Sonnenalp is our favorite place in Vail, especially to celebrate our anniversay. However, when we got to our room, it was not up to the standards of the past. The ball hit the ground, fumble. But like the Broncos would all swarm to a fumbled deflated Brady ball, the staff swarmed to pick it up and run they did. Stephanie...

We've stayed many times of the years and it always a wonderful experience. The Spa is a lovely respite from busy days. You'll love the breakfast buffet! Experience a bit of European graciousness in the high country.

We spend one night at the Sonnenalp for the Forth of July. Our room was simply perfect, with a balcony, fireplace, walk in closet and wonderful bathroom with a jetted tub. We enjoyed the pool/hot tub area. My husband and I both booked massages at the spa and found the treatment to be outstanding. Enjoyed the infused waters and complimentary...

This place could make a killing if it advertised more about their off season rates to the Denver crowd that is sick of the late summer heat. Booked a 2 night stay on a Sunday and Monday night adventure. Was pampered and welcomed the entire time. Great temps including beautiful 30 degree mornings on our family walks, let us store...

From the time I called to make reservations, I knew that I was going to like this place! The quaint Bavarian-style architecture of the hotel along with some of the friendliest staff I've ever encountered has made the Sonnenalp one of my most favorite hotels of all time! We stayed in the Castle Peak Suite, which was truly amazing --...

First time at the Sonnenalp. Was there 4 nights for a wedding Oct. 3, 2015. Our room, the Bristlecone suite, was spacious and the bathroom with heated floors was awesome. Beds were comfortable, but would have preferred queen beds vs double. The purified water, ice and cookies brought in the evening were so appreciated. Staff there were first class and...

This was our first time to stay at Sonnenalp and it will NOT be our last. The staff made us feel like family with attentive and friendly service. Our room was upgraded for Bday and Anniversary celebrations and it was huge and sparkling clean. We loved the delicious breakfast buffet each morning and the hot tub and treatments in the...

The Sonnenalp is a wonderful Bavarian-style experience that we treat ourselves to each year. Beautiful setting, incredible staff, very clean. We relaxed for hours in the spa, had great meals, and never left the hotel. Highly recommended.

There is no other hotel as perfect as the Sonnenalp in Vail and Aspen. The Spa is delightful (not a real Spa experience like the Joya Spa at Montelucia in Scottsdale), but one step down from perfection. You'll rekindle a marriage needing a spark and rejuvenate the soul that needs refreshing. I can't say enough about my fabulous experience at...
