Thank you very much for your feedback, I am so sorry to hear you had such a terrible view. We try very hard to work with the views the hotel has in it's location. Being in a city center it's always challenging. Next time, please ask front desk to offer you a room with a view, we will always do this so long as we have availability. thank you very much for your feedback. have a great Wednesday.

Hotel had no water from 10pm to 6am when we checked in. Couldn't take a warm shower when we got back to the hotel room.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time rating us so positively. We hope to welcome you again soon

5 out of 5
Very nice hotel for our long weekend in Ottawa. I traveled with my wife and kids and we all enjoyed our stay. Staff were helpful and friendly. Location is extremely convenient to most tourist destinations. Rooms are snug for four but more than sufficient for us; wifi was good and enabled me to work remotely. I also commend the hotel on the excellent cruelty free shampoo, conditioner and lotions. Breakfast in the hotel was very good - steel cut oats were superb. If I had been traveling alone on business Arc The Hotel would be a terrific choice. We would stay there again. However for anyone who plans to stay in the hotel more than just for sleep and someplace to keep your bags, you may want to consider other places too.

I'm sorry you weren't pleased with the size of the bed in your room. Next time, we would be more than happy to arrange for something a little more comfortable for you and your partner to stay. We appreciate the positive comments you made about our location, and that is something we definitely use to our advantage! We look forward to welcoming you back at Arc The.Hotel in the near future!
