I own and operate a private investigation agency and paralegal firm in LONDON, Ontario. And, when it comes to chosing a hotel/resort for business/vacation.., admittedly.., I am rather anal about making sure the hotel/resort is everything it is advertised to be.... I read a few negative comments on Trip Advisor about "ARC, The Hotel"..., but my business associates and I had a very important meeting with officials at Health Canada (on JULY 24, 2012), which was directly across the street from "ARC, The Hotel"...,so.., it made it very convenient for us, just to walk across the street for this meeting. Having read some of these negative comments, I was a little skeptical about this hotel. Upon our arrival, I was immediately impressed. My room (king-size) on the second floor was immaculate, although a mini fridge would have been nice. The bed was beyond comfortable. Large spotlessly clean, bright bathroom. Parking was not an issue, as we were able to pull up in front of the hotel, unload our luggage and a very accomodating gentleman (valet parking) drove our vehicle to a safe area adjacent to the hotel. The room was beautifully decorated, with soft earth tone colours and richly stained trim work. Very relaxing. Good water pressure for a nice invigorating shower..., which is, I believe, very important for most men. Meals were exceptional! The Chef really knows how to prepare mouth-wateringly great tasting food. Staff were very polite. Many thanks to Shannon SULLIVAN and Howard KRAVITZ, for making our business trip a very pleasant experience. Without question, I would highly reccomend this hotel. Garry F. WHITE.
