U.S. News Review

Guests of this hotel in Fisherman's Wharf will feel as if they've just stepped aboard a cruise ship, even though the Argonaut sits firmly on solid ground. Guest rooms which are decked out with nautical artifacts like compasses and sand dollars offer spectacular views of San Francisco Bay. (Just note that these vistas don't come cheap, according to some travelers.) Meanwhile, common areas like the lobby and the in-house seafood restaurant, Blue Mermaid, feature all the trademarks of a Kimpton Hotel: bright, flashy colors and fun, quirky furnishings. Visitors especially appreciate the perks associated with the Kimpton brand, including complimentary wine receptions in the evenings and a friendly service staff. Plus, guests can redeem perks such free stays or complimentary Wi-Fi through the Kimpton Karma program.
