Argonaut Hotel at Fishermans Wharf

Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco

The hotel

Perched conveniently on the edge of the bay at Fisherman's Wharf, this nautically inspired boutique hotel has something of the feel of a luxury cruise ship. The Hotel's architecture, complete with original red brick walls and rich wood beams, embodies the rich nautical history of San Francisco in its heyday, while it's plush intricate decor nestles guests into an accommodating, lively environment that's modern and comforting. The lobby is a 'living room' complete with fireplace and working astronomer's clock above the mantel. Other maritime touches include 'deck' floors. Some of the pristine rooms have fantastic views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz.

The smaller bottle of water should be complimentary. Even though we loved everything, we felt like maybe we were sleeping in a gift shop with the option to purchase things like the stuffed animal and/or throw pillow, high priced snacks and liquor, water etc. For those that are traveling with kids, giving them at least one seal complimentary… Read more
The smaller bottle of water should be complimentary. Even though we loved everything, we felt like maybe we were sleeping in a gift shop with the option to purchase things like the stuffed animal and/or throw pillow, high priced snacks and liquor, water etc. For those that are traveling with kids, giving them at least one seal complimentary would be nice as well, and charging for the second would make more sense. The hotel is beautiful, room was very comfortable and location was prime! Read less

The resort fee is a blatant rip off added on top of the booking as you check out. This is not a resort. It is a hotel. The resort fee supposedly covers free wifi and coffee in the room. Just like a motel does. But with a massive resort fee on top!

I like this hotel and the staff. You can walk out and go swimming or for a long walk. The people are nice. But some of the rooms are truly awful. #214 for instance is below ground, people, walking above you, Budweiser truck parked above you to give you a view... All for $400. Moving to Ritz for same price... (Oh and parking is $52)
