My friend and I were there for during the first weekend of the Fringe Festival. Our stay was very pleasant. Varscona's client service is top notch. Anytime we made a request they were so prompt and jovial. I thoroughly enjoyed our suite which was immaculate and very quiet. I love that Second cup and Ampersand 27 are conveniently connected to...

Had a few rooms booked and the hotel was quite quiet being on Whyte Ave. ALso the valet parking being just off Whyte made it very easy to do. Beds were very comfortable and the morning breakfast was just fine. We would stay again for sure.

I was lucky enough to have won a night's stay at the Varscona through a recent promotion. I typically book at hotel chains. If only I knew what I was missing! Great beds, wine tasting & breakfast at the most amazing adjoining restaurant. Great location, staff & rooms. Loved it! I'll certainly visit again.

I've stayed at this hotel for several stays. It has always been a good experience. A very extensive breakfast was included in the price as was an evening happy hour (wine and cheese). The staff are unfailingly courteous and helpful, the rooms are clean and neat, and the area is a great mix of boutiques and restaurants.

We booked for one night at Varscona. We had a 2 floor room, not yet updated, and this is the reason why I put four/five. Anyway the room was spacious, with a large king size bed, an armchair, a table with chair, a fridge (without nothing inside). Bathroom was quite comfortable, but there weren't hooks for the towels, but many... More

Love the Varscona. Stayed there many times. Mainly as I love Whyte Ave area and there aren't too many hotels in the area so Varscona easily wins! The rooms are nice, staff is nice. One complaint that would possibly get me to stay at another hotel is they don't offer breakfast room service. There is room service for lunch and... More

Very satisfied with the hotel. Friendly staff, clean, quiet room. Great location. Hotel staff were very helpful providing direction, always pleasant and provided great assistance. Easy to find the hotel, close to the university, safe and the Fringe Festival was a plus.

We stayed one night at this hotel while attending the Edmonton Fringe Festival. The location allowed us to use the room between performances and is surrounded by excellent restaurants. The room was clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable night. This hotel would be excellent for a romantic weekend.
