Comfy nice rooms. Good restaurants, breakfast and wine tasting! The location is perfect right on Whyte Ave. It is nice they have parking underground or valet as well. This is my favorite hotel in Edmonton.

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.
