My spouse and I spent a couple nights at the Arc and were happy with our experience, although there are a few things that they could improve. The room was larger than I expected. We were upgraded from a queen to king room, but I still expected a tiny room. Everything was clean and unlike other reviewers, I could not hear my neighbors at all, which was nice because I am a very light sleeper. A noteworthy drawback was the staff service specific to the front desk (the doormen and valet workers were great). Many of the receptionists were not incredibly nice and a couple of them were rather smug. The other issue we had was with the thermostat in our room. It seemed to be out of whack, either too chilly or too hot... Not a terrible incovenience, just a little annoying. Overall, not the best place I've stayed at but a nice/average experience.
