My wife, teenage son, and I recently spend time at this wonderful property. I don't mean to sound "stuffy", but it takes a good deal to impress us in our travels, and this establishment did. It is a wonderful little piece of Alpine Europe here in the states. The location in Vail of course provides for superb scenery into which the Sonnenalp fits so well. The property itself is well maintained with beautiful flowers everywhere and little noise. The interior is warm, dimly lit (in a positive way) and contains a bar, library, gameroom, and numerous restaurants; all clean & welcoming and done in an Alpine motif. The brightest area is the spa which has an indoor & outdoor hot-tub and pool that is both internal and external; all surrounded by manicured woodland. Our room was plaster and wood framed Swiss lodge style, and actually consisted of several rooms (bedroom with fireplace and balcony, huge bath area, dressing room, and hallway). Turn-down service, laid out robes & slippers, and cookies await you at night. The breakfast was large, varied, and exceptionally prepared. One night we ate outside at one of the restaurants (Bully Ranch) and the food and service were again first rate. I must especially comment on all the staff. They are very numerous (even though this is the 'slow' season), cheerful and exceedingly helpful while always maintaining a calm dignity. Every staff member makes each guest a priority. One evening the bartender, despite being quite busy, was far more concerned than my wife that he had prepared her tea properly. The Sonnenalp was one of our most pleasant stays anywhere, and we highly recommend it for anyone visiting the Denver/Vail area. Enjoy your trip.
