I stayed here in mid September and was impressed with its proximity to downtown offices and the very attentive staff. I also enjoyed the exercise facility and breakfast -- both made business travel more enjoyable.

My wife and I spent 2 nights at the Arc and absolutely loved it. The staff was very attentive, friendly and accommodating, our room was impeccable, and location is right Downtown so it's easy to walk everywhere. It was also a very short walk to the new LRT train which was great when we went to visit friends in Westboro. Food is great and inventive (try the falafel) at the restaurant and the Arc lounge is a true cocktail spot. We were even treated to a glass of sparkling and an amazing brownie cookie on check in. A big thank you to the entire staff, we highly recommend this hotel and we will be back again and again.

A well located but smaller Hotel and the room for the 2 of us was cozy and very clean, modern and comfortable. The staff were very friendly, particularly our valet, Serdar. He was so kind and helpful.

I chose this hotel for its proximity to the venues I needed to be at over a three day period. Calling ahead to leave important info was a disaster, as there is clearly something wrong with the automated system. It took 11 minutes and three calls to the hotel to achieve success. Upon checking in the reception staff were friendly and courteous. Valet parking ( really your only option for overnight parking) is expensive . The rooms are modern and well-appointed with up-scale toiletries. Food is expensive and I recommend that you go elsewhere nearby for half the price.

Air vent too close to the bed, very loud and constantly blowing cold or hot air right at you while you’re trying to sleep. I was there 3 nights and did not sleep because of the noise and constant cold air blowing at me. Everything else, staff food location were great.
