This review is about The Grill at Knob Hill Inn. Having been a long time Sun Valley goer, finally a great classy restaurant / bar has opened that provides a sophisticated and classy atmosphere yet remains casual. We sat outside in their private terrace area during a thunderstorm and enjoyed nature's show while under cover and below heat lamps. It was an awesome experience.

The quality of food is top notch.

You won't be disappointed so take the time to visit what has quickly become the best place to eat, drink and stay in Sun Valley!

After 33 years, we wanted to revisit Sun Valley as part of a Western USA travelling journey by car.
We made reservations through the Lodging Company for a one night stay.
Our welcome was more than expected, we got a personalized tour of all the facilities including the swimming pool area, bar, dining room and the outdoor sitting area for dining including the lawn which was surrounded by beautiful landscaping including the flowers in full bloom.
We had one of the most delicious dinners on the lawn and the service was excellent.
Our room was furnished with a king size bed and a fireplace.
The next morning we had breakfast in the dining room with a large variety buffet.
Upon checking out we were supplied with 2 cold bottles of water and chocolates for the road.

The owners even stepped out to wave us a good and save trip.
Our stay was definitely made very special.

Room Tip: Try to get a room overlooking the lawn area.

Thank you for coming to stay with us on your trip through the Western USA. I am delighted to hear you had a wonderful experience from the time you checked in, to your dinner on the lawn (by far the best outdoor space in Sun Valley) all the way through til your check out!

We hope you won't wait another 33 years to come back and see us!!

All the positive comments folks have made about this small hotel are absolutely true. However, it was on the main street in the thick of things and I found it a bit too showy and commercial for my taste (although definitely less so than the nearby Sun Valley Lodge). The best part for me was the lovely garden with dinner seating there. Dinner was delightful and well-prepared. Breakfast included was just an OK experience . . .not a good many cold selections and the hot selection was not put out until 1/2 hour later than the hour specified. Ketchum/SunValley is definitely an "upper crust" place to visit. If that appeals to you, you probably would love it and not mind the high cost (room was $300 a night).

Room Tip: Any room is a good room; they all have balconies and are very large.

I stayed here for my wife and I's 10 year anniversary. The staff was extremely friendly and the room was great, but a little warm during our stay (we were told ac units are coming to the rooms next year). Overall great experience with included breakfast every morning.

This is a delightful and wonderful hotel extremely well located in ketchum Idaho, within walking distance of the sun Valley resort.
The rooms are beautiful and spacious, and the staff could not be more helpful or friendly. I have stayed here at least 10 times over the years, and it is the only place I would stay in this area.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are lovely, biut the fireplace too. Is a bit more spacious
