We went into town for dinner, but...

Attended my nieces destination wedding weekend, held at the Sonnenalp. Rooms were spacious and very clean. The service, food, and the entire hotel staff were friendly and could not do enough for us. I highly recommend this hotel for any occasion.

This is our fourth visit to the Sonnenalp. Each time it is just perfect, but I have to say this time was odd. It started out rocky with a phone call to make the reservation. First time I called they had no rooms. My husband called back a few hours later and they told him they had several rooms. He...

We just left the Sonnenalp and I can't say I've had that level of service anywhere in Colorado, except The Broadmoor. From the minute we checked into our two rooms, with a complimentary upgrade (to the most amazing huge suite) were were in great hands. I love the breakfast buffet, it's like all the breakfasts we had on a recent...

Relaxing atmosphere. Attentive service. All staff treated this guest as a VIP. Would be a great wedding venue. Located in quaint Alpine-like mountain town offering a variety of shops and restaurants at the base of skiing slopes.

The Sonnenalp in Vail is amazing! The staff goes above and beyond to ensure every guest feels welcome and at home. The rooms are beautiful, the service in the lounge is exceptional, and the cookies at turn down are an added bonus. I can't wait for my next visit.

I have stayed at the Sonnenalp four times and have always had great service. Staying here makes you feel like you are right in an Alpine village. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated.
