Reviewed March 5, 2014

Rooms: Large, spacious, comfortable, well-fitted out!

Views: Breathtaking!

Service: Fantastic! Friendly, personable, personal, and attentive (without being intrusive). Fastest shuttle service anywhere. Small-town USA at its best!

Food: Really outstanding. Breakfast to order and special requests met with a smile. I think our chef even 'borrowed' hand-made tortillas from his brother's Mexican resto to meet one request! Dinner was amazing and staff helped us get a resi even when place was overbooked.

The stay at knob hill was the highlight of my trip. I can't say I'll be back to sun valley for the snow anytime soon but if I was to return I'm sure I would stay here.
The staff are the most inviting, helpful and warm probably that I've encountered in all my travels. I broke my wrist on the slopes and the took me to and picked me up from the hospital, no questions asked.
The inn offers great rooms with quiet, comfortable lodgings. Great wifi, breakfast, jacuzzi and arguably the best restaurant in town.
We walked to town every night but the inn will be happy to take you anywhere you want to go.

This hotel has gone through a major renovation about 2 years ago and it was my first time staying there since the renovation. It's very warm and cozy, the rooms are large and the staff was amazing. You don't need a car because they will pick you up at the airport and take you to the mountains for skiing. It's walking distance to most of the great little restaurants in Ketchum. The restaurant in the hotel is top-notch and has it's own following of locals that know the scene, including celebrities. The breakfast, which was included in the room rate was excellent.

Thoroughly enjoyed Sun Valley and staying at the Knob Hill Inn. The rooms are spacious, modern and rank high on functionality. Also enjoyed the terrace when the sun was out. The staff is very friendly and proactive, gives the place a family atmosphere. Breakfast has a good variety and the dinner menu has a number of interesting dinner choices. The quality of the food is high. All around a great experience, fairly priced. Planning to be back.

Room Tip: choose mountain-facing room with maximum sun hours

The rooms were 5star great and the service impeccable! Would gladly recommend it to any skier wanting luxury and dedicated staff to make your vacation more enjoyable all round. Even the hot tub and sauna was excellent to heal the sore legs!

We recently stayed at the Knob Hill Inn for a ski trip to Sunvalley. The hotel was great. The rooms had all been redone. Nice large rooms, amenities, and the service was amazing. There were 2-3 shuttle drivers that took us to the mountain and all around town. They went above and beyond to make sure we had a good trip. They booked our dinner reservations, gave us tips for the mountain, brought our boots and skiis up each morning. We also had dinner at the restaurant, which was excellent -- and ate at the complimentary breakfast each morning. The pool area was also very nice. Would highly recommend.

My husband and I have stayed at fantastic hotels all over the world. Knob Hill now ranks at the top of our list! Super friendly staff, comfortable, spacious suite with beautiful mountain views and a wood-burning fireplace, generous complimentary breakfasts with great coffee, superb dinners...all in the feel of a small-size European hotel. Super access to Warm Springs. A plus: free passes to an incredible YMCA.

Room Tip: There is no spa, but I couldn't correct the setting on my iPad. Everything else was excellent.
