The Varscona is always our first choice when staying in our favorite part of Edmonton. Our recent stay, however, was less than stellar. After recieving a complimentary upgrade, which was a nice surprise, the faulty plumbing in our room forced a move to a much smaller room with zero view. The tables were dusty and the comforter was upside down. The manager left a free bottle of wine for our inconvenience (thank you!) but the biggest disappointment was a managerial decision to eliminate the evening wine tasting and the excellent complimentary breakfast buffet, replacing each with a voucher for an adjacent restaurant. The location is always appealing, but I don't believe we will book at Varscona our next visit to Edmonton.
