This review is for Sun Valley Lodge studio condominium. We have stayed at the lodge several times in the past and given it good reviews. Having to make last minute reservations and the lodge being booked we thought we would try one of their studio condominiums. The units are intermixed with what appears to be local residents or for us...

We took the chance to stay here even though it is currently being remodeled. I was impressed by the lodges' kind response to an angry client - they seemed sincere - so we booked 3 nights over Memorial Day. Even the old décor was classic and pleasant. The room was immaculate, the sheets and towels crisp and white, the coffee...

My husband and I always stay here when we travel to Sun Valley for ski/snowboarding holidays. The rooms are lovely, but our favorite part is swimming in the huge round pools (heated more like a hot tub), apres ski. We also love the lounge with the nightly bands (sometimes of the swining variety, suitable for dancing). There are roaring fires...

This classic Idaho Lodge is undergoing updating but the rooms available are still precious with wonderful furniture, heavy drapes and coordinated decor. We just about fell over when the clerks at check-in told us the Lodge would close Sept 1 for 9 months! They assured us the Sun Valley Inn (on same grounds) would be open for fall visitors and...

We went to Sun Valley for business and stayed longer for pleasure....and we would have stayed even longer if we could have. We went during the summer and we were concerned our teenagers would be bored.....we were pleasantly surprised at how much we did. From ski lifts to eat lunch, paddle boarding, fishing, ice skating, white water rafting, bike riding....

Sun Valley Lodge is one of those incredible classic properties that are a must stay when coming to Sun Valley for skiing. We were two couples on a short 3 day ski trip to Sun Valley.
