Argonaut Hotel

495 Jefferson St., at Hyde St., San Francisco, California, 94109, USA

These spacious guest rooms, many with a sofa bed in the sitting areas, have exposed-brick walls, wood-beam ceilings, and best of all, windows that open to the sea air and the sounds of the waterfront; many rooms enjoy views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. Suites come with extra-deep whirlpool tubs and telescopes for close-up looks at passing ships. Anchors, ropes, compasses, and a row of cruise-ship deck chairs fill the lobby. The nautical aesthetic suits the building's past, when the four-story Haslett Warehouse was a fruit-and-vegetable canning complex and boats docked right up against the 1909 structure, and its current use as well: the Argonaut is part of the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, whose visitor center occupies the ground floor.
