This hotel is renovating itself floor by floor, and my updated room was very nice, with a good large working desk and outlets in the base of all the desk and nightstand lamps, handy, and well-laid out bathrooms. Front desk help was courteous and prompt (good local dining advice), and the location is excellent. Breakfast was included in my rate... More

We love the Varscona & Metterra..we liked the wine tasting and location. Staff is always friendly and it was close to the hospital we needed to be at. We always enjoy staying at either hotel and will stay again for sure

A great experience. The newly renovated room was very nice, and the staff was excellent. Would like to have the option of menu service at breakfast, but the buffet was good. The location lends itself to getting out and exploring.

Staff friendly, layout confusing, need card key for every move. Room clean, fridge and microwave an asset. Closet small and difficult to access clothes. On site restaurant very pricey for food quality

In general, it is a good hotel with good services. Front desk people were helpful and polite. Its location is very good. Breakfast buffet was also good. But it is very pricy, compare to similar hotels.

Can honestly say everything was great - the location, the breakfast and restaurant, the room, the comfortable beds, the lobby, the staff, and the valet parking. I will recommend the Varscona to everyone.

Great Whyte Avenue Location - short walking distance to many restaurants and theaters as well as a short drive to Downtown Edmonton. The Hotel rooms are well appointed, quiet and comfortable as the value of a stay is enhanced by the afternoon wine tasting and free breakfast.
