Sonnenalp, Vail
Very Good8.0
Unique and Comfortable
The visit started with room #321 which had bathroom issues: 2 cleaning rags left behind on floor, a cracked single (rather than double, which was paid for) sink, paint peeling on a towel cabinet, no tub (though it was prepaid for), a light panel missing from the light above sink... No one at the hotel warned us that we were in a room less than we had prepaid for. I had to bring this up 2x to the front desk, and after 2 nights in the poor room another light panel fell out of our bath ceiling and we were finally upgraded to a nicer room. I also responded to a concierge request on "How are things going?" and that led to a discussion with the Pro manager Juan where I asked for, and received, free buffet breakfast for my wife and I. Wonderful things- heated bathroom floors, amazing bath towels, super quiet rooms, super cozy and inviting hot tub area with 3 hot tubs and an indoor/outdoor heated pool, great service whenever help was requested, super-convenient ski concierge location literally 20 steps from Gondola One (4 block walk from the hotel), and a nice location on the west edge of downtown center. The interior design is unusual, kind of "old bavarian ski lodge-ish," but everything was clean and operational, warm and welcoming. The main bar sitting area is super cozy with lots of little different areas to choose to sit, as well as fireplaces. Buffet bkfst Ludwigs outstanding, but Bully Ranch pot pie and burger were terrible. Wi-fi sketchy both rooms.

It was lovely. The service in the Bully Ranch was not as good as usual.

Couldn’t ask for a better place for a little R&R ... cozy, friendly staff, courteous bell, awesome housekeeping and perfectly located! They even had a Tesla super charging station so we didn’t have to go anywhere else!!!
