Score from 1291 reviews Very good
Room had a really cleaning supply smell. For the price you would think they would throw in Internet, had to join the Kimpton plan or pay $12.95 a day, a little disappointing.
Brilliant location. Friendly staff. Great city.
Valet parking charges.
The bed was so comfortable and the breakfast in Blue Mermaid was great. Located at one end of Fisherman's Wharf is good for some attractions but quite a hike if booked to see Alcatraz from Pier 33, like we did. Be sure to leave enough time to walk that distance.
It was VERY difficult to reach room service.
Wine at 5
Cost too much for the standard of room.
Excellent staff Excellent location Free bikes Happy Hour Large rooms Very dog friendly.
Breakfast at adjoined cafe. The Decor was designed by Popeye!
I Wes concerned that, due to the location, it might be noisy at night but happily this was not my experience! The room was very quiet and restful!
Breakfast could start after 6:00 am, for early flights travelers.
Good location, good room and facilities
Breakfast extra cost
The decor of the hotel was nautical themed but not in a tacky way, it was elegant. Staff were very welcoming, we got a free upgrade, there were complimentary drinks every evening between 5 and 6pm. It's a 2 minute walk from the cable cars and there's bike hire next door if you want to cycle Golden Gate Bridge
Nothing, it was great.
Ambiance and location
The only hotel that I have stayed in 5 years that did not offer free Wifi to all guests.
excellent location and the wine hour (5pm to 6pm) is a great way to meet other guests from around the world.
We stayed in a great room (354) however the walls are very thin and we could hear the television of the next door tenant till midnight. Aside from this, a great hotel, especially for the location.
Porters and desk staff more than great.
food, presentation, how it was served, and taste below expectation
Loved the location and nautical charm. Loved the wine in the lobby. Room was clean and bright. Walking distance to everything.
Did not like the service in the restaurant, very slow!!! had to ask the waiter over 3 times for a glass of wine. Glad we just ordered appetizers.
Comfortable room, free bike.
No access to ice machine.
Location, room size
Price, breakfast not included
Loved our room, but not prepared to hear the buses outside window so early in morning
The ambience and location are great... the 5pm Happy Hour was a good time to meet fellow travellers. The hotel staff especially the concierge team were brilliant
very limited coffee / dining options. The restaurant is average and expensive
Champagne and chocolates gift for our anniversary, location, concierge service, wine hour, room decor,
The nautical theme of the hotel was fabulous. The wine hour in the lobby was a nice extra. The location was great. We told the hotel it was a kind of honeymoon having just got married in Las Vegas and a congratulatory message and bottle of wine was left for us in the room.
The concierge wasn't particularly helpful - we were asking about the cable car and he said not to bother because of the queues. Although we were told the valet was 24/7 when we text the number to get our car at 5am to go for our Hot Air Balloon ride there was no valet available.
Bike hire at the door, or just walk the water front
convenient location helpful staff with directions etc wine hour
room a little bit small, not much room to move with twin queen beds
Wonderful Character of the place Extras like Happy Hour - free wine and beer Class treatment and service Beautiful accommodation
Location, location, location...just far enough away from Pier 39 to feel removed from the throngs of tourists but close enough to be part of the thrum.
I wish there were a nicer bar. The bartenders and waitstaff at the Blue Mermaid were excellent and attentive but the atmosphere and aesthetics are incongruous to the Argonaut. PLUS only served chardonnay -- a least favorite -- at the hotel evening social hour.
