Mix Business And Pleasure At San Francisco's Argonaut Hotel

Is the pressure on to create a buttoned-down business meeting or splashy special event? Not to worry. Just consider our gorgeous waterfront setting and the exclusive ambiance of our historic property part of your portfolio.

And it goes without saying that whatever your plans, you will have the attentive support of our professional staff. Whether it's room set-ups, catering or A/V equipment, we get the big picture: make you the star and your event an unqualified success.

Business Meetings

Quite simply, if you have a function to plan, we have the right event room. Whether you're planning a roll-up-the-sleeves business roundtable or a grand soiree for 500 guests, the Argonaut has a room solution. Our five flexible meeting rooms total nearly 9,000 square feet of space and include the largest ballroom on Fisherman's Wharf, a wonder of exposed brick and massive Douglas Fir beams. And while we can accommodate even the largest functions, our multiple configurations mean we can help you plan your smaller event exactly to your specifications too. We also go overboard on helping you imagine unique spaces, and can help you set-up your meeting aboard the tall ship Balclutha or the Maritime Museum, both in the adjacent SF Maritime National Historic Park. And when you consider what else we bring to the table: Four Diamond service, hotel-wide WiFi, and state of the art audio/video components and support, it's obvious the Argonaut is your first choice for the perfect function.

  • Conference Setup- Up to 30 people
