I have stayed here a lot and am never disappointed. The staff are unfailingly polite. I never have any hassles. The rooms are quiet, and the beds wonderful. Because of its size it is easy to get around and avoids the hassles of bigger places. I often consider staying somewhere else to see if it will be better but am... More

Had lunch there a few times, atmosphere is great. Not super loud and tables are nicely spaced so you can have a reasonably private conversation. Menu has some interesting choices with steak and frites as well as burgers and panini. The presentation is lovely. I would recommend their short rib, burger and their turkey brie sandwich. Quite a nice spot... More

Great serving staff, cozy atmosphere. This is a great spot to meet with workmates for a Friday evening wrap-up. The food is fine and the drinks are made to order. It has become a regular haunt.

Had dinner and breakfast here and they were both very good. Very attentive wait staff. But not accessible. In 2017? In the nation's capital? Not good.

The food is not bad but for the price is way too high. The plate size is huge but the portion size was tiny. They need to buy mid sized plates!

My favourite dish at the ARC Lounge has to be their salmon cakes. The beats they serve in the side are absolutely incredible.

We had the calamary as appetizers, fish and chips and the burger. Everything was amazing. Usually hotel restaurants are overpriced but the value was great. I would go back anytime for a nice romantic dinner. They are very well located for a nice stroll in the downtown area.

Stayed here for business, found it to be a bit out of the way location wise but Ottawa is a great walking city. The rooms were clean and comfortable, nice upscale bar/resto in the hotel.

I travel over 30 weeks a year, and I've been to Ottawa numerous times. Many places are hit or miss. I spent 2 weeks at Arc. The wifi is reliable. Having to spend more than a few days working remotely online for several hours, I never experienced service interruption and the speed is something that's hard to match from other... More
