In the Room
- City landmarks
We enjoyed the set up of the suite - 2 fireplaces and the kitchen were wonderful amenities.
We had a difficult time communicating with some staff. We called the hotel for directions as we arrived later than expected and misplaced our directions. The staff person wasn't very helpful (he didn't know there were 2 information centres in Canmore) and we had to stop at a store and get the correct directions. The fireplace in the living room and the icemaker in the fridge were not working when we arrived. We called guest services the next morning to report the problem and advised that we were going out, but they could come up while we were away. This did not happen and we had to call again. The service man who came up was very helpful though. We were also expecting the spa to be operational and were disappointed that it was not. Although the Solara recommended another spa, there wasn't a discount or special deal. We also found it quite inconvenient to have to walk outside to get to the hot tub and pool.
The resort itself. Location, value etc.
lack of proper lighting in master bedroom
Room was beautiful and cozy. Great to have a full kitchen!
No fitness room or hot tub and pool yet.
The suite had all the necessary equipment and appliances for the stay.
It was difficult to find the parking
Beautiful room! Accommodated 2 adults & 4 teens wonderfully on a weekend ski trip!
Hot tubs not ready to go yet.
We have a boy of 15 and a girl of 11. We were able to have a room of our own, with fire and tv. Our son also had a room with a king size bed and my daughter was happy with the sofa bed tv and fire. Everyone was happy. The standard of accommodation was very good, very high spec. The kitchen was perfect and so helpful that there was a washing machine and tumble dryer in the suite. There was a dish washer too, which probably wasn't necessary for us. The fridge meant that we could buy food from the local supermarket and cook it at the resort rather than eat out all the time. Two bathrooms, beautifully appointed. There were free films in a little used cinema and the hot tub was lovely in the spa area. I would definately go back to this resort.
We found one restaurant within immediate vicinity. We would have liked more choice. Having said that there were excellent places to eat in Canmore just five minutes away by car.
Comfortable bed is #1 in accomodation. BBQ available is an excellent idea! All the available amenities. Movies, gym, spa etc.
It was our one year anniversary and they personalized a note for us to wish us our best. It was so nice.
Well the cleaning staff made a boo boo and camf into our room at 830 am.
I enjoyed the decor and the comfort of the suites. I also enjoyed that the location was easy to access and had easy access to downtown and out of the town. I loved the bathroom counters and the fire place sheld with the little shell marks and loved the kitchens.
The lamps in the living rooms do not match the rest of the decor. While Solara is trying to achieve a "nature type" look, the lamps, with the deer antlers, are an unfortunate and unattractive choice. No easily accessible restaurants if in a hurry. Also, not enough light in teh living room (only 1 bulb in the table lamps) and only 2 lamps in the king bed and no light in front of the closet so you cannot actually see in. Long term this would be extremely annoying.
The staff was excellent, responding to requests promptly. The kitchen in our room was well stocked.
Very nice apartment, comfortable beds, good coking facilities. Overall a very comfortable and enjoyable experience.
I loved the room, it looked good, it was clean the shower was amazing!
it was quite noisy at night and the sound seemed to carry, I did not sit on the balcony because of this.
Good location and large room
Washing machine broke, so I had to travel home with wet clothes; maid service included making beds but not other simple tasks such as cleaning counters; 60 minute massage was $140 (price not disclosed); front desk staff lacked any personailty
Check-in staff was very helpful and friendly
For this type of hotel, I would have expected a full pool The hotel staff used the bellman carts to transport their supplies so it was very difficult to locate one when we were checking out
We enjoyed the concept of the facility as well as the layout of the "room". Very well thought out and an excellent concept.
We felt that the noise from the parking garage entry door was very loud in our room, maybe investigate putting a closer on the door to minimize the slamming of the door and interfering with our otherwise very pleasant stay.
