What a fantastic hotel! We stayed here for 5 nights in November. I booked the Argonaut based on reviews. The hotel is in a great location, has beautiful rooms, a good restaurant and the most helpful staff ever. I would most definitely stay here again and would certainly recommend it to anyone who is travelling to San Francisco. There is daily wine tasting which is great for people watching and chilling out after a hard days sightseeing. The concierge could not do enough for us as we needed to book a car, book tickets to Alcaztraz, etc... Just the most amazing hotel!

My wife and I stayed here for an extended weekend and the hotel was great. The rooms are just like the pictures on the website. Roomy, clean, and quite. The staff was amazing, everyone from the doorman to the maid were friendly and egar to help with any needs. They provided Excellent service!!!

The wine reception at night is a nice bonus.........

The location is fantastic as well. Within steps of all the attractions / restaurants of fisherman's wharf. Within steps to the quite sides of town for non-tourist restaurants. And, Within steps of the trolley for ventures elsewhere.

My honeymoon was the first time visiting San Fransico and I did not know the city well at all. I booked on hotwire not know what hotel I was going to land at but I could not have been more happy with the Argonaut Hotel.

It is in a great location! Right on the strip where you can walk anywhere! ( It might be up a hill but that is life there).

Check in was really easy and the room was great. No fancy view with the great rate I got but it was really clean and a great place to stay.

When we returned from dinner a chilled bottle of champaign waited.

I would definately stay there again!

Great Hotel
Excellent service - we arrived late in the evening and got a room service meal, then ate in the restaurant the next day.
Rooms are a delight.
Would thoroughly recommend

I booked on Hotwire and knew it was the Argonaut before I booked. It matched Trip Advisor amenities, location and number of reviews. The room is exactly as pictured on their website. I loved the nautical theme and the brick wall with a window that opens and has plantation shutters. It is very clean and the terry bathrobes are very warm and cozy. The bed is very comfortable with a nice duvet. The room has a coffee maker, small mini bar- refrigerator, snack basket, safe and free Internet connection in your room. The bathroom amenities are top of the line L’Occitane from France. They also have a list of items available for no charge, toothbrush and paste, fashion tape, fan, humidifier, straightening iron, curling iron, hairdryer, heating pad, sewing kit and extension cord. There is also a list of toiletries for a nominal fee.
I did not encounter any negative attitude from the staff as mentioned in other reviews. The staff was exceptional, very friendly, inviting and helpful. They welcome you back and great you by name, very much like the staff at The Four Seasons. The location is perfect the Hyde street cable car is just across the street as well as The Buena Vista which has casual dinning and it’s famous Irish coffee is across from the cable car stop. Everything at Fisherman Wharf is with in walking distance. I will stay at the Argonaut again. The only negative thing is valet parking is $39 a day. I parked across the street at the park for free.

We stayed at the Argonaut for three nights in mid November as part of a drive down the West Coast. Everything about the hotel was great especially the guest wine tasting every evening. The staff were extremely helpful and very knowledgable about the surrounding area.
We were upgraded to a room with a view of Alcatraz on the first floor, if you get the opportunity ask for a room on the second floor as the view would be even better. The rooms was large well laid out and very clean, loads of room in the bathroom. Rooms are reasonably priced
The hotel has a good restaurant not too exensive and there are loads of eating places along the wharf, give Joe's Crab Shack a try well worth the visit. The cable car terminal is just round the corner.
We had a hire car on our last day and found overnight on street parking easy to find close to the hoteland of course free. Although the streets in the location are not especially steep remember if parking on a hill to "kerb" the front wheels to avoid roll back. Failure to park correctly is a $40 fine.
My wife and I had a great stay and would definately use this hotel again if we go back to San Francisco.

Spent 5 nights at the Argonaut recently and the hotel is great from a location point of view and general comfort of the rooms. The main issue we had was with the front desk staff. We arrived and the room was not ready, with no real apologie (but comp breakfast voucher, which was nice) The front desk staff just seemed to be lacking in customer service, very short and not very welcoming. Having said this the doormen were really good and very helpful.

Apart from this, the Argonaut is really worth considering for your stay in San Francisco. Fishermans Wharf is a great area and I love the city, but watch out for the crazy people of which they have a fair share!

Must do's are the cable cars and Alcatraz and if you have a car a drive over the Golden Gate Bridge (although watch out for the toll lane, I await a fine for going through the fasttrack lane!!)
