Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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).

Would have liked to have known earlier that the Hot Tub, etc was going to be closed for renovations. We were advised too late to make alternative arrangements.

The accommodations
Other Comments
The theater was a cool surprise. Even though it's an eco hotel the housekeeping lacked a little. We ran out of toiletries on day 4 of 5 and they were not replaced, we had to pick some up at the front desk.
