I was looking to stay at a boutique hotel in Ottawa and already tried Indigo so I was very happy when I got to stay at the Arc last weekend. I managed to get a good price via Hotwire so was feeling good about that!
It was easy to find, we got there around 6pm on Friday night and at that time you can park for free on the street. We managed to get a space just down the road, 1 minute walk.
Loved the you get a flute glass of something bubbly when you check in...really who does not love that!
We were on the 6th floor on the side of the hotel which had zero view (which was a shame) I know none of the rooms have great views but would have been nice to see more than a brick wall! Also note there is no free internet in the rooms only in the lobby..I thought that was very cheap when so many hotels do free internet in the room.
Never the less, the bed was super comfy, mattress was firm and the pillows were heavenly soft, everything was modern and clean. The staff provide a turn down service with free water delivered, an apple and 2 chocolates...nice!
The hotel is nicely situated, its not far to walk to parliament hill or to Elgin street for a great selection of restaurants.
Thumbs up for the Arc.
