Argonaut Hotel - a Noble House Hotel

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Had a rental car and cancelled it since this hotel is in the perfect location. Would stay here again.

We had an excellent stay. It is well located, I was able to jogging to the Golden Gate Bridge, the staff was very helpful & I would definitely go again.

Hotel is very convenient to all the sights and you would be hard pressed to find a friendlier staff. We would definitely stay here again!

This hotel made me happy! It is really charming, and the staff was really nice and helpful. If you walk to the left, you can get to nature. If you walk to the right, you get to the touristy piers of Fisherman’s Warf. It’s also far enough at one end that it wasn’t overrun with people once the weekend hit. I was also right next to the cable car stop, so it was easy to get to when we came back from going into the city. I would happily stay here again!

We had a great stay. The room was clean. The staff were all helpful and friendly. The location is great.

Overall, this is a very nice place with excellent staff and nice rooms. All staff from the valet to the maids and everyone in between are superior. They don't mind assisting with anything and always are super nice. The rooms are clean, spacious, and comfortable. I love the buttons by the door that are for privacy or to clean the room. So much better than a paper sign. I did not like that the bathroom did not have a switch for air flow- odor....we are humans. The hotel does have thin walls so keep that in mind. Would stay here again if I ever went back to SF.

Great home base to see SF. We had easy access to the water and the cable cars, so easy to get around. Close to in town beach and great running in the mornings. Staff were very friendly.

The hotel had nice decor, it was clean and the staff, friendly and helpful.

The staff was great. They were very friendly and helpful throughout my stay

Donavan was a GREAT member of your staff. Everyone was very helpful.

Centrally located, great hotel rooms and staff. No complaints . We would stay again

Some of the front office staff were rude and argumentative with me for absolutely no fault of mine. I guess they can be arrogant since it is a popular destination and they don't "really" care about customers. Pros 1] Close to Fisherman's wharf. Cons 1] Extremely expensive hotel - upwards of $250 a night and on top of that you have to pay a ridiculous resort fee of $100 and also they force valet parking(approximately 50 to 60 bucks a night) on you although they don't really have a dedicated spot and just park in the lot behind the hotel. You could also directly park there and pay a lot less. 2] The inside of the hotel is really tiny and the windows don't open to the bay like in the photos. The view is pretty terrible and you will end up never actually opening the shades. 3] The restroom with the attached bath doesn't have a vent fan. So it will get pretty smelly fast and the smell will linger on for a while. 4] Breakfast is not free either. 5] The bed is made of a thick material and set pretty high up. Couldn't fall asleep on it.

The hotel is close to the wharf and restaurants and shops. Cable car station is just around the corner. The building in itself is a historical landmark, beautifully transformed to a hotel. Nice clean rooms treat your self with a wiew of the bay. Professional and friendly staff and a very good restaurant. I can recomend this hotel to anybody going to SF.

The hotel is small but super good situation you can walk and can take any transportation from there.

Hotel was very nice. Cordial help and beautiful rooms. Really enjoyed our stay.

Great location- the hotel could use some sprucing up? The Argonaut is located right on fisherman's wharf. The room seem tired and could definitely use some updating and housekeeping was OK I found trash located near the bed area close to the bedskirt.also they are Skimpy with the towels. They have moisturizing lotion, shampoo, etc in their reusable containerswhich is mounted to the shower. I want to for a more secure an opened bottle that no one has had access to for my toiletry supplies . The staff was very friendly. I feel for the money you can get a better hotel experience

Great location, price and staff. Would definitely stay there again

We loved the location, nice rooms, amenities! The staff is super friendly! I would highly recommend the Argonaut!!!

Great hotel and in a great location. Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean rooms. Would stay here again!

Perfect 5 out of 5! Thank you so much for taking the time to give us a review. The Argonaut is in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf right in the middle of all the local attractions. The cable car turn is next to the hotel, Hyde Pier is just right next to the hotel, and Pier 39 is just steps away. We hope to see you stay with us in the future.

Donna, Thank you so much for the fantastic review! We are super excited to learn your stay was memorable and pleasant. The Argonaut is in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf which places us in the middle of all attractions especially the cable car turn which is right next to the hotel. When you travels bring you back to San Francisco please come visit us again.
