We've been to Sonnenalp in the winter as well as spring, it reminds us of a hotel we stayed in Heidelberg, only more luxurious. The staff is friendly and helpful, always ready to give good recommendations. In the winter months, the prices are higher but during springtime (mud season), the room rates are much cheaper and the restaurant food is... More

Worst beds we have ever slept in! Had to order extra pillows just to shove between the wall and the mattress. Ended up sharing my husbands side of the bed with him so I would not roll off on the slope on my side and on to the floor! We really looked forward to staying here and paid a hefty... More

My sincerest apologies for this experience. We replaced all our beds over the past 6-8 months. I am embarrassed that something went wrong with the install in your room. There is no excuse for this oversight. To also miss the opportunity to make things right is very disappointing. We are better than that and will fix the causes. Thank you... More

Good Evening! Just a note to add my voice to the many others sing g the praise of The Sonnenalp (I believe this translates to "The Sunny Alps", according to ne of my kids). We have been frequent flyers at the family owned and run hotel, deep in the heart of Vail Village. We cannot say enough about the people,... More

We took my 5 year old to Vail and stayed at the sonnenalp. Although the hotel is not exactly "kid friendly" it did Nestor needs. The location is perfect for never having to get in your car and the staff was amazing. We stayed in a room with a lift and a Murphy bed and it would be perfect for... More

The Sonnenalp is in the heart of Vail Village. We checked in and were informed we had been upgraded to a nicer room. When we opened the door and entered the room, the wow factor was a 10. Beautifully decorated, the room overlooked the pool with a scenic view of the mountains. I walked onto the balcony and discovered we... More

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights for our 10 year anniversary. The staff was very friendly and Victor the concierge was a huge help. A bottle of champagne was delivered to our room on our anniversary courtesy of the resort. Our experience was great, with a few minor annoyances. The resort is in a perfect location in... More

We really enjoyed our weekend at the Sonnenalp. Our room was large and the bathroom was especially nice, with two sinks and separate large soaking tub and shower. I enjoyed a great facial and nice massage at the spa. The hotel common areas and spa are unique and lovely. There is a library adjacent to the bar with books and... More

My husband and I stayed here for my 60th birthday celebration. The confirmation email that they had sent me stated "It won't be long until you are wrapped in luxury at the Sonnenalp!" And that is exactly how I felt. At check-in, they informed us that we were being given a complimentary upgrade to one of their junior suites. The... More

I just got back from Sonnenalp spa hotel in Vail Colorado 2 days ago. I miss it already. The fire place in the room and the balcony overlooking the mountains awe inspiring!

This was our first time visiting Colorado, so we decided to splurge a little for this trip. As far as hotel location, it was fantastic. We didn't have to drive anywhere, unless we chose to, because restaurants and shops were all in walking distance. The hotel was beautiful, from its decor to the colorful flowers. Since it was just the... More
