I stayed at the Argonaut for a meeting for 4 days. The location can't be beat: a few blocks from the Wharf, right around the corner from cable cars and sightseeing buses, plenty of hunting and gathering very near by. The staff were generally helpful, although it seemed they were overworked at times. My room had a great view of the inner roof (!). In general, the room was fairly comfortable and well-appointed, but a few things worth noting: I agree with Amanda F that the pillows were very stinky and musty smelling, like ones I would consider "recycling" at home. Something in my room smelled intermittently like a dirty diaper (could never figure out what.) The bathroom was reasonable, but no place to hang anything such as the nice, cozy robes that are provided. My A/C fan would not stay on, which was a problem as this hotel had VERY little sound insulation. I constantly heard people moving through the halls, and every thunk or anything from surrounding rooms was noticeable. Conversations in the next room were audible. I guess I expect more from a hotel of this caliber and price! Not sure I'd stay here again, but the location is a plus!
