Luxury hotel chains seek to compete against each other by offering more marble and higher sheet thread counts. To a degree, I have bought into that marketing. However, on our recent stay at the Sonnenalp, I learned that a truly memorable stay is tied to the warmth and graciousness of the staff. The Sonnenalp appears to understand this more than perhaps any other hotel with which I have stayed. Everyday of our stay, the staff of the Sonnenalp warmly said hello to me by name and did all they could to ensure that our stay was exceptional. The restaurant staff was especially gracious and personable. I noticed that one restaurant staff person always stood scanning the room in the event that a guest needed something. That sums up well the level of vigilant service provided by every staff person at the Sonnenalp. We stayed at the resort for a family wedding, which was spectacular -- the setting was beautiful (alongside a cold-water stream shaded by pines), the food superb (not an exaggeration), and the experience was unforgettable. We will have to find the time to stay again. We really enjoyed our stay. It was truly memorable. Don't pass up the breakfast -- every detail of which appears to have been exceptionally prepared by the chef. There will alway be a new, lavish resort. I have attended many. But I cannot say of many of them what I can say about the Sonnenalp -- that my stay was unforgettable.
