This hotel is fantastic. We stayed here to meet friends who were staying at another hotel that was booked. We were so lucky! The vibe in this hotel is civilized and so cozy and comfortable. All the staff knew the guests names and were extremely helpful. Our room was very nice. Huge closet, huge bathroom and an inviting fireplace in...

We had a wonderful stay at the Sonnenalp, as we always do. The staff is always helpful and the amenities make it so you never have to leave the resort. The breakfast is awesome. The hotel is expensive but you definitely get what you pay for.

The Sonnenalp will enchant you and pamper you and and make you feel very special. The staff goes out of their way to meet your needs; the concierge seems to be able to arrange for any request. The lounge area is civilized and and quite comfortable and the breakfast buffet is spectacular.

I love this place! Great service, a homely feel to the hotel, great food, love the breakfast, fantastic spa. I used the steam room and pool every day after skiing. Thursday lunch was provided for guests up on the mountain - a nice touch. Saturday evening by the pool they provided S'mores, Hot Chocolate, Hot Apple Cider and Gluwein.

We decided to stay in Colorado to celebrate our anniversary. Staying at the Sonnenalp we felt like we had gone to Europe without the flight. We love this property. The restaurants are fabulous. The indoor - outdoor pool is wonderful. Vail had a special event going on and was very busy. We spent most of our time at the Hotel...

The service was excellent! We were guest for nine days and by day two everyone greeted my wife and I by name. The answer to every request was yes, we can do that. It is close to great shopping, dining and the ski lifts. Our room overlooked the creek and the views were amazing.

Bully's 3 at the Sonnenalp is a consistent spot for casual dining apres ski. Food, service and ambiance are always reliable. Great for friends or family. Only drawback is they don't take reservations. Great for kids of all ages and pleasant for adults too.

Though there are 7 bowls in Vail none compare to the Super "Bowl" of them all which is the Sonnenalp!! Being NY fans, my husband & I recently stayed for the 12th straight year which feels more like a home away from home - a powerhouse of a staff headed up by Stefan Schmid, he's got a winning team!!! And...

I highly recommend the Sonnenalp. The location, service and the accommodations are terrific. The rooms are clean and spacious, the food is excellent and the amenities are plentiful. My kids loved the indoor/outdoor pool and the bar/ lounge is great for après ski. They also have a ski concierge service right at the base of Gondola One, which was awesome...
