Gene, We'd like to thank you for your kind words about that Argonaut's waterfront location and its unique design. Most of all, though, we appreciate you taking the time to point out our team member's dedication to service and hospitality.

Love, love, love this property -- very convenient to San Francisco highlights / activities, food, shopping, etc. It's great that the property has so much history, and in saving it, the build-outs were done with respect. I can still imagine the place as a fishery packing place, with the "old salt" of San Francisco's waterfront -- and it's such a...

My friends and I chose to stay at the Argonaut while in SF for a short two-day trip. What a pleasant surprise! The hotel was conveniently located at Fisherman's Wharf, just a short walk from the Pier and other touristic attractions. The room was clean, spacious, and thematically decorated. Also, the staff was friendly and attentive, kindly helping us extend...

We stayed at the Argonaut for three nights this March. The hotel is conveniently located in Fisherman's Wharf near many restaurants, bike hire, ferries (including Alcatraz) and tourist bus stops. The rooms are large and very comfortable although ours did have a noisy fan running all of the time which was annoying at first. The staff are helpful but the...

Great location on Fisherman's Wharf. Many nice restaurants and pubs nearby and pleasant 10 minute walk to Pier 39 and Alcatraz ferry. Really nice room with nautical theme and looked exactly like the website pictures. We ate in the restaurant on a couple of occasions and food was very good and attentive staff. We would certainly return.

Lauren, The Argonaut is truly one-of-a-kind, and we love to read that you enjoyed our unique design elements such as a working astronomer's clock above the lobby fireplace, a front desk inspired by a vintage steamer trunk, and exposed brick walls and rough-hewn wooden plank floors that speak volumes about the history of the century-old Haslett Building.
