Wonderful location on Whyte Ave near many restaurants and the University. Easy access to downtown. Parking and Breakfast included. Clean, simple rooms. Great value for any business travelers or those visiting the University for a conference.

The rooms were clean, service was good. Free wine and cheese. The location was great to visit places along Whyte and a 30min walk to the University. Valet service was complimentary. I did not try the breakfast which was included as 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.
