Breakfast and wine-and cheese were great perks and helped me feel at home. I had a stressful 3 days of work to do, but the work-trip was very... More

There is absolutely nothing bad to say about this hotel. Complimentary valet parking; quick and easy check in; clean, quiet, and comfortable rooms (yes, including the beds); and it's on Whyte Avenue, which is always fun. Professional and friendly services all around.

As always I stayed at the Varscona, like I do every time I visit Edmonton. As Always, It was a wonderful experience, and made the holiday to Edmonton pleasant. Rooms are very comfortable, and seem to have been renovated since I was there last. I don't know what kind of beds they have, but it is the most comfortable bed... More

For the price you will not do better on whyte ave. Includes valet parking. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. Walking distance to any restaurant or night spot you would want. Shopping or just sitting on a park bench enjoying the ambience. A good place to stay with friends or your loved one.

The Varscona on Whyte is located in a trendy area of Edmonton, where there is a good selection of boutique shopping. The hotel staff is very welcoming and helpful. Amenities included a small business center, fitness facility (fairly decent!), and breakfast service. The breakfast service was good, but I would have liked to see more selection of hot items such...

Have stayed there for business a number of times. Very friendly, quick service. Good price and includes valet parking and breakfast. Location is in the heart of old Strathcona. Spacious, new rooms that are comfortable. Couple of missing items would be shoe shine kits and mini bar.

Staff were friendly. Carpets need cleaning. Furniture looking a bit tired. Bed and linens were excellent. Continental breakfast was very good. Sound transmission OK, could hear a bit of hallway and outside noise. Otherwise a pleasant stay.
