Had the opportunity to stay at the Solara Resort in Canmore for 3 nights. Even though my reservation got lost (oops) luckily they did find a room for me (was midweek) they had to upgrade to a 2 bedroom suite but did so at no extra cost. Awesome staff. Full stainless steel kitchen, fully equipped with all your needs for... More

We were very happy to have our room ready earlier. Front desk staff was very friendly. Our unit was well equipped, we hosted dinner for 8 and the hotel staff was very accommodating, bringing additional plates and utensils to our unit. We enjoyed the balcony and the barbecue. Hotel is ideally located for walking to town or to trails.

The hotel was indeed nice. I had planned this trip for a year to come down and go dogsledding in canmore. It was booked! On the Friday before the dogsled tour was booked they had called and cancelled our tour due to lack of snow. I had booked the solara through a third party and contacted them to see if... More

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
