Last fall, the city of Ketchum was presented with five separate proposals for construction of hotels in the downtown area, and isn’t sure which will open for business first.
The proposals, sure to change the economics of the town, range from a 70-room facility to one with 200 rooms and accompanying townhouses. They range from a downtown hotel with little surrounding land to one on 160 acres.
The Sun Valley-Ketchum Chamber and Visitors Bureau believes proposed new hotels ranked at the four-and five-star level will not only replace hotel rooms lost when developers tore down existing motels and motor lodges, but will bring a new type of clientele to the area. The hotels do more than provide beds—they provide a luxury experience. There are high hopes for the hotels in Ketchum.
