No WiFi

WiFi was nearly impossible to get in the room. Even downstairs in the lobby, it was weak. Other than that it was a good hotel.

Great location, rough service

Loved where the varscona is located and the free garage parking. The cleaning staff dropped the ball huge however. We stayed 4 nights. 2 of which our room was cleaned when we came back from our days adventures. The last morning the hotel maid walked into the room without knocking.

family wedding and shopping spree

I was absolutely blown away by not only the location to very unique shops and restaurants but by the decor and most importantly how the staff bent over backwards to help us enjoy our stay. We had a slight problem trying to adjust our room temperature (we are techno challenged) and when we called the front desk - someone showed up to the door within 5 minutes and explained how to adjust the temp. They offer valet parking - at no additional charge! That was very convenient for us! Everyone was very helpful, courteous and friendly, making our stay at the end of our trip relaxing and memorable. Will definately stay there again!

Best place for a good dinner and awesome service. So if it's too cold to venture outside - just a quick trip through the lobby to the restaurant.

Great night out

Our room was comfortable, staff were amazing. We were in town one night, quick check in midafternoon. The valet was available to take the car when we arrived and offered assistance with luggage. The room was a little outdated but nice. The bed as very comfy, and the bathroom standard with Toiletries provided. We could hear a few loud guests but no more than other hotels weve stayed at in the past. Breakfast was nice, pastries, cereal, breads, boiled eggs and yogurt. Checkout was fast and the car rady when requested.

Whyte Ave fun

I stayed on Whyte to celebrate St Pat's day and not have to drive! The Varscona offers an evening wine tasting which is a nice touch and starts the evening off nicely. The rooms are clean. The front staff is accommodating. The cleaning staff however starts very early in the morning and are quite loud-not pleasant when the guests are trying to sleep in!
