This hotel was great! It is actually an old cannery owned by the National parks organization. It is styled with as much of the original building as possible, but modern as well. The staff was helpful, friendly, and always willing to help. The hotel is in the perfect location to walk to Ghirardelli Square, Fisherman's Wharf, and Pier 39. If... More

This was maybe my third or fourth stay at the Argonaut. It is in a perfect location near the water with easy access to Golden Gate bridge. Only one complaint, but this matters to both business and personal travelers: no room service past 10pm. Frankly, this is ridiculous and should be fixed. Otherwise, the Argonaut is the right place to... More

Our room was spacious and clean. We asked for a quiet location and it was great. Comfortable bed and linens. The staff, doormen, valets and restaurant staff were friendly and accomodating. We are returning in August.

Great location. Great service. Loved the room. Nice soft beds. The door man was more than helpful when we needed a cab very quickly. The bikes were so much fun. The concierge was helpful and so kind to my teenage daughters, they still talk about how well they were treated. We walked to Ghiradelli's, the cable car and wharf from... More

The location is great. Next to the cable car and steps from the wharf, restaurants and shopping. Rooms good sized but not practical as not enough table space. Had two issues with our room. The first night we noticed that the A/C was not working. They did fix it promptly the next day when we reported it. Then noticed when... More

Great location right on Fisherman's Wharf. The building, owned by the National Park Service, is on lease to hotel proprietor. Formerly one the large canneries that eventually became Del Monte. It has a cool nautical theme with lots of exposed original brick and beams from its cannery origins. Nice rooms, good service. The only knock is that the WiFi is... More

We stayed here last week. This hotel has everything going for it. The location, the atmosphere everything. The room was beautifully decorated and the bed was super comfy. If you are looking to stay in the heart of Fishermans wharf stay here.

We stayed in SF for 10 days, and decided to use the Argonaut as our base which proved to be a great decision. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hotel to anyone. Not only is the hotel of a good standard, its location is ideal - access to downtown is easy, a very nice area next to the hotel to... More

wf1968, So close to all the attractions, yet far enough to have some peace & quiet - the best of both worlds! San Francisco was once the epicenter of prospecting and immigration to California during the heart of the Gold Rush. That spirit is alive and well today, especially in one of San Francisco's most iconic neighborhoods. Our hotel location... More
