For its classic 1900s architecture, its setting on San Francisco’s atmospheric Fisherman’s Wharf overlooking the famous bay and its innate warehouse character – the Argonaut is a legend.

Built in 1907 and standing on the edge of the Bay, the Argonaut is regarded as one of the iconic San Francisco period hotels. Wander into the reception area and you’ll find seafaring references abound. Wooden plank floors remind you of a ship’s deck. There’s a working astronomer’s clock mounted above the fireplace in the lobby. Original timbers and nautical prints – and glimpses of San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge through the windows – all serve to remind you of the hotel’s historic connection with the ocean.

But its traditions aren’t the only reasons to stay at the Argonaut during your luxury, tailor-made holiday to the USA. The hotel’s unrivalled setting puts you in immediate touch with most of the sightseeing opportunities and sizzling nightlife of San Francisco.
