Absolutely perfect location and within 1 km of all the major downtown sights. The hotel was very clean with a super comfortable bed. Biggest drawback was the lack of soundproofing in the rooms. I clearly could hear the conversation of those in the room beside me as well as their phone ringing through the night.

Always excellent service and well-equipped rooms. Energetic vibe and good food served in the resto-bar. It is a boutique hotel and it flaunts it with a number of simple add-ons - free apples by the elevators anyone? Be forewarned, the elevators are glacial in their speed bt thankfully the hotel is only 8 storeys high...

Dear scottnV8832FS, Thank you for the amazing review. We are thrilled to read about your experience at ARC The.Hotel! The elevators can indeed be slow at times due to the age of our building but also when we reach high levels of occupancy. We are happy to read that this did not prevent you from enjoying your stay with us....

A nice boutique hotel nestled in the downtown area of Ottawa and in close proximity to Parliament and all of what you want to see while in town. Valet parking and very friendly helpful staff from the car jockey to the servers to the room cleaners....always a good sign for any place of hospitality. They have a great lounge for...

This is a nice alternative in the heart of Ottawa. Close to everything, including the National Arts Centre. This small hotel is quiet with attentive staff. Complimentary glass of wine, fruit, bottled water provided.

The hotel is very comfortable with very helpful staff. We had requested a room with an extra armchair and they had put one in the room when we got there. This made the room a bit crowded, but still comfortable. There is a refrigerator but no microwave. If you want to book this hotel, look for deals. We got breakfast...

While traveling with a large group we had 15 - 20 bags get lost by the airlines. The staff went well above and beyond to help in every way. From just asking what else we needed to keeping track of who's bag just got there, to where it needed to end up. Best call ever, " Hi this is Nick...

We stayed at the Arc hotel for one evening following my husband's birthday party, which was also at the Arc in the library. The entire Arc staff provided us with exceptional service and ensured that all of our guests during the party were treated very well and had everything they needed. The food was delicious.
