We believe all travelers deserve exceptional value, service and comfort and quality should come standard with every room. We offer guests a complimentary and extensive breakfast buffet each morning in our Hospitality Suite. Guests can choose from an array of both hot and cold breakfast items, prepared by our in-house chef. Piping hot oatmeal, home cooked egg dish and accompanying meat for those who appreciate a hearty breakfast to start their day. On the lighter side we offer a cold selection of cereals, yogurt, fruit, pastries and juices. Touch of a button barista worthy cappuccinos, espressos and lattes along with a variety of specialty teas are available all day. To end the day, complimentary wine tasting and assortment of appetizers are offered between 17:30 and 18:30. Varscona provides a warm and comfortable hospitality experience to travelers looking for a home away from home in a unique neighbourhood near the University of Alberta.

Always stay at the Varscona when I visit Edmonton (several times a year). I like the friendliness of the staff, the hotel is very clean and in a great location. It's good value, especially if you can take advantage of the offers. Not sure whether you would want to stay there if you have young children because there are no facilities such as a swimming pool etc.

Great location and service for a fun family weekend great walking distance to everything. We had so much fun. Great dining options and atmosphere on Whyte Ave. It was great to hear the hustle on the street post COVID isolation.

The location on Whyte was ideal for the shopping I came to the city for. But due to COVID, breakfast was processed food in a box that was mediocre, and there was a daily parking charge that I was unaware of when I booked the hotel. However, the staff were excellent and very helpful.

Thank you for the feedback, we appreciate you taking the time to share. We apologize that our temporary continental breakfast box was not quite the hot buffet that we used to offer and look forward to a time when we can resume that service. We hope to see you soon - and thank you once again for choosing to stay with us!

We were given a very good deal by the hotel but this was definitely in exchange for lack of services due to Covid 19. Room and hotel was clean and staff were great. However the Valet parking, daily maid service, breakfast bar and restaurant were all unavailable at the time. Probably not a big deal for some but just be aware if planning a holiday trip during this time.

I had a recent stay during the corona virus crisis. The hotel was spotless and staff were constantly disinfecting touch areas in the common spaces. Having breakfast as a take away box was a great idea. I would certainly recommend this property.
