Conde Nast Traveler honoring the Sonnenalp Hotel in Vail

Daily staff report

VAIL – Conde Nast Traveler recently announced the results of its 29th annual Readers’ Choice Awards, with the Sonnenalp Hotel recognized as number four among the 10 Best Resorts in the US and number two among the 15 Best Resorts in Colorado, with a score of 97.87.

“Conde Nast Traveler is one of the most reputable publications in the travel industry worldwide,” said Johannes Faessler, owner of the Sonnenalp Hotel. “To have been included on not one, but two, of these prestigious lists speaks volumes for us. We are honored to receive such recognition.”

More than 300,000 readers — nearly twice as many as last year — cast votes for 7,394 hotels, 606 cities, 500 cruise ships and 236 islands, in an average survey time of 8.4 minutes. The result was the 1,402 best travel experiences in the world.

Consistently named among America’s top hotels and resorts, the Sonnenalp lays claim to the mix of alpine adventure and European elegance that sets Vail apart.

What else you can do, depending on the circumstances, is to sue someone else. An answer is pure defense. The best you can do is not lose, knock the ball down and keep the other guy from scoring.

The Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running recognition of excellence in the travel industry and are commonly known as “the best of the best of travel.” Under Editor in Chief Pilar Guzmán, the Readers’ Choice Awards have become more selective and specific to the passions that inspire today’s travelers.

The Readers’ Choice Awards are announced in the November issue of Conde Nast Traveler, on newsstands now. The full list is published online at
