Excellent hotel in the heart of Whyte Avenue. You cannot beat the value of this hotel and the amenities included such as valet parking, breakfast and wine tasting. The service is warm and friendly and the rooms are so comfortable and clean. We stay here...More

I was given a room with construction outside so had to ask to be reassigned. The rooms are quite dated and not very cozy. The front desk staff member was not particularly hospitable. Self-park is a pain in a snowstorm. I would stay elsewhere next...More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Varscona. My husband and I were attending a concert in Edmonton and the hotel was not far from the venue. It's right in the heart of the Whyte Avenue experience. I would recommend it!

A quality hotel in the heart of Whyte Ave that creates a pleasant atmosphere and enhances your overall stay. Professional and kind staff are available to assist when needed and the complementary wine tasting in the evenings is a must attend social gathering!

Great Location just off Whyte Avenue. The complimentary wine and cheese tasting and complimentary hot breakfast which included scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, bread, croissants, fruit is a nice bonus.More

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.
