I was there for business with a group. The reservation was made for the group. When I got there, I started to worry about the quality of the hotel (it looked like a low-end spot). Ended up being good. Although, nobody will take care of your luggage, staff were friendly. A second cup and a very nice restaurant are part... More

I was here on business and was pleasantly surprised by how nice this hotel was. The king room was perfect for my needs. The complementary valet parking and afternoon wine was a nice bonus. I would definitely stay here again.

stayed here for 2 nights for a conference that was at the hotel. Not a great experience. The only good things I can say about the hotel is that the shower was good and the bed was fairly comfortable. The room itself was pretty dingy, wall paper was peeling of the walls in the bathroom, the lights were shorting out... More

My boyfriend and I had such a great time here. It started right at the front desk with friendly staff, free parking and informing us that in a half hour there was an hour of free wine and cheese on the second floor. Super:-) The room is comfortable, clean and quiet. No disturbances throughout the night. There is a second... More

My partner and I were visiting Edmonton for the first time this month, and we booked a room via Expedia with Varscona. The hotel provided a great experience particularly considering such reasonable prices. The room was simple and somewhat outdated, but it was clean and comfortable. The lobby is very nice, and the Second Cup cafe is attached to theain... More

First, in the last few years I think the prices for Edmonton hotels have exploded comparative to other parts of the world for no apparent reason. The Varscona, for the price, has very good value. The location, particularly with free parking, is the best for Whyte Ave and to access public transit. The lobby is nice, the rooms are modern... More

This hotel is within walking distance of all my appointments. The complimentary valet service worked well and all employees I spoke with were very pleasant and helpful. My room was very clean and comfortable. I look forward to eating at the hotel restaurant when it re-opens.

Spent a wonderful weekend at the Varscona. Even though there was renovations in progress we hadn't even noticed had we not read the signage. All the staff were friendly, courteous and professional.

I chose this Hotel because it was close to the Jubilee Auditorium, as we had tickets to see Lyle Lovett, great concert by the way. We had stayed there before and liked it.

I was appalled at the condition of both the hotel and my room, particularly for the high price charged. The staff was welcoming and excellent - the one positive aspect of my stay. However, at $210 plus tax for the stay, having good staff is simply insufficient for the poor quality of the stay and condition of the hotel. The... More
