I recently had the opportunity to spend a night at the Varscona and was blown away by the level of service I received from the moment I walked onto the property. I arrived three hours early for check-in and the reception was immediately friendly, accommodating, and efficient; the included valet parking was prompt; and I was treated to a complimentary...

Love the location and all the little extras - the evening wine tasting is a wonderful way to start the night. The breakfast was good - very pleased with the selection of items - nice to have hot foods as well as the pastries and fruit.

The Varscona Hotel on Whyte is perfect. In the centre of all the action in this neighbourhood, the staff are amazing and it has everything anyone could possibly want out of accommodations. Highly recommend the Hotels on Whyte properties.

Had a conference here. The customer service was amazing, loved the complimentary valet service. The room was large and decorated well. The only thing that wasn't great was the food. Mind you, I only had the breakfast buffet and the catering for the conference.

I was there for a conference and the hotel was extremely comfortable and a lovely location. Rooms were very clean and comfortable and the breakfast buffet was excellent. I would recommend earplugs with their automatically slamming doors.

Our recent visit to Edmonton was made all the better staying at the Varscona Hotel on Whyte. Clean,quiet rooms with great room service, complimentary breakfast and friendly, helpful staff make this a great place to stay. Walking distance to restaurants, pubs and bookstores of Whyte Avenue make the Varscona a wonderful place to stay.

Good location convenient to the university. Good breakfast, wine tasting and free parking. The rooms were nice and quiet, beds comfortable. They could add a few more TV stations. Will stay there again.
