Thanksgiving family holiday worked out beautifully

Posted Dec 8, 2014
Pros: Location, size of room--very spacious, gym facility, d├ęcor.
Cons: More variety of food items in restaurant
Location: Take the old cable car to Union Square; run to Golden Gate bridge form the shoreline; go to Ghirdarelli Square for chocolate. Walk and enjoy!
Location of the hotel is perfect--ambience and environs were ideal for first and second time visitors to San Francisco. We rented a car but used only twice, no need with great transportation options in the Fisherman's Wharf area. Tours to Napa/Sonoma wine area also terrific and pick up from Argonaut convenient. Hotel staff were all warm and friendly and responded to our needs quickly.

Overall good experience. Had a room that was eye level with the sidewalk outside and requested to be moved higher since this didnt allow for privacy and Federico made it happen without any objection. Hotel was good and staff was better. I actually tried to stay another night, but they were completely booked.

Convenient location - Excellent staff

Posted Dec 3, 2014
Pros: The desk personnel were helpful and friendly. The restaurant was convenient and their food was very good.
Cons: The only thing that I would like to see would be a sign for directions to the elevator.
Location: There were so many things to do in the immediate are and many small locally owned businesses to shop from.
The Argonaut was the perfect location for our stay in San Francisco. The valet parking service made everything easier. The staff at the entrance, Doorman and Valet parking attendant, were helpful and friendly. I felt as though they were inviting me into their own home. The atmosphere was welcoming and easy to navigate. The rooms were clean, the bathroom large and spacious. Over all it was a great stay.

Great location and staff; spacious rooms

Enjoy the facilities. Easy walk to Marina and Crissy Field. Wine at 5-6 each evening a lovely bonus.

As usual this hotel was amazing!!!

Posted Nov 30, 2014
The hotel and setting is amazing!! The proximity to everything is fantastic!! The concierge was less than impressive. She booked a trip for us on a day we never discussed and we waited for a bus that never showed on the day we scheduled to go!! Our bad I guess we needed to double check the paid for in advance schedule we signed (didn't think I needed to)!! Other than that it was an amazing stay! I will always stay at kimpton Hotels!!!

Great Location, friendly staff.

Posted Nov 29, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Storage space: More than one luggage stand and perhaps a shelf/drawer in the bathroom.
Location: Everything you would want to see in San Francisco you can walk, cable car or taxi too easily.
Great location, friendly and helpful staff, nice wine social each evening which is a treat. Nice Boutique Hotel and although expensive the location and staff quality make it within the range of other hotels we have stayed at in this category.Rooms are clean and nicely appointed but there is not a lot of storage space, particularly in the bathroom. As we booked through expedia we were not able to collect any Kimpton points which we were unaware of. Overall I would recommend this Hotel and would stay there again.

Second time to stay here!

Posted Nov 29, 2014
My husband and I brought our two sons ages 11 and 18 to San Francisco. We had stayed at the Argonaut four years ago and loved it. We had a king deluxe room with a king size bed, a couch that folds out into a bed and we got a rollaway bed for our 11-year-old and we still had a very spacious room even with the couch folded out and the rollaway!

Return visit...3rd time! Excellent location.

Posted Nov 29, 2014
Pros: Staff were excellent, friendly and helpful. Room and bed very comfortable. Well stocked bar fridge and snack bar, reasonably priced items.
Cons: Coffee and tea-making facilities. Lack of instructions for the coffee/water jug.
Location: Excellent location Fisherman's Wharf. Less touristy, close to cable-car, historic wharf. Pier 39 only a short walk. Try Joanie's Diner for breakfast!
For our 3nd visit we went for a special deal price by Expedia. We were allocated an internal room which was very comfortable and equalled the standards of our previous visits.
