Very convenient to Fishermans wharf and the piers to Alcatraz the staff were very helpful and able to provide passes for the city bus tour which was great. I'm very particular about how clean the rooms are in a hotel and this one passed the test. The only negative is the nautical theme gets to be a little much but...

I was on business here and flew my wife down for the weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The staff was amazing and accommodated every need we had (wine, flowers, etc). The location was great and we had a view of the Golden Gate bridge from our room. It was very memorable. The rooms were quiet, nautical in decor. We...

Noble House has never disappointed me with their nautical decor, oversized room, comfy beds, good location, and accommodating staff. Only thing was it being San Fran, the price of parking was $60 I think. I don't remember exact price because I parked one and a half blocks away for $22!! It being Fisherman Wharf and there during the early weekday,...

A super hotel with the perfect San Fran location. This was our first stop over after the gruelling 12 hour fight from heathrow, and it was the perfect place for us. You step off the busy harbour road into a quiet and spaceous lobby, with its own museum. The staff were really helpful offering us cool drinks and a comfortable...

Recently stayed in January 17 and loved every aspect of this Hotel, Bar & Restaurant. From the moment you are welcomed and assisted on the pavement outside, to the moment you (sadly) have to leave, nothing could be better. Fantastic breakfasts with plenty of choice and delicious evening dinner menu- I recommend the Clam Chowder served in the bread bowl!!!...

The Argonaut is a gorgeous hotel built in the old Del Monte Cannery. The rooms are beautiful with very comfortable beds. Top notch hotel. Just don't go to the Blue Mermaid Chowder House at the hotel. The service is terrible. I planned a birthday dinner for my wife and the waiter could not have made the occasion LESS special. Just...

MafiaElvis, We'd like to thank you for giving us a 5 star review despite your experience at the Blue Mermaid. The Argonaut is indeed, as you mention, a top notch hotel, and to read that your wife's birthday dinner lacked the stellar service for which our property is known, is disappointing.

This is a lovely hotel in an unbeatable location. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Hotel is very clean, has great staff, and its location is unlike anything else you will find but for the price I was not impressed by the rooms. I stayed there for my honeymoon and the staff was very nice, welcoming, and accommodating. The concierge was the best I have ever talked with.
