My husband & I decided to getaway for the long Easter weekend/ belated Honeymoon. From the moment we arrived we were greeted warmly by Spencer that Valet'd our Jeep, he was professional and very courteous! Spent 3 days & 2 nights in luxury. Rooms were cozy and comfortable with a fireplace. Our beds were turned down with robes & slippers...

Beautiful and charming. First class service and room quality. Walk to everything in Vail Village. Valet parking only. Ludwig dining room is excellent as well. They have a Ski concierge in Ski Haus rentals in Vail Village as well.

I truly enjoyed my two night stay here at the Sonnenalp hotel. Every staff member from Front Desk, Housekeeping along with F&B was friendly and accommodating. My favorite part of the stay was the King’s club. The wait staff was very attentive and the live music was great! The spa was very relaxing with the outdoor hot tubs, pool &...

We stayed here in November; 8 of us in 3 rooms. Sonnenalp is customer service perfection. From the valet, front desk, housekeeping, room service- everyone was so friendly. We even had a slight snag because of 3rd party booking, but they fixed it for us immediately. They even made sure we were pleased with the new room once we were...

This is one of our most favorite hotels in the world and every time we stay here we are again delighted with the entire experience. The staff is professional and friendly, the rooms are lovely, the location close to all shops, restaurants and activities and the hotel restaurants are wonderful. Ludwig's is the place for breakfast - wonderful - and...

We were part of a wedding party last August with high expectations. The evenings were cool enough to merit some heat in our room, but the Sonnenalp HVAC is either heat or airconditioning and a space heater was required to get our room above 68 degrees. Can that be possible in a luxury hotel??!! Numerous amenities did not work, e.g.,...

This Hotel has a special place in our hearts for so many reasons. Last August I proposed to my fiancé on top of Vail Mountain. When we came down into the village we chose to Celebrate at the Sonnenalp. We had the great honor of meeting Robert who shared in such a rich moment in our lives. Because of his...

ARRIVAL: This hotel was right off the highway on the edge of Vail Village (walkable area of shops and restaurants). As you pull up, you are hit immediately by the quaint atmosphere and the very successful efforts of the hotel to make you feel like you're pulling up to a Swiss cottage. The driveway is a bit cramped, but the...

The Sonnenalp is a lovely hotel with great service. We stayed two nights, my husband skied and I hit the spa. The staff is very attentive and we enjoyed our stay. The breakfast buffet is huge and the staff replenishes quickly as food runs out. Sit on the glass enclosed terrace. The King lounge area is nice to have drinks...
