2004 Awards: Best Newcomer
Shortly after the Argonaut opened early in 2004 the rave reviews began to roll in to us here at HotelChatter.
The reviews were so strong, and this new Kimpton Property sounded so unique, we decided to venture in the Argonaut in June when we found ourselves out west.
Here is what we said back in June:
Exposed brick, dim lighting, campy nautical gear, and yet it all works. This place makes you want to hang out in the Fisherman's wharf area, and that is no small feat.
Though the Argonaut faced some stiff competition, it was the runaway winner as our newcomer of 2004.
