We loved the hotel. The most comfortable bed I slept in, it was fantastic. The room was very nice. The position of the hotel was perfect for getting around and discover Los Angeles. We walked around Fishermans Warf had a nice dinner at the pier. We Took the gram and enjoyed San Fransisco. We will be back!

The small window made it feel more gloomy that it needed to be, but it was well decorated and welcoming. Bathroom looked a bit dated and like an old Holiday Inn or similar so an... More

I always learn the names of the people that serve me at a restaurant or wherever I travel simply because it's polite and makes for a nice friendly experience. In order, these are the people that made my stay at the Argonaut an experience I will always remember: Priscilla, Terry, Donovan, Josh, Chris, Tenzin, Julia, Marilyn, Raveena and Omar. Priscilla...

Excellent accommodations and helpful staff. Ask for a room with bay view. It's in a great area, be sure to check out Pier 39. The hotel is centrally located with a great restaurant too. There's even a small fitness room too!
