I stay frequently at the Sonnenalp and am never disappointed. The rooms are incredibly clean and comfortable. Fireplaces and heated floors in each room are an amazing touch, not to mention the humidifiers and chapstick! It is all about the experience at the Sonnenalp and you can tell the staff is happy to be there to help with any of...

I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely hotel back in August, traveling w ith a group on business! The hotel has lovely flower boxes on the patios, just a gem of a hotel. Most of the rooms have balconies and beautiful views. The location is superb. The staff was so very attentive, everyone from reservation department, banquet department,...

I had an amazing 3- night stay at the Sonnenalp! After seeing the other luxury hotels in the area, and being in the tourism industry, there is really nothing that has the authenticity, unique, homely feel that a luxury alpine hotel should have. From rooms, to the spa, to the restaurants (Swiss Chalet is to die for..), to the golfing.....

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this beautiful hotel. Everything was just perfect from a spacious room, to a luxurious spa, a great bellman (Paul) and even a loaner Volvo to go explore the mountain to go hiking. They also have a Tesla charger on site. We will return to Vail and definitely to the Sonnenalp! It...

My wife and I stayed at the Sonnenalp over Labor Day weekend. We had stayed there about ten years ago and enjoyed it just as much this time. Beautiful property, stellar service, wonderful location, and great breakfast (be sure to include it in your package).

So before I booked this hotel, I read outstanding reviews on this hotel and decided to book a weekend trip to Vail at the Sonnenalp Resort. It was nice but did not meet 100% of what the reviews stated. For a five star rating I would expect complimentary coffee for the price you pay to stay at this hotel. We...

Booked a room for just one night to celebrate the Jewish new year with family. Was honestly the worst hotel experience in my life. First, booked the hotel as feather free, told the front desk when we arrived (and the room wasn't ready) and the pillows and bedding were down. Then called concierge about the allergy and it took an...

Our stay at Sonnenalp/Vail was wonderful as always. We can hardly wait to go back! It is great during the summer months...and fabulous during the winter, whether you ski or not. The spa is excellent and covers anything you might desire. Excellent food, especially the breakfast at Ludwigs...and don't forget to stop in for an after dinner drink at the...

We had a wonderful stay at the Sonnenalp last weekend. The facility is not the newest but makes up for it by being very charming and welcoming.. They upgraded us to very nice 1-bedroom room with a nice view and a wonderfully new and comfortable bathroom. The food from room service or by the pool was very delicious and interesting....
