Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
Solara Resort & Spa is a modern mountain chalet in Canmore, a quaint former mining town in the Canadian Rockies -- home to "sigh-inducing mountains, mist-shrouded forests and epic tooth-and-claw wildlife" (Lonely Planet).
Canmore is "Banff's less crowded and less costly sibling" (Fodor's) and hosted the Nordic events in the 1988 winter Olympics. Banff is a 20-minute drive from the hotel, and there are three ski resorts (Sunshine Village, Mount Norquay and Lake Louise) within an hour's drive. The visitor's centre at Banff National Park is around an hour's drive away.
The hotel has a 9500-square-foot wellness area, with a sauna, a steam room and a gym. In warmer weather, you can borrow a bike for free and explore the trails in Banff National Park. Guests can dine at Grande Rockies Resort (the property's sister hotel), which is less than five minutes' drive away.
Choose between 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom suites -- all offer a large living room with a sofa bed and a kitchen with granite countertops. Leather sofas, fireplaces and polished floorboards carry on the mountain-chic theme, and wine fridges add a touch of luxury. Each suite also has a washer/dryer and a private patio or balcony (some with an electric grill for barbecuing). Wi-Fi is free.
Travelzoo tip: To celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary, Parks Canada is offering free entry in 2017 to all its National Parks, National Marine Conservation Areas and National Historic Sites.
