We went for our annual skiing trip back in March, our first time to Sun Valley. Besides the US, we skied many places in Austria and Switzerland. Sun Valley resort and lodge is absolutely on par w/ the best. The resort is low key, yet has class and style. The lodge reflects the same philosophy (and probably has since 1936).... More

I stayed at the Sun Valley Lodge last weekend to celebrate a girlfriend's birthday. We rented the Guest Cottage (152). Wow! This place was gorgeous, not to mention that it was about 5 steps away from Baldy Circle, where you can catch the free bus to downtown Ketchum and the ski resort. Mind you, I was under the impression that... More

otherwise, this time of year is pretty boring. Stayed one night for "date night" with the hubby...lovely room, nice bathroom, wonderful walk in closet ") Comfortable, simple bedding...would have liked a room with a view for the price and the apparant lack of guests but it is what it is...most everything in the "village" was closed...nothing going on anywhere that...

Wife and I made our first trip to Sun Valley this winter so I could learn to ski. The location next to Dollar was good for the first day, but after that was more of a liability given that is is relatively far from Baldy. Regular bus service makes it a little better, but there are probably cheaper or better... More

This was my first trip to Sun Valley. The pictures online had me a bit worried as they appeared very dated. I was happily surprised to see that the units were handsomly updated. I couldn't have been more pleased. Modern appliances and decor

From the moment we arrived at this historical place, we were made to feel like family, not customers. Every aspect of this lodge is first rate. Our room was tastefully decorated, the view was unsurpassed, the bathroom was huge, and the bed was wonderfully comfortable. It also had the biggest walk-in closet I've ever seen in a hotel. A convenient... More

I always enjoy staying at Sun Valley's iconic lodge. The swan pond at the lodge entrance held ducks & a pair of nesting swans this time - so lovely to watch. Since my stay was for several nights I appreciated how quiet the lodge staff were while making room deliveries, changing out rooms & such; I did not know they... More

We have been coming to Sun Valley for the past 8 years for skiing. I am a bit hesitant to write a review since I want to keep this gem a secret but that would be a disservice to my fellow travelers. Everytime we have had a great experience. Ski area - Lots of groomed intermediate runs. The restaurants throughout... More

The hotel is gorgeous...numerous common areas with comfortable seating and cozy fireplaces, lounge with nightly entertainment, great restaurant (at least for breakfast-never got the chance to have dinner there), VERY comfortable bed and spacious bedroom (loved the chocolates!),fabulous...

My wife and I met up with another couple and stayed at this lodge. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and a turn down service was made roughly at 6pm every night where they left a couple small boxes of chocolate - was a nice surprise, and especially nice to have at times. The staff were very friendly... More
