Editorial review:

The hotel Arc The.hotel is trendy and modern, located in downtown Ottawa. The rooms are small, there's a library with free Starbucks. The staff is prudent and the bar is great. The Mood Booth is of particular interest, with its ever-changing colors. Some rooms facing the street are noisy, but other than that, this hotel is a good choice.

        The Location

        The rooms are very small. I had to literally step into the bathtub to close the bathroom door. The bed was old and I could feel the springs through the mattress. I ordered dinner through room service and paid $94 for a small filet, ceasar salad and one glass of wine ($10). The charges did include a 15% gratuity. I don't mind spending that on a meal when it is worth it. This wasn't. The lettuce in the salad had brown edges and lacked taste and cost $16. The steak was closer to cold than it was warm.

        The location is great. Decor is very smart as well.

        The airconditioning system kept my wife awake most of the night as it kept kicking in. Our friends that stayed with us also experienced the same problem however, they ended up pulling the plug on the unit so that they could get a few hours sleep.

        They give you an apple and chocolates each night with a bottle of water.

        My room was much smaller than that of my colleague'S. I recommended the hotel to her, I booked through Booked.net and she just called the hotel and got the same rate. She had a huge room and mine was so small, I couldn't do yoga in it like I had planned in the evening. I could barely fit my room service tray through the narrow entryway! My room was dusty, the carpets were not clean and the bathroom could have been cleaner. It might have just been my room floor. The walls all had death moths on them as art work in a frame. Gross. My room was also missing a blanket at the end of the bed unlike the other rooms. Missing small details, not expected in a hotel that adversises to be luxury. Had to pay for internet.

        Nice room finishings, spa products in room.

        View of a brick wall, small room. Perhaps this is why it was such a good price.

        The staff at the front desk and in the bar were very friendly and very helpful. We stayed at the hotel with friends who had recommended it. We really liked how comfortable it was. We will definitely recommend it to anyone who is asking for recommendations for a good hotel to stay in.

        Probably the most appealing aspect of the Arc is its design. At home we enjoy modern furniture and don't really want to stay in a dated or dumpy hotel when we are away.

        The rooms are stylish and sexy but just too small. The bathroom and hall area are both cramped and make it difficult for two people to pass one another without turning sideways...and we are not large people. The room came with only 1 robe and when I mentioned it at the desk when we checked out we were told "Don't worry, it it was made up with 1 robe, we will have a record of it". I would have rather heard "I'm sorry about that".

        Nive decor, well -situated, comfortable rooms that are a good cut above the standard Holiday Inn type hotel. Little touches like the complimentary sparkling wine at check-in, quality of complimentary bathing products.

        Room right over the street - a little noisy.

        Bed confortable, nice design

        The room was too small, Ottawa is not a big city like New York where you could expect small rooms. The bathroom was average, with shower dating from 1970.... the bed was not a queen bed but a full bed. The room was noisy you could hear from other rooms and hallway.

        The hotel is centrally located to most of the downtown attactions. The staff was very attentive and knowledgable regarding the area and Ottawa itself. The room was very comfortable (especially the bed) and we liked the new renovated contemporary decor.
