A number of little disappointments made this stay one to forget. Check in took about 15 minutes, but the guests in front of me had a reservation issue so that is understandable. It would have been nice to get some form of recognition from the staff when i arrived. I felt invisible when I walked in there and stood there... More

I stayed at Arc the Hotel for five days over the recent Canada Day weekend with my boyfriend. I was very impressed with this hotel. Yes, it's not huge - it's a boutique hotel. The bathroom was small, and so was the room - but the closet in my room was certainly adequate - about 4' wide. The bathroom was... More

Be aware the rooms are very very small. Closet is perhaps 12 inches wide. You cannot put your suitcase in it b/c there is a safe or something taking up the space. The necessity of leaving suitcases in the middle of the floor resulted in slamming into the wall after triping over the suitcase in the dark when getting up... More

Upon arrival we were not greeted, the FD receptionist was totally unfriendly and not knowledgeable. Our rate was wrong - different from the confirmation number, and when questioned he blamed it on tax law changes?! We got to the room on a low floor, and had an amazing view of a wall, and the building next door's loading dock. Needless... More

I stayed at the hotel for a week in May 2010 for a business trip. It is a boutique hotel with spacious rooms which are decorated nicely but a bid too dark for my liking. Everything was spotlessly clean, the bed was very comfortable and I liked the fact that the hotel has a small gym which guests are free... More

Dear Tobias_CT, Thank you for sharing so much detail about ARC The.HOtel and the surrounding area! You are correct on the construction of the future EDC building, although I am happy to advise that the windows and walls are almost completely up and we anticipate very little noise affect going forward.

I've been to a fair number of nice boutique hotels, and I would say the Arc is very modern/contemporary and very nice to look at. The service great, the location good for Ottawa (Ottawa is nice but not the most happening place out there). I stayed for one night in June 2009. Room was very nice and modern, but I... More

The Friendly staff welcomed us with a glass of sparkling wine when we arrived at the Arc for our stay. The inviting smell of the lobby coupled with the friendly service, glass of bubbly and delighful chocolates made for a refreshing arrival after a very long drive. Our room was clean, decorated nicely and beds were very enjoyable with the... More
