Very nice. We will definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Always a favorite"
We loved the Argonaut; we've stayed there many times in the past. In fact we were married at the Argonaut in 2010. While we highly recommend the hotel, one thing has changed... The beds are very firm and not as comfortable as they used to be. Other than that one minor frustration, it's in a great location, price was good, atmosphere was perfect. Right […] next to the cable car station, next to the beach, next to Ghirardelli Square, next to Pier 39. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Honeymoon in San Fran"
The staff and hotel were excellent. The staff was very helpful and courteous.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was wonderful. Very clean and staff was amazing, very friendly. Convenient valet parking and great location, feels safe to walk around at late hours lots to do, walking distance to fishingwharf really. Doorman were very nice, Ernie was great. Hotel offered complimentary drinks for perfect hours hot cocoa and wine. Items in bar really expensive […] but there is a 7-11 in the next block. Only complain is you can hear people on top walking, beds werent that comfortable and the restroom sink was loud appeared to be drippjng. Overall would stay here again.

"New Years Eve"
Stayed here for NYE and had a great time.....great location (walking distance to many restaurants/shopping) and nly mins from Golden Gate Bridge. Would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, lovely hotel"
The hotel was lovely and conveniently located near Ghiradelli Square and Fishermans Wharf. The staff was friendly and ready to assist by providing tips for restaurants and attractions. The room was clean, had a well stocked mini bar, and was quiet. We really appreciated the specialty bloody mary at the Blue Mermaid - perfect after the drive into town […] from wine country. I would stay here again and recommend it to family and friends. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Yum, wine country followed by time in SF with bloody mary's?! Sounds like a fantastic getaway. I'm glad everything was clean and quiet, and the team helped you get the most out of your visit! Cheers!
"worth every penny"
Rooms were very unique, location is perfect for everything fishermans wharf, but the best part, the service was outstanding, from the front door to the desk, concierge and everyone else, just an excellent stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Well, thank you for spending those pennies with us! I'm delighted you felt the value was there and the service stood out like that. They are some very good people, and we're lucky to work together here!
"Location Location Location"
It's the location that gives this hotel a top rating. The friendly and accommodating staff makes the stay a pleasure as well as the wine happy hour. The room was a normal hotel room nothing over the top in my book. May have been able to book a room with a view for more $'s but I had absolutely no view. I would stay again if the price was right.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The best place to stay in SF"
Just simply one of the best places to stay in SF, especially if your bringing you dog.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks, Troy! I hope your dog got to enjoy one of our dog treats or at least a dog bed and bowl? Arff!

"Great boutique hotel"
This was wonderful with great service! Loved the free wine hour in the longe area every night. Beds are lovely. The entire staff was awesome.The only negative was the $52.00/day parking cost.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will be back!!!"
Totally loved this place. We stayed in a suite overlooking the bay. It was bit noisy in the morning sue to construction but that won't always be there. That was the only con about this place. EVERYTHING else was a PRO. We could not have been happier with everything from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Service was over the top and the room […] was beautiful, clean, and very comfortable. We found our new favorite place! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Hotel was great, the service was superb...but parking was horrible, paying $61.00 a nite 4 parking is outrageous!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Walking Distance from Most Sights"
Overall the hotel was cute, clean, conveniently located. The only downside was they were cleaning the hallway carpets and it smelled like wet dog. And there is road construction being done right in front of the hotel and for several blocks down. Not their fault, but wish i would have known.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The evening doorman was very rude. He made political comments about our shopping. Very personal and offending.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place but our room was oddly configured!"
We loved the visit and the hotel contributed to our enjoyment. We especially liked the friendliness of all the staff, the location of the hotel, the daily wine reception, the great breakfast restaurant! But our room overlooked a roof, and we could not even see a bit of sky! It was so narrow, each of us would have to wait while the other person passed. […] I am sure there are more conpmfortable rooms, and I would be sure to ask for such a room next time. Finally, the construction all along the main street that the hotel was on, scheduled to last for many months we were told, marred the ideal nature of the location. But, with the provisos noted, we would definitely consider staying there gain. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel - Great Location"
This is one of the best hotels in San Fran. This is my 6th year staying here for work and pleasure. Staff are friendly and helpful - and the rooms are lovely too. It's a great location for all the activities around bay and also handy for getting into town - a 5 min cab ride. Will be staying there again next year for sure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Anniversary Trip"
What a unique and beautiful hotel! If you want your stay to be memorable, stay here! Fabulous!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was wonderful. Everything was better than expected. I will definitely be coming back again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"It's a Kimpton, need you say more?"
As always, a dependable hotel from a dependable companyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"best customer service!"
there are many ways that this hotel outshines the competition; beautifully decorated rooms, great views, hosted wine hour each evening, location close to fisherman's wharf & the hyde st. cable car station. but the staff at the argonaut is the hotel's best feature. from the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. i give this hotel my highest […] recommendation!

"Nice-but don't pay for bay view"
I really enjoyed staying here, however, I payed the hefty rate for a bay view and I had a street view. When I asked at the front desk about the view he said (while making quotaion symbols with his fingers), that it was technically a bay view. I could see the top of the bridge, but no bay. Other then that, it was very nice and clean, something I've experienced […] with practically all my Kimpton accommodations. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"San Francisco Stop over before Hawaii"
Walked thru this hotel when I was out in Frsco about 9 years ago and said I would stay here on my next trip out, well we did and loved it. Best hotel we ever stayed in. The people were fantastic, had a wine open house every nite at 6pm. The room was great, just wish we had a better view. The bed was so comfortable and roomy. Was worth the extra cost […] being on the waterfront and right next to the cable cars. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nicely appointed hotel. Convenient location. Clean and friendly. We had a room overlooking the bay. Nice view but it got a little loud with the garbage trucks doing pickups in the middle of the night-but that's not the hotels fault.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"In the middle of the action"
We selected the Argonaut because it was our first trip to SF and the hotel was located within waking distance of Fisherman's Warf and all of the other waterfront attractions. We were treated very well and the room was very nice. It was too noisy and busy for our tastes but we were willing to overlook that to be close to everything. It is a great place […] to stay if you like walking and biking everywhere. Also, the car rental agencies are just around the corner. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
very comfortable; food great and the happy hour was so enjoyable met some interesting and friendly folks and the wine was a great plus!! Would recomment the Argonaut to anyone going to San Francisco; the location was great!! Thanks to the person at the desk who found my credit card on the floor ; i dropped it when i checked in; and there it was!!! The […] environmental cleanliness staff was great. thanks for a great time!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"First rate hotel with great location!"
Argoanut is a wonderful hotel and is convenient to Fisherman's Wharf, Ghiradelli Square, dining, etc.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not enough for the price."
I was really expecting an amazing hotel and a room with a good view, which I paid extra for. The hotel was nice and the room was comfortable, but it's not what I would expect for such a pricey establishment. The view was a sliver and difficult to see through the dingy windows.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
From our first step into the hotel we were impressed. Check in was fast...the staff was friendly. They surprised us with a bottle of champagne delivered to our room to celebrate our elopement. The location was perfect...within a few minutes walk Ghirardelli square, Fisherman's Wharf, Lombard Street, Street car, and lots of shopping. I will definitely […] be staying there again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was conveniently located just a few blocks from the resturant where we had late night reservations. It made it perfect to walk to and from. The hotel was also very quaint and the staff was great. The only minor issue was one of the staff members thought our room was vacant and opened the door when I was in the midst of getting dressed..other than […] that, it was a great hotel and we would indeed stay there again.

"Perfect gateway to SFO romantic spot"
Perfect Location, good quality of room ...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfection! Wharf right outside your front door!"
From the moment we arrived, greeted by cheerful valet/bellmen/desk clerk, we were thrilled with our stay at the Argonaut. I was practically jumping and down with happiness at how pretty the lobby was. You never know for sure what it will be like when you book online. The desk clerk upgraded us to a room with a view of The Cannery. It was almost eerily […] quiet, but you can crank out the window, which was a nice touch, and we could hear a man playing live jazz music down on the corner. The wine reception at 5:00 was a nice touch, but if you're having a wonderful time out exploring the city, don't rush back for it. It's not THAT great. I mean, how much did you spend to come to San Francisco? We happened to be ready to come change clothes and go toward North Beach, having enjoyed the wharf all day, so we had some wine and chatted with other guests, and it was nice. There is a wine bar on one side of the hotel, that does wine tastings. Very nice. And a museum on the other side of the hotel, which looked GREAT, but we were checking out and I barely had time to dash through it. I would loved to have stayed and checked it out more. This is by far the most pleasant experience I have had in SF, and they've all been good. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel staff exceeded our expectations making a special occasion even more special. Will return in a heartbeat!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value, good location, neighborhood gem"
The Argonaut is tucked away neatly in the shadow of Ghirardelli Square. The king room was very spacious and it was very clean and comfortable. The restaurant was good and the wine tasting next door was a neat surprise. This was a great value and a nice change of pace from our usual Union Square locations. Staff service was impeccable!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Agronaut Hotel-loved it!"
January - loved the location!! First time in SF. I stayed 4 days, I would have loved to stay 1 month in the Agronaut. Just loved to cross the street and walked around the Fishermans Wharf. We rented bicycles to cross the Golden Gate right next to the Hotel. Took the City tours, cable cars and trolleys one block away from the Hotel. The view from my […] room.. Alcatraz. Just loved it. Thanks for a great trip!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Argonaut - a pleasant surprise"
We booked this hotel because of the location: right on the cable car line and at the waterfront. I saw on the website that they we undergoing renovations so when we checked in, I mentioned that since we we celebrating our 36th wedding anniversary we we concerned about remodeling noise. We were assured that our room would be unaffected and no work was […] done at unusual hours. We were told to check out the room and if we didn't like it they would get us another. It was perfect. Everyone was so friendly. Blase at the front desk sent up Champagne and that got us through until the wine pour in the lobby they have each evening. We would definetely stay there again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Argonaut Hotel Fisherman's Wharf San Francisco"
The doorman and parking attendants were great when we arrived. They took care of the bags very quickly. Check in was smooth and our bags arrived at our room just minutes after we did! The hotel staff was friendly and the rooms very clean and comfortable. There was afternoon hot chocolate (a bit weak) and later wine in the lobby. The Hotel is on the […] edge of the Wharf area so a little quieter which was just what we wanted. The Cable Car is just around the corner and other public transportation is close. Kudos the the doorman, he held our car for us on checkout and we grabbed a bowl of chowder at the Blue Mermaid on his recommendation. Great chowder and exceptional service, made the end of our trip a great experience! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel Argonaut in Fisherman's Whart"
Spacious rooms for SF - love the new decor - more muted yet still maintains nautical theme. Have stayed at other SF Kimpton hotels and this one upholds the same quality. Excellent front desk service as well as bellhop service. Would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel"
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Argonaut Hotel very much. As tourist we had a few questions about things such as cab service, trolley service and train service to Sacramento and each staff person from front desk, bell hops and hotel consigliore were very helpful. The only complaint I would have with the hotel is lack of explanation for hotel charges. […] We prepaid prior to arriving and were told on check out that our bill was paid in full. Within a few days of our departure a charge from the hotel appeared on my charge card and I have not been able to obtain an explanation to date. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great, Fun and CLEAN Hotel, fantastic location"
This is one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. Everything was clean and nice, the staff were great, and only a block or a couple of blocks to some of the greatest sightseeing in the city. I will absolutely return here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location and amenities"
This hotel is located a block from Ghirardelli Square, the cable car main station, bus routes, and in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf (oh, and right next to In-N-Out!). I would highly recommend The Argonaut. The staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, there was complimentary hot chocolate and wine in the evening and overall I had a wonderful […] stay! If in the area again I would book The Argonaut. The only negative I have is that the parking garage costs $47 a day (you can park around the corner at Ghirardelli Square for $35).

Wish I could have stayed more than 1 night. I hope to stay there again. The staff were attentive, informative, and seemed genuinly concerned with making it the best stay. The hotel was supposed to be completing a remodel but it had no effect on my stay, I saw no signs of construction. Great location for the wharf, North Beach, and the cable cars can […] take you to China town or Union Square. The restaurant was also great. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent value, unique San Francisco experience"
Although a very low key hotel, the nautical furnishings and waterfront location give the guest a neighborhood feeling very different from other hotels we have stayed in in San Francisco. We loved exploring Hyde Pier and the historic waterfront park, watching the activities at the local swimming and rowing club, and strolling to the Buena Vista Cafe […] (a mere block away). The cable car terminus is just steps from the hotel front door, opening the possibility of going anywhere in San Francisco without having to climb the hills on your own two feet. We have stayed in many San Francisco hotels over the years, but this was the first time that we had a sense of being a part of a working port. We'll return for sure!

As usual, the staff was very accommodating and helpful. Our room was somewhat narrow and small. Despite this, location for the activities in the area -the docks , Ghiradelli Square was ideal. MGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Argonaut is extremely important to us."
Soon after we met, my fiance flew me to San Francisco for New Year's, so that I could meet his son and daughter. We stayed at the Argonaut. Last year, for New Year's, we again ventured to San Francisco...and the Argonaut. Dutch, with help from his son and daughter, proposed to me on New Year's Eve, in front of Scoma's. Steve, one of the doormen at the […] Argonaut, had helped them to set the whole thing up, and made a grand announcement of our engagement in the middle of the street in front of the hotel. We have always been made to feel very welcome, and very special at the Argonaut. I can't imagine staying anywhere else for our honeymoon, after we're married on Christmas Eve this year.
