Historic location meets comfort, great value, and sweeping San Francisco Bay views at this Condé Nast Traveler “Top Hotels in San Francisco” Readers’ Choice winner, and TripAdvisor GreenLeader Gold level hotel.
Overlooking San Francisco's most iconic vista, the Argonaut Hotel effortlessly captures the atmospheric, nay filmic, feel of Fisherman's Wharf. The hotel is set in a former cannery warehouse, and its crisp, contemporary design details—we’re talking exposed brick walls, subtle nautical theme, white wooden blinds—do justice to its history and setting.
Rooms and service are everything you'd expect from 4 Diamond Award winner 17 years running. There's a fitness center on site, and a vibrant indoor-outdoor restaurant, The Blue Mermaid. The location is, of course, ideal for sightseeing by foot, but the big win is the breathtaking view of Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate Bridge.
Fisherman’s Wharf has more to offer than views and harbor seals—much that even locals don’t know about. Hidden in a nondescript warehouse on the water is Musée Méchanique, an antique penny arcade. Its interactive nickelodeons are pieces of history that show up parts of SF it may well want forgotten. Nearby is Boudin Bakery, where you can take a factory tour to watch the making of some of the best sourdough in the world. Buy it warm and fragrant, and go find some clam chowder to dip it in (the hotel, perhaps). Take a pew at the waterfront, and if it’s not too foggy, that big red suspension bridge won’t fail to impress.
