The Group took over the lease of the 252 room boutique hotel and renovated it. The rent paid to the NPS is used to fund the preservation of its historic ships. Designed to resemble a ship, the public areas of the Argonaut Hotel have wooden plank floors and portholes in the lobby walls adding to the overall nautical atmosphere.
The California Fruit Canners Association built the Haslett Warehouse between 1907 and 1909, a four-story, timber and solid brick structure. After changing hands several times, the Haslett was transferred to the National Park Service in 1978 and was included in the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park when it was established in 1988. The City of San Francisco declared the Haslett Warehouse an historic landmark in 1974 and the building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
