We believe all travelers deserve exceptional value, service and comfort and quality should come standard with every room. We offer guests a complimentary and extensive breakfast buffet each morning in our Hospitality Suite. Guests can choose from an array of both hot and cold breakfast items, prepared by our in-house chef. Piping hot oatmeal, home cooked egg dish and accompanying meat for those who appreciate a hearty breakfast to start their day. On the lighter side we offer a cold selection of cereals, yogurt, fruit, pastries and juices. Touch of a button barista worthy cappuccinos, espressos and lattes along with a variety of specialty teas are available all day. To end the day, complimentary wine tasting and assortment of appetizers are offered between 17:30 and 18:30. Varscona provides a warm and comfortable hospitality experience to travelers looking for a home away from home in a unique neighbourhood near the University of Alberta. Please note there is a fee for parking.

College plaza is at the end of Whyte Ave where the Varscona is located. According to Google maps, it would take 14 minutes to walk or 3 minutes by car.

Although I did not use it, I understand that there is a shuttle which picks up at the hotel. I would suggest emailing the hotel to ask for details.

"Our room faced the side street which was probably quieter."
"Rooms to the rear and side of the hotel are best to escape the noise of traffic and people partying at the weekend"
"Rooms not facing Whyte Avenue will be quiter"
"If you want a bathtub, ask for a room on the 6th floor"
"from experience ask to be away from the irish pub ;^)"
