Still wonderful

Sydney, Australia

This was our second time staying at The Argonaut and definitely won’t be the last. We spent 4 nights in San Francisco and this hotel is just wonderful, as are the staff who work here. We had requested a quiet room and received just that. Our room was clean, beautifully presented and a welcome respite to come home to after being out sightseeing all day. I have to mention Jessie on reception, whose smiling face and wonderful customer service skills are a credit to your hotel. We will certainly be back.

Stayed the night here while sight seeing and enjoying SF, Fisherman’s Wharf area. Loved the ambiance and atmosphere. Rooms are chic and classy, beds super comfortable. Definitely going back on our next trip to the area.
