We made our reservation 6 months before we arrived in the second week of December 2014. Our rate was extremely competitive and included breakfast. Thank you Amex! The room was very large - a Blue Spruce Junior (not senior) Suite - and had two double beds. My only complaint about it was that the beds were doubles instead of queens....

We just got back from our two day stay at the Sonnenalp. Everything about it was top notch! They upgraded us to a junior suite with a mountain view! The location was perfect with the Vail Village right outside the door. The pool was also beautiful with a great view of the creek!! Breakfast was delicious at Ludwig's as well!...

When I walked in to the Sonnenalp, I felt like I was in a quiet, old Inn in old world Europe. It was laid back luxury. The walls are thick and it sounds, looks and feels quiet and old....in a good and charming way. The hotel has a feel to it. The rooms are beautiful. Step out of the contrived...

Facilities and amenities are fabulous. Rooms are nicely appointed and spacious. Staff is totally focused on excellent customer service. The hotel is walking distance to all the shops and restaurants in the area. A shuttle offers service to Lionsgate. Only issue I had was as a larger size person I asked the spa for a larger size robe and did...

My wife and I stayed at the Sonnenalp for our 48th anniversary. The room, food, and service was excellent. The hotel was very helpful to my wife as she needed a wheelchair to get to the breakfast buffet.

Great place for families. We had six adults and four children, a total of four rooms, and it could not have been more perfect: the comfortable accommodations, food, friendly staff, spa and pool and amenities. Our entire group thought it wonderful. The concierge staff went out of there way to assist us. We were there five nights and wish we...
