I've stayed in hundreds of hotels all over the world. At many in ski resorts in Europe. If given a free vacation anywhere, the Sonnenalp would be my choice. Not for the town of Vail, but because the hotel is perfect in every way. If it fits your budget, go for it. You will not be disappointed. I've stayed there on several ocassions and I can't wait to return. There's something about the place that it feels like returning home. The breakfast is the best you'll ever eat.
