The Argonaut Hotel San Francisco is an exciting boutique hotel located in a historical building that also houses The Cannery, a collection of shops and dining in a unique vintage setting. This nautical-themed waterfront hotel reflects the maritime history of San Francisco in an intimate 1907 building. Enjoy the beauty of the nearby San Francisco Bay and it's treasures like nearby Ghirardelli Square and Pier 39.

Location
Located on Fisherman's Wharf, just steps from the cable car turnaround, the Argonaut Hotel occupies space in the San Francisco Marina Historical Park. The San Francisco Visitor's Centre is in the same building and cable cars heading to Union Square and downtown San Francisco are steps away.

Rooms
Guestrooms at the Argonaut feature authentic flourishes like exposed brick walls and brass telescopes. Magnificent views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the city are offered from some rooms. Guests are treated to luxury appointments like wireless Internet, Aveda bath products and in-room Starbucks coffee.

Restaurant
Blue Mermaid Chow House and Bar, the Argonaut's eatery, serves classic fare in an atmosphere reminiscent of the California Gold Rush era. Enjoy casual meals, wine and coffee indoors or al fresco.

General
Guests will enjoy close proximity to ferries to Alcatraz and fine shopping in the nearby Marina District.

Argonaut A Kimpton Hotel San Francisco
4 out of 5

Well I love Kimpton hotels, don't get me wrong here, just after staying at the Ink48 and Eventi in New York I was looking for a bit more, US48.00 a day for car parking was a little more than I was expecting? Still free WiFi and wine hour helps take a bit of the sting out of that I guess? Rooms rather small, you better llike ship theme and blue or don't stay here, very much a portside hotel in location and theme. Staff not of the same high standard as I am used to getting at a Kimpton hotel, although still better than most hotels these days. Location at Fishmans warlf really good if yo uare on vacation and looking for a tourist based location.

Hotel is in a great location, close to lots of restaurants and shops. Staff were very friendly, especially the valets. The facilities were very clean and looked great. It was a nice touch having the fire going in the lobby when you camw in from the cold outside. The only issue was that the walls were paper thin. We could hear conversations people were having in the next room.

We recently stayed at the Argonaut on our stay in SF. We were travelling from Austrlaia to Dallas onto the Caribbean and then to Vegas and SF. This is the BEST accomodation of our trip! The staff starting with the bell hop were animated, friendly and extremely helpful. To the point of phone calls on the first night and the second last night to check if everything was ok!! The rooms were cute, clean, very comfortable and decorated beautifully to the theme. The beds were amazing and the rooms were quiet. The restaraunt was gorgeous and the food amazing (especially the chowder). And the hot chocolate and wine tasting in the afternoons topped it all off. And all within walking distance to the pier.

Everything was fantastic, only change we would say is the hallway wallpaper is a let down, a pale yellow would just make it perfect!

The hotel is within walking distance of all the tourist locations. We walked to Boudin, and Ghiradelli Square. We enjoyed Tiernan's Irish Pub just one block from our door. Tha hotel was delightful, wonderful Hot Toddys. The only drawback was the $61 dollars to park our vehicle for one night.

It's a Kimpton, which means it's post-modern and fun. Great location almost directly across from Fisherman's wharf. We had a long, narrow deluxe room with bricks on the wall, a tiny bathroom and a nautical theme throughout. But when we wanted to have a drink on the restaurant/bar patio at 4 pm, when there were 3 empty tables for two, we were asked to go inside since diners might want the table. That was a first for us! And when we pulled up to check in, the doorman never came to our car until we got out and said "we're checking in". And all this for almost $500 a night?

Excelent service at the hotel. Very clean, well managed property. Great location for anyone looking to spend time at Fisherman's Wharf. Very north end at Hyde Street. The only downside was the size of the room. Although very nicely appointed, the room was surprisingly small - difficult to get a suitcase past the emd of the bed and the wall.

It was a great experience staying at the Argonaut Hotel. The room was spacious and very clean, and I could not fault the service. The only negative was a lack of laundry facilities. The nearest laundry was approximatley 8 hilly blocks away!
