Spent a week in the Lodge at Sun Valley Idaho in July 2015. The Lodge was recently completely remodeled and is in great shape. Did some walking and biking around the area. Bikes for rent were reasonable price and in good condition. Used the indoor bowling alley, played golf and saw the ice show at the lodge with the buffet,... More

We went to the Ice Show which I highly recommend for a great up close experience. It's an opportunity to see world class skaters and they even mingle with the crowd after the show. We sat in the bleachers which was great. The resort offers a dinner buffet, but the seating is a ways away from the rink. We were... More

We had a group of 12 people here for a week. The new renovations are great and something to see. The food in the restaurants was great and the service was great. The hotel staff was very helpful.

I stayed in one of the private rooms. Worst bed I ever slept in and the pillows were awful. i don't ski and I was here on business. the hotel itself was out of a movie in regards to OLD SCHOOL style. Dark wood and velvet accents were absolutely hilarious. I ordered lunch at the bar area and I think... More

My wife and I have stayed here in the past, and it was very nice. The resort closed its doors just after Labor Day last year, and reopened in mid-June of this year. The guest rooms were totally remodeled! The approximately 146 guest rooms were reduced down to around 94. The most "modest" room is now a suite!! The rooms... More

The newly remodelled Sun Valley Lodge defines elegance and classic sophistication. The historic Sun Valley Lodge-- the first ski resort in the country-- is now the most beautiful ski resort, in the best ski town in the nation. The lodge blends vintage luxury with modern comforts flawlessly. Well done, Mrs. Holding!

Sun Valley Resort is one of the original ski resorts in the USA and definitely worth visiting - though it can be hard to get to due to limited flights. It is a magical, small place with a huge mountain that offers superb skiing along with superb amenities on the mountain (both the expert mountain - "Baldy" and the beginner's... More
