Great and convenient place to stay. Service excellent. Food ok. Decided to eat elsewhere while staying here. Found a great place to eat not far away!. One and only problem is: the walls are very thin.

Very nice hotel, beds were comfortable, room was clean and service was great. Very much enjoyed our stay at this place. Did not try breakfast but coffee maker available in the room. Location is also pretty great if you are in San Francisco for a few days.

Stayed here for one night whilst in transit arriving late evening and departing early morning and so this review may not be a fair reflection on this hotel. It’s a nice hotel with well-appointed rooms but I am unsure about the location. Fisherman’s Wharf can be a little bit scruffy looking during the day and a single person may feel...

Frequentravellers16, Thank you for your review! Fabled Fisherman's Wharf is one mile long but stretches back decades into the most colorful years of San Francisco's history. The iconic site not only was a witness to the days of tall ships, Barbary Coast roustabouts and Gold Rush fever, it was the central player. Today, it's still the number one attraction for...

We spent 3 nights in SF and decided to stay at Fishermans Wharf directly, which was a good decision. All possible attractions near by could be reached by foot. The Hotel itself is first class, no doubt about all services provided. We enjoyed our stay there very much and can highly recommend this location / hotel.

We were in and out of San Francisco within a 24-hour time frame. During this short period, we stayed at the Argonaut Hotel at Fisherman’s Wharf. We had a bay view suite, which was a little pricey but, we loved it. The room had a great view of Alcatraz and the main street at Fisherman’s Wharf. To be honest, it...

We stayed her on a Pacific Coast Highway holiday with friends... Great location. In the main tourist trap but you won't feel that way when you enter. Great sized rooms and attentive staff... You must hire bikes here and travel over the Golden Gate and have lunch in Sausalito ...

DGKnowles, We'd like to thank you for your wonderful review. San Francisco was once the epicenter of prospecting and immigration to California during the heart of the Gold Rush. That spirit is alive and well today, especially in historic Fisherman's Wharf, our home and one of San Francisco's most iconic neighborhoods. The Argonaut's location indeed makes it easy to explore...

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights in March and it was wonderful.

Great hotel in a great location.

I have visited Fishermans Wharf before, around 7 years ago. This time I returned with my wife and decided to stay in the same area again.
