This hotel is literally home away from home and a gem in Vail Village. It is possibly the most accomodating hotel in which I have ever had the priviledge to stay and certainly the best experience in the Colorado mountains. The hotel offers many convienences for travelers and the staff is more than willing to go above and beyond to make your stay special and memorable.
Checking in was easy and our room was very spacious with a small siting area and a very cozy bed. The bathrooms are large and up to date with a walk-in shower and whirlpool tub. The property has two restaurants (a little pricey for breakfast) and a pub-style bar in the lobby area. Music was available each night in the lounge which is equiped with many comfortable chairs and sofas. Should you feel like venturing off the property in the evening, there are many restaurants and bars within walking distance from the hotel.
The library offers a place to play a game of checkers or sit and enjoy a hot tea and book. The workout facilities are very nice with multiple cardio machines and a small weight section. The spa is WONDERFUL and has an indoor/outdoor heated pool. Spa staff are very professional and offer a number of servies. Very refreshing after a day on the slopes. The slopes are extremely close via a short walk or ride on the Vail bus system if you are in ski gear. The hotel offers ski/boot storage on site.
Another plus, the hotel is pet friendly and offered our two labradors five star treatment as well. Staff were willing to pet sit and provide walks during the day upon request. We always made it back, but it was nice to know that was an option should we like to have them take care of them. I know hearing "pet friendly" may offer a different image of this beautiful hotel, but it is truly nice/clean and you would never know that other pets are even on the premises.
The location is situated right off the highway in Vail Village. If you fly into Denver International, the hotel is an easy drive up the mountain or use a driving service if you are not accustomed to mountian driving, like me. I used a company called Hommes James which was a great service! Very easy to use. Otherwise, there is also a smaller airport in Vail but prices are usually a little higher to fly into that airport.
We love the Sonnenalp and hope to return again for our third year in a row.
