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).

Balcony was sitting full of snow all winter I'm sure. It's melted now and balcony was full of bird poop. Every other balcony I saw had a propane BBQ and ours had the same cheap electric BBQ they had 10 years ago. Everything else is beautiful and shiny and new looking. Time to ditch the old electric BBQ's.

We enjoyed the suite, especially the kitchen and electric grill.

I left a number of items in a bedside table by mistake. One of them has particular significance to me. I never received a reply to my voice mail or email. In addition, I never received a satisfactory response to my request via their web site. Very disappointed in the lack of customer service and won't recommend the resort as a result.

If possible, could you bring in additional front desk staff on busy weekends like this one? We waited in long lines to check in and check out.

We booked because we wanted a hot tub. When we got there, we were told that it was under renovation. No one told us that. When we asked if we could use the sister resort hot tub,tree receptionist was very unhelpful and said no. We were not offered any compensation. After pushing, we finally got passes to the public pool. Then we called the sister resort on our own and they did we could certainly use their hot tub. I don't know if I would stay at this resort again.

Balcony was not clean (pigeon poo on it, we called to get cleaned) and the fridge in our unit was not working properly - Maintenance came up 2x to look at it and couldn't figure out why it was beeping all the time either.
