We stayed here right before the end of the off-season. Hotel is amazing. Hotel is done in an authentic Swiss chalet look. Room was large and fantastic with a great bathroom. Staff was super friendly and helpful, with great hiking recommendations from the concierge. Well located in Vail and easy to walk. No snow when we were there so no...

Everything is great here - the people, the services, the spa, the pool - the whole vibe. 'Smores by the pool a particular hit! They make skiing easy with the ski concierge, they store and transport your equipment between hotel and mountain, and do everything with a smile.

Sonnenalp is our home away from home. We have stayed there over 50 times & it keeps getting better & better. Their attention to detail is amazing. It is perfect for families or couples. You will not be disappointed!

For a number of years, Sonnenalp has been our favorite destination for winter vacation. The location in Vail Village is par none, and the arrangement with Bridge Street Skihaus provides a location for skis, snowboards, boots, etc. that is just a few steps away from Gondola One. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable, and service is outstanding. My son loves...
