This was the 2nd to last stop on a whirlwind tour of USA & Mexico....and Argonaut left the others in its wake.
Hotel Reception was excellent.....couldn't be more helpful.
Rooms were great ...clean..spacious...
Gym all good
Location outstanding..close to great restaurants etc

One tends to think that if you don't like it here you will never be pleased

Take a bow

Room Tip: Pick rooms looking toward street

I stay here every time I come to San Fran
It is such a charming hotel
And I always get a good night's sleep.
The rooms are decorated beautifully and the robes so cozy.
The have complimentary beverages at 5 and the staff goes out of their way to make sure you're happy
The bell staff are outstanding.

I love this property. It's so convenient too.

We stayed 4 nights and this hotel is one of our favorites. The location is terrific. Right on Jefferson Street (the street that runs the length of the waterfront). Very close to cable cars etc. The hotel was well appointed, staff really friendly and helpful and rooms well laid out and very comfortable. In addition, the hotel provides complementary wine and hot toddy's each afternoon dorm 5-6pm which is a lovely way to meet other guests and exchange holiday tips. Couldn't have been happier with our choice. Our room looked straight out to Alcatraz.

Room Tip: Comfortably slept 4 (self, hubby & 2 teenage girls) in 2 x QB's

I stayed at the Argonaut twice in the past ten days. The first time was for one night and the experience was terrific. I was somewhat disappointed the second visit for five nights where I found the level of service and staff's interest in or commitment to the guests seriously lacking.

The hotel is in a great location but I don't think I would stay more than three nights as Fishermens' Wharf loses its appeal after a while - there are only so many crab and chowder meals you can have, it is crowded and there really isn't that much to do. Also the restaurant in the hotel was closed indefinitely due to a problem with a gas main which wasn't going to be fixed anytime soon (I think the hotel was using the opportunity to refurbish the kitchen).

Would I stay again? Maybe, but the other Kimpton hotels I have used are much friendlier and service oriented.

We loved this hotel. Perfect location - a bit touristy near fishermans wharf but at the good end near the cable car area. Great beds, very quiet considering location. Really fresh clean too a dour teenage son loved the gym. Nice welcome complimentary wine happy hour. One tip: give the wine tasting place attached to hotel a miss. Complete rip off. We will go back to the argonaut for sure!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a bay view room.
