Average hotel

Posted Mar 21, 2015
Very disappointed with our stay here. Was looking for luxury but it just felt like any old busy, tacky, commercial hotel. Wish I had chosen a smaller boutique hotel as it was not worth the price.

San Francisco Jewel.

Posted Mar 21, 2015
Pros: Everything. It's the only place we stay in San Francisco.
Cons: Lack of room room service menu past 2200hrs, but no big deal. Plan accordingly. Probably shouldn't eat that late anyway!
Location: You're on the pier. Enough said! :-)
This is how all hotels should be operated. Sure, being a boutique hotel lends a few quirks to the experience, but that's why you're staying in a place with character, not a bland, soulless chain.

Great stay. We had 2 small dogs with us and they were warmly welcomed. The staff ensured that we were all well looked after.

Pros: Room decoration, style, bed.

The hotel employees are nice and helpful. The location is good for eating, sight seeing, bicycling. Everything except the comforter has some smell.

Spent 4 nights at the Argonaut and even though the rooms are small (which is typical for the Wharf), it was an excellent experience. Friendly staff and a great location and facility.

Great location for sightseeing

Posted Mar 16, 2015
We stayed at the argonaut for 3 nights and could not have been happier. The building itself is beautiful, room was very spacious, and the lobby was a great area to relax in especially during the free cocktail hour with wine and local beer. The location is ideal for sightseeing. Walking distance of ferry building market, the Alcatraz ferry, ghirardelli square, Lombard street, coit tower, and the entrance of one of the famous cable cars. Fisherman's wharf area is very high volume/touristy but before noon each day it was actually quite peaceful. I highly recommend staying at the argonaut!

Staff helped surprise Husband & Sister

Posted Mar 12, 2015
Pros: Great service, yummy restaurant and free wine & beer happy hour! The rooms were a nice size and airy.
Cons: Hard to think of anything that could be improved, maybe an area to sunbath but there is sooo much else to do.
Location: Located so close to the Bay, loads of historical boats to see, near beach and Chocolate Factory. I love the location and recommend highly.,
I had mentioned to the staff that I had planned this trip to San Francisco to celebrate my husband's and sister's 50th birthday. They had a bottle of wine and a handwritten note in the hotel rooms, so nice. This hotel is close to the bay and numerous restaurants, and in walking distance to a load of activities. They offer a discount on most activities arranged through them and with their help..... we were so busy and had the best time.
