Very well positioned for Fisherman's Wharf area

Posted Jul 11, 2015
Excellent museum explaining the area in the past adjoins the hotel. In the same building but easy to miss. Well worth a visit. The Fisherman's Wharf area itself is tacky and touristy. Not a place I would want to go to again but I don't regret going once. The guy at the door is super friendly but lacks sincerity and is clearly just fishing for tips. Same patter with everyone. This is the American way but it irritates me massively. I have dragged my bags around the world but then I need to pay him to take them 10 yards from the door to the lobby! I need to pay someone else to take them to the room - he made this quite clear. Couldn't wait to be out of his reach. But apart from this the hotel was nice.

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!

Pros: The location.
Cons: A wider choice for the breakfast menu and more reasonable prices
Location: The location is perfect for the piers and beaches. Easy to catch the cable cars a good place for a relaxing break.
The breakfast menu in restaurant was expensive and the menu choice was disappointing.

This is it!

Cons: If I had to point out something to improve, perhaps the exhaust fan in the bathroom could work a bit better but that’s it.
Location: Cable cars, Ghirardelli Square, Pier 39, F line... all just a few minutes from the hotel.
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!

Wonderful at the Wharf

Posted Jul 7, 2015
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.

We would definitely stay again. My family enjoined the location because we were able to get to the local attractions easily.
