Booking online always leaves me wondering if the place is really as good as it shows in the ads. Solara was better than anticipated! We wanted our 40th anniversary to be special... relaxing and pampered. The one bedroom suite did that and more. The appliances, furniture, counters, colours, shower and cork floors were all above expectations. (we loved the cork... More

Very impressed with Solara. The suite was amazing, so spacious and well designed, it took me ten minutes to decide which bedroom to sleep in! The location of Solara is very good, not too close to town but within easy walking distance (10mins). I highly recommend staying here, its very comfortable,clean, plus the mountain views are breathtaking. All the staff... More

We stayed May 2012 for a one night family (5 adults) getaway. The reason we chose this property is because there are very few 3 bedroom places for rent in Canmore. The suite itself was absolutely massive and very elegant looking. Dark wood and finishings and modern appliances. We couldn't have been happier with the size. It had two large... More

We were very impressed by our Solara suite. The rooms were spotless, spacious, with high-end furnishings and kitchenware. Our corner room had lots of large windows which showed off the gorgeous mountain scenery. Loved the cork floor and super comfortable beds.

We stayed here for a girls weekend. It was during the RMS women's run so it was definitely a busy weekend for the hotel. The room was beautiful and spacious and very clean. Every detail was taken care of. Loves the extra amenities on site like the spa, hot pools and movie theatre (with popcorn!) The staff (Sara in particular)... More

I had the occasion to stay at Solara for one night on a business trip and stayed in one of the one bedroom villas. Very well appointed with fabulous views. I don't think there is a poor view in the entire complex with the majestic Rockies rising all around the area. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I would... More

I rarely post reviews but felt compelled this time as I am baffled how Solara is only rated 11 on TripAdvisor for Canmore hotels. We've stayed at properties rated ahead of it and there is no comparison. We've stayed at Solara about ten times now. Easily the most luxurious suites in Canmore, Solara continues to get better with much improved... More
