Friendly staff, quiet, great location - one of our favorite stays in Edmonton. Small hotel south of the river on Whyte Avenue, a trendy spot for shopping and dining. Close to University of Alberta. Easy to get downtown.

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.
