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.

In my opinion Sonnenalp is the best hotel in Vail. It has the most unique rooms, best service and by far the best breakfast. This is the type of place that families have been coming for years. Location is a short walk to Gondola #1. All Sonnenalp guests can store their skis at the Bridge Street Skihaus (across from Gondola #1) for free. I've stayed at Tivoli and Four Seasons and Sonnenalp is by far my favorite.

We had never been to Vail and didn't know what to expect. Well, I actually expected to feel squeezed in as we were traveling with all five family members - as our oldest came with us from college - but that didn't happen. We stayed at the Sonnenalp for four days. The room was much larger and thoughtfully laid out than most hotels of this type. We had a gorgeous view of the mountains.The entryway had a place to store all our snow gear. The walk - in closet had enough space for everyone. A gas log fireplace cast a nice glow while we spread out for the evening or in between our daytime and night time activities. It had nice little touches like a nespresso coffee maker and complimentary freshly baked cookies delivered to our room nightly. The beds were cozy and the sheets felt luxurious. The bathroom was amazing. A jet pump bathtub big enough for two. A private toilet and a steam shower. Plus a very high end skin care line (that made it unnecessary to bring my own products) which was presented in environmentally conscious refillable bottles . The on-site restaurants were fantastic, especially the buffet breakfast at Ludwig's. There were so many healthy - and not so healthy - options and many international options, something for everyone. My kids had a great time at the kid's club and my husband and I enjoyed our time alone as a result. Don't miss the snowshoeing experience with Kara! We did that as a family. She was so patient and knowledgable, we still talk about what we learned on our trek with her. In the evenings, we enjoyed playing family games in the King's Club with the parents enjoying a glass of wine and the kids munching on snacks. On the weekend, they had music there and it felt cozy and exciting at the same time. The hotel is so conveniently located, we walked into the center of town to skate at the ice rink and explore all the wonderful shops. They have a great arrangement with the SkiHaus which made renting a snap and they delivered our gear in the morning before we headed out. Yoga with Marta was incredible in the sunny, golden room which felt sweet and joyous. Finally, the spa. OMG. Stephanie was amazing. One of the best massages I've ever had, so well worth it. Plus they have an indoor pool which was laid out in a very creative and open presentation. We had such a wonderful time we can't wait to go back!

What a great experience! Staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating - from the bellmen, the entire front desk staff, the concierge and housekeeping - everyone bent over backwards to make our stay memorable and personal. The heated floors in the bathroom were so nice and "toe-sty"!!! Loved going snowshoeing with Brandon - would highly recommend this experience if you want to take a day off from skiing. Best omelet ever at breakfast. And the relationship with SkiHaus at the base of the gondola made ski and boot handling a breeze. Would definitely return and will look forward to our return trip!!!

Convenient location and an amazing staff will keep this trip in our memories for a long time. The concierge was a lifesaver helping set up activities and reservations for our trip. The breakfast buffet is out of this world and the hot chocolate is the best that I have ever had.

Returned to the Sonnenalp for a two-day visit with friends staying there. Check out the new look at Ludwig's. Don't see how the fabulous breakfast buffet could get any better, but the upgrades were quite welcome. Staff and facility were top drawer, as usual.
