Besides the soap incident, very nice staff and a great hotel. Good location. Good breakfast and very friendly valet person. Front desk staff were super helpful and were always willing to do whatever to keep us happy

I stayed at the Varscona once by myself, and this trip my wife accompanied me. The location, hotel atmosphere, service, room, cleanliness, lounge and valet parking were all great. We will definitely return.

This well located hotel is a gem. The rooms are well appointed and clean and the staff are pleasant and friendly. The breakfast buffet is one of the best in the city. The complimentary valet parking is a wonderful asset. The restaurant has unique and tasty food.

I stayed at the Varscona during a 3 day conference at U of A. It was nice to park my car for the entire time... Conference, restaurants, shopping all within walking distance. Very happy with the service and the quality of the hotel. Great value!

We don't live near Edmonton but have to make frequent visits to the U of A hospital. This hotel is minutes away and very convenient. The beds and rooms are comfy and the staff are pleasant and helpful. The breakfasts are tasty with plenty of choice. Even though the street is busy, our room was quiet.

Whyte ave is a great central location, hotel was very clean, and the price was fair. The hotel receptionist was very helpful when booking our stay. I would not book online anymore, I would phone and talk to the hotel staff, they were awesome!

Love the location especially when visiting family members attending the University of Alberta. Wonderfully comfortable beds! Great location for shopping. Friends staff. I especially appreciated the wonderful service at Ampersand 27 and the most AMAZING beet salad.
