The only place we ever stay when we come to Vail is the Sonnenalp. It has become a family tradition for us. The service is impeccable -- so warm and welcoming -- always a smile. The rooms are thoughtfully arranged. We always get the Millbrook suite for our family of 2 adults and 2 children (7 and 10) because it...

Stayed here one evening for a quick trip to Vail for skiing. Booked a room with breakfast included. The excellent service started with the Valet and Front Desk and carried all the way through to management, who had a wonderful special treat delivered to our room. The location of this resort is perfect. The room was very comfortable and the...

Spoiled for choice of luxury accommodation here in Vail for us there is no choice - we have no problem making a bee-line for the Sonnenalp. The snow storm hit us on a trip down to Boulder but it was not really a hardship to be snowed in sitting by a cozy fire and watching the snowflakes fall. The impeccable...

We decided to stay in Vail last minute. We chose Sonnenalp as it seemed a romantic place to stay. We arrived early on a Monday for a two night stay and our room wasn't ready. The hotel staff was lovely and offered other rooms (for a small extra price) but we were okay with waiting. So they offered to call...

Great hotel facility. Extremely comfortable. Large beautiful rooms with great baths. Warm cosy and like a small country feel in a larger hotel. Wonderful European mountain ambience. Friendly engaging staff in Austrian garb. One of the top vail hotels without being a large chain. Wonderful and fair pricing. Would return in a second. HATED to leave. Thanks, Sonnenalp for great...

I booked the Sonnenalp for myself and a film crew while shooting a project in Vail. We all booked at different times and the person on the phone really worked with us to find the best possible combination of rates. Upon arrival, everyone from the valet, bell staff and front desk made us feel very welcomed and attended to our...

First timers and had very high expectations of Sonnenalp. The room was not ready at check-in... Okay - no problem. We went for a drink at one of the many near by restaurants and waited for a call. When they did call, we asked that our bags be taken up - again no problem. When we went back to the...

I chose Sonnenalp over the Four Seasons for our recent four night stay in Vail, and feel confident in saying I made the right choice. The level of service at Sonnenalp exceeds what we've experienced previously at visits to the Four Seasons. Every detail of the hotel is well thought out and designed to maximize guest comfort. We stayed in...

thank you for your comments. While we do not operate the ski rental at the Bridge Street Ski House it is an important part of our guests vacation experience. We will make sure this service is improved in the future.

This is our favorite place to visit while in Colorado by far. We frequently travel to Germany and Austria and feel at home at the Sonnenalp. For those who want an experience that transports you to Bavaria, the Sonnenalp is the place. The rooms are beautiful as are the public spaces--every detail done perfectly--cozy fireplaces, beautiful decor, thick soundproof walls....
