ON THE WATERFRONT
If staying around the Fisherman’s Wharf area of San Francisco makes you think been there, done that, sample the stylish Kimpton Group’s latest lodging, the ARGONAUT HOTEL. Fashioned from a 1907 vintage warehouse, the 252-roomer goes nautical with plank floors, porthole mirrors, and captain’s chairs — plus views of the Golden Gate Bridge. More location incentives: an in-house chowder house, the SF Maritime National Historical Park Visitors Center on the ground level, and the cable car turnaround just across the street. From $199.
