ARC The Hotel was lovely to stay at when we visited for New Year's Eve. The location was really excellent. As someone who doesn't like to walk all day, the hotel was a comfortable distance from all of Ottawa's major attractions.
The rooms were average sized, and the bathrooms were small. The hallways are dark. Everything has a modern design and the beds were comfortable.
The service staff were great, and got us everything we needed promptly. Turn down service was lovely to come back to after a day of sight seeing with water and apples on the night stand, chocolate on the pillows and music playing.
We dined one night in their lounge and the food was great. If you go, you must try the churros with whisky-dulce-de-leche dip! Room service items are on the expensive side.
The parking is very expensive at $25 a day - but not much more expensive than nearby lots. The lack of free wifi is why this hotel is getting 4 instead of 5 stars from me. $10 a night per device is absolutely ludicrous.
Overall, we had a lovely stay and will definitely be considering coming back to ARC The Hotel for future trips to Ottawa.
