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.
