Map View of this hotel.

Staying at the Sonnenalp is akin to staying at a European mountain lodge – warm and inviting with a high level of personalized service. The majority of the rooms are spacious suites and ideally configured for families. Located in the heart of Vail Village, the resort is steps away from restaurants and shops and a quick shuttle ride to the ski area. The indoor/outdoor pool means swimming is a year-round option. The hotel also runs a supervised kids’ activity program during weekend nights in the winter. Bully Ranch is the onsite casual restaurant, with fantastic food and a perfect atmosphere for families. The experience at the Sonnenalp makes it one of the best family hotels in Vail.
