Argonaut Hotel - a Noble House Hotel, San Francisco
San Francisco Arogonaut on the Wharf!
The staff is excellent..... Very friendly and helpful! The rooms are clean and the bed and pillows are comfortable. The only thing I can think of is a small refrigerator would have been nice and I could have gotten it for $15.00 but I didn’t want to hassle with it.

Argonaut Hotel - a Noble House Hotel, San Francisco
This place sucked.
The hotel was ok but for $350 per night it was a complete ripoff. The walls are so thin we could hear a person coughing literally all night. There was zero view and if you wanted to open the shudders they wont open all the way because whoever designed the rooms left a huge beam in the way. That disnt matter though because the view was of a concrete roof with planters around to attempt to give the inpression its a nice place. We requested an upgrade for the second night in which they literally waited till 3pm to let us move into. On top of that they charged us a 2 night upgrade even though it was only one night where they moved us. Then they charged us another $150 for a “resort fee” which was not in the booking. My booking said I will be charged $700 but the hotel chaged me $1100 dollars before i called and figured out what all the upcharges are. They even tried to charge me for 2 days valet when my car was there for one. Overall a conplete ripoff I personally would never recommend this hotel to anyone.

Fisherman’s Wharf Gem
Beautifully appointed and stylish rooms. Love the restored warehouse vibe and the nautical decor. Fabulous views and great location for enjoying the Fusherman’s Wharf area. Easy muni and cable rides (or walks) to North Beach, Ferry Plaza and more. A gem.

Alrighty Then...
Nice hotel with excellent location if you’re wanting to take in Fisherman’s Wharf. Staff was great also. But for a room with the view of a wall, it was overpriced.
