New Luxury Hotel Planned For Ketchum
Ketchum, Idaho - ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) - Ketchum is getting a new, much needed, luxury hotel in the near future. Trail Creek Fund, LLC, just announced what they are calling Hotel Ketchum. The Sun Valley based developer is behind some of the most successful real estate projects in the area. They are partnering with Auberge Resorts Collection, an award-winning operator of boutique luxury accommodations.
Auberge Resort Sun Valley is the first new lodging project to be built in the region since the early 1990s. The planned hotel includes a lively bar and grill and a heated outdoor swimming pool. It will also contain spa and fitness facilities and conference space. When completed in late 2017, the hotel is expected to significantly benefit the local economy.
“I knew that this would be a game changer for our economy. Because it would start to allow us to bring more balance, balance coming from more visitors, more visitors all year round. People on the streets, people patronizing the businesses that are here and then providing that meeting space, that community social fabric,” Jack Bariteau, Developer.
The 155,000 square foot project will have 80 to 90 hotel rooms and penthouse residences. Fourteen luxury residences with unobstructed views will be available for purchase.
