Really great experience. Very clean and had everything you would need. Proximity to the university was great, Whyte avenue was a blast, the gym was great. I would only recommend a clock in the gym-with business travelers that is really important.

Great location. Free breakfast buffet was an added bonus and good choice of food. The evening wine tasting was a bonus. The parking wasn’t the greatest and the fee I was not aware off. This changed as of June 1, 2018.

Great area of town. You can walk to everything! Loads of great restaurants and shops. Excellent breakfast even keto and gluten-free. The room was clean and had a great shower. The internet worked well.

College plaza is at the end of Whyte Ave where the Varscona is located. According to Google maps, it would take 14 minutes to walk or 3 minutes by car.

Although I did not use it, I understand that there is a shuttle which picks up at the hotel. I would suggest emailing the hotel to ask for details.
