great location, atmosphere, and value

I was looking for a change of scenery after staying in Union Square for business all week, and while normally I stay away from the more touristy areas near Fisherman's Wharf, the Argonaut was perfect. Close to the best possible route for a run along Marina Green with a view of the Golden Gate bridge, lounging at the park at Fort Mason, sipping Irish Coffee at the Buena Vista, or catching a great meal across the street. The hotel has a lot of personality; rooms are nicely decorated, comfortable and clean, main lobby is a nice place to relax, and staff was very friendly and professional.

First Timers

Overall the hotel is generally nice, but I took the advice of the valet and self parked my car in a garage around the corner only to not have access to my car the next morning when I really needed it. Big Problem. Location is convenient to the tourist traps i.e. Fisherman's Wharf and junk stores but easy to hop on the trolley and see the rest of what San Francisco has to offer.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Dont buy the all day pass for the trolley unless you have a real plan of utilizing, just buy the one way ticket.
