We had stayed at this hotel once before in July 2019. I was a lovely room, with charm. It had great bedding, soft robes, good water pressure and was CLEAN and modern, though the front desk was understaffed when we checked in and departed, which was annoying but for the value of the room, it was bearable. I do not know what happened to this place in 3 years but the room was tired and charmless and the service was appalling. We had a confirmed reservation and we had to line up for 30 minutes while people in front of us checked in at 6 pm with only ONE staff to do all the work. He was asking for information to be written on a form - THESE THINGS were done before we arrived! Why make us do it again? The room was drab and the carpet dirty; the water pressure and temperature in the shower were all over the place. There were no robes until my partner asked for them. The parking costing extra for what amounted to a $300 room was offensive. This was an overpriced 2 star hotel and VERY POOR value for the money. We will not be giving The Arc a third chance; we are never staying here again.

The hotel was comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. However, the parking left a lot to be desired. One had to traverse through a narrow alley and once the garage door opened the ceiling was very low and the spacing was very tight.

We have stayed here many many times. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Close walking distance to Parliament and the Byward Market. Underground parking is easy (for small SUV’s and cars), and parking behind the hotel for larger vehicles. We will continue to stay at this location.

Boutique hotel in the downtown core. Walking distance to the Parliament Buildings and Byward Market. There is paid parking on site or there is paid city parking a block away. Pleasant clean room. AC is very noisy.

Great place for a short stay, within walking distance of Parliament Hill, the Byward Market and great restaurants. Excellent service and decent value for the buck. I would definitely return to this hotel for another stay in downtown Ottawa.

We would have expected a bigger room for a majestic king room. The room was clean and housekeeping was done without asking for it. Great location near the Parliamant and excellent restaurants nearby within walking distance.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights. If we hadn't booked a corner suite I would not have stayed at this hotel!! The last time we stayed here, we had a 12 x 12 room with one window that looked out onto a brick wall!! When we arrived and parked out front of the hotel so we could check in. We were warned by the staff that the parking meter guy was coming around ticketing cars!! Come on!! I can't even park here to unload luggage and check in??? Ridiculous!!! My husband had to stay in the car while I unloaded the luggage!!! The elevator is a complete joke. It takes Forever to come!! And when it does arrive there is housekeeping staff in it with a mop and bucket or a set of twin mattresses!!! No joke!! It is completely unprofessional. Why is there not a service elevator? Had to take the stairs numerous times. The list goes on...phone kept blinking because of a nonexistent message. Complained three times to no avail. Had to unplug phone. Both room keys did not work after first night of occupancy. Had to get them re-done. Husband gets back from an all day meeting at 5pm and sits down to have a drink when the staff starts vacuuming the hallway outside our door!! Will not stay here again!! Go to the Garden Hilton! Staff and hotel was superb!! No comparison!

I came to ARC for a last night away before my new baby is born. I stayed in the romance suite in order to have a bath tub. It was an incredible room. The bed was comfortable, the bath way more than spacious, and one of the first hotels that I have actually had real black out curtain situation that doesn't sneak some light in. The only things that I would have wished were for dinner room service option and more availability of drinks/snacks. Also there was some hair in the bathtub drain not cleared off. I will for sure return with my husband another day.
