Great spot

Nice staff, neat location, great room. Blue Mermaid is a fairly priced restaurant with standard but good fare. The building itself is neat, the former Del Monte cannery and over 100 years old. The easiest access to Fishermans Wharf. Again good spot.

Disappointing

Good location, but unfortunately it is currently in the middle of a construction zone making parking and access very difficult. Valet service took from 30 minutes to over an hour to retreive car each time. Price for this "prompt" service is $46 per day. The staff was friendly, but there was just not enough of them to keep things moving. The hotel is unique and the rooms are clean, but just not what I have come to expect from a Kimpton property.

The Argonaut

Very nice hotel in a great location near the water. All the Kimpton features very friendly helpful staff. Not close to central SF shopping but all the touristy Fisherman's wharf stuff is close.

Excellence on the Bay

An excellent value steps away from the cable car service and the buzz of the wharf district. Traveled daily to Union Square via bus and cable car...25 minutes away +-. Staff is professional and the hotel itself is warm and modern.
