Sonnenalp Resort Review

It's the sense of family tradition and European elegance that makes the Sonnenalp Resort the most romantic of all hotels in the faux-Tyrolean village of Vail. Four generations of the Faessler family have worked in the hotel business, and the Sonnenalp showcases their expertise not only in the Bavarian architecture and style (stucco walls hatched with wood beams and balconies with flower boxes) but also in the impeccable manners of everyone from front-desk receptionists to the waiters at Ludwig's. Room configurations vary from two-story suites to cozy rooms barely bigger than the overstuffed beds. The first-floor spa is set around an alcove fireplace, but the indoor heated pool flows outdoors and fronts a beautiful garden beside Gore Creek.

    Perfect Stay

    This property reminds me of a hotel you might find in the German Alps. The property is not big but it does not need to be because of its location (close to the Vail Village, biking and hiking trails). We received a free upgrade for no reason and we just loved the spacious, comfortable feel of our room. The bathroom floors were heated and the fireplace was nice to sit by at night. I had the best hamburger I have had at the Bully Ranch restaurant and the breakfast buffet included with the price of your room is fantastic. They will even make soft boiled eggs by request. The service at this hotel was really wonderful, free upgraded room, free bike rentals, late checkout and I could go on. This is one of the best places you can stay at in Vail. If you like charming hotels, in a comfortable atmosphere with top notch service this is the place for you.
