Very clean hotel. We stayed at the Arc Hotel while our son was in George Washington University Hospital. The staff was excellent. Every time they saw us, they would ask how our son was. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We picked this as a very last minute location after our Airbnb was a complete bust. This hotel was always clean, staff was extremely friendly, and our room was always clean. Cute location but not much near it but Georgetown is only a 20 min walk. Everything is walkable from it really which is the best way to explore the city anyway

Hello noelrodriguez1, Thank you for choosing Arc DC! We were delighted at the opportunity to be your host. I will be sure to pass on your great comments on the cleanliness of the Hotel to our entire Housekeeping staff. They take great pride in providing exemplary service. If your plans ever call for DC again, please keep us in mind. I hope it to be around the time when the Cherry Blossoms are in bloom, Kennedy Center and area restaurants are thriving, so that you can take in all that Foggy Bottom has to offer. Warm Regards, Aisha Derricot, GM

Extremely soiled sofa in room 811 and shower head that was turned to the wall so much you had to lean against the shower wall to wash. Floors also appear they haven't been shampooed in quite awhile. No microwave and the tiny refrigerator wasn't cold. Doors also don't close on their own so make sure you pull it closed behind you.

Booked rooms for a conference that was later cancelled. While there, contracted Covid-19. At first symptoms, did not allow the room to be serviced. Upon testing promptly told the manager to prevent any transmission to staff. Manager kicked us out claiming the hotel was being shut down. It was not shut down, it was just a way to evict us without complying with DC law. Now we have to expose others as we relocate. Whether you like it or not, Covid is here to stay. Kicking people out only exacerbates the situation.

813Marcie - Lisa? We are sorry for the Covid-19 diagnosis and pray for a speedy recovery for your son. After informing the Hotel of the positive result, as the General Manager of the Hotel, I called you directly asking what we would need to do to make your son more comfortable, and checked in multiple times to see if we could be of assistance, while ensuring the health and safety of staff and other guest. Our hopes were to be good partners, by fully honoring your reservation check in and check out dates, reducing your room rate and providing additional amenities. As you know, the Hospitality Industry has been negatively impacted by the current state of affairs. Sadly, many iconic hotels in our area are reducing or modifying their current business model with some suspending services for the foreseeable future. Our hopes are that Arc The.Hotel DC will be able to remain open and sustain during this time. However, it is reality that many businesses are currently facing. Many thanks to you for allowing us to be apart of your journey to good health. If you wish to discuss further, we can talk more face to face tomorrow when you come to the Hotel to pick up your sons personal items, left. You also have my cell number, so please let me know what time you will be on property and we can discuss further.

The pep band stayed here for a night, was a pretty good experience. The room is better than expected - clean and the windows give a nice view. There is a gym with filtered water for filling up my water bottle. Short walk to National Mall and museums. Only complaint is they don't provide reusable plates or utensils for our complimentary breakfast, so don't forget to bring your own to help save the environment.
