We stayed here for one night so we were in and out pretty quick. Some of the features that were great were the underground parking, wifi, the rooms are very modern, cozy and offer a great view. There was a wine cooler and the shower had multiple jets. A few things to note: The pool is closed from February to...

We stayed here for a week in early February. We had a two bed two bath unit on the second floor in the Aurora block. We have stayed in Canmore many times, the past few times at Stoneridge which was excellent compared to this place. Check In - Two people at the desk, they did not say Hello, or How...

From check in to check out I found this condo rental a very good value for the money. Everything in the condo is top quality and it was really spacious. Were disappointed to find the pool and hot tub were closed for maintenance. Also the condo definitely not sound proof.

One point off for fireplace. It's just an electronic image. Not a fire. Was expecting a warm cozy space and that was a disappointment, just be aware of this. Other than that, no complaints. Very very clean, very nice location and easy, heated parking. Top notch spa, nice people.

Okay so the title might be a bit deceiving but what can you say about any hotel with views of the Rockies. We were in Canmore for my friends daughters wedding and the Solara was chosen for the wedding party and guests. They accommodated us well as we were all in the same building and not spread out over the...

Firstly, if you are European and considering staying at Canmore for a skiing holiday - don't! It's a real pain to not be able to ski in and out in Canada and to have to drive to the pistes from Canmore adds at least another 20 mins each way. So Sunshine was 40 mins away and Lake Louise 1 hour...

Very clean, well appointed suites. Spacious and definitely comfortable and private. Spa on site was the same. Underground parking with a larger SUV was a breeze. Definitely recommended for whatever your accommodations require!
