More Room Types

Set amidst the sunbathing sea lions in action-packed Fisherman’s Wharf, the AAA 4-Diamond Argonaut Hotel feels a bit like boarding a luxury cruise ship back in time. Housed in the historic Haslett Warehouse (on the National Register of Historic Places), Douglas fir beams, exposed red brick walls and playful nautical details speak to the neighbourhood's eclectic mash-up of its seafaring past and current carnival-like feel. Dressed in sailor outfits, the staff greet guests with friendly smiles and helpful advice. 

Spacious guest rooms mix quirky extras like complimentary yoga mats and animal-print bathrobes with whimsical maritime décor: navy and beige accents, porthole-shaped mirrors and nautical trinkets. Bay-view rooms feature postcard-worthy views of Alcatraz or the Golden Gate Bridge.

There is a nightly wine hour in the Living Room (complete with a fully functioning astronomer’s clock), and the Wii system and toy-filled treasure chest will keep the kids entertained. Pets of all sizes are welcomed like royalty (check the blackboard for your four-legged friend's name on arrival) with fluffy dog beds, treats and toys.

Head to the Blue Mermaid Chowder House & Bar -- home to an award-winning dungeness crab and corn chowder-- for an authentic San Francisco bite then stroll in any direction for some of SF’s biggest sites; the tall ships at Hyde Street Pier, Ghirardelli Square and Pier 39 are all less than a 10-minute walk.

From the press:
  • “If you want to stay in a beautiful, historic building and walk right out your door into the heart Fisherman’s Wharf action—and are willing to pay for the privilege—this nautical-themed hotel is perfect for you” -- Frommer’s 
  • “The top hotel at Fisherman's Wharf occupies a behemoth former Del Monte cannery, built in 1908 of giant timbers and red brick salvaged from the 1906 earthquake” -- Time Out
