Overview

Solara Resort & Spa is a modern mountain chalet and the largest resort in Canmore, a former mining town that lacks the big brand names of most mountain resorts. “Banff's less crowded and less costly sibling” (Fodor’s) has a quaint, village-like feel. There are three ski resorts (Sunshine Village, Mount Norquay and Lake Louise) within an hour's drive, and Banff National Park is still only a 20-minute drive away. There are high-octane activities like ice climbing, rafting and kayaking, as well as leisurely pursuits like fishing and soaking in the natural hot springs.

After a day of hiking in the mountains or racing down the snowy slopes, retreat to the hotel’s 9,500-square-foot wellness area. Here you can soothe aching muscles in the indoor hot tub, steam room and sauna. In warmer weather guests can borrow a bike and explore the national park trails.

Choose between one-, two- and three-bedroom suites -- all offer a large living room with a sofa bed and a full gourmet kitchen, including granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Leather sofas, fireplaces and polished floorboards carry on the mountain-chic theme, and wine fridges add a touch of luxury. There’s also a washer/dryer in each, and all rooms have a private patio or balcony (some with an electric grill for barbecuing).

Other Comments: Upon checking in they did not have a room for us and did not seem to have a record of our reservation. They had nothing on file for my name or the reservation number and after taking my phone and viewing the confirmation page from Travelzoo they gave us a different room than we had anticipated. It was a two bedroom as opposed to a one bedroom suite. There were no robes in the room and we found a container of dogfood in the metal ice bucket. When we started the oven to make lunch our room quickly filled with smoke and we had to call maintenance and postpone our meal until the problem could be fixed. They offered to clean the oven but just wanting to relax after a trip to the spa, it was quite disappointing having to wait for our meal. Oh! And then we found out there were no oven mitts or instructions for the European oven. However, the kitchen was really nice, loaded with virtually everything you could want - including a cookie sheet and potato peeler. Having asked for a late checkout and then confirming it, we were locked out of our room as we were packing up to prior to our 1230 checkout. Bummer. The front desk is not attached to our building and we were on hold for several minutes so this was not a great end to the holiday. Mike from maintenance was very helpful and apologetic. The spa was disappointing as they lost my order and could not locate the person who took the order. Once the item was located later in the day after we had settled in, my request for them to possibly deliver the item to the room was refused so I cancelled the order along with my later spa treatment. upon checkout the resort took off one night stay and that was appreciated.
