“A great place to be in San Francisco”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

We found this a great location and the rooms were excellent. The bed was comfy and the linens and towels were of great quality. The staff were friendly and the doormen were all smiles. The WINE HAPPY HOUR was a pleasant way to end a day of sightseeing. We had a great stay at the Argonaut. I would definitely stay here again. The other couple on the trip were also as pleased as we were. We both had the King Deluxe which gave you an outside view, that was nice.

This hotel was super disappointing through and through. The location is ultra-touristy, which was a mistake on my part as I was traveling for business. The staff were surprisingly cold and unpleasant, which surprised me as Kimpton Hotels usually have great staff. Also, the rooms were pretty awful. Ugly and cold, with this ultra tacky "nautical" design. My room stared straight into a wall. All of this as one of Kimpton's premium members.

Parking is super expensive and pretty slow.

Hello, there, "Ricedish,"

I know that style and fashion are intensely personal and a seaside atmosphere is not for everyone.

What I think ALL of our guests would agree to is that aloof and lackluster service is NEVER acceptable -- to any of us, myself included! Also, who wants to pay San Francisco prices to park their car, only to have to wait more than the standard 15-20 minutes to retrieve it?

We are definitely better than this and are so very sorry to have fallen short here. Thanks for letting us know so we can get to that 100% level of consistency.

The Argonaut is in a perfect location for those wanting to stay near Fisherman's Wharf or the cable cars. The rooms are beautiful, clean, comfortable and freshly remodeled. I would highly recommend it!

Room Tip: Splurge on the king suite with a view!

Kimpton Hotels are usually pretty cool and the Argonaut is no exception. The hotel is situated near the hurley burley of tourist heavy Fisherman's Wharf right across the street from a very nice park. A quick walk gets you to Boudin's for sourdough bread and to the other "interesting" eateries along the wharf. Some, of course, are better than others. At Wharf 39 there is a mall/arcade full of kitchy tourist wares. Alcatraz is right off the wharf. Overall, Argonaut is a great location to start a tour of San Francisco.

Very clean, comfy beds, amongst all the attractions but still quiet, loved this hotel would definitely recommend. Love the nautical decor! Great safe area.
