We loved this hotel. We only stayed 2 nights, but the room was amazing and very comfortable. It had a large, beautiful, fully-equipped kitchen, washer/dryer unit, and a large living area with a fireplace, and a separate bedroom. We did not get to take full advantage of the amenities of the room due to our short stay. But it was...

Spend 4 days in this hotel. The spa & swimming pool was closed due to construction. An elevator was not working so we had to drag our bag up to second floor. They made the bed but didn't change the sheets nor cleaned the rooms. I have no idea what did we pay for $300/night! Better try the Fairmount if...

Our two bedroom unit was spacious, nicely furnished, well equipped and clean. We also had a good partial mountain view. There was everything we needed for a weekend stay and we had a very enjoyable time, although we would have liked to have been able to swim (the pool was closed). The bathrooms were very nice, with granite and a...

We stayed here for one night so we were in and out pretty quick. Some of the features that were great were the underground parking, wifi, the rooms are very modern, cozy and offer a great view. There was a wine cooler and the shower had multiple jets. A few things to note: The pool is closed from February to...

We stayed here for a week in early February. We had a two bed two bath unit on the second floor in the Aurora block. We have stayed in Canmore many times, the past few times at Stoneridge which was excellent compared to this place. Check In - Two people at the desk, they did not say Hello, or How...

From check in to check out I found this condo rental a very good value for the money. Everything in the condo is top quality and it was really spacious. Were disappointed to find the pool and hot tub were closed for maintenance. Also the condo definitely not sound proof.

One point off for fireplace. It's just an electronic image. Not a fire. Was expecting a warm cozy space and that was a disappointment, just be aware of this. Other than that, no complaints. Very very clean, very nice location and easy, heated parking. Top notch spa, nice people.

Okay so the title might be a bit deceiving but what can you say about any hotel with views of the Rockies. We were in Canmore for my friends daughters wedding and the Solara was chosen for the wedding party and guests. They accommodated us well as we were all in the same building and not spread out over the...

Firstly, if you are European and considering staying at Canmore for a skiing holiday - don't! It's a real pain to not be able to ski in and out in Canada and to have to drive to the pistes from Canmore adds at least another 20 mins each way. So Sunshine was 40 mins away and Lake Louise 1 hour...
