The Limelight Hotel Ketchum welcomes all to stay and play at the newest hotel in the Sun Valley area. Located on Main Street in Ketchum, Idaho, the Limelight Ketchum opened in December 2016 to offer the warm, friendly atmosphere and high-value amenities that have made the Limelight Hotel Brand a lauded resort hotel experience.
Guests are invited to enjoy a well-stocked continental breakfast daily, including meats, cheeses and a rotation of hot breakfast items, and a happy hour in the lounge from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily, featuring live music and hand-tossed specialty pizzas and local brews.
Complimentary transportation to town, the resort and to and from the Hailey airport is available.
I was fortunate enough to stay at the new Limelight in Ketchum, Idaho in the middle of March. Living in Aspen, I am very familiar with the Aspen Limelight; they both have a similar feel. The Limelight Ketchum was very welcoming to guest and locals, and contained nice, modern décor. From the moment I arrived, the service was exceptional. I called ahead to give them my flight details and they were waiting for me with a sign in the beautifully remodeled Hailey airport, only 15 miles away. The bellman waited with me until I was checked and followed me up with my bags. The staff was all very friendly and always happy to give recommendations for local places to eat, activities and history lessons. My room had a generous minibar area with microwave, mini fridge and Kuerig coffee maker. There is a lot of storage space for all of your ski gear.
The Four Mountain Sports attached to hotel was so convenient. I told them my room number and they had my boots and skis ready at the ski valet. The wonderful breakfast is included with several hot items, pastries and fruit. The ski valet takes your skis and puts them on the shuttle for you. As soon as you are ready, they will take you to the mountain, which is just a few minutes ride. For return at the end of the day, give them a call and the shuttle will come pick you up within 10 minutes. The shuttle will also take you to most places around town.
The après-ski is great, and includes discounted pizzas, drinks and live music several days a week. There is a kids game room connected to lobby, a nice outdoor area with generous patio space, a pool and two hot tubs. The staff said it is very common for people to extend their stays, and I can see why as I had an amazing experience.
