    We liked the people/service but the room was 717...very small for the cost. Also charge for internet..which they should throw in. Also the room was way to hot at 23 even though it was set to 19 degrees.

    I was in a queen bed size, intimate sized room. It was clean, and comfortable. business purpose, and I did not spend much time in the room. The hotel was a great location in downtown Ottawa. I will definitely consider using the Arc again.

    When I leave to go to the airport I have to catch a charter flight at 7:00am so I guess I'll have to leave at least 2 hours before that, depending on information I get from the tour company. Is there a shuttle to the airport at that time or how long and approximately how much would a taxi cost?
