Sun Valley Resort announced their plans today to remodel the Sun Valley Lodge, the 148-room luxury hotel in Sun Valley, Idaho.  The Lodge will have remodeled guest rooms, the lobby, restaurant, and other guest amenities.

Some of the smaller rooms will be combined to form suites with fireplaces and expanded bathrooms.  Construction will also include a 20,000 foot addition featuring a full service spa and salon.

Sun Valley Lodge was originally constructed in 1936, and the owners hope to preserve the historical charm while giving it a fresh look and expanding guest services.

"Construction of the spa is scheduled to begin next month, with the full Lodge renovation to follow in September," said Tim Silva, Sun Valley's General Manager.
