Sun Valley Resort is North America's original mountain destination, since 1936. It has the distinction of being the continent's first ski resort - bringing the magic of the European mountain experience to America.

Sun Valley was instantly a phenomenon without peer and has since grown to be both the cultural and athletic hub of the Northern Rockies. From the crisp air atop Bald Mountain to the quaint shops and restaurants below, there is no other place quite like Sun Valley, regardless of the season.

  • Wonderful place. Rooms are amazing. Comfortable beds and beautiful furnishings and decor. The staff are extremely helpful. 
  • beautiful resort, just stopped by to "see" it ...think it lost a lot of it's charm when they remodeled it. 
  • 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 ...  read more »
  • My wife's family has come here regularly since the 70's. I hadn't heard of Sun Valley before meeting my wife, but we've been about 6 times in the last decade. Overall, the resort is top notch. I've stayed in the condos, the lodge, the cottages and this time is my 2nd time in the inn. We always enjoy finding everything that's changed since our last time up. The Inn, like the cottages and lodge, is very nice and has that "classic" feel of luxury. The rooms are very comfortable but show their age a bit with squeaky floors and ancient light switches. Oh, and there just aren't enough power outlets for our tech-addicted lives. The service is always great and the grounds are my exact definition of perfect. We love coming here and I'm sure we'll be back again and again. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because of single ply toilet paper in our bathrooms - there's just no excuse for that.
  • It was the shoulder season, so it wasn't too busy. The pools are great. Warm and made for lazing. The employees were all nice and the facilities were nice and clean.
  • The staff at the Sun Valley Inn was professional and helpful. The entire inn itself is very nice, with carpeted floors, displays with the history of Sun Valley, and wood counters. This would be a nice, albeit expensive place to stay.
  • Once I appreciate that it is old. I truly loved it. It just took a minute for me to appreciate the old bathrooms and showers, etc...
  • Ive been coming to Sun Valley for many years@ I love the Sun Valley inn because I used to stsy there as a child. While it has changed quite a bit, it still brings back great memories!!!
