This nautically-themed property, converted from an historic brick canning factory, is something of a cross between a cruise ship and a sailing ship of old, thanks to the shining wood floors and huge wooden beams. The rooms are super-cozy, a decent size and well appointed. Expect to pay at least $350/night with tax, but this is San Francisco -- and... More

Booked this one on AA miles which was a great choice. The rooms were a good size for all 4 of us but was totally bummed to get a low level street view room. Call ahead to make the request for water view and high floor as you will be much happier than being in the dungeon. Decent food for... More

My wife and I stayed at the beautiful Argonaut Hotel with room views of the Maritime Park and San Francisco Bay for five nights in July 2016. We have traveled to San Francisco for the past 35 years and know many of the hotels in varying price ranges and locations. By far, the Argonaut offered the most spacious room, unparalleled,... More

I had a great 2 night stay at the Argonaut. This building is in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf, which makes it easy to get around the most popular places in San Francisco. There is a classy restaurant, The Blue Mermaid located inside the hotel. For those seeking a little history, a free museum is also inside of the building.... More

The Argonaut offers a wonderful respite to the busy excitement of the Fishermen's Wharf, especially on the 4th of July. The rooms are beautifully appointed comfortable and clean. A stay at The Argonaut is a treat while visiting San Francisco.

The hotel room was clean, comfortable, and decorated appealingly in a nautical theme. Lovely main floor lounge. The concierge, all of them, were extremely friendly and helpful. The location was right on Fisherman's Wharf, the location couldn't have been better. Except because of the location there was no parking at the hotel. They did have a complimentary valet service, but... More

Great location, cute boutique hotel with nice, clean rooms and a nautical theme. Walking distance to almost everything in San Francisco. We booked the regular room, and thought it was perfectly adequate. The Blue Mermaid was great for breakfast and a drink and attached to the hotel. The valet staff and doormen were excellent!!
