We stayed here to enjoy a mini-break in Ottawa, and to see the Tulip Festival, the museums, etc. We found an excellent deal with Amex that allowed us to stay free on the third night. We were most surprised that this deal also included a $30 credit PER PERSON for breakfast for all three days, so definitely was worth it.... More

Early check-in, available upgrades, valet service, daily no charge car wash, gym, lounges and all oh soooo clean! Impressed with the service, accommodations, and all the extras. Super convenient access to everything. We'd stay again and again. Ālie, Brian & Dahlia.

Dear Dahlia A, Thank you for your positive feedback and capturing some of the services we offer that make us different from other hotels. We believe if the room is available and the guest has arrived why not provide the guest room at no extra charge. The complimentary car wash is a new initiative that we just launched so I... More

This contemporary hotel is an easy walk to Pariament Hill, the Byward Market, the canal and many more great Ottawa sites. My room was small but had everything I needed with a comfortable bed and nice bedding. The staff were friendly and accommodating. I enjoyed the extra touches like complimentary water in my room, real cream and milk in the... More

The Arc Hotel is the place for get together, easy warm place to meet and party with the girls. Stilettos and Martinis was held in one of the salon, red carpet style! The caterer -delicious-goat cheese mushroom, hot chicken samplers and the cake is heavenly. Don't forget to visit when you are in Canada's capital The Ottawa!!!

I have stayed in just about every hotel in downtown Ottawa over the years and the ARC tops them all. Great rooms, great service, great location. I'd also like to give a shout out to Zachariah (apologies for the spelling) at the front desk - always friendly and always looks after me. If given the choice, I would stay here... More

This is the first time that I've stayed there. What caught my attention right away was the level of attention an care from the staff. They (Joseph) met me at the cab. They carried my bag to the front desk and then the front desk staff took over with the same level of high quality service. It was like that... More

I stayed for a whole week at the Arc, not for the first time. It is always a pleasant and convenient place to stay. Even got an upgrade to a larger room. The staff is very friendly, above average I would say.

We really enjoyed everything about the Arc hotel. From check in to check out everyone was very accommodating. Out room was small but had everything we needed. Linens were great. Enjoyed the bottles of water, chocolates and sparking wine. Very helpful front desk and accommodating housekeeping staff.

Based simply on the room I stayed in, I'd rate this hotel average. My room was very small and looked out at a wall. If I had been staying longer than just the two days, I might have said something especially as now I read it may have been possible to pay a small fee to upgrade. But I've rated... More
