The Varscona Hotel on Whyte is my pick for excellent value in the middle price range. This hotel is well-liked for its proximity to boutique shopping, clubs, restaurants and theatres, all within walking distance of the hotel. It's also very handy to the University of Alberta. It offers great value to guests through its recently renovated rooms with cherry wood finishes, comfortable pillow top mattresses with triple sheeting, and 40" mounted flat screen TVs. All guests will also enjoy complimentary Keurig coffee and tea service, mini-fridges and plush towels and spa bathrobes in their rooms.
Guests are treated to a wine and cheese reception in the afternoons and a delicious free breakfast offering healthy choices. Valet and self-park options are complimentary, as well as local and calling card calls. Guests online boast of fast free Wi-Fi at the hotel (which downloads up to 100 megabytes per second), adding pleasure as well as value to your stay.
Business guests can avail themselves of the 24-hr business centre and meeting space which can accommodate up to 120 persons. A large desk and ergonomic chair accommodates those needing to get caught up on some work. And a fitness centre is also on site for guests who want to get in a work out during their travels.
