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.

My sisters and I added a few days in Vail to a wedding we attended in Golden, CO in mid September. We booked accommodations that had two bedroom suites where we would have a living room to gather in. This was the perfect hotel for this. It's a quiet time of year in Vail and we were offered a great deal when we checked in to upgrade to the largest suite on the property. Three baths, two large bedrooms, two balconies a dining room area and very comfortable living room with a fireplace and wet bar. It was heavenly. The staff at Sonnenalp are from around the world and were so nice and friendly and went out of their way to make your stay pleasant. The spa and pool area with three hot tubs (two outside) and a pool that is both indoors and outdoor was spectacular. It's also open from 6:00am to 10:00 pm so you could enjoy it at night which we did. I am not a breakfast buffet person but after looking at what was offered on their buffet I became a fan. The food was outstanding and such a variety. Breakfast is served in a solarium under pretty. We had drinks outside on the patio at Bully's and dinner one night at The Swiss Chalet restaurant which is a fondue restaurant on the property. I can't wait for another reason to visit this hotel in Vail. It was spotless, beautifully decorated and so very comfortable. So glad we chose it for our sisters get together.

We held my Daughter's wedding at the Sonnenalp. I will say it was a wedding she will never forget. From the facility to the food everything was just fantastic. We were blessed with a beautiful day and had it outside beside their babbling brook. Phenomenal. Our wedding dinner was held in their glass dining area looking at the mountains. The food was magnificent with a selection and quality beyond expectations. But the thing that really made it stand out was the staff. Everyone involved really cared and worked to make our experience everything we expected.

My husband and I stayed at Sonnenalp for 5 days in September 2017 and had a wonderful visit. The room and view were lovely. Very large bathroom with double sinks and soaking tub. The bed was comfortable. Staff helped us arrange dinner reservations and gave great recommendations on biking and hiking routes. Breakfast at Ludwigs was delicious and beautiful. The spa is extremely well run and relaxing. Plenty of chairs inside and outside for reading, relaxing, sunbathing. Nice showers, steam room and sauna as well. We can't wait to visit again next fall!

I love this hotel! It is truly wonderfully unique! The staff is always remarkable and friendly! As a Colorado Native who grew up in Vail, I appreciate the tranquility the property has to offer. There are many hotels in Vail but this one is very spacious but feels quaint and special.

My wife and I just completed a 3-day vacation in Vail with our daughter, her husbamd and their two-month old baby and had a great time. This hotel is perfectly located in the heart of VailVillage. Everything in Vail is very walkable from this hotel, although you need to take a free shuttle to Lionshead (less than a mile from the central village). The service at this hotel is exceptional and it is full of interesting (and very old) items/artwork from Europe (there is a similar hotel near Munich). On initial checkin, our reserved room was too small for our group. A young woman at the front desk named Gaby found us a much better option which really made our stay so enjoyable as we really needed two full bedrooms and bathrooms. Thank you, Gaby! The large suites at this hotel are amazing and I would urge groups of 4 or more to check into those options. We have stayed at Sonnenalp several times before and will definitely continue to do. A great time to visit Vail is in September after Labor Day. The weather is still relatively reliable, fewer crowds (although when we stayed last week it was Octoberfest so there were a lot of people in Vail) and before onset of cold weather and snow (and therefore ski) season. There is a lot to do in Vailin summer and early fall which is our favorite time to visit. The hotel used to be pet-friendly and is not now, which for us is unfortunate and I am hopeful they will reconsider, but that is about the only criticism I could come up with. Overall, this is a great hotel with a terrific staff.
