Recently stayed 2 nights at Arc. I was in Ottawa on business so the location was terrific for getting to where I had to be but also gave me the opportunity to wander around the Parliament Buildings, the Rideau Canal as well as parks with the typical Capital City statues. Very comfy bed but what I truly appreciated was the... More

Absolutely the WORST HOTEL!!!!!! I called the hotel directly to book the romantic suite for our wedding night. Our room was given to another guest and we were charged the full fee of $250. I am so disappointed with the poor service we received, we could of stayed at the Chateau Laurier for the same price. DO NOT STAY AT... More

We had a great time and chatted with the bartender like he was our buddy. The receptionist was extremely helpful and spunky! The staff were great. The room was very clean and served us right. Overall fantastic stay for a reasonable price. Highly recommend the hotel.

Great place! But the bathroom was most difficult to use: no support bars/assists to get in and out of the "romantic" tub with a bad leg. Usually I have no difficulty but your setup was hopeless. The staff were cordial and helpful. Valet parking was excellent. Breakfast was very good. Drinks and cheese-board were excellent. Real cream for coffee was... More

Stayed here during a huge academic conference (not many choices re: accommodations in Ottawa!) and was pleasantly surprised! Didn't feel like Ottawa at all - hotel reminds me of a boutique hotel in Manhattan. A bit pricey, but I can't say it's not worth the cost (aside from, maybe, parking?).

The accomodations were nice, and the staff was relatively friendly. Unfortunately I left an item at the front desk ($200 item, literally in front of the front desk) and had forgotten about the item for about a full day. When I asked if anyone had seen it or turned it in I was sad to be informed it had not... More

Part of our Canada honeymoon trip, spent 1 night with ARC and it's a wonderful experience. The hotel located at the CBD which just few blocks away from Parliament Hill. The 3 major coffee chains just right at the corner so it's very convenience. We've arrived early that day and the staff at front desk was really helpful to get... More

I really enjoyed our two night stay at L 'Arc hotel. The rooms aren't large but are tastefully modern. A very comfortable bed, free WiFi, and a complimentary glass of wine each, were highlights for us. The staff were friendly and helpful. We would definitely come back.

We went to Ottawa to see an exhibit at the National Art Gallery. We got an excellent package at the Arc hotel that included ticket to National art Gallery, parking, a glass of wine and breakfast. Everything was great. The location was near Parliament Buildings, the Art Gallery and Byward market. The valet parking was right in front of hotel.... More

My wife and I enjoy going to the Arc to have a little staycation from time to time. It's too expensive to do it too often, but we also get one of the better rooms when we decide to stay there. Staff are extremely friendly and will bend over backwards to make sure you have a great stay. Room is... More
