Best place and staff in San Francisco!

Bellingham, Washington

The hotel is charming, fabulous restaurant and location is ideal. Right next to the trolly car station. The very best thing for us....the staff. Peter went above and beyond for my birthday stay. He made sure the room had a nice surprise for us and made sure I was happy. Employees like that are hard to find! Thank you, Peter and the Argonaut for a fabulous vacation and stay. Will be back again.

Quirky and Nice

Houston, Texas

There are dozens of top notch hotels in San Francisco but if you want to be at the Wharf this was a great choice. Our room (double beds, one night) was right over the entrance directly in front of the historic ships and Alcatraz. Surprisingly there wasn't too much street noise. The room was a reasonable size and nicely appointed and decorated, very clean. The bellman was terrific and valet and desk staff were good as well. With so many amazing and famous choices in the neighborhood we didn't eat here. Overall a nice experience in an unusual redone warehouse that works well. Definitely recommend for the location and service.
