"Perfect location for seeing the sights in San Fran"
Had a great time and the hotel was in a perfect location to get to everything. Staff was very helpfully and did everything possible to make a stay a fun one. Had read some not so positive reviews before my stay and have to disagree with them as my experience was nothing but positive.

"Perfection on Fisherman's Wharf"
Outstanding! We loved this hotel. However, our major disappointment was, not in the hotel, but in the fact that Hotels.com wouldn't give us credit for staying there. We missed out on two nights towards out 10 night = 1 free. This was a VERY expensive hotel!!

"Expensive, but Great Hotel"
We participated in the Escape from The Rock Alcatraz event. The hotel was very conveniently located to the event, which made it easy for 4:30AM check in time. It was pretty pricey, but it's the price you pay for convenience in SF. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I would think for the price, breakfast would be included, but it wasn't. The room was very clean and we loved the cruise ship décor. We will probably stay here again next year when we sign up for the Escape from The Rock event.

"nice hotel if you get the right room!"
1st room was an interior room - no view except other interior rooms. my husband called front desk and was told - all booked - no other rooms available. Felt like being in a closet. I called later and was told they did have outside rooms available - for an upgrade charge of $30 per nite. Much better - view of street and park. For an interior room you may as well book a hotel off fisherman's wharf for a lot cheaper. I thought all rooms had some kind of view - the street,the bay, the park or something! On nite before we left,our key card did not work. After a long day of walking and getting up to room very tired,very inconvenient.They never even apoligized. This must be a common problem - the same exact thing happened when we stayed here a few years ago.

"Location is perfect!"
In general, hotel was fine. However, since they were JUST transitioning from a Kimpton to some unknown brand, they all seemed a little awkward and had some computer glitches -- like our room keys suddenly didn't work -- as we were schlepping food, etc. back to the room. Bathroom could have been Cleaner! The coffee pot looked dusty and unappealing, as if they never pick it up and clean it or the counter underneath. Didn't drink!! Didn't trust the drinking glasses either!! "View" of the Golden Gate Bridge was only possible if you could crane your neck a lot--except there were BIRD DROPPINGS on the window!

"Great facility, location and parking staff."
My wife and I were guests for the last evening of our summer getaway after touring wine country for the previous part of our trip. The hotel was a mixed bag. The location is great for tourists, as it is fairly central to ALL of the tourist attractions of San Francisco. The facilities are well kept, the decorations are wonderful, and the architecture of the room very attractive. Our room was enormous (We had reserved a king suite), with an ample living and dining area complemented by a spacious bedroom. The furniture was comfy, the bed was extremely restful, and everything was clean. The poor part was the front desk staff. They were terrible. Our reservation was lost, and they treated us as though this was our fault. Even after showing them proof of payment and booking, we were told that we would be responsible for payment again while they were straightening out the issue. They did finally and magically "find" our reservation. Upon check out the next morning, the nice woman at the front desk asked how our stay was, and I was about to mention the only was that no one came to replace a light bulb as requested and the noise, but, before I could even get those words out of my mouth, she interrupted with the details of the parking charges. Conclusion, we're told to ask, but we don't really care. If you have to have the best location, stay here. However, if you are able and willing to walk just a few blocks, there are better choices.

"July 4th on SF's famed Fisherman's Wharf"
We loved our 4th of July stay at the Argonaut. The staff was friendly, professional, and very helpful. The afternoon Wine Reception was a big plus each day. The room was clean, comfortable, and met all our needs. We ate at the Blue Mermaid two of three nights and it was great. The location is perfect for seeing Fisherman's Wharf and it is very easy to get around town using public transportation from here.

"Great location. Pay the extra $$ for the view."
Got a room for a discounted fare on Expedia a few days before travel date. Hotel is in a great location and front staff are great. I would suggest paying the higher rate for a room with a view of the bay. Otherwise you might get a view of the street (pic attached). Also thought I would attach a few general room photos that the hotel management may have left out. Just keeping it real!

"This is it!"
I spent way too much time looking for a hotel for my first visit to SF and I’m so glad I decided to stay at the Argonaut. Every single aspect of this place is carefully designed to satisfy guests (both human and canine!). The hotel just has a lot of personality and hipness to it, without leaving great service and hotel basics behind. The rooms are super clean and comfortable, the location is unbeatable (for a tourist, a first timer in particular), the food at the Blue Mermaid is spectacular and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. We didn’t get a room with a bay view since we weren’t planning to be looking out the window too much but outside experiencing the city and it turned out to be a good idea as our room was quiet, away from the elevator and very spacious. Treat yourself to a stay at the Argonaut, this place is amazing!

"Across from Fisherman's Wharf & next to cable car"
We could see cable car turnaround from our room ... helpful to see how long lines were. King suite is spacious for 2 people with separate living rm area. Valet parking is not very efficient. When you call for your car, they text you your estimated wait time! 10 to 20 minute wait times turned into 45 minutes to over 1 hr. Valet parking was not properly staffed especially for Friday & Saturday evenings. Hotel had to waive parking fees for entire stay & also pay our cab fares since valet guy still did not bring our cars after 45 minute wait. Hotel valets car in public parking lot about 1 block from hotel ... I suggest you self park. Rest of hotel staff were excellent! Because of hotel's convenient location to Fisherman's Wharf & Cable car, charm of hearing sea lions in the morning, spacious rooms, & professionalism of hotel's front desk staff ... we would stay here again

Typically there is at least 1 amenity at any hotel stay that does not meet most peoples satisfaction. I can honestly say that this hotel meets every expectation that I anticipate when away from home. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to anyone thinking of staying in the Fisherman's Wharf area. The staff is excellent and very accommodating. It is also close to all the activities and sites we wanted to see.
