The rooms at this hotel are amazing - we got a two bedroom suite and it was very modern and nice. However, the pool area is very awkward. We had to go outside and then through the lobby to get to the pool (not very convenient in winter). There really isn't a pool, just a very shallow children's wading pool... More

This is the second time we've stayed at Solara as a family over the Alberta Family Day holiday. As usual, the two bedroom suite we stayed in was impeccably clean and whatever we needed was promptly brought to our room. Service is fantastic at this resort and the rooms were comfortable and very nicely furnished. We'll definitely be back!

Stayed here with my family and friends in a 3-bedroom suite recently. Request for an early check in to accommodate our kids' naptime was granted without a fuss, and the suite itself was well appointed and comfortable. There were some areas that had a bit more wear and tear (the pull out couch probably was the worst of it), but... More

Given this was my first time staying in Canmore I was very impressed by both the hospitality of the staff at Solara and the establishment itself. Caleb (who checked us in) was nothing short of being extremely helpful with local eateries and nightlife suggestions after we had settled into our 2 bedroom suite. The suite itself was spacious, clean and... More

We stayed in a two bedroom suite in the Aurora building. Suite was nice, good space, beds were clean and comfortable. Nice balcony with chairs and a bar-b-que as well.

Nice spacious rooms and patios! The spa is great! Hotel could improve the 'pool' area, change rooms were dirty, hot tub jets were out of order and there were no towels in pool area. Otherwise a great place to stay.
