Argonaut Hotel

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

The 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. 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—the four-story Haslett Warehouse was once a fruit-and-vegetable canning complex where boats docked up against the 1909 structure—and its present, as it's now part of the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, whose visitor center occupies the ground floor.
