We spent a long weekend at SVL in July with a group of friends. I don't know what the resort was like before the renovations but it is gorgeous now. Our room was on the first floor at the end and it was huge and comfortable. We had a separate "living room" with a fireplace, desk, 2 chairs and a...

Came to Sun Valley Lodge for a wedding. The renovation is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and well-appointed, and the staff is lovely. The only thing keeping this from being a five star review is that there is nowhere you can escape from all the families! A place this beautiful needs at least some small area that is adults-only and...

Celebrated our 20th anniversary here and the newly remodeled Lodge is gorgeous! Beautiful framed photos from throughout the years tastefully line the halls. We received a complimentary upgrade to the Harriman Suite which was truly spectacular. You can watch amazing ice skaters, soak in the pool or hot tub, walk out your door for a hike or golf, rent bikes,...

Stayed at the Lodge this week and was so happy to see the renovation was in keeping with the old style but updated it to a new high level. The grounds and gardens are magnificent- the head landscaper should get an award. New pool area is much larger and they don't charge extra for cabanas which so many luxury hotels...

I joined friends for the re-opening of Sun Valley Lodge from June 15-17, 2015. This is my 64th year coming to Sun Valley, so I have seen the transition and expansion from the Union Pacific and Janss years to the upward trajectory of the resort since Earl and Carol Holding bought the resort in 1977. The latest reincarnation of the...

I was excited for my business meeting in Sun Valley to stay at the newly remodeled Sun Valley Lodge since the lodge has been closed for the last couple of years to complete a fairly significant renovation. Unfortunately, my three night trip was clipped at both ends for business scheduling reasons so I ended up with just a one night...

We stayed in the Cottonwood condos. We had a 3 bedroom condo. The floorplan was great. The only thing that I didn't like was that the mattress in the master bedroom should have been replaced about 5 years ago. The resort was great. We spent time swimming, golfing and relaxing.

It is beautiful! The staff is all happy and eager to please. The pool is small but the patio furniture and loungers are so comfortable. Rooms were as pictured and expected. We missed the ice shows and practices, so make sure to plan for those, we heard they were great. The shuttle takes you to down town Ketchum which was...

The renovations have improved the physical structure and furnishings. It is a more contemporary design without losing the character of its former incarnation. The rooms were outdated for 20 years prior to the remodel. Service is the question. Getting prompt service can be a challenge at any of the resorts restaurants. Always friendly, not always present or aware your breathing....

Stayed one night in 2BR Lodge Apartment. They may have added gleaming new renovations to rest of the resort, but this room was 1970's look and feel. Sierra Nevada Wing. No air conditioning, old smelly carpet, bathroom shower heads that are about 4.5 feel tall. Anyone over 5' will have to crouch and shower hunched over. Linens and towels very...
