love the location, right on Whyte ave. Have stayed many times and it's 'familiar' to me. staff are always friendly and helpful. Breakfasts excellent, although with covid they have to pack individual containers. Those are good, but being gluten free, minimal that I can eat on those (but hey...it's covid)

Varscona is within easy walking distance to many restaurants, coffee shops and other stores. The wine/cheese function was not available because of COVID ☹️.

The parking was great. There is a parkade attached to the hotel. The room was very, very nice. It was clean and updated. The only negative is that the bed was a little firmer than I like. Overall it was a great experience.
