Though the Argonaut is in a touristy area, it's a great location if you're a runner or want to take advantage of daily bike rides to the Golden Gate Bridge (vouchers provided for free bikes, first come first serve). Beautiful views with some challenging but do-able uphills for your run or bike ride. Also, the Ferry Building is a short...

From my pov after a few stays best hotel for that area. Even if you are (not anymore) into Fisherman´s Wharf you are close to cable car end point which goes directly to city center/union square. Very authentic. Very nice.

Four star, good location. Close by the piers within walking distance to eateries along the strip. Street cars run frequent stops to downtown Union Square for shopping. November is the best time for visit with more deals and tranquillity.

What a way to celebrate my 50th birthday!! If you are going to stay in the Fisherman's wharf area then this hotel is a must !! We were very warmly greeted and the bedroom was tip top. Quite luxurious and very comgirtable. We opened the blinds and had a perfect view of Alcatraz island .... it couldn't be better !!...

Booked the basic room for two night in December 2016. Fisherman's Wharf may not be everyone's preferred location, but 15 minutes (walking) to North Beach, access to the F line, bay views, with great transport links? Can't top that. Hotel is clean and the staff friendly and helpful. My room was huge, but faced the inner courtyard (meaning it looked...

This hotel is in a great location if you are wanting to go to Ghirardelli, Fisherman's Wharf, ride the cable cars, etc. Overnight parking is very expensive ($59) per day. There is no view from the rooms except the room across the roof from you. The floors are very "thin" and you will hear every step or movement from the...

First off, we were greeted by Lavon at the front desk who had an entire conversation with my 8-yr old son before we even got into checking in. They were both so engaged, and my son was gushing with everything we were going to do for his birthday weekend. Lavon was awesome with him, and let him pick some kids...

The hotel is located in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf with lots of tourist but the rooms are very quiet and nicely renovated. We loved the spacious room for San Francisco and we had a partial ocean view, too. Because the parking was more than we wanted to pay, we didn't rent a car while we stayed here. Taxis were...

You could not ask for a better location! The accommodations are phenomenal and the staff very friendly. If you're one who loves the usual big chain hotels/resorts, this will not disappoint! This is now our new go-to when staying in San Francisco.
