The Argonaut is located directly on the waterfront of Fisherman*s Wharf just steps to the cable car turn-around at Hyde and Jefferson streets. Located in the exposed-brick Haslett warehouse this historic gem delights our guests with its cheery nautical touches found throughout-from the working Astromer clock above the lobby fireplace to the front desk design inspired by a vintage steamer trunk and the tastefully designed over-sized guestrooms and suites. Your clients will enjoy complimentary access to the on-site maritime visitors center - famous San Francisco chowder in the Blue Mermaid Restaurant and the stunning view options of famous San Francisco landmarks-the Golden Gate Bridge - San Francisco bay and more- from our upgraded guestrooms and suites. Bicycle rentals and an ice cream shop on site offer additional amenities at our door.

    Great retaurant, waiters,hostesses and front desk

    Blue mermaid great waiters: JC, karina,Martin, Richard Also Tenzin at front desk was great. Restaurant gave us many options to augment our meals to be just how we want it. Last night on the 17th my husband asked for the same delicous dessert that he had the night before and Richard said the chef will put it together for him and he was thrilled! Thank you for making our stay at the argonaut wonderful!! All best to you all! Randi and Dan Vaughan

    Overall excellent and the friendliness is next level

    Excellent rooms and genuine friendliness you don’t see much of these days. Well run too! Location is obviously good. Decor is A1. Rooms are comfortable. Staff are helpful. Restaurant is OK but the staff there are also very good. This is definitely my new favourite stay in San Francisco.

    Doorman extraordinaire indeed

    John Samuels is the doorman at the Argonaut Hotel, but in fact is more of an ambassador for the property. He knows his craft! His personable nature and his knowledge of the area is a great asset to both the traveler and the establishment. If you ever needed someone to teach a seminar on hospitality, John is your guy.

    Old building converted into a lovely hotel.

    We enjoyed the stay at the property. The only complaint, and it was not enough to lower the rating, is they charge a resort fee -part of which is given back as a food and beverage credit. The rooms are nice, but be sure to get one that faces outward and not in to the courtyard.
