Argonaut Hotel San Francisco, California

bushbaby rating

With what’s widely considered one of the best addresses in San Francisco - on the edge of the city’s famous Bay at Fisherman’s Wharf – and a refined, relaxed atmosphere and service to match we think you will love the boutique style Argonaut Hotel.  Located in the historic Haslett Warehouse, a completely restored grand building constructed in 1907, this establishment oozes nautical charm with exposed brick, wooden floors, Douglas fir beams and tasteful fabrics throughout. The generously sized guestrooms and suites and comfortable communal areas are the perfect place to relax after enjoying all the fantastic activities that San Francisco has to offer. You could even opt for an in room spa treatment or yoga session as you enjoy the postcard perfect view. Children are made super welcome too – and can even have a goldfish delivered to their room!

  • facilities & activities

    The hotel boasts a 1,000 sq ft fitness centre with state-of-the-art equipment plus in-room spa services - we think you’ll love the fantastic range of massage options and body treatments. There are even yoga mats and a yoga TV channel in each accommodation.

    The Argonaut also hosts complimentary evening wine hours in the lobby every day curated by the hotel’s Master Sommelier.

    San Francisco is bursting with activities and is really tourist-friendly to navigate by foot, bicycle, bus or the city’s old-fashioned trolley.

    The city’s choice of restaurants is fabulous – there are 17 Michelin-starred eateries alone. We think you’ll love exploring the nearby waterfront trails leading over the Golden Gate Bridge towards Sausalito, a lovely area to wander around at your leisure.

    Culture vultures will enjoy the city’s vibrant theatre scene and exploring excellent museums and art galleries. Children will love the Steinhart Aquarium. A visit to Alcatraz provides an interesting look at the island’s history through a self-guided audio tour.

    Fisherman’s Wharf itself offers a mix of maritime history and gold rush nostalgia plus fabulous unobstructed views of Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate Bridge. You are just walking distance from fabulous attractions including the shops and restaurants of Ghirardelli Square and Pier 39, the tall ships of Hyde Street Pier and the famous Powell-Hyde Street cable car turn-around.

  • dining

    The hotel’s Blue Mermaid Chowder House & Bar located next door to the hotel itself is a real treat for seafood lovers. We think you’ll love dishes like six types of homemade chowders, steamed mussels and classic cioppino (San Francisco fish stew). The restaurant is open daily and uses produce sourced through sustainable fishery guidelines. You’ll find wonderful wines, microbrewed beer and hand crafted cocktails to match your palate too.

  • family

    The hotel welcomes children of all ages and its central location is great for getting about the city with little ones.  Children are welcomed with a gift and child-sized animal-print bathrobes are available during your stay.  The hotel will even deliver a goldfish to your room to keep children entertained!

    There are some connecting rooms available and children under 17 stay free in existing bedding when accompanying an adult.  In-room child safety kits and cribs are available on request. Accredited babysitting services are available for a fee.

  • location

    The Argonaut hotel’s fantastic central location on Fisherman’s Wharf offers easy access to many of San Francisco’s most iconic attractions and is a wonderfully atmospheric experience in itself offering an authentic taste of the area’s maritime heritage.
