A colleague and I recently stayed at Arc - very nice! Both rooms were small but very well appointed. Reminded me of some of the nice boutique hotels in Europe that I have stayed in. Good for business travel - great location - good desk area to work at.
Wouldn't recommend itbif traveling with a child as the rooms are very small - mind you neither of us had a room with 2 beds so those may be larger.
Parking is valet only and it is $26 per day! Steep! I am sure there is parking nearby but then you have to schlep all you baggage aroumd - just not practical.
We got an excellent rate by booking online and pre-paying. Standard rate was a bit steep.
All in all nice hotel - I would recommend it as long as you are getting a decent rate!
