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.

Had a girls weekend to celebrate a few birthdays at the Sonnenalp this weekend and everything was perfect! The experience was fantastic from the moment we pulled in. The staff was great, the rooms are spacious, the spa was amazing! We will certainly be back!

My wife and I stayed two nights mid October after the Aspen leaves were spent but well before ski season began. This hotel's decor reminded us very much of a country inn we stayed at in St Moritz - white walls, tilt-out windows, fireplace. Very nice stay, very clean, comfy bed, huge bathroom. The "upstairs loft bedroom" design of our suite was unique and made it feel much larger than a typical hotel suite. We enjoyed using the outdoor hot tub and Spa fireplace but didn't book the Spa's services. Valet parking was easy. Hotel was conveniently located. Suite windows faced the mountain and interstate noise wasn't noticed even with the windows open. Staff was very pleasant. Would stay again!

We had a fabulous girls weekend! Highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Vail. The spa is outstanding, excellent service, attentive staff. Don’t look any further, this is hands down the best hotel. We will be back!

We have been coming to the Sonnenalp for years and it is our absolute favorite hotel/resort in Colorado. There have been trips to Vail where we stayed elsewhere but nothing is ever as impressive as this place. We communicated to the hotel that this would be our last stay, as we are moving overseas in March, and asked for a nice view (most rooms have one anyway). They were kind enough to upgrade us to a suite with a staircase going up to a loft which our daughter loved. As usual, the room and grounds were beautiful. Their spa is second to none and we both enjoyed a massage and their big hot tubs. There were a few things this time around that were a bit different and worth mentioning though. We arrived around 1:30 and our room wasn't ready which is fine. When we got to our room around 2:45 it then took 30 minutes and 2 phone calls to the front desk to have our bags brought up. 10 minutes in and someone arrived with a bucket of ice, no bags. Then they never gave us a key to the fridge so we had to wait for that too. We really wanted to walk around Vail before it got dark and cold and spent an extra 2 hours just getting into the room with our things. Also, I wanted to treat my husband to the amazing brunch at Ludwig's but it is undergoing renovations so they moved everything into the Bully Ranch. We love the Bully Ranch and have been many times but it just wasn't the same experience as being in Ludwig's beautiful dining room. I wish we had known ahead of time. Overall the Sonnenalp gets 5 stars from me, hands down, and we will miss it tremendously. I highly recommend you stay at this amazing place at least once when visiting Vail.

As this was my first stay in Vail I have no point of comparison but I wouldn't hesitate to book the Sonnenalp when I return. The service was phenomenal; literally every employee we encountered greeted us with a welcoming smile. The room was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was very large and exceptionally clean with a soaking tub and big shower with a separate toilet closet. The hotel location is also ideal with so many shops and restaurants in close proximity.
