My wife and I recently stayed at the Sun Valley Lodge. We were in Sun Valley for a wedding, but added a day or two of vacation before and after the wedding. This is a lovely hotel in wonderful Sun Valley.
The bellmen and the front desk staff were very friendly and helpful upon check in. Our king bedded room was spacious, very well furnished, extremely clean and had a great deal of closet and draw space. (We had a corner room which we believe is larger than other king-bedded rooms, so our suggestion is that upon booking ask for a corner room).
The facilities at the hotel were excellent. The spa is beautiful and the massages were very good. We saw an ice show (in the hotel's ice rink) which was really nice (however, the bleacher seats are somewhat uncomfortable) and attended a very good, FREE, concert at the symphony pavilion on the hotel's property. The restaurants at the hotel are good, but nothing outstanding. They provide a convenient place for breakfast, but we suggest that you also try some of the restaurants in downtown Sun Valley and Ketchum for breakfast and, for that matter, for dinner as well. The property that the hotel is on is really beautiful.
You should be aware that there is a daily resort fee ($11.70 per day at the time of our stay) to cover the "free" services such as valet parking, wifi, and the hotel's facilities including the swimming pools, tennis courts and paddle boating.
Our only complaint was with the concierge service. The concierge did not have a good knowledge of the activities in the area and was even uncertain about such things as the hours of the hotel's restaurants. We suggest that you do your own research into activities that you are interested in before you leave for Sun Valley. We recommend, a drive to Red Fish lake, going to the hot springs (Sunbeam hot springs, if you are willing to take the 1 1/2 drive from the hotel -- combine it with your drive to Red Fish Lake -- are usually not crowded), the gondola and chair lift up the mountain and horseback riding.
