I could not get a reservation at my usual downtown hotel and the Varscona is a sister property. I was a bit worried about driving across the river in the morning for a business meeting but I worried for nothing. The ten minute drive had me where I needed to be on time and not frazzled by rush hour traffic.... More

We had a very nice stay at the Varscona, had a girls night and its located perfectly to walk Whyte Ave but still far enough away for peace and quiet. Would stay here again...thanks for the enjoyable experience.

The hotel is nicely located for a half hour walk to the Cross Cancer Institute For easy access. There are many restaurants close by for a variety of cusines. For me the location to the airport and the Cross Cancer Institute are the important aspects.

This hotel is near the university and has a variety of shops and services nearby. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was more than enough parking available to us. The breakfast was good but it was nothing special. Overall I would recommend this hotel.

Nice change to stay downtown in a quaint little hotel with some character for once! Simple yet cozy... Ampersand 27 is downstaires and is AMAZING. If you are a hotel guest you get to enjoy a free wine tasting for an hour. Great perk.

The service is outstanding and all the amenities needed for a relaxing, convenient and accommodating business trip are there. The evening wine and cheese is a great way to wind down from a busy day. Be sure to ask your host for some restaurant recommendations - there are a ton of great spots in the area. If you're not looking... More
