"Top hotel at Fisherman's Wharf" -- Time Out

Why We Love It

  • AAA 4-Diamond winner for 10 consecutive years
  • Prime location in Fisherman's Wharf, offering striking views of the bay and Alcatraz
  • Built in 1907, this nautical hotel is on the National Register of Historic Places


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 such as navy and beige accents, porthole-shaped mirrors and nautical trinkets. Bay-view rooms feature postcard-worthy views of Alcatraz or the Golden Gate Bridge.

A Wii system and toy-filled treasure chest will keep the kids entertained in the Living Room (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.

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

We used the hotel lobby restroom and it was a mess. I should have told the front desk but they were busy and we were heading to the airport. They might want to monitor it closer since I assume tourist not even staying at the hotel find it and use it a lot.

Everything! Dropping off our car was easy, check-in was fast and the room was bigger than expected! The bed was very comfortable and everything was clean. We wish we had more down time to spend at the hotel, but we'll just have to make another trip!
