Lodged amid the mountains and scenic beauty of Vail, straight out of a fairy tale with its scalloped rooftops and a balconied exterior, is the AAA 4-Diamond Sonnenalp Hotel. Owned by the Faessler family for four generations, the resort offers personalized service that makes you feel like part of the family during your stay. Schedule a treatment or relax in the sauna or indoor whirlpool at the spa, which Travel + Leisure indicates as “reason enough to come to Vail.”
Rise and shine with a European breakfast buffet featuring a variety of meats, cheeses, pastries, juices, teas and coffees. The abundance of on-site dining options makes it easy to find an ideal spot for lunch, dinner and cocktails -- a quiet place for a romantic meal or an energetic atmosphere with live music.
The lively center of town, Vail Village, is a brief stroll from the hotel. There you’ll find restaurants, bars and shopping hot spots. During the winter months, the streets are heated to make for a comfortable experience coming and going.
Back at the hotel, head back to a guest room or suite decorated with custom-made Bavarian furniture, evoking the feeling of a Europe hideaway.

“When you meant to book St.
Anton’s Hotel Post but couldn’t find the time to head across the pond for a ski
vacation, the Sonnenalp in Vail is a close second” -- Travel + Leisure
