I loved the location of the Argonaut on Fisherman's Wharf. Towards the end of the street and not too busy in or around the hotel yet within a minute you are in the heart of everything. The bar and restaurant had great food and brilliant service. Rooms were a great size and bathroom amenities were top notch. The only let...

The Argonaut is truly in the best possible location for exploring beautiful San Francisco - and we're so happy that you found the hotel to be the perfect home away from home!

It was my third trip to SF but thanks to Hotel Argonaut, it was completely different. First of all, the hotel has fantastic location: right next to piers and Maritime park, where you can jump on the tram. It's exactly where all tourist start their journey through SF, but far enough from Pier 39 not to get all the noises...

This is a really good spot. Worth asking for a room with a view, I had a view of Alcatraz which was fun. Bar downstairs has nice outdoor space. Only higgles were dirty windows and low water pressure so showering was uninspiring.

We chose this hotel in part because of its outstanding location just across from the water at Fisherman's Wharf, close to many attractions, and in part because of the many positive reviews. The photos online looked a bit strange, but we decided to go for it anyway. We were very impressed with the comfortable bed, spacious room, free bike rentals,...
