    Emily is a dream to work with. She can work with your budget to customize what you want. there are a ton of options and the food was yummy. We never felt pushed into anything. She and the staff were very accommodating. It was just a great experience for my Husband and all our guest and families. She has a ton of resources too that can help in planning. We were set up for 90 guest and it ended up being a little less but they could have accommodated many more. The location is great and the rooms are comfortable too for you guest and lots to do and see around the area.

    My husband and I had our beautiful wedding reception at the Argonaut Hotel on 8/3/13. We had 10 months to plan a reception all the way from NYC and it was so simple with the help of Jordan and her amazing team. We could not have done it without her always being available by phone or getting fast responses via email.

    After visiting a couple of places to have our reception, once we saw the Maritime room at the Argonaut we knew it would be perfect for our eighty guest. The natural wood pillars and exposed brick. We fell in love with the steal black door and the location for our out of state guests.

    From the moment we started planning to the big day, Jordan fulfilled every request that I had and followed my set schedule. My wedding planner and Jordan were an exceptional team together, which helped make our wedding reception absolutely magical. Jordan is so sweet and so easy to work with. My husband and I had so many questions leading up to the big day, but we never felt like we were a nuisance.

    After the wedding we headed to the Argonaut Hotel for our reception and everything looked so beautiful! Everything was set where it was supposed to be; there was food and drink waiting for us in the holding area for the wedding party. I had asked for a mirror for my girls to be able to freshen up and it was there. Ever little detail counts and we were very happy. When the servers began to serve the food they were very polite and always had smiles on their faces like our entire guest did. There is nothing worse than ser

    Argonaut Hotel in the Fisherman's Warf, we cannot thank you enough of your kind and unique services. We appreciate you guys so much, from bell boy, bartenders, front desk, room service, and most of the catering department. Jordan, your one in a million and your assistants have been flexible with us, especially since we flew in from Norfolk, VA. I so happy I was able to locate you thru the Knot.com, being that were both in the military and deployed at the time of planning you have been there for us in every detail. We honestly did not know what we were going to expect with so much anticipation and little face time. But my mom and aunts were able to sit on our behalf and they had nothing but positive feedback of you and that put a sense of trust and comfort across the country and overseas. Many of our guests left with complements of the venue and of the memorable night we all shared. I have to include also that I forgot my garter and needed a garter asap for the tossing, and my husband whispered to Jordan and to our surprised her and her crew were able to pull it off and gave us one that they made at the last minute. My mouth dropped, that was services going far and beyond. It meant a lot for us.
    Being united with our family means a lot to us because we are all over the world, and you guys helped make the unity happen. The location was perfect! Thank you again! [tear, tear]
