Set amid 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 century-old Haslett Warehouse (on the National Register of Historic Places), Douglas fir beams, exposed red brick walls and playful nautical details speak to the neighborhood’s eclectic mashup of seafaring past and contemporary carnival-like feel. Dressed in sailors' best outfits, the staff greet guests with friendly smiles and helpful advice. 

Spacious guest rooms boast whimsical maritime décor with navy and beige accents, porthole-shaped mirrors and nautical trinkets. Bay-view rooms feature postcard-worthy views of Alcatraz or the Golden Gate Bridge.

An Xbox One console, board games and a toy-filled treasure chest will keep the kids entertained in the lobby (complete with a fully functioning astronomer's clock). Pets of all sizes are welcomed like royalty (check the chalkboard for your four-legged friend's name on arrival) with fluffy dog beds, treats and toys (pet fees apply).

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 to see some of SF’s iconic sites; the tall ships at Hyde Street Pier, Ghirardelli Square and Pier 39 are all less than a 10-minute walk from the property.
