Best location in Edmonton for business trips, right on Whyte Ave so you have lots of options for food and walking in the evening. The rooms are spacious, clean and have a beautiful aesthetic in the room décor.More

Great, friendly, value-for-money hotel: staff were amazingly welcoming, complimentary breakfast and cheese and wine were excellent, rooms were clean and well-stocked. One of the best hotels I’ve stayed in, especially for the service - we really felt like we were valued guests. Thank you!

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.
