Solara turned out to be the perfect jumping off place to explore the Banff area. The suite was very comfy, clean and well appointed. It's a short walk into restaurants etc - so the location is great. For winter travellers there's a fireplace in the living room and both bedrooms.

Great place to stay. We traveled with our family of 5, 2 adults, 3 children and it was a really comfortable and wonderful place to stay. We arrived at 430p for check in, our room wasn't ready, made us wait for about an hour more. Once in our room, we were amazed at how really beautiful the room was. It... More

The air conditioning didn't work for 2 days and after several unsuccessful efforts to fix it, the manager decided to move us to another suite which was decidedly better. Front desk and hotel management were great but no so the housekeeping. In our 9 day stay, the room was only cleaned once but they didn't bother to clean the coffee... More

We had an amazing stay at Solara. When I booked the trip, I requested a mountain view room. Our unit was on the third floor of the Chinook building with very nice mountain views.Thanks Solara!

Stayed here on a Groupon for a great rate, but even then I'm not impressed enough to return. One person was left to check in guests, resulting in about a 20 minute check in procedure. That's not a good start. The pool area is terrible, good enough for my three year old but my five year old was bored to... More

I just returned home having spent two days and nights at Solara in Canmore. It was an outstanding experience. We had a group of 9 leaders from a company gathering for a two day working session. The rooms were beautiful and inspiring. Shared accommodation with separate rooms allowed for additional connection time in a comfortable way. The staff was excellent... More

I arrived on Sunday, June 8 and believed that my reservation had been amended to include an extra day - the Sunday evening. There was no record of it in the Solara system. Rather than sending me away or giving me push-back on who owned the mistake, the gentleman on the reception desk, with support from his supervisor, provided me... More
