4/10 Fair

Disappointment
I really wanted to like the hotel, but it lacked the polish and attention to detail I was really looking forward to. I am sad to say that currently I have a difficult time imagining I will return. About half of the valet staff seemed indifferent and unenthusiastic from moment one, keep in mind I was conscious to keep the tips coming in hopes of a warmer response. The front desk staff were lovely through and through. The room was in rough shape; extinguished and flickering lightbulbs were common in the room, the door handle was loose to the degree of being malfunctional (this is literally a deadly fire hazard). And the carpet is in serious need of cleaning/ replacement. I am an avid coffee drinker and used my rooms allotment of nesspresso pods containing caffeine, considering there is a $45 per night room fee which is supposed to account for the pods, I thought it would be acceptable to request more from the front desk, they never came. I ended up tipping a bellhop an hour later to scrounge some up for me. The staff at the on-site spa is very unprofessional, yet capable, so I feel conflicted here. I had great experiences at the restaurants on site. I can say with confidence that this hotels saving grace is it's location, which is far from unique. I recommend a more reasonable hotel, there are plenty to choose from in the heart of Vail.

The stay was wonderful outside of the food. I would recommend eating off site at the many wonderful restaurants in the area.

10/10 Exceptional

Sonnenalp was a fabulous resort hotel! The service was 5 star for being end of season, and as a valley local that is not typically what you get in a tourist community with lack of housing and high rental prices. The 15 "rooms" are fabulously luxurious and the online pictures don't do the actual room justice! I will note that the daily price for valet is $45 dollars compared to $25 at the Four Seasons, so if your pricing your room and plan to park include this.
