My wife and I recently spent a night here in an attempt to escape the summer heat. First, Vail is a great place to visit in the summer, ad the hotel is great to explain all of the events that you can do in Vail. It is a beautiful hotel that oozes with its European heritage. This is a deceivingly... More

Thank you for your visit and review. Vail truly is a special place to visit in the summer. The climate and all the event make it a perfect mountain escape. The Sonnenalp is right in the middle of all this activity and at the same time a wonderful island of mountain peace and quiet. I am happy that you enjoyed... More

This hotel is absolutely beautiful. The views are fantastic and the hotel is in a great location. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very cozy. There are a number of great restaurants and attractions nearby. We had a wonderful weekend.

This hotel was awesome. The service was awesome and everyone was nice and helpful. I will definitely come back. The room was large and clean. I was not excited about going in the summer but it was beautiful and so fun.

My husband and I decided to spend our anniversary here this year. We were at the hotel August 9th, for the weekend. It is a wonderful hotel and the customer service is top notch. We enjoyed the evening entertainment very much. Great happy hour at the Bully Ranch (try the mudslides!!) Absolutely excellent service at every turn.

We really enjoyed our stay at Sonnenalp. The room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is so quaint and pretty, I only wish I can come back when there's snow everywhere too! They had a deep soaking tub and provided bath salts as well as other toiletries. At turn down service they leave a big glass... More

My husband and I stayed at Sonnenalp for three nights to celebrate our second anniversary. We had a fantastic time in Vail and the hotel was a big part of it. They upgraded us to a suite upon check-in and I walked into our room to find chilled champagne on the coffee table and rose petals on the bed! Awesome... More

My Mom and I went to the spa for my birthday. It is clean, relaxing and BEAUTIFUL. I had a facial and my Mom had a massage. Both services exceeded expectations. The entire property was incredibly charming, and had a European feel. I would highly recommend this spa to anyone!

I highly recommend this resort for couples and families. The authentic charm of the Bavarian themed decor was a refreshing treat from the "rubber stamp" commercial hotel chains. This place is special and nestled up to the river and at the base of Vail mountain: simply gorgeous and serene. I consider myself a hotel snob, and this place was EXCELLENT... More

Beautiful very comfortable hotel. We stayed for two nights on our way from PA to CA. The room are not very spacious but very clean and nice. We had a small balcony which was great.

Thank you for your stay and review. I am sorry that did not effectively communicate our wonderful breakfast option on our Ludwig's Terrace. Perhaps the best breakfast spot in town in our garden and along Gore Creek. We will make sure we point this option out to you in the future. More

The Sonnenalp was the highlight hotel of our tour through the Colorado Rockies. Excellent and welcoming service from the moment you pull up. We had a suite that felt more like a comfortable condo than hotel. A walk-in closet offers space for all your belongings. A charming sitting area near the fireplace adds to the ambience of the room.
