room was available. The lady at the desk advised us that she did have a room available and checked us in. The hotel was in an excellent location, everyone was always friendly and pleasant. Unfortnately our room was facing the back side of the […] building so the view was not as great as we were told it would be. As first time visitors to San Francisco, we were hoping to wake up to a view of the bay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very enjoyable. Very busy neighborhood due to Fleet Week, Blue Angels and the holiday weekend but the hotel remained very quiet from the outside noise. Will return when not so busy so one can enjoy Fisherman's Wharf more. Rooms were very comfortable and the staff very efficient and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Would stay again when in area, locatn was great, staff was very helpfulGenuine Expedia guest review
Awesome.....everythingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I thought the Hotel was wonderful. The pictures that are on the website are exactly what the room looked like. The Concierges were very helpful in suggesting a seafood restaurant close by and other points of interest. very conveniently located. I would recommend this hotel to everyone I know. My friend stayed here about 7 or 8 years ago for a wedding […] and recommend it when we were returning from our cruise and before we left for Boston, MA. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"All you need in San Francisco"
The room was big and very quiet. We enjoyed a great dinner at the hotel restaurant. You must try the clam chowder!!! Our dog enjoyed the Kimpton as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location for walking."
Good experience overall. Though my friend and I booked the room in advance, we did not get the bay view we had requested.Genuine Expedia guest review
"San Francisco First Time"
I would definitely reccommend this hotel. Great staff and the doorman Donavan was awesome. From your first impression to your checkout, everything was first class. Loved the wine and beer tasting at nights too. It is right in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf. Easy to everything. first class accomendations.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Standard King with NO view"
We got a Standard King for pretty high price. On Hotels.com it didn't say anything about view or no-view. When we got to the room, the room was facing the other rooms. Absolutely no view, no city view, just other rooms with blinds closed 10 feet away. It was my husband and I's first gateway from since we had the baby in 2 and half years, thus we picked […] this hotel with great reviews. We requested at the reception if they still had the room with view left and she confirmed yes but we had to pay extra $75. No hospitality was received. We were very disappointed.

Loved the hotel, clean, safe, free wine hour and bikes to ride. Excellent location and our daily housekeepers went above and beyond.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to the action"
Clean place! Very accommodating staff. Loved the wine hour! Argonaunt is next to Ghirardelli Square and cable car line. Lots of restraunts with in walking distance. The non tourists places are just a cable car ride or a train ride away. The ferry building is a must do for breakfast or lunch. Would stay at the Argonaut again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel."
Great view, near the pier. Very good staff. Nice room number.Genuine Expedia guest review
"amazing nights stay!"
Romantic getaway was even better just by staying at this hotel. Complementary wine and beer at check in. Rooms were immaculate. Service was above the level expected with help from what to see as tourist and food venue choices. I will be staying here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel on Fisherman's Warf"
Great boutique hotel on Fisherman's Warf but out of the mainstream of tourists and traffic. Easy walk to all warf attractions and restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Argonaut is beautifully decorated, and a wonderful place to stay! It's just a short walk from Fisherman's Wharf and Ghiradelli Square. I don't have enough great things to say about the Concierge Service. They assisted in organizing my Napa wine tour, were very friendly and accommodating and always ensured that they followed up on what they said […] they would do. I highly recommend Argonaut for their exceptional service! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Changed room 3 times. When checking in we were assigned the rooms that nobody wants. First room right on street level. After saying we didn't want room they assigned a room smaller than the first. The bellhop had to show us 3 other rooms before they gave us a decent room. Considering the room was $400 a night I would have preferred better service. Want […] to charge me for WiFi. Had to go to front desk and ask for WiFi password. They finally gave it to me and told me to keep it a secret. Meantime free WiFi was part of the password. Same with coffee. They had to give us vouchers to get a coffee in the morning. Hotel recommended a Chinese restaurant very popular. We waited 50 minutes was still not seated because we had no reservation. He should have called to make one for us or tell us to make reservation Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"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

"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

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

"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

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
