Stayed in a Specialty suite for three nights in May. These rooms have great views of both the bridge and the bay and are extremely spacious (separate lounge/dining area). Nice bathrooms. Decorated in line with the overall nautical feel. Good beds but sleep quality might be improved by a choice of pillow type.
The staff were helpful and provided good service. The location of the hotel is great - just out of the wharf craziness but right next to it, close to the cablecar. There is an Avis and Hertz just along the street if you are doing a fly drive and are looking to head out, and there is a Starbucks at the back of the hotel. The afternoon wine social was nice (though thought they might have managed some Californian wine - it was Chilean!).
I wouldn't rate the attached Blue Mermaid - just par for the Wharf area (which isn't that great) but the Argonaut is a great base to head out to lots of better ones (e.g. Gary Danko is just up the street).
Overall a great stay, and glad we stayed here rather than in the city centre. Book a specialty suite if it's in your budget.
