I stayed at the Sonnenalp during the President week break with my family. The Juniper room was spacious enough for 4, and the 2 double beds were really comfortable! The housekeeping and the turn down service were great. Toiletries were ok but nothing exceptional. The breakfast buffet was excellent: a big choice of pastries, fruits, deli, eggs, waffle, pain perdu....

Wow, what a location close to the slopes and in the middle of Vail Village. The rooms are clean and the staff is probably one of the best trained I've ever seen. Great spa, pool and Jacuzzi make this spot one of my favs in the rocky mountains!

The plus is the service and the quality. We stayed in room Nr. 308 which is unbeatable with mountain view, cheminee, balcony and the creek. The style of the hotel is very traditional european. Nothing is cool and trendy, there is no need for that. The hotel is in good shape. Family Fässler, director and owner is always around. Personal...

Just back from another flawless vacation at the Sonnenalp and, once again, can’t say enough nice things about the hotel. While skiing one day, a person I met on the slopes asked where I was staying and I said the Sonnenalp and told them it was my favorite spot to stay in Vail. She looked at me and said, “Everyone...

This hotel has weird decor and seemed out of date. The spa was horrible, they charged me $35 to remove my nail polish! And there was a dead mouse right by the pool! The tub and bathroom were great though, who doesn't love heated floors? Great location in the city, although valet parking was full so we had to park...

The Sonnenalp aims to give you the experience of a luxury hotel and spa in Austria or Switzerland. Want fondue? They've got it. Want a European style hotel lounge? Got it. A rejuvenating spa experience? No problem. You won't get the modern luxury feel of a Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons, but you will get friendly service, a staff that...

I echo all the other positive reviews of the Sonnenalp! Our family of 4 truly enjoyed our 6 days at the Sonnenalp. Everyone we encountered was welcoming and pleasant. The concierge staff, particularly Victor & Olympia were super helpful answering my questions about activities and making dinner & transportation reservations. It's cliche, but true--- because everyone was so warm and...

Spent 6 nights here as a family of 4 in one of the one bedroom suites. The hotel is centrally located, comfortable and accommodating. The service was outstanding at every level - front desk, concierge, valet, restaurants and bar, spa and activity directors, etc. The owner was lovely as well. Everything is top notch and luxurious without being flashy. Like...

My wife and I visited the piano bar for the entertainment and food. Both were exceptional. Although we weren't staying at the hotel the areas we could see were beautiful. All of their rooms were booked on this trip we will definitely stay here the next time.
