Fresh off top-to-bottom renovations, ARC The.Hotel opened its doors in May. The boutique hotel is located in Washington's Foggy Bottom neighborhood within a 10-minute walk of George Washington University and the Lincoln Memorial. Popular attractions like the Kennedy Center, Smithsonian museums and Georgetown Waterfront Park are less than a 20-minute drive from the hotel, and the Metro stops two blocks away, connecting guests to the entire city. 

High-tech guest rooms feature keyless entry, Smart TVs, USB-enabled bedside tables, a customized pillow menu, virtual concierge and free Wi-Fi. Accommodations are outfitted with stone bathrooms, Keurig coffeemakers, refrigerators and king or queen beds. Upgrades are available suites with sofa beds, desks, plush robes and additional televisions. 

While renovations to guest rooms and the fitness center were completed earlier in 2018, the hotel's restaurant is currently under construction and slated to open in mid-October. In the meantime, complimentary coffee, juice and pastries will be served in the lobby.

Other Comments
We did have some issues. 1st day, t.v. did not work. they gave us a different room. short while later, a man walks in our room, they coded his key with the wrong room number. 2nd. day housekeeping did not refresh room. 3rd day when we got back to hotel room key did not work. they did compensate us for a free breakfast and took off 15% on our bill. Even with the clitches we still had a good time and experience. I would still go to that hotel again. The staff was excellent and resolved any issues we had. Would use this hotel again.

Other Comments
We were happy with the hotel except for 2 things... With 2 people showering in the morning, only the first person got hot water. The second person did not on either morning of our stay. We also had a ceiling light that continued to flicker on and off once the light was turned off. We reported this to the front desk and some one did look at it, but it was never fixed, and there was no communication as to why, or what the problem was...

The location was excellent. Near the Foggy Bottom Metro Station and near restaurants and Whole Foods supermarket.
Other Comments
The staff were always helpful and courteous when we spoke to them. We found the first room to be so uncomfortably hot that we had to swap rooms after trying to adjust the temp for several hours. There was no hot water for several hours including the next morning. We also had issues with TV reception. We enjoyed ourselves none-the-less and it might be part of 'growing pains" after the renovations. It is not a 4 star hotel but an adequate 3 star hotel. It's location is excellent.
