In partnership with the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, The Argonaut Hotel, A Noble House Hotel, makes its home in the circa-1907 Haslett Warehouse, next to the historic Cannery building. Decor here is all about a nautical theme -- compasses, sails, rigging and ship wheels. The maritime motif continues in the on-site restaurant, the Blue Mermaid Chowder House & Bar. Many guestrooms also feature views of Fisherman's Wharf and the Golden Gate Bridge.

The Argonaut shares the Haslett Warehouse with the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park's Visitor Center and Interactive Museum, which is dedicated to West Coast maritime history and the story of Fisherman's Wharf. The museum features a Farallon Island lighthouse lens and a shipwrecked boat. The adjacent Hyde Street Pier features a fleet of national historic landmark ships.

Inside the Argonaut, the on-site fitness center (open 24 hours) is complimentary. Spa services ranging from massage to facials and nail work are available in-room. The hotel also offers a hosted evening wine hour featuring local wines in the lobby area, known as the "Living Room."

The Blue Mermaid Chowder House & Bar -- the on-site restaurant -- serves casual fare and a hearty helping of Gold Era ambiance.

Great Room

Wonderful hotel with great mini-suites! A tad on the outskirts of the tourist attractions, but still close enough to take a quick taxi ride to most places. Staff was excellent, professional, helpful, friendly and funny! Great stay, though a bit on the pricey side. Would stay again!

fishermans wharf

This hotel is great for people wishing to visit fisherman's wharf. Great location. $50 per day for parking is a bummer. Don't bring a car here it will be a liability and you wont need it. Elevator is painfully slow. T.V. wasn't working. Lots of strange, high pitched noises coming from the pipes. If you don't pay for a room with a view you get to look out the window at a brick wall. Asked the concierge for jet skis and she just rolled her eyes and stared at me silently.

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.

Great location, fabulous themed hotel!

The hotel is right by everything you would want to see in San Francisco! The nautical theme in the hotel is very fun. The room service was on the pricey side, but the staff were friendly; the fee for overnight valet parking was a steep $50. Unfortunately there's no pool at this hotel. Overall, it was a great place to stay for our anniversary celebration!
