We stayed a total of three nights at the Sonnenalp. We were upgraded to a 1 bed suite with a beautiful fireplace/soaking tub. Most of the rooms have balconies with flower boxes filled to the rim hanging off. Our room had no balcony as it was on the corner. We were able to switch to a room with a balcony, but would have sacrificed the larger suite, so we opted not to. We viewed many of the rooms as our whole group was staying at the hotel. We were there for a wedding taking place at the hotel. Many of the rooms were beautiful. We especially enjoyed the heated marble bathroom floors. Luxury! And also the free internet service. There is nothing more you could want at this hotel for service. Best part of stay ~ The breakfast buffet each morning. Wow!! This is how it should be done...let all the other aspiring hotels take note as to how the Sonnenalp does things. The food was fantastic! The scenery/grounds were beautiful! We also ate at the Bully Ranch for lunch in the hotel. I had a Great Hill Blue cheeseburger that was to die for. Loved being able to get our local great hill blue out in Colorado. The wedding was held in the restaurant of the hotel and the food was soooo good.
I would like also to mention too that we waited sometimes for the elevators. The hotel was full and that would be expected, , but what was disconcerting was that the housekeeping staff was riding the guest elevators instead of the service elevators. We often had to wait. This did not impact our stay negatively at all, but if we were snobs, and paid peak season prices, it may have bothered us. I would give the Sonnenalp a good 5* for an excellent stay and excellent service. The Vail Village area is absolutely magical! Try the Creperie down the street, good gelato/crepes. Try La Bottega for italian. Try Tap room for excellent burgers.
