Chic accommodations in the heart of Ottawa
No spa on-site
Nestled along Slater Street in downtown Ottawa, ARC The.Hotel exudes a modern feel with its contemporary lobby and neutral color palette. Although some guests describe the property's 112 rooms as a slightly more compact than they had expected, they appreciate the Keurig coffee makers, luxury rlinens, minifridges and Gilchrist & Soames toiletries. Another plus is this boutique hotel's proximity to Ottawa's top sites; ByWard Market is about a mile north of the property. Guests who want to dine on-site can order room service or visit the ARC Lounge for locally sourced meat and seafood dishes like duck confit grilled cheese or scallops. Aside from the on-site dining, guests also appreciate the 24-hour fitness room. What's more, ARC The.Hotel boasts ample event spaces, making an ideal option if you're looking to host a business meeting or reception during your stay.
