4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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!

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.
