Everything was great here at the arc. Will be traveling down frequently due to daughters sport events at GWU. And I am so close! Didn’t feel like I was in some big unfriendly hotel. A warm welcome and a nice light chat with the lady at the desk Even loved the shampoo and

Friendly staff. I have mobility issues and they put us in a handicapped-equipped room without even asking. Building seems older from outside, but lovely room inside. Location to metro is great, restaurants and supermarket nearby and price couldn't be better. Rare to find such a

Thank you for your five star review. Our location in the heart of Foggy Bottom, between historic row houses and neighboring the Kennedy Center and Georgetown Neighborhood, allows an immediate connection to DC for our guests. We are pleased to see that you enjoyed the in-room pillow menu that we have created on the bed. We created this by selecting the 2 base pillows to give a firm and supportive feel while the two top pillows were selected to offer a plush and cloud-like conforming experience while sleeping. We are pleased to see that you had a peaceful nights rest on our beds. I will be sure to pass on your kind words and complements to Lauren at our Front Desk and congratulate her on a job well done. We look forward to inviting you back and hope to see you again soon!

Thank you for your review. We are so glad our staff met and exceeded your expectations. As you have noticed, city parking does come at a premium, our valet does fortunately and conveniently include 24 hour access to your car and a spot in private garage. We are looking forward to your next trip to DC and to welcoming you back soon!

The Arc hotel appears to be an older building that has been well renovated. The room was comfortable and a good size, the bathroom was very nice. The bed was large and comfortable and the TV in the room was large and capable of streaming from your phone your Netflix account.

"Book at the Arc!"
"Not really a hotel you would choose for views, but comfort!"
"Great rooms and make sure to ask for your pillow you want from their pillow sleep options that morning or during the day."
"See note on review "
"Like most DC hotels there's street noise and airplanes flying overhead. Always bring your sleeping ear plugs to DC. "
