Editorial review:

This nautical-themed boutique hotel is in the middle of Fisherman's Wharf. The décor and vibe are praised, the staff is very nice, the rooms are a bit small but they have L'Occitane bath products. There are daily happy hours with wine, free parking for hybrid vehicles, great views of the bay, and a great location only a block away from Ghirardelli.

            10.0

            Loved the decor and design. Thought the wine tasting was a great way to get to know other guests and foster a personable approach. Staff were very helpful and accomodating. The hotel was in a great location and we really enjoyed our meal at the adjoining restaurant.

            Would have liked to have tea bags in the room but we only had to ask and they were provided.

          • Group of friends

            The location was perfect. The decor in the lobby was very classy nautical! Loved it.

            I didn't like the fact that I paid a lot extra for a bay view, but didn't get a bay view. I received a partial side view. I don't feel comfortable complaing after I check in and have to be moved to another room. You should make sure that customers that pay extra actually get a view!!

            Fantastic location, modern decoration, friendly staff

            Valet parking service is so slow. We were waiting for half an hour even if I called from the room.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Great location for some of the best seafood. Also very easy to catch all the local transportation to other areas of San Francisco and a ferry to Sausalito for lunch - no need to drive anywhere. The rooms are very clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable bedding. From the minute we got off of the taxi, starting with the bell men, the staff was very friendly and helpful. We will always stay here in the future and would recommend it to all our friends.

          • Family with children
            9.6

            Great location, clean rooms with a nautical theme and updated bathrooms. The kids loved the free popcicles in the afternoon.

            The rooms were a bit noisy - both from street noise and from other rooms - but this is typical of the area. We called the front desk about the noise from the other rooms and they immediately addressed it.

            Superb location close to harbor, city tour buses, restaurants, shopping etc. Valet parking working fine although expensive (usd 50 per night).

            I got a very small room below ground level so pedestrians were actually looking down into my room.... As far as I figured out the hotel does not have its own breakfast restaurant so I had to use a public restaurant joined with the hotel. Breakfast was very basic and very expensive. Valet parking working fine although expensive (usd 50 per night).

          • Family with children
            7.4

            The room is very clean and welcoming. Good location near the marina.

            This hotel does not have free parking. You can park via valet for extra $60/day, which is excessive. The other paid parking lots were full so we had no choice except going through the valet. That's extra $60/day, folks!!!!

            Absolutely great .prices good, rooms clean, staff very helpful ..location in the middle of all the action.............

            8.2

            My family and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. From check in to checkout the staff were great. Helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. If I ever come back to San Francisco I will definitely consider staying at the Argonaut again.

          • Family with children
            6.6

            The location of this hotel was perfect for the activities we had planned.

            The amenities of the hotel as well as the room design and layout were lacking. For the price, we expected a lot more in terms of comfort and quality. We also felt that we were misled re: price when the final bill came.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            Loved it! Perfect with staff, comfort, location and food. Would recommend it to anyone.
