Sonnenalp Hotel in Vail, Colorado

Check your plane ticket: Sonnenalp Hotel is located just outside of Vail Village, but the décor may make you think you landed in Germany instead. The four-generations-old ski lodge excels at creating a cozy, comfortable environment for guests returning from a day on the slopes (the lodge enjoys exclusive access to the ski concierge at Gondola 1) – rooms are decked out in old-school plaid, with custom-made Bavarian furniture, gas log fireplaces, and heated marble floors. Biomat can be added to a range of massage treatments to soothe sore muscles with far infrared heat and prepare the body for the next day's fresh powder.

Fuel up for the day with a full breakfast from Ludwig's buffet – Eggs Florentine, Landjaeger sausage, muesli and fresh fruit, with a handful of trail mix to go. Suit up for a day in the Rockies. Soar down Vail's famous back bowls and revel in the Alpine air. Return to the lodge to unwind by the fire, sipping on hot cocoa spiked with Bailey’s. Soak away the evening in the spa's whirlpool overlooking Gore Creek.

This was one of the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in. The staff was knowledgeable friendly and very helpful. I ate in the restaurant and the food was very good. I would definitely recommend it to anybody visiting Vail Colorado.

Well appointed, a pleasant surprise - a more traditional, cozy European feel in Colorado! Not over the top expensive. Great breakfast, and some nice touches like heated floors in bathroom. Would definitely recommend.

What a neat hotel! I absolutely love the step away from the traditional sterile hotel environment we are so used to here in the states. This hotel is very welcoming and the staff are very helpful! The sun room where breakfast is served is absolutely amazing- would come here for breakfast even if we weren't staying! Another nice touch is the heated floors in the bathroom- would be especially handy in the winter. Oxygen bar is very nice touch- perfect for adjusting to the altitude. We usually stay at the four season's but I think we might be staying here from now on! Also- great location, lots of dinning options in vail village , and inside the hotel!

We love the Sonnenalp for both business and pleasure. It is lovely and has a great vibe that combines European luxury with American amenities. The little touches make a huge difference, such as the heated bathroom floors and the Nespresso coffee in the rooms. The spa and restaurants are also fabulous. While I’m is a bit pricey, it is worth it. And, rates are very competitive in the off-season. You won’t go wrong by with this hotel.

Amazing room, fabulous staff, great visit. I would highly recommend to anyone staying in Vail. The location is phenomenal and I loved the balcony. Bed was so comfortable and the bathroom is huge! I will be back!
