Editor’s Review of Argonaut Hotel

The luxurious Argonaut is the only hotel located in the San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park, a center for San Francisco maritime history that educates and entertains with a museum, a library and fleets of historic boats. The nautical history of this special place is reflected in the hotel's sunny, boat-themed interior. Built in 1907, the building that houses the Argonaut is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and it also contains the San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park visitor's center and museum. Kids under 17 stay free when accompanied by an adult, and the hotel's Kimpton Kids program accommodates families with little kid-friendly touches like a children's welcome gift.
