We chose the Argonaut because we wanted to be at a location with easy access to the highlights of SF. And, you'll never run out of ideas on things to do & see when the Argonaut's bellman, John is at your service. The Argonaut is just a short walk to Fisherman's wharf & Pier 39, and steps away from the beginning of the Powell-Hyde cable car line. If you're looking for the "birthplace of the Irish coffee", the Buena Vista is right around the corner. And, if you want the best sea salt carmel sundae in SF, Ghiardelli square is just up the hill. The accomodations were spacious & quiet, and the nautical themed room had a stunning view of both the cable cars & the Golden Gate. The onsite restaurant, The Blue Mermaid had excellent food, but unfortunately didn't offer rooms service during our stay. Overall, if you're looking to stay at a hotel full of charm & character at a decent value, this is the place. We're already looking forward to our next stay!

Great Warf area hotel. Upgrade to a bay view room, it will make it more pricey but a beautiful view of the Bay and Alcatraz on a sunny. Can walk to most piers or just jump on a Trolley to get around town.

jameswilkie2020, Thank you for taking the time to share your wonderful comments on Tripadvisor. We absolutely agree, choose a Bay View accommodation and discover the best of the city: San Francisco’s most stunning views, prime location on the Bay, and direct access to national parks. With generously sized guest rooms and suites, our custom touches include original timbers and nautical print fabrics - a truly unique experience! Our Argonaut team is looking forward to your next visit. Cheers! Stefan Mühle Area Managing Director

My wife and I planned our getaway for our 20th Anniversary before knowing about Fleet Week. We chose this hotel for it’s location and view, ease of access to several precooked tours (Love Tour and Napa/Sonoma Winery Tours). With Fleet Week (first in two years and only one nationwide this year), the crowds, the road closures, and San Francisco’s notorious lack of parking would have made the trip horrendous. The historic trolleys are right next to the hotel allowing access to Chinatown, Lombard Street, and Union Square. Despite assurances there would be no parties and having checkpoints comin in and out of the hotel due to Fleet Week, noise does travel easily from adjoining rooms.

Josh, We'd like to thank you for giving the Argonaut Hotel 5 stars on Tripadvisor. Fleet Week is always a special treat, especially on the Friday through Sunday weekend when thousands of visitors from near and afar descend upon the Wharf, quite literally surrounding our property and creating an electric atmosphere for 3 straight afternoons. This year was no exception, and we are delighted you enjoyed this special occasion! As we are heading out of season and into the Holidays, it will be much quieter - so if you are looking to plan another visit to San Francisco, let us know. It would be our pleasure to assist. Be well and stay safe, Stefan Műhle Area Managing Director
