Though I stayed one (1) day only in this hotel, I found it very comfortable. It's nice place to stay away from home. They have provided the amenities that a guest is expecting from a hotel. Breakfast: Very good

I've been staying at both the Varscona and Meterra on Whyte for about 10 years not whenever I'm in town and have been consistently impressed every time. Both are great little hotels with excellent service in the best part of town.

The level of service and dedication that this hotel offers is truly exceptional. When my two-year-old grandson came down sick, front desk staff did everything they could to help. Someone went all the way down the street to buy him apple juice and ginger ale. They willingly brought up extra towels and clean sheets, and overall, just went way out...

we have stayed at the Vasconna for weekend trips to Edmonton for many years and like the location for shopping and restaurants and access to other parts of the city. Although it is an older building and has some heating issues in some rooms, the staff and convenient location makes up for any minor issues.

Overall an excellent facility. This was our third visit, each for about one week long. Very helpful staff throughout. Breakfast is very good except the scrambled eggs are very dry and possibly some menu variety from day to day would be good.

Since the updating and upgrading this is a first class place to stay at a very reasonable price. Great location. Valet parking was excellent. Close to amenities on Whyte Ave. The room was quiet, clean. The decor is very artistic and presents a warm welcome.

Just a great hotel on Whyte Avenue. Close to restaurants and shopping. Great service and friendly staff. Wifi is actually really fast and the room presentation is very comfortable. Larger tv and bottled water is a definite perk that makes your stay that much more comfortable. Love this hotel!
