The city of San Francisco has something that’s hard to describe. Tourists love it for its food, views of the water, eclectic mix of people, and its charming history. If you do get a chance to visit, you simply cannot pass up a suite at the Argonaut Hotel located in Fisherman’s Wharf.
The Argonaut is a historic building from 1907 that’s been renovated into a luxurious hotel. The hotel’s rareity lies in the fact that it manages to combine so many items that make up the beauty of the city: It has a great location next door to the city’s famous clam chowder served in sourdough bread bowls, it’s got views of the stunning Golden Gate Bridge, and the property is steeped in old-time charm. Plus, when you walk outside, you are bound to run into at least one man painted in solid gold or silver that’s out to please and entertain the nearby tourists.
The best room to book here is one of the 13 suites, each of which offer 900 square feet of space that include a separate parlor and bedroom, spa tubs, and brass telescopes to enjoy the view. Even better, when you open the gold-and-blue curtains in the morning, you will be staring directly at the Golden Gate and the San Francisco Bay. If you never want to leave your room (who could blame you?), the hotel offers in-room spa services that include facials, massages, and body wraps.
