We loved the location and decor at the Argonaut...great place at a reasonable room rate. Stayed with our children and had an oversized room which was perfect. Blue Mermaid restaurant was also good. Would definitely return here!

The staff was welcoming and knowledgeable. Concierge quickly secured reservations, tickets, and in-room spa services. The room was spacious and clean. The hotel restaurant had great bar and good menu. The best part: the location. No more than a half mile walk to all the sites the Wharf has to offer, including fabulous dining spots, Boudin bakery, the sea lions...

Great location to everything you would want as a tourist in San Francisco. Right next to the cable cars and walking distance to pier 39 and gharidelli square. The bay is right next to the hotel and there are plenty of places to eat nearby. It definitely is not a cheap hotel though. Great feel to the place. Parking is...

Everything about this hotel we thoroughly enjoyed.

The check-in and check-out service was friendly and very efficient and the concierge was very helpful in assisting our needs. The rooms were spacious,...

The beds are super comfortable. Small bathrooms but clean. No vending other than ice but restaurant and bar onsite. Great location near the warf and pier 39. Starbucks and other food places nearby. Pretty pricey valet of roughly $60 per night but most in the area are the same.

Great nautically themed hotel. Great location, at the quieter end of Fishermans wharf area. Room very large, with comfy beds. View from window of Golden Gate Bridge - very cool! Restaurant attached, themed and food was excellent. Helpful staff. Spent 5 nights here over New Years.

Excellent hotel with friendly staff, located nicely to the tourist spots - catch a cable car across the street for example. Really nice perk is a free bike rental, rode up to the GG Bridge, came back, grabbed something to drink at the hotel and then rode the other way down to AT&T park all along the bay. Very nice....
