I live in Colorado and do between one and three girls' getaways at the Sonnenalp every year. (Would go more often if ski season didn't put it out of my price range). I have never been disappointed by any minute detail of any stay. All staff members incredibly polite and helpful.
The main purpose of the our stay is the beautiful pool and spa. I am incredibly particular about a pool and the Sonnenalp's is hands-down my absolute favorite. The half-indoor/ half-out pool is perfect for any weather. We alternate between the solarium, with fire place and cushioned lounges, and the creekside sun deck. Both are incredibly peaceful to read a magazine, sip wine, and catch up with friends without any screaming children. I love that there's a hot-tub inside and out. The steam and sauna in the locker room are state of the art as well, complete with iced eucalyptus-infused washcloths and big fluffy towels.
The rooms also are beautiful- upgrade to the Lodgepole or better. The bathroom is bigger than most hotel rooms. The patios have great views with the sound of the creek, and the fireplace is a nice touch. The housekeeping does a turn down service with cookies.
All the food is excellent. We eat lunch in the spa, and dinner at Bully Ranch or the Swiss place. The breakfast buffet is the most well-done I've ever seen. 10 kinds of fruit, quality meats, and you can even add something off the menu, like lox.
This hotel is perfect for any type of getaway, and I am counting down ski season to go again!
