Staff was great, friendly and helpful. The valet parking wasn’t available because my truck was too big. From the size of the parking spaces I saw, a Mini Cooper may fit.

Dear Travelocity user, Thank you for staying at ARC The Hotel. I'm happy to know that staff took great care of you. In regards to parking, we do have valet parking available but have size restrictions due to the size of our garage. If you decide to stay with us in the near future, our valet staff will direct you to another location where your vehicle can fit no problem. Thank you again, and we hope to see you soon!

Surprisingly good for the price! Great location, especially if you want to go to GW University. I'd definitely go back! Try street parking to save $$.

I had to turn the air conditioner completely off to avoid freezing. The temperature setting didn't seem to accurately control the AC. Also, there was frequently a noise coming from the window area that sounded a bit like jackhammering, which seemed to be caused by machinery inside the building.

I liked the intimacy of the place. Small and cozy. However, the customer service at the front desk is horrible. The restaurant breakfast was delicious and the service was great.
