Excellent hôtel, loved the location and would definitely recommend. I wish there had been at least one vegan option on the menu, or that the staff had offered to help with an option (Blue Mermaid).

Very very very bad wifi, why say there is wifi at all? The room I booked and paid for on Expedia had not made it onto the Argonaut web system 20 hours later making check-in more time-consuming. Breakfast venues on a Sunday morning very limited.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this hotel! Six stars! The hotel was cozy and clean with tasteful ship-related decor, a comfortable and well-appointed lobby, and the friendliest staff! The location was perfect- right across from the historic swimming clubs and beach, adjacent to Ghirardelli Square, and close to Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39. The hotel doormen and reception staff were beyond polite, friendly and helpful, as were the waitstaff in the restaurant. We felt so welcome and special. My only suggestion would be for them to have self-serve coffee available in the lobby. I would recommend The Argonaut to all my friends.

After staying at the Argonaut the same week last year we were anxious to get back this year. Disappointed that the menu and service at The Blue Mermaid was nothing like last year. As soon as we got into our room we noted the toilet wouldn't flush- they did send up maintenance but unfortunately the toilet didn't want to flush the entire week- we made it work but it was annoying. Loved the free bottled water at the front desk and stopped by every day to get a bottle to take back to the room. Staff was just as friendly this year as last year and we'll be back again in 2024 due to the location and friendly staff.

Great location. Comfortable accommodations and very clean/quiet. Friendly and efficient staff. Nice view from my room. Not a lot of places to hang out at the hotel and the restaurant closes at 9:00, which was a bummer.
