"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
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Hello, Grants! I'm glad the bed was what you needed for a restful vacation, and we'll thank the service and housekeeping teams for you sa well! Hope to see you again.
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
"Close to our area of interest."
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!
"As always, love this place..."
Just simply one of the best hotels in SF, especially if you bring your dog.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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
Beautiful place to stay. Blase at front desk was friendly and efficient. Well worth the money for location and rooms.Being from Napa and working at a four diamond resort, I had some high expectations, and they passed with flying colors.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! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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
Great locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right at the end of the Cable Car Line!"
We were more than impressed with this hotel. It is very new and immaculate. Located only a block away from the Cable Car line, it was convenient for travel and also for dining options, as it sits right on the wharf edge. Our king bed was extremely comfortable and the shower was hard and hot (just like I like it). The toiletries supplied seemed to be […] a good quality. Towels were large, soft and plentiful. The staff were very eager to please and very welcoming. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Thanks, Ronni! We are so appreciative of this prime location, and I'm glad the inside of the hotel was just wanted you wanted as well. I'll let housekeeping know you're loving their fluffy new towels and "immaculate" cleaning standards in the room. Those folks "behind the scenes" are such a key part of the experience!
"Great location, very comfortable room."
Lovely hotel right on the wharf. Very comfortable and homely. Loved the little touches like bathrobes, umbrella and welcome/congratulations message with bottle of wine in our room (on our honeymoon). Danny, one of the bellboys, was particularly helpful with information and logging onto the wifi. Enjoyed the free wine tasting every evening. Would definitely […] stay here again.

An excellent hotel in a great location, with great access to Downtown and Castro on the cablecar and F-Line respectively.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had a very good experience at the Argonaut! Beautiful hotel in a great location for seeing all of San Francisco. Would choose this hotel again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best at Fishermans Wharf"
Quirky boutique hotel. Rooms nicely designed and spacious. Bathrooms are small but fine. Tram and cable cars very close. Stay here to see pier 29, the bridge and seaside stuff. Stay in Union Square for shopping and eateries. Though Gary Danko around the corner is a bit special :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing Location - Close to Must-See Sights"
It was amazing from beginning to end! Great location, friendly staff and very helpful. Well definitely stay at this same hotel on our next visit!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Argonaut Hotel, a Kimpton Hotel Hi, Rob & Sharon, Thanks for the shout out to our staff. I'm glad everything was so spectacular, and we'll look forward to your return!
"Great place to stay in San Francisco"
This hotel was perfect! The nautical theme was a nice touch. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable, and the location was ideal. Wine hour was a nice touch too! We would go back in a heartbeat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We have stayed in SF before and had wanted to try this hotel. Glad we did, staff were welcoming and the room was lovely - great beds, lots of space and very clean. There is a free wine/beer hour each evening in the lobby which was always very busy. The hotel is in a great location for Fisherman's Wharf and it is easy to take a trolley down to Union […] Sq as the stop is just along the road. Only downside is that the hotel itself isn't cheap to stay in and they charge a lot for valet parking. I would recommend this hotel if you havn't been to SF before and want to stay down at the wharf, if not I would probably look at a hotel downtown instead. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful and cosy room close to everything"
Room was clean and very inviting. The staff were all very helpful, helped us get taxis and tickets to sold out tours. There are a lot of very nice restaurants in the area including the one attached to the hotel. Being right on the fishermans wharf was very convenient to see all the attractions.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfy, but you pay for everything!"
We had 1 nights in San Francisco and having spent a week in an RV we thought, "let's treat ourselves". The hotel was expensive but the glowing reviews justified it. We arrived to a construction site outside the hotel (nothing they can do about that but a little discount for the inconvenience and noise would have been appreciated) but promptly met be […] concierges at the door. The 1st tip for transporting our bags from the taxi to the reception was handed over (Just $2 but we were unsure what the going rate is for tipping). The reception staff were very helpful and helped us to plan what little time we have in San Fran. 2nd tip to the Bell Boy for transferring our bags from reception to our room (this time we splashed out $4!). Our room was advertised as a bay view room - which is true but at 45 degree angel and a little imagination. We had the misfortune of opening a bottle of water each, which we naively thought to be complimentary but was actually $3 each! We ventured out and returned to our room later that evening. Turned on the TV to find nothing was free, not even any cable TV! Our nights sleep was frequently disturbed by an obviously troubled local in-coherently shouting (again nothing much you can do but it did spoil our sleep). Overall a comfortable stay but for the price we wouldn't expect to have to pay for everything! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"An amazing hotel .... an amazing experience ..."
We had the most amazing stay at the Argonaut Hotel - the staff (especially Emily Glick, Manager) are outstanding and most helpful, the rooms are to an exceptional standard and in general the hotel is top class.
