I liked this hotel as it had some character with its nautical theme it was also close to everything you could want for sightseeing. Cable car just around the corner and plenty of other tourist buses etc close by. Lots and lots of restaurants which are all pretty touristy and nothing to shout about but they were all reliable enough. We enjoyed a late night Irish coffee at the famous Buena Vista restaurant behind the hotel and if you eat at the Blue Mermaid try the chowder sampler it is great.
We enjoyed the free wine hour each night and by getting there slightly early always got a good seat. We loved meeting other travellers and if the concierge weren't too busy they would come and chat and talk about your day and travels. There a was a lovely girl, I think her name was Olivia ,who had just started working at the Argonaut and who helped us with some tour decisions and spoke of local spots to visit. I would love to stay at the Argonaut again and explore SF some more.
