Great place to stay. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with a gas fireplace and small balcony. The bathroom is HUGE with a huge tub and separate shower. The breakfast buffet at Ludwig's is amazing with so many choice I didn't get a chance to try them all. Definitely on my list to return to this hotel.

Everything about this hotel is welcoming and elegant! The aroma from the fireplaces immediately puts me at ease, and the (interior and exterior) scenery is superbly well thought out. The best part of the Sonnenalp experience, however, is the incredible service! The staff are meticulous, but also approachable. My room was kept neat and tidy throughout our stay, the ski...

This is our second time to stay at the Sonnenalp. This is truly one of the best resorts our family has ever stayed. Our girls truly loved every minute. The staff is beyond exceptional from the front desk to the cleaning people and all in between. I would recommend this to anyone planning a trip to Vail. We can't wait...

This is a family owned property and it is a gem in the mountains. If you're looking for big, 5 star hotels like Four Season or Ritz - this is not your place.

Thank you for this review. While we pride ourselves in living up to the highest service standards.

The Sonnenalp is a wonderful place to call home when in Vail. I was there just before Christmas and the hotel was decorated for the holidays including a life size Gingerbread House. What makes this hotel so nice is the staff. They remember you by name. My favorite part of my stay was waking up early and being the first...

Stayed here specifically for a trip to the Steadman clinic, surgery and recovery. We were here a week right after Christmas. The staff were all very accommodating to us. We were driven to and from the hospital multiple times a day, and were given the use of a car to use for pool therapy in Avon as well as trips...

This place is excellent in all aspects. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying their time here. The location offers access to the village which offers something for everyone. I will stay at Sonnenalp on my next visit to Vail.

I live in Colorado and have been to Vail many times. But, this was my first trip to the Sonnenalp, and I will never stay anywhere else. The service is what sets this apart from others from the Reception to Housekeeping, to Bell Services, and the Spa. These people are warm and kind and really care that you enjoy your...
