All the rooms are decorated in a nautical theme, the bed is very comfortable and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are close together so sound proofing isn't 100%.

Second time here and every bit as good. Lovely rooms, good ambience and great staff. Excellent location with wharves outside the door and tram to Union Square just round the corner.

Great Location

Great Location, the problem with the hotel is the resort fee. It's there way of getting extra money for the room and they say it for the wi-fi etc. They need new pillows and a kettle in the room.

Thank you so much for the raving review and for giving us a perfect score. The Argonaut is definitely in the middle of all local attractions on the waterfront. The cable car turn is next to the hotel, Ghirardelli Square is a block away, Lombard Street is two blocks away, Hyde Street Pier is across the street, and Pier 39 is just a walk away just to name a few. We hope to see you visit us again soon.

Nice hotel, great location opp wharves

Pros: Great location close to wharves and great walks.
Cons: Price premium, but then everywhere was expensive the weekend I stayed.
Location: A short walk to Pier 39. I had an excellent lunch at Fog Harbor Restaurant.
I really wanted a hotel away from the city center and homelessness problem. The Argonaut could not be in a better location. It is central to everything and right near a lovely beach. Great walks in every direction. Hotel room was excellent even though I only had a courtyard view, but this didn't bother me. Bed was super comfortable. Lobby amenity was terrific and hotel food very good. Staff super friendly and helpful. I can be a bit of a princess when it comes to hotel rooms but this one passed the test!
