I joined friends for the re-opening of Sun Valley Lodge from June 15-17, 2015. This is my 64th year coming to Sun Valley, so I have seen the transition and expansion from the Union Pacific and Janss years to the upward trajectory of the resort since Earl and Carol Holding bought the resort in 1977. The latest reincarnation of the... More

I was excited for my business meeting in Sun Valley to stay at the newly remodeled Sun Valley Lodge since the lodge has been closed for the last couple of years to complete a fairly significant renovation. Unfortunately, my three night trip was clipped at both ends for business scheduling reasons so I ended up with just a one night... More

We stayed in the Cottonwood condos. We had a 3 bedroom condo. The floorplan was great. The only thing that I didn't like was that the mattress in the master bedroom should have been replaced about 5 years ago. The resort was great. We spent time swimming, golfing and relaxing.

It is beautiful! The staff is all happy and eager to please. The pool is small but the patio furniture and loungers are so comfortable. Rooms were as pictured and expected. We missed the ice shows and practices, so make sure to plan for those, we heard they were great. The shuttle takes you to down town Ketchum which was... More

The renovations have improved the physical structure and furnishings. It is a more contemporary design without losing the character of its former incarnation. The rooms were outdated for 20 years prior to the remodel. Service is the question. Getting prompt service can be a challenge at any of the resorts restaurants. Always friendly, not always present or aware your breathing.... More

Stayed one night in 2BR Lodge Apartment. They may have added gleaming new renovations to rest of the resort, but this room was 1970's look and feel. Sierra Nevada Wing. No air conditioning, old smelly carpet, bathroom shower heads that are about 4.5 feel tall. Anyone over 5' will have to crouch and shower hunched over. Linens and towels very... More

The Sun Valley Lodge just reopened after being closed 9 months for Renovations. I took a tour the first day they reopened and was pretty amazed. They did a great job updating it but keeping the original charm. I was glad they kept the bowling alley and all the old pictures. The new spa is to die for. They said... More

This place is more magical in the winter... but it's fun in the summer as well. The pool... I will never forget it... You just have to try it out... The rooms are great... service is ok... Like most places in this area, the staff tends to be rather snooty and so you have to be very persistent with what... More

We are never disappointed when we stay at the lodge or the inn. The customer service is always on, the rooms are clean (although getting a little dated...so it will be interesting to see the lodge renovation and we are crossing our fingers that the rates don't increase). We love the pool year round. It is a little bit of... More

We were disappointed to learn that the Sun Valley Lodge (not the Inn) is closed for renovations this 2015 ski season. We just love the "old" ambiance of the Lodge so The Inn or other accommodations in the area just won't do. Unfortunately, there is no mention of the closure on their web site, so I spent a few frustrating... More
