We were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived at this hotel. We found it first try which is always nice when dealing with one way streets and fearing having to do another lap. Our checkin was great. Howie has an awesome sense of humour. Our room was good. Unfortunately there was construction outside on the Laurier side, (our side) so... More

Spent a couple of days at the ARC after our wedding. The majestic king room was perfect for us with complimentary champagne and chocolate. The staff were very courteous at the front desk and at the lounge. The breakfast in bed was fantastic and from what our family told us, the food at the restaurant was delicious as well. It... More

We stayed at ARC the Hotel for New Years Eve 2010 and we were very, very pleased. Hoping not only to ring in the new year here we were planning and doing some site seeing. Lucky for us it is just moments away from The Parliament of Canada, War and Civilization Museums and much more. Upon arrival the staff instantly... More

We recently held a working dinner in the Library, a private room at ARC The.Hotel. All was as hoped for; a very enjoyable -- but still very productive from a working perspective -- evening. The meal was outstanding and the service very responsive and well synchronized with out meeting programme. High compliments as well for the chief server and fellow... More

Stayed there as part of a wedding. Place was pretty swanky, room was very comfortable, staff were very helpful. It seemed like there was some nightlife in the hotel bar, though we were never around to see it. No issues whatsoever, and would definitely go back.

Recently I arranged an informal party for the leadership team where I work. I found staff at Arc the Hotel to be very responsive. I asked that they prepare fancy hors d’oeuvres and that they deliver each platter separately every 20 minutes or so. Open bar. Members of my management team ordered their drinks and were served good food without... More

I organized a Corporate Christmas Party in their Upper Lobby and Library, and was impressed by their courteous and helpful staff. The food was delicious, the decorations simple but elegant and the overall feel was private. We made quite a few last minute changes, and they were very willing to accommodate. Also, we had a few nursing mothers present and... More
