Argonaut Hotel - a Noble House Hotel

"Fabulous hotel in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf"
We had a fabulous stay at the Argonaut Hotel on our recent visit to San Francisco. It is located right in Fisherman's Wharf with quick access to Ghirardelli Square and the cable cars plus all the excitement of the Wharf. It was beautifully decorated and very clean. Although it is right in the middle of all the action, noise was never a problem. The staff was amazing. Josh greeted us at our car and made sure we got checked in good and brought our luggage up. He made sure to find out where we were from and ask us about our home state of Alabama. Levon who works the desk went out of her way to help me print e-tickets for our bus tours which was not part of her job but she wanted to help and could tell that neither of us were very tech savvy. We have already been recommending the hotel to all our friends. It was a great experience!!

"Great hotel with just one glitch"
The hotel and cleaning staff were great. The rooms were spotless. The hotel itself was beautiful. The staff was very friendly. My only problem was with check in. Unfortunately we had to come earlier in the day than expected because we had to leave prior to a hurricane. We showed up at 11 am and asked if we could check our bags until the 3 pm check in. We were offered that none in our amount were ready but for $40 more a night there was 1 ready. After agreeing to this based on the availability it suddenly became not ready yet and they would call us when it was ready. We were not able to go in until the 3 pm check in when we were notified. Beautiful room and view but a little irked at the misrepresentation.

"Historic but not luxury"
Visited during hot spell in San Francisco. Room uncomfortably hot despite ceiling fan and additional fan. There was no AC. Wi-fi required installation of a hot spot in order to work, with re-sign on required each time device turned on. Room was musty smelling. We stayed in Historic King with no view.

"Weekend getaway to SF"
Hotel is beautiful, modern, well equipped and in a great location for so many SF things. Cable car out front, covered area for can pick up, 3 blocks from BART, and with great views from the higher floors. Elevators afforded great Bay views above floor 15 (we were on 19.) Only complaint- we opted for the "green" deal where you don't get service from housekeeping or new linens etc in exchange for points or redeemable coupons. I called down for room coffee service the 2nd day so we'd have coffee when we woke up. They brought coffee only- no cup, sugar, stirrer, creamer etc. next day requested enough supplies to do coffee for let 2 days and listed out cup, lid, etc. Not even close. Had to get at least 5 visits from engineering, housekeeping and bellman to get coffee and coffee based accoutrements. Beyond that- great hotel only next time, no 'green' for me. Fresh linens and coffee daily.

"It was a great hotel but....."
The hotel itself is pretty good, nice rooms/bathrooms, Heather was especially nice, but that's where it ends for us. If you want to do ANYTHING other than shop, don't stay here. While the hotel itself is great, the area is just plain disturbing complete with every possible noise out the window from sirens to homeless people screaming in the night to daily dumpster unloading noises. No sleeping through the night here, period. There is absolutely no possibility that you will find any relaxation of any kind here. If you walk down the street, you will always be looking over your shoulder to see who's right behind you and what they're doing? Riddled with homeless people everywhere, perpetually asking you for money(and argumentative when you don't produce). After staying here, my image of SF has literally been shattered. I won't be going back for anything leisure ever again. Wow, what happened to San Francisco?
