The Solar Wind was a small hotel that was located in the city Gadrin, on the planet Cularin. The building was constructed using synthcrete and it had two floors. By the time of the waning years of the Galactic Republic, the hotel was considered to be old and had not been cleaned for a long time. In circa 31 BBY, the assassin Varin Teska took refuge at the Solar Wind after murdering the aide Narl Gorjax and the Heroes of Cularin, a group of freelance agents who were investigating Gorjax's death, tracked Teska to the hotel and confronted him.
