Fodor's Expert Review Argonaut Hotel

495 Jefferson St., at Hyde St., San Francisco, California, 94109, USA Fodor's Choice

The nautically themed Argonaut's spacious guest rooms 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 Alcatraz and Golden Gate Bridge views. Anchors, ropes, compasses, and a row of cruise-ship deck chairs fill the lobby. The building is part of the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, whose visitor center occupies the ground floor.
