great location but make sure you get outside room

Posted Nov 21, 2014
Pros: location and just a little different.
Cons: more insulation from noise outside and other rooms
Location: you are right on Fisherman's Wharf and the beautiful bay. Location is the best I saw
expedia put us in inside room with view of walls. Argonaut was nice enough to change our room because it was our anniversary. Insist on outside view or you will be looking at walls.

Fisherman's Wharf at your doorstep

Posted Nov 20, 2014
Pros: The hotel has a daily wine reception in the lobby, featuring local wine and beer - a nice way to meet other guests from around the world.
The Argonaut Hotel is ideally situated in San Francisco for a tourist - close to the water and the cable car lines and the beginning of many of the tour bus routes. There are many attractions and good restaurants within walking distance.

Most of the staff we encountered was very unfriendly and rude.

Fantastic location!

Posted Nov 19, 2014
The Argonaut is a warm and welcoming hotel at the end of Fisherman's Wharf, and next to the end of the Powell Hyde cable car line. We booked a room with a view of the Golden Gate bridge which you can glimpse depending on the fog. The bridge was further away than I thought it would be so it wasn't the view I was expecting. The location is fantastic though... a short walk to Pier 33 where the Alcatraz ferries depart (book online in advance to avoid disappointment), and there's a good variety of restaurants in the area. We stayed in mid November and I'm surprised how quiet everything was after around 8.30pm though. Compared to the rates of the other hotels nearby, and the big name hotels in the downtown area, the Argonaut was really good value. Would stay again no doubt.

Lovely location and fair price in a great city.

Great location for a fair price near all the sights you have to see in San Francisco. All the staff are accomodating and make you feel at home. Stephen (or Stephan) who works the door/bell desk is very kind, always willing to have some banter and share a laugh with you. He made the stay very worthwhile and memorable.

Fantastic hotel.

Posted Nov 17, 2014
Pros: Location. Nightly free wine tasting.
Location: Fishermans wharf - What more is there to say.
Handy for all tourist sites - Right next to the cable car terminus. Not sure whether it is worth choosing the $25 breakfast as the Buena vista cafe is 5 minutes walk away and they server great breakfasts.

Great location, atmosphere and friendliness

Posted Nov 15, 2014
Pros: I love having a little couch in the room so you don't have to always sit on the bed to be comfortable.
Cons: OK, the rooms are a bit small but hey when they're this cute who cares?
Location: Walk easily up and down the Piers and to Ghiradelli square
Loved our stay. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Blue Mermaid served great food. Wine social in the evening. Walking distance to lots of attractions...what more could you want?
