The Argonaut is a lovely hotel near Fisherman's Wharf. This is the place you want to stay if you want to be at Fisherman's Wharf. Yes it is in the tourist area, but it is at the end near a park. I liked that was across from the cable car station for the Powell-Hyde line. It made it convenient to pop on and get to other locations within the city easily. There is construction outside but we didn't hear any noise during our stay. But something to consider if the messy situation in front of the hotel would brother you. Our room was facing the park. The room was super cute, decorated in a nautical theme. It wasn't huge, but a good size and definitely very comfortable and clean. The hotel definitely has a lot of charm. There are in room spa services which I didn't use, since I prefer to go to a spa. The lobby is on the small size and not a lot of space to just hang out. There is no hotel bar. After a day of sightseeing, the only option is going to the restaurant next to the hotel for a drink or the beer joint in the same Del Monte complex. There is a wine bar too but it isn't very big and it closes early each time. Overnight parking is very expensive at $46.00 a night. It is a pet friendly hotel. This was a problem for my husband who is very allergic to dogs. This hotel was booked for us, so we didn't know this until the night before we arrived. The hotel gave us a pet free room and all was good. There is wine tasting at 5:00 every night. I would skip the wine and go for the beer!
Basically this is a beautifully little hotel, in a great location, with wonderful staff.
It lacks some of the amenities you might find at other larger hotels, but that is the trade off for getting all the charm and cuteness.
