The check in process was a bit of a hassle...after all issues were resolved, it took an hour to get my room. I also ordered room service and got ill afterwards. The room was clean and the tv was excellent.

Convenient to everything. Wonderful breakfast. Bed was fantastic and so was the shower. Free parking was convenient and had a Second Cup right in the lobby. I would recommend this hotel for sure. Worth the price.

LOCATION: Shops, pubs, restaurants and many unique establishments are just outside the door. 15 min drive to downtown Edmonton TIDINESS: Acceptable STYLE: Traditional "hotel chain" decor (overly matchy). Not quite as bright and polished as advertised on the website (water stains on the ceiling, stains on the carpets etc) However a note in the welcome brochure says all the rooms... More

I stay here. Every year on business and always look forward to my stay. Great area for walking and touring the stores in Old Strathcona. You will not be disappointed if you stay here! The valet parking is a nice touch as is the free breakfast and evening wine tasting.

One night stay only, but pleasant and comfortable for my needs. Breakfast was great...I enjoyed starting my day like that. I was with relatives that stayed there as well, and we had an enjoyable breakfast and a lovely visit.

Excellent place to stay in Edmonton. Clean rooms, updated restaurant, coffee shop in the lobby is a bonus. The staff is always very friendly and informative. Valet parking is a huge asset……………………………..

I grew up in Edmonton, but had not been back for many years. The Varscona was recommended by a relative and, boy dis I thank them. Excellent all around. I usually have insomnia but I slept like a log.
