The Review

When you stay at Sonnenalp in Vail, you’ll be next to a golf course and minutes from Vail Valley Medical Center and Cogswell Gallery. This 5-star hotel is within close proximity of The Steadman Clinic and Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum.

Make yourself at home in one of the 128 air-conditioned rooms featuring minibars and DVD players. Rooms have private balconies. Premium TV channels and video-game consoles are provided for your entertainment. Private bathrooms with separate bathtubs and showers feature deep soaking bathtubs and designer toiletries.

Pamper yourself with a visit to the spa, which offers massages, body treatments, and facials. A spa tub and a sauna offer a relaxing way to wind down after a day on the slopes. Additional amenities include complimentary wireless Internet access, concierge services, and babysitting/childcare (surcharge).

Grab a bite at one of the hotel’s 3 restaurants, or stay in and take advantage of room service (during limited hours). Relax with your favorite drink at a bar/lounge or a poolside bar.

Featured amenities include complimentary high-speed (wired) Internet access, a business center, and complimentary newspapers in the lobby. Event facilities at this hotel consist of conference space and meeting rooms. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours).

Son’s Wedding

The Sonnenalp Exceeded our expectations. Great Staff! A beautiful Venue for our son’s wedding. We hosted a “Gathering” the evening before and the food was delicious! We had never been to Vail before. The area has a magical quality.

Girls Night Out

We had such a nice stay at this Hotel this past weekend. From our arrival experience to our beautiful room to the wonderful staff, everything was perfect. I especially enjoyed the pool area, steam & sauna and our mudslides at The Bully Ranch. The location of this hotel is superb and walking distance to everything.

The Sonnenalp staff cares for us and our clients like we are family! The European hospitality, amenities and location are world class. It is a real treat enjoying a leisurely breakfast or lunch at Ludwig's in the glass enclosed Terrace, my favorite location on the Sonnenalp Property. Live entertainment is offered at times in the King's club which makes for a nice evening. The Sonnenalp is perfectly located in the heart of town which makes it easy to go for a stroll or get to a hike. At the same time, there is a lot of privacy and peace in the heart of town as the property is located along the very scenic Gore Creek. Our conference attendance grew by 50 % this year and there were a lot of individuals who attended the previous year. I attribute a large part of this to the wonderful experience and pampering our guests receive at the Sonnenalp. I'm a fan and can't wait for my next visit at the Sonnenalp!
