Excellent food and service in a cozy ranch atmosphere. Great place for a nice and fair priced lunch or afternoon adult beverage. The Southwestern Corn Chowder was especially good as were the fish tacos.

Sonnenalp makes Vail a perfect experience, from the friendly staff and alpine decor to the perfect proximity to the mountains. We hope to visit again and again. Sonnenalp is also a great location for a beautiful wedding. The ceremony we attended was by Gore Creek, and absolutely beautiful.

The Sonnenalp is a warm and cozy resort with many amenities including indoor/outdoor swimming pool, many patios and many lounges. A great place for couples and for families as well. The spa services are wonderful.

Our son got married at the Sonnenalp this weekend and the whole experience was terrific! The staff handled all the details and the many guests smoothly and graciously. The wedding coordinator was superb, as was the food and the setting. We will definitely be back and will recommend the Sonnenalp to our friends.

Had a great weekend get away before the winter season, took advantage of the Fall specials at an excellent hotel. Staff was very friendly. The location in Vail Village is great, right on the main walkway. Many Fall specials at fine restaurants made the experience a great value.

The Sonnenalp Vail really delivers! The customer service was outstanding. And not just at the front desk! It started at the front door, and continued throughout the entire hotel.

Maybe the most confortable high-end hotel I have ever experienced. Warm, charming, clean, attention to detail everywhere. From the 5th floor rooms to the conference rooms, this place is unique. Can't wait to go back.
