This is a nice place -- it has a good location with self parking next door. The rooms are decent and it has a nice full complimentary breakfast. The shower could have had better water pressure but other than that I stay there again.

About
Description
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 More 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. Please note there is a fee for parking. Less

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.
