Recent guest reviews

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!

Awesome experience at the Argonaut. Literally across the street from shopping, restaurants, cable car and much more. Staff was very helpful and attentive.

The Argonaut Hotel is located at the corner of Jefferson and Hyde Street, the Hyde-Powell street car turnaround is just up the block and San Francisco Bay is just across the street. The Maritime Park is next door with perfect grassy area and beach to enjoy the day or evening sunsets. Perfect walking distance to the restaurants and shopping in the Fisherman's Wharf area!!

Clean, refreshing, nautical! Not over the top for comfort or anything else. No complaints just nothing extraordinary.

Excellent Hotel and extremely helpful staff. Concierge recommended a harbor cruise that was the highlight of the trip.

Very nice brick building boutique style hotel, wine bar and a restaurant, 4 floors, great doorman, valet park, bellman were all very accommodating! We had a 2ND floor king deluxe room that had a couch which was super comfy to sit and watch the Olympics when we wanted to relax. We could see the bay and the cable car turnaround from our window which opened for fresh air. The Buena vista cafe famous for the best Irish coffee is only 1 block away. Its really close to everything at the wharf and the cable car takes you into the city Perfect location!

Room was small but did have a window view of the buildings next door - some room do not and have an interior bland courtyard type view. No bar on premises - they're stingy will towels (linens). There is a mini bar in room. Bed was very comfortable. Located in a nice safe area of wharf. Valet parking is very expensive so take a taxi from airport to hotel.

Lovely place to stay close to the wharf and the activity. Fresh, clean rooms, wonderful staff.

What a surprise this hotel was! The staff is super friendly, lobby amazing, and the room was incredible. We got a room with a city side view, where we were able to leave the window open pretty much the entire stay. We got to enjoy the live music from the bar below, hear the people, and smell the ocean breeze all from the large bed next to the window. There were two days where we pretty much didn't get out of bed the entire day. I wouldn't waste my time with any other hotel down on the Wharf at this point. I will be coming back soon and often.

Great hotel. Nice bay views. Comfy bed. Excellent location.

This hotel seemed a little expensive when booking however once we got there the realization was that it was worth every penny. The location is perfect and the service was outstanding. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will be coming back for a future visit.

We had a wonderful stay at the Argonaut Hotel! The staff were exceptional and the room was just perfect! Upon arrival, we were upgraded to an bay view room! The team at the Argonaut went beyond expectations to ensure our stay was a memorable one! Thank you!!!

We really enjoyed the hotel and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We were really happy with the location in the center of all the things we wanted to do and close to several modes of transport: cable car, trolleys and Hop On/Hop Off buses. We would be happy to stay there again!

I have been several times to this hjotel and it is given the location and quality my favorite hotel in San Francisco. Last time I had a couple of days a suite and the next days a deluxe king room. Although pricier the suite is far more worth the money than the room. It is in comparison for size and money better. The deluxe room is 24 meters but the lenght is quite long and the width though sufficient comparatively small. The suite is very big and nice. So when able to do so prefer the suite over the room.
