Solo , disabled lady

The the staff was eager to help me with any issues and made my experience such a pleasure.The staff assisted me me with plans for the day, and made necessary reservations as needed. The front desk called for a taxi and kept track of my plans. I know this is not needed by most clients, but insured that the hotel management was aware of my need to clarify information in case I became disoriented. I could call and share information and know that they would arrange for help. I was able to experience San Francisco independently and this turned into a trip of a lifetime.

We were forced to travel home during the pandemic and wanted to do so in style. While calling around different hotels for a “viral deal”...I knew the Argonaut was the place. Not because of the great price but because of the front desk staff that answered. She was amazingly personable and caring. Upon our arrival my wife and I were treated extremely well. Extremely professional staff but with a very added personal touch. We felt like we were all in this together...a sort of compassion towards us as fellow humans. I don’t think our experience is just because of the pandemic. The personality of the staff is a reflection of management...and I have to say “hats off to you all”! If we ever find ourselves back in San Fransisco...we know there is only one place we will ever stay...the Argonaut!
