We stayed at Solara for 1 night during our trip to Alberta/BC. The room was nicely appointed with small kitchen, fireplace, patio, and soaker tub. The fitness facilities were excellent. There were curtesy bikes available for rent, but unfortunately 5 of the hotel's 8 bikes were stolen or damaged. This left 3 and they were all booked during our stay.... More
