I hosted a meeting/conference and dinner at the ARC, and many of the guests stayed at the hotel. The service was great, the food excellent, and all of the guests that stayed there were very happy with the rooms and amenities. We would definitely consider the ARC for another meeting and dinner function.

I booked this hotel with some reservations because of mixed reviews on Tripadvisor. Some great and some terrible reports. My stay was without incident. The rooms are on the smaller side - but not the smallest I've stayed in by far! Perfect for one and suitable for 2 - if you are planning a holiday where you actually get out... More

Making the decision to return to Ottawa, we began an on-line search for a Valentine's package that would take care of both lodging and food as... More

We stayed there (my wife and I) for a 1 night weekend getaway and I have to say that we were disappointed with several situations that occurred during our stay... First of all, when we arrived, we were told that our queen size bed room had been upgraded to a king size bed room. When we arrived in our smelly... More

We tremendously enjoyed our stay, a suprise birthday get-away that my husband arranged with the ARC's terrific staff. From the front desk staff to administration to the terrific input by the ARC's Executive Chef, every individual my husband spoke with helped to make our stay a fabulous vacation, making us feel well-cared and pampered. We would definitely return and highly... More

Booked at the hotel due to location. Outside of the building is not very exciting, but once in the lobby and greeted by the staff - it was like an urban oasis. Name a hotel that serves you prosecco and quality chocolates when you arrive - a great experience. Loved the food and the wine menu - offers some great... More

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about ARC The Hotel. The service, the room, the decor, and the extra attention made this stay a most pleasurable one. Very reasonably priced special packages. I have stayed at ARC The Hotel before, and will definitely be back ... I am already looking forward to it!
