The location if the Argonaut is terrific - right next to the cable cars, directly across the street from the Maritime Park, and in the quieter end of the wharf. The NPS Maritime Visitors Center is on the bottom floor of the hotel.
Our room didn't have much of a view, even though we booked a King Deluxe room. I would hate to see what views the cheaper rooms had, but I suppose you are really paying for the location.
The room was clean and well-appointed. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The water pressure in the shower was great. The bathroom needs a better ventilation system, but that might be difficult in an older building. There was absolutely no street noise, as the windows were very soundproof. The walls in between the rooms weren't as soundproof.
There was a complimentary wine event each evening, which was very crowded and loud.
