So, we've been to sun valley in the snow season and stayed in a really high end hotel. We've now stayed in sun valley when pretty much everything is closed and there isn't a soul on the streets for most of the day. The Tamarack is strange because, given the heavy use in the winter, it has the telltale signs...

Staff was very helpful in suggesting everything from restaurants, bars and taxi companies. Location was great--walking distance to a lot of shops. We loved Sun Valley and wished we had more time there. Room was spacious, bed was very comfortable, and our balcony had a nice view. Would love to come back someday!

Stayed for weekend of skiing with kids. Location is great and easy to walk to everything. Staff was friendly. Rooms in good shape, looks like recently worked on, so had fresh and clean. Only dig is walls are not very thick as you could hear a lot in stairway and room above. Worked out for us as I think we...

After driving by Tamarack for years, stayed one night in March, 2017. Check in was courteous, fast and efficient. Room was large, with a bedroom separated from a sitting area. Decent bathroom with tub/shower. Had a microwave and refrigerator. Decor was a little dated, but was clean and comfortable. Main floor rooms have a small outdoor patio with table and...

We stayed at the end of December for a couple of nights. This hotel is in a great location, so much to walk to in Ketchum and that was definitely a huge plus. The rooms however can use some major updating. The fireplace king suite had a very old couch and rug and the furniture was outdated. The bed was...

Great old-school ski resort-style lodging with amenities like suites with wood burning stoves. Fair price for cozy comfort in the village center - walk to restaurants and shops. Word to the wise, get a room on the top/ 3rd floor. Our first night was less than optimal due to some heavy-footed, Paul Bunyon pacing the floor above us. Despite our...

The Tamarack provided a perfect location for our stay! We loved how we could walk to everything in town. Tom, at the front desk, was very helpful and friendly! He recommended some delicious restaurants in town that we enjoyed very much. We will definitely be staying at the Tamarack next time we visit Ketchum!

Did a sister trip with my three sisters. The Tamarack lodge is centrally located in Ketchum. Short walk to shopping and dining. The rooms are dated but clean. The price was good. The advertised free Buffett breakfast does not exist. After complaining they gave us some Starbucks gift cards but not enough to buy breakfast for four. Because of the...
