Hotel is located in the Fishermans Wharf very close to key attractions. Rooms are specious and very comfortable. We had two queens beds to accommodate 4 of us. Great service, great facilities. Our kids loved the breakfast. Great Resturants and activities just outside the door.

We cannot say enough good things about our stay at the Argonaut. The location is fantastic, every staff member was warm and pleasant, and the room was pristine. They were very accommodating with parking, too. And as a bonus for NPS travelers like us...SF Maritime visitor center is in their lobby! Be sure to use your AAA discount, too.

Our family of 4 stayed for Easter weekend and absolutely loved the Argonaut. The hotel is right in Fisherman's wharf and was a perfect location for a weekend of exploring San Francisco. The hotel itself is nautically themed, beautifully maintained and well run. We arrived before noon and our room was already available which was a very pleasant treat. We...

Shelly, What a great review - thank you for giving us 5 stars all-around; we truly appreciate your kind words! You are so right, despite the Argonaut's waterfront location in historic Fisherman's Wharf it's a very peaceful oasis, especially after dark. So close to all the attractions, and yet a world away from the hustle & bustle around Pier 39......

We stayed here for three nights in March 2017. The hotel has a nautical theme - but the more important theme for us was that it was clean and felt safe and seemed well looked after throughout. The location is great - you are right on Fisherman's Wharf but slightly away from the busy part. We found the rooms quiet...

The Argonaut is well positioned on Fishermans Wharf, with large rooms which are new and nicely decorated. The service is excellent.The cleanliness is of a high standard and the staff is very helpful. San Francisco's famous cable car stop is across the road. Breakfasts are great.

I stayed 1 night on a business trip. The location is very good, near Fisherman Wharf and the main tourist attractions on the coast. Room was very large and silent, so that was good for quiet slepping. The service however was just average, as I needed breakfast at 7:00am but nobody was there yet. I had to go out and...
