Profile: Fisherman's Wharf

Profile: Fisherman's Wharf

Fisherman’s Wharf can be experienced in many ways, with bikes, sailboat charters, and bus tours all available. The waterfront is jammed with souvenir stands, wax museums, and historic ships, and those wanting to escape the bustle can take a boat from Pier 39 to Forbes Island, a floating restaurant that offers fresh Dungeness crab and underwater dining.

Book ahead for a tour of Alcatraz, the world’s most notorious prison, where you’ll sail off to click-clack down the same darkened hallways as Al Capone and “Machine Gun” Kelly. No one ever escaped, officially, but 5 inmates are still mysteriously unaccounted for.

9.0.Superb.
  • 8.0.Very Good

    It was a nice hotel to stay at. Check-in and Check-out were slow due to system faults but overall a nice stay. The TV reception wasn’t great due to the bad weather but I didn’t mind as I was out and about most of the time. The rooms were super clean and the bed was really comfortable. Great location for tourists, did Alcatraz one day and just walked down to the ferry location and stopped into Pier 39 along the way. Also took the scenic walk to the Golden Gate Bridge the next day which took just over an hour. As well as this, they are located right beside the Powell-Hyde cable car line which takes you right into Union Square and is well worth a trip!

    Family’s New Favorite!

    Beautiful hotel, comfortable beds, spent a little more for a room with a view & was definitely worth it! Had a view of the water on one side & Ghirardelli square on the other. The staff was wonderful!! Wish I was better with remembering names because the doorman deserves a shoutout, he was fabulous!!! Perfect location, walked everywhere! Spend the $$ for valet definitely worth it in a city like SF. Whole trip was worth every penny.

    You can HEAR your neighbors, don't book

    TLDR: -VERY THIN walls and floors, noise carries easily, bring ear plugs -Can feel guests (kids) running in the hotel -No 'limited' room service offered (even though it's featured on Hotels.com) -Shutters do not block light into room, bring eye mask My partner and I wanted to book a simple staycation for NYE, but after our one night stay at the Argonaut Hotel, we will not return for any future stay. Structurally, the walls/doors/floors of this building are so old (and/or thin) that noise carries through easily (and you can also hear and feel people running in the hallways/rooms above you). We booked a King-size bed room on the 3rd floor (room 373) and we were extremely surprised that we were in a connecting room where the adjacent room accommodated 4 young women who were obviously getting ready for their NYE excursions. These neighbors were not particularly loud, but their conversations and music from their phones were very audible and unfavorable in our room. The only way to drown them out was to play our TV louder. The worst part was their return at 3am, causing us to wake up from their drunken conversations and additional male guests. Thankfully I brought ear plugs with me but my partner was forced to cover his ears with his pillows. Running out of characters, so all in all: disappointing, would not recommend

    Nice hotel great location, will nickel and dime u

    For a luxury hotel, they sure do nickel and dime you. hotel staff left a small stuff animal in a bag with a tiny sticker stating the $25 cost if open. When you have kids, that's the first thing they do when they enter the room. Bottle water in the room cost money. Cheap 1/2 bottle wine cost money. Valet parking is $65/ a might. You start adding all the "extra" comes out to another $150.
