We didn't stay here, but everyone said we simply "had to see the resort." Honestly, I don't see what the big deal is. If you like overpriced boutiques and food, go ahead and swing by. We wandered around for about an hour trying to figure out what all the hype was about. Maybe if you stay there, you'd like it... More

It's been a few years since I've stayed at this hotel In the interval years, the spa, grounds, and rooms have very significant renovations. Wow! The rooms are superb. Pool and meeting room areas all great for business meals. Gretchen's has fair quality food and feels too cold ( esthetic not temperature). Would definitely stay again but will avoid Gretchens...

Colorful October cannot be best, warm enough to lunch by duck pond. Expansive grounds. Over the top expensive. Several shops in which to browse, if not buy. Fabulous setting for jazz festival.

We drove here, while staying a couple miles away in Ketchum, to take a look at the property and shops. This place is just beautiful. Beautiful walking paths. Beautiful landscaping. Beautiful views - everywhere you look. Your head will spin! What's not to like about the Sun Valley area? Well, that would be NOTHING!

We took my Mom here to cross off a bucket list item. The rooms are small, but felt luxurious and the whole property is beautiful. It is a spendy resort, but had everything we needed and was beautiful with the Fall colors.

Played here on a weekday and got a special rate because they had punched the greens last week. $99 including cart and taxes. Greens were fine. Needed club rentals so got those for $45 and they were good clubs. Taylormade... More

This is a lovely location for your stay in Sun Valley. The grounds are beautiful, the location easy walk to town, and many activities and shopping on grounds available. However, for such a huge complex, they had one person working the check in desk. We waited several minutes while she helped another guest with a problem, only to have her... More
